If you buy a Nintendo Switch at Amazon for $299 (its regular price), you’ll receive a $35 eShop credit, which you can use toward a new game on the eShop. It’s not technically a price cut, though it’s an Amazon Prime Day deal that brings a much better value than the standard console offering. It guarantees that you’ll have something to play shortly after unboxing the portable console.

Joy-Con controllers are an accessory that you’ll need if you want to play multiplayer modes in games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and more. Those come in pairs for just $59.99 (usually $79.99) right now at Amazon.

Pokémon: Let’s Go Eevee for Nintendo Switch is $29.99 (usually $59.99) at Amazon. Nintendo’s own games rarely drop in price, and this is the biggest price reduction that we’ve seen for a Pokémon: Let’s Go game. If you want the Pikachu edition of the game, Target has the digital version of Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu for $35.59.

Note that if you aren’t seeing the prices listed above, make sure you’re signed into your Prime account, then try adding them to your cart.
