Just in time for Amazon Prime Day, the likes of Amazon, Best Buy, and Target are currently offering a solid deal for those who want to pick up a Nintendo Switch. Buying the standard edition console for its usual $299.99 price at either retailer will get you a $25 gift card. If you happen to already pay for Best Buy’s $179.99 per year My Best Buy Total membership, you’ll get a $50 gift card with purchase instead.

To get the deal at Amazon, make sure to hit the “redeem” button underneath the price.

It’s surprising (and a bit disappointing) that this promo doesn’t apply to the Nintendo Switch OLED or Switch Lite. However, it’s worth checking out if you, or someone you know, are one of the few gamers that don’t already own a Nintendo Switch.

Even with the arrival of more powerful handhelds like the Steam Deck and Asus ROG Ally, the Nintendo Switch is still the only console that offers games like Metroid Dread, New Pokémon Snap, and The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. As part of Prime Day, there are also several video game deals for Switch stand-outs, such as Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, and Octopath Traveler 2.

And if you’re on the hunt for other gaming gear, found discounts on some of our other favorite gaming accessories, like the LG 1440p gaming monitor, Sony Inzone H9 headset, Samsung 512 microSD card, the Backbone One controller, and Joy-Con replacement sticks. Plus, great deals on gaming mice, gaming headsets, and gaming monitors.
