In addition to Amazon’s deals, other retailers like Target, Walmart, and Best Buy are hosting competing anti-Prime Day sales. Walmart’s deals went live last night, and Amazon is gradually adding its own deals before the official start of Prime Day. And if you’re shopping Prime Day deals for holiday gifts, don’t forget to check out our Nintendo Switch gift guide.
Nintendo Switch game deals
Numerous first-party Nintendo Switch deals are on sale for $20 off for Prime Day 2020, including New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, Splatoon 2, Mario Tennis Aces, and Super Mario Party. Animal Crossing: New Horizons is discounted to $50 at Walmart, which matches the best deal we’ve seen on the wildly popular 2020 hit. There are great deals on third-party Nintendo Switch games too, such as NBA 2K21 for $35.
Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite deals
Considering that the Nintendo Switch has been in and out of stock all year, there’s no guarantee we’ll see deals on the console itself during Prime Day. Last year, we saw several deals, though. The Switch was $265 on Ebay during Prime Day. Amazon gave away $35 of eShop credit with the purchase of a Switch. And Walmart had a bundle that let you pick one of four first-party games and a carrying case for $329.
We’ll have to wait and see if retailers create new bundles this year, or if there will be any straight-up discounts. It is worth noting that if you’re in the market for a Nintendo Switch, the special-edition Animal Crossing console is currently in stock at Amazon.
Nintendo Switch accessory deals
Plenty of Nintendo Switch accessories are practically must-haves, including a carrying case, screen protector, microSD card, and extra controllers. First-party Nintendo Switch controllers are generally quite pricey, with a pair of Joy-Con costing $80 and the Switch Pro controller going for $70.
If last year’s Prime Day sale is any indication, you can expect to see some great deals on accessories. Joy-Con were discounted to $60 last year, which is the best price since the Switch launched more than three years ago. Pro controllers were also $20 off at just $50. Hopefully we’ll see both of these deals return. Of course, we’ll also see a ton of third-party accessory deals. If you’re in the market for a carrying case or high-capacity microSD card, you’ll want to check out the deals on Prime Day.
So far, we haven’t seen any deals on first-party controllers or accessories, but you can nab this cool Breath of the Wild-themed Switch cover for $8 (was $30). The foldable cover protects the screen when not in use and also doubles as a stand.
Nintendo Switch Online Prime Day 2020 deals
We already know of one deal for Nintendo Switch Online. Amazon will bundle a 12-month family subscription ($35) and a SanDisk 128GB microSD card for 36% off. We assume it will be the officially licensed microSD card, which would bring the total price to $44.80, down from $70. We’ll have to wait and see if we see discounts on standalone family or individual memberships. Target offered individual memberships for $15 during Black Friday last year, but in general, Switch Online deals are rare.
More Nintendo deals
While Nintendo Switch products will (and already are) dominating Prime Day for the publisher, they aren’t the only Nintendo-themed deals you can find. We’ll be rounding up all of the best Nintendo toy, merch, and apparel deals here as well. For now, you can get 25% off the brand-new Jenga: Super Mario edition.
