Discountoid: Only a few shopping days left!

There's a little something for you to enjoy this holiday.

We're in the last week before Santa comes down chimneys everywhere, which means we're looking at the last of the bargains before the world ends in a fiery inferno of Christmas spirit. Or people will just wake up, exchange gifts and enjoy time with their families. One of those two things is definitely going to happen this week.

If you're still planning on the latter, you might want to check out some of the deals retailers have going on in the final run to the end of the season. Target has a great price on the Guitar Hero World Tour guitars bundle. Best Buy has cut the price of their EndWar package (featuring a wireless headset) nearly in half. And Circuit City is still going out of business in a lot of places and should have games discounted up to 40% (though the pickings were fairly slim last time I visited).

Hit the jump to see all the goodies you could put under your tree this week.
