A Switch bundle is officially on sale for Amazon Prime Day. The deal includes a Nintendo Switch and a $35 eShop gift card for $299.99. This is a good deal given that the Nintendo Switch never really goes on sale. Bundles are pretty much the only way to save money with Nintendo. Prime members can buy it on Amazon now.

We know the Nintendo Switch Lite was just revealed, but if you’ve been holding out for a Nintendo Switch this could be a good option for you. The Nintendo Switch Lite can’t play on a television and doesn’t have detachable Joy-Cons. If you want to play great games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, or Super Smash Brothers on your TV, the original Switch is your only option.

A $35 eShop gift card won’t be able to get you Breath of the Wild or Super Mario Odyssey, but it’ll take down the price of them by more than half. You could also grab a couple less expensive, but still very good, indie titles like Cadence of Hyrule for $24, or Baba Is You for $15, which both earned Polygon Recommends.

If you really want your bang for you buck, there are plenty of Switch games that cost less than $10 on the Nintendo eShop.
