School is right around the corner for some people, but education may not look like it ever has. It’s a tough situation, and it’s unclear if schools are going to remain closed or open. However, you can still save some money during the back-to-school season, thanks to those annual deals popping up at various retailers. Newegg doesn’t have a specific back-to-school sale, but there are still plenty of deals you can take advantage of to snag a new laptop or build your own PC. There are a ton of discounts on PC gaming components and more.
The following deals are a collection of those available on Newegg. Some products feature promo codes that you may need to enter at checkout as well. We’ve noted those below. Please note that some PC components also come with free games, though not all of them–make sure to double-check this if you want a complimentary copy.
