Frugal gamers usually rack up on gaming gear on Black Friday and even Amazon Prime Day. However, retailers currently offer some excellent deals on gaming laptops as well as games and accessories this spring. In fact, in some instances, deal prices best even the top gaming deals we saw during the holidays. 

If you're looking for a PC game deal, you can preorder Cyberpunk 2077 for PC for just $49 ($10 off) from Amazon.
