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.
