In case you missed it, today is Amazon's Prime Big Deal Days, aka Prime Day 2, aka October Prime Day, aka a preview of things to come on Black Friday. You could say that this is yet another sales event, with yet another disappointing round of Nintendo Switch non-deals. And you'd be sort of right.
But there are a few sneaky ways to save money if you're after a Switch or accessories, which is why I've put together this post to show you the best offers available this Prime Day. If you're looking for a console, then I think your best bet is to get a bundle offer that gets you some games and maybe a Switch online membership thrown in – like this $299 offer from Best Buy. See below for more details of this and other offers.
Nintendo Switch + Mario Kart 8 Deluxe + 3 months online membership to Nintendo.com:
$356 $299.99 at Best Buy
Save $57: If you bought all the components of this deal separately, it'd set you back another around $60, so this is well worth snapping up. This offer is sold out at Amazon but is available elsewhere.
Nintendo Switch Mario Choose One bundle:
$362.89 $299 at Walmart
Save $63.89: This Switch bundle gives you a bit of flexibility as you can choose between three Mario games, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, new Super Mario Bros or Super Mario Odyssey. These games retail $59.99 if bought separately.
Price check: $299 without the game at Best Buy
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild:
$59.99 $42.99 at Walmart
Save $17: There are various games on offer at Walmart, Best Buy and Amazon this Prime Day 2. This is one of the bigger savings, and Amazon is also offering the newer Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom for $55.19, down from $69.99
