If you missed our exclusive deal on the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 graphics card bundle last month, B&H is bringing it back in April for a few days only. Through Thursday, April 4, the powerful GPU with ray-tracing capabilities is on sale for $659, which is $80 lower than its current market price.

This week we also saw some excellent deals on gaming accessories, including $10 off Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons. Plus, Amazon is throwing in an extra three months of Xbox Game Pass, and Walmart is offering 20 percent off some popular strategy board games.

As always, if there’s a deal we missed or a category you’d like to see covered, let us know on Twitter at @PolygonDeals.

Best hardware deal: GeForce RTX 2080

B&H just brought back its exclusive discount on the GeForce RTX 2080 graphics card for Polygon readers. It’s on sale for $659, down $80 from its current list price.

Best monitor deal: Asus ROG Swift 34-inch Curved Gaming Monitor

Asus’s 34-inch curved gaming monitor can keep up with powerful GPUs like the RTX 2080 thanks to Nvidia G-Sync. At a 100 Hz refresh rate, it isn’t the fastest on the market, but you’re unlikely to find 144 Hz in a monitor this huge. It’s currently on sale at Amazon for $790.99, $208 off MSRP and the lowest price we’ve seen on it.

Best accessory deal: Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons

You can never have too many Joy-Cons lying around, especially for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate parties. Right now, Joy-Cons are discounted by $10 at Amazon and Walmart in a few different colorways, including the Neon Pink/Neon Green version that sold out at launch.

Best game deal: Xbox Game Pass

Microsoft often offers deep discounts its game subscription service, Xbox Game Pass, but currently Amazon is running a full BOGO deal. A three-month Xbox Game Pass subscription from Amazon Digital Service includes another three months free.

Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass service is one of the system’s biggest draws — so much so that we listed it as the first entry in our Polygon Essentials roundup of best Xbox One games. Today’s the last day for new and returning members to get three months of the service for $1. The service costs $9.99 per month (with a discount if you pay quarterly or annually), but Microsoft usually offers new subscribers just the first month for $1.

Best tabletop deal: A Game of Thrones: The Board Game

Walmart is offering 20 percent off a bunch of strategy board games, but with Game of Thrones Season 8 coming up soon, the best deal is on the board game based on Westerosi political struggles. As far as media tie-in games go, A Game of Thrones: The Board Game is one of the best. Amazon is matching Walmart’s price.
