This coming weekend is Memorial Day weekend; a long weekend for many in the U.S. and one of the year’s first major shopping holidays as retailers offer some big tech discounts. A few Memorial Day sales have already started, bringing deals on games and consoles, including one of the best deals yet on the Nintendo Switch.
Google Express, Google’s shopping platform, is offering a promo code that takes 15 percent off a selection of electronics. Notably, that includes the Nintendo Switch, which brings the console down to $243.95, which is the lowest price we’ve seen on a brand new (i.e. not refurbished) Switch. That code also applies to some more top gaming tech, including PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles and gaming accessories.
Xbox One players have some great deals to take advantage of this week as well. Wednesday is the last day to take advantage of the best Xbox Game Pass deal yet — 3 months of the game subscription service for $1. Plus, Microsoft launched a huge Backward Compatibility Sale on Tuesday, discounting over 200 classic Xbox and Xbox 360 games that have been optimized to play on Xbox One.
Finally, there are a couple of non-gaming deals to highlight. Amazon’s voice controlled streaming device, the Fire TV Cube, is $50 off for Prime Members, bringing it down to $69.99. And the retailer Fanatical, best known for its PC game bundles, is getting into digital comics with two new bundles featuring Tank Girl and Dynamite Comics titles.
