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: $356Save $57:

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 Lite: $199Save $13.35:

Nintendo Switch Lite: $199 $185.65 at Walmart
Save $13.35: The Switch Lite retails for $199 and it's pretty rare to see any discount on it at all, which is why $13.35 is probably as good as you're gonna get. Amazon has also knocked down the price, but just by $4.
