Best Buy is offering a few deals today that will be of interest if you’re looking for something extra when you buy a Nintendo Switch or a Samsung Galaxy S10. As usual, there are more deals to check out in other categories, too.

Buying a Nintendo Switch console at Best Buy includes a $30 discount on a Nintendo-published game. Of the nine games that are eligible for the discount, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze offer the most bang for your buck. With the money that you save, it would be a really good idea to pick up a microSD card with at least 128GB of storage for your Switch if you envision downloading most of your games in the future.

Also at Best Buy, you’ll receive a free Samsung Gear Fit 2 Pro fitness tracker when you purchase one of Samsung’s new Galaxy S10 phones. This deal applies to those who activate the S10E, S10, or S10 Plus with a carrier as well as to shoppers who buy one unlocked.

A Philips Hue starter kit with four smart bulbs usually costs $169.99, but Best Buy is offering all of that, plus two Google Home Mini smart speakers for the same price. So now, instead of having to use the Hue companion app to control your lights, you can use your voice to set the mood.

Amazon’s Echo Input is $19.99, down from its usual $34.99 price. This device enables smart features for your not-so-smart audio tech. Plugging it directly into your receiver or Bluetooth speaker via a 3.5mm cable or connecting to it wirelessly with Bluetooth, allows you to command the speaker with your voice using Alexa.
