The official Amazon Prime Day starts at 3pm ET next Monday, July 16 and runs for a full 36 hours through 3am ET Wednesday morning. Like Black Friday before it, though, Amazon’s (fake) shopping holiday is coming earlier every year. Prime members can take advantage of a few deals now, like a new free PC game every day in July with Twitch Prime. Just link your Twitch account to your Amazon Prime account to download your free game.

Nintendo Switch discounts are still pretty hard to come by, but there are a few bundles this week that will save you some cash on a new console and game. Dell’s Black Friday in July sale includes a Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle bundle for $319.98. The game is on sale at most retailers for $29.99 so it’s not a huge discount, but we’ll take what we can get with Switch deals. Best Buy’s deal is a little better — half off Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Splatoon 2, Super Mario Odyssey or Mario Kart 8 Deluxe with the purchase of a Switch.

Commerce Team Picks

  • Microsoft announced a new special edition controller, the Sport White, “inspired by trends in athletics and sports lifestyle.” The slick new gamepad is available for preorder at GameStop and the Microsoft Store now, and will ship on July 31.
  • The first Nintendo-certified portable charger is now available at GameStop after Anker announced their partnership in June. The battery pack was specifically calibrated to fast charge the Switch.
  • I grabbed DropMix when it was on sale at Best Buy for $30 last week and have been having a blast making my own mashups. It sold out both at Best Buy and at Amazon when it matched Best Buy’s price, but you can still find it at Target for $47.90 which is less than half MSRP.
