ThinkGeek, a wonderful purveyor of nerdy novelties, is currently running the best percent-off promotion we've seen all year. For the code, and deals on a Roku 3 and a Panasonic plasma TV, hit the jump:
At Thinkgeek, the code SKYLAB takes $20 off any order of $60 or more. That means if you order exactly $60, you'll be receiving a 33% discount, which is the best we've seen from Thinkgeek since before the holiday season. Of course, with ever dollar spent over $60 the discount percentage drops. Keep in mind that there's a $6 shipping charge—so you'll need to spend at least $46 to get this promotion. Here's some recommendations to get you started (all prices listed before discount):
• Olloclip iPhone Lens ($70) | Probably the best straight up deal available
I posted this Panasonic deal yesterday and after I went home I almost bought it, so I figured it could use a little more attention. Right now Sears is selling a 42" Panasonic plasma TV (model number TC-P42S60) for $400. Shipping's not free though, so to save $70 you should pick it up in-store. Still: that's a $400 plasma, perfect for most small apartments, at a no-name scratcher TV price. It's even got some smart functionality, if that's your bag. [Sears]
Update: Amazon's price-matched Sears' price, but only with shipping included. So this set from Amazon is $470—and still $600 or more everywhere else. [Amazon]

This is only the second discount we've ever seen on the Roku 3, which is currently the best streaming box on the market. Honestly, I haven't even been posting Roku 2 deals recently because the improvements in the Roku 3 are worth the premium, especially since it's only $100 at full price. But right now PC Richard is selling the Roku 3 for $90, with free shipping and no tax depending on your state. This box would look pretty sweet plugged into that Panasonic at the top of the post.
