Discountoid: Snowboarding, cheap Xbox Live and more

Something tells me they aren't as pure as the driven snow.

Time again for Discountoid. The deals are slim this week, but there are a couple that you should probably be paying attention to. First, Amazon has a great deal on 12-month Xbox Live cards, selling them for sixty percent of suggested retail. With the bonus month, that comes to  $2.30 a month for the service. Not bad at all.

Everybody has marked down Shaun White Snowboarding: Road Trip. Some are calling this a permanent price drop, which it probably is since every retailer on Earth seems to have reduced their price simultaneously. Oh, and check Best Buy for a great price on the new Prince of Persia.

Finally, don't forget that your local Circuit City is going out of business. The whole affair is being managed by a liquidation company, so there's no way of knowing how deep the discounts are going to go unless you visit the store but there are sure to be some deals available on games, hardware and other delights.
