Frys has 3DS preorder deals this week. The following are each 30 for preorder:
Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon Castlevania: Mirror of Fate Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Shin Megami Tensei: Soul Hackers
I'm in for Soul Hackers and maybe Monster Hunter. I've already got Luigi's Mansion on preorder from Newegg with a gift card deal.
EDIT: Just a note - I finally made it over to Fry's and preordered Soul Hackers, but it was kind of a nightmare. None of the guys working there even knew how to do a preorder. Eventually a manager was brought in, and then another manager. And then I had to pay upfront. I sure hope I get my game in April when it comes out...
I'm surprised no one has posted here about this yet; Xbox Live is having a huge sale this week with Games on Demand games up to 75%+ off. I just bought El Shaddai for 240 points ($3), and am thinking about buying Tom Clancy's HAWX for $5.

Uhm... I guess I could pitch in here... I noticed about 8 or so sellers on Amazon making some pretty sweet deals for The Hitman Collection listed as NEW. ($5 USD + shipping) (includes Hitman "1-4".)
Shipping averages $4-5 where I live in Ohio. A quick hop on the UK site seems to yield similar prices. Of course these are CDs, so if you like your stuff digital, then wait for a Steamy summer sale (or GOG). That's like, $2 per game. Legendary games. I decided that was certainly worth it!
Can't say much about patches or compatibility, sorry (using WinXP). But some quick read on the reviews and Google seems to indicate working okay on 64-bit Windows 7, all but Codename 47, which seems to be pretty easy to fix still if you just run it in OpenGL.
Used copies of similar games (Deus Ex, Half Life, etc.) go pretty cheap there too, especially for boxed collections, but GOG and Steam are about the same prices, never mind sales.

Newegg has a preorder deal up this morning for Shin Megami Tensei IV. $41.99 with promo code EMCXRXN225. (Think you need to be subscribed to their e-mail newsletter to use it, but you can always cancel later.) Even better for me since I have a $10 credit with them at the moment.
They also have Fire Emblem: Awakening for $34.99 with free shipping.
Thanks a bunch for the heads up. The Amazon DLC outfit is amusing, but it's definitely not enough to warrant the nearly 10 bucks more I'd be paying with Amazon. And it looks like the Newegg free shipping will be even faster to boot. I picked up Fire Emblem as well. I had been half considering it for a while, given the fact that US-released Fire Emblem games seem to always climb in value eventually and, considering the seemingly limited quantities of this one, I figure Awakening probably won't see much in the way of markdowns beyond this. May as well get it new for $35 now than pay about as much, if not more, for a used copy years down the road.
Amazon is currently running a really great sale on a shitload of digital PC games. It would take me forever to list them all, but highlights include titles like Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing Transformed for $7.50, Mark of the Ninja for $3.75, Painkiller Hell & Damnation for $5... a whole bunch of great recent games, and some older titles as well (Septerra Core is about $1.50... even GOG never has it that cheap. For that matter why in the hell is Septerra Core even on Amazon in the first place?).
Most of the stuff registers on Steam, but some of it doesn't, so if you're one of those people who won't buy PC games unless they're on Steam or one of those folks who refuse to have anything to do with Steam whatsoever, make sure you check to see how the games are distributed before buying.
The sale in general lasts from now until the end of May, although various individual and/or publisher-specific sales end within a few days, or a week, or whatever. I don't know if they're planning to cycle in new deals as old deals end.

Newegg's got a preorder discount for Mario & Luigi: Dream Team for the next couple days. $33.99 with free shipping when the game releases in August. Promo code is EMCXRVM222, and you need to subscribe to Newegg's e-mail list as usual.
They've been less generous with these preorder deals lately, but this is Nintendo first party, so it's probably still going to be the cheapest way to buy the game anytime soon.
