The new 34-inch Alienware QD-OLED ultrawide monitor is 10 percent off – The Verge
Update 1:37PM ET, March 9th: The Alienware QD-OLED monitor has sold out on Dell’s site for now, though the unique coupon code should be valid through March 27th once emailed to you. It’s possible it may still apply if more monitors become available.
Yesterday’s big announcements from Apple included a hot, new monitor to get excited about, but we all know there are already many great displays worth your hard-earned money. Enter, today’s deal.
The new Alienware AW3423DW 34-inch QD-OLED curved ultrawide gaming monitor just landed, and while Dell has it listed for $1,307.49 (normally advertised around $1,295) there’s already a way for you to knock a cool 10 percent off and buy it for $1,165.94. Getting this deal takes a little more legwork than most of our deals, but if our initial hands-on with this new monitor is any indication, it should be worth it.
According to Slickdeals, and confirmed by the Verge Deals team, you can subscribe to Dell’s email updates at this link and after about 30 minutes you’ll receive an email with a unique coupon code for 10 percent off Dell PCs, monitors (including this one), and accessories. Once you have that in hand, add the Alienware monitor to your cart and apply your code at checkout, where the price should be knocked down to $1,165.94 to offset the cost of sales tax, plus some. Yes, you’ll be opting-in to Dell’s email marketing, but you can unsubscribe at any time. Consider it the small price to pay for getting that rare discount while being an early adopter. Read our hands-on.

Alienware’s AW3423DW is an ultrawide gaming monitor clocking in at 34 inches, and it’s the first in the market to ship with Samsung’s QD-OLED panel. QD-OLED promises higher brightness while maintaining vivid colors at its brightest levels.
Another big announcement from the Apple event yesterday was a refreshed iPad Air, now powered by the same M1 processor that’s in the pricier iPad Pro models. That coveted CPU should bring impressive performance to the Air line, like it did the Pros — albeit for an even more affordable price. One of the nice things about this new iPad Air is that it is the same redesigned chassis as the outgoing 2020 model, meaning all accessories are still compatible.
So, it’s a nice coincidence that Brydge is running a 20 percent off sale on its iPad keyboard cases until March 13th. If you’re getting ready to order the new 2022 iPad Air or you already own the 2020 model, the Brydge Air Max Plus is now $119.99 at Amazon and Brydge’s own site. This combination case and backlit keyboard protects the iPad when closed, while offering a more laptop-like experience with its built-in trackpad. Though running iPadOS can still be a bit wonky when it comes to multitasking, these added input methods certainly give more robust options for typing and navigating.
