Walmart Plus Week continues to roll back prices on laptop accessories. If you're looking for an external DVD drive for your laptop, here's a deal you might like. 

The Melliful External DVD Drive is currently on sale for just $17 at Walmart. That's $23 off, as it usually costs $39, and it's the lowest price I could find for this CD/DVD reader-writer. Not to be outdone, Amazon offers the Yotuo External DVD drive for just $14 ($3 off).

These are two of the cheapest external disc drives you can get now.
