Nintendo is notoriously stingy with discounts on its own consoles and games, which means retailers often have to get creative when they want to offer Nintendo deals. Right now, Best Buy is throwing in a free carrying case with new Switch Lite purchases (a $19.99 value). Since the Switch Lite is a purely portable console, you’re probably going to want to buy a case anyway, so this is a pretty good deal.

Amazon is running a few good deals of its own this week, including a $20 discount on three months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, another $20 discount on Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and a $5 discount on the brand new 4K Blu-ray of Knives Out.

Finally, the deals site Woot is offering Amazon Prime members the best discount we’ve seen yet on the SteelSeries Rival 600 gaming mouse. That particular model was our pick for best gaming mouse of 2018.

Nintendo deals don’t come around often, but this promotion is almost as good as a discount. You’re probably going to want a carrying case for the portable Switch Lite, and Best Buy is throwing in a free one with a new console. (Unfortunately the deal doesn’t apply to pre-orders for the new coral Switch Lite.)

When it was released last November, we liked Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order for its exploration elements and memorable supporting cast. Right now, the PS4 and Xbox One game is on sale for $39.99, which is $20 off retail price and the biggest discount we’ve seen yet.
