Discountoid: The Frugal Boys of Boston, protecting bewbs and more bargains!

That's how I always visualize Steven Tyler.

Time again for Discountoid! It's hard to muster up a whole lot of excitement this week, but we do have a few deals worth mentioning.

First up, it's not a bad week to pick up some Guitar Hero. Toys R Us has all of their Guitar Hero III and Guitar Hero: Aerosmith bundles on sale for $20 off. If you already have all the plastic guitars you need and just want to "Walk This Way," Best Buy can save you $10 on the standalone Aerosmith title.

Next, Circuit City is offering some decent discounts on a few first-party titles for Wii. Smash Bros Brawl, Super Mario Galaxy and others are enjoying $10 to $15 off.

This isn't so much a deal, but I thought it was worth bringing up. If you're a fan of breasts (melons, jugs, fun bags, naughty pillows, etc.) and the women that carry them, Nintendo has released a DS supporting the Susan G. Komen foundation. Pick one up and the Big N will donate $5 to the organization that's fighting the fight for snack trays everywhere.

The full list of this week's deals lies beyond the jump. And, if you're looking for something else to use all of that fat loot you're saving, might I suggest donating it to torment Jim Sterling help sick kids? Cough up some of that green over at the SingSterling donation page.
