Sales on first-party Switch games are relatively rare, but right now Best Buy is offering $10 off several Nintendo Switch titles. They include many Polygon Essentials picks, like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and Super Mario Odyssey. And if you’re in the market for a headset for your Switch (or any other device with a 3.5 mm headphone jack) we’d recommend the SteelSteries Arctis 1 wireless, a nice entry-level model, currently $15 off at Amazon.

For those who’ve managed to get their hands on an Oculus VR headset, the Oculus Summer Sale began this week, offering discounts on VR games. The retailer is offering daily deals through August 9 — on Wednesday there’s a bundle with Superhot VR and Pistol Whip for $35.

Finally, Animal Crossing: New Horizons fans can pick up the officially licensed stainless steel water bottle featuring villagers’ faces for $15 at Amazon, $5 off MSRP and about $12,985 cheaper than pre-orders. (The pre-order demand broke Amazon’s pricing algorithm, sending prices skyrocketing.)

Due to a fluke in Amazon’s pricing algorithm, pre-orders for the officially licensed Animal Crossing: New Horizons stainless steel water bottle climbed to over $13,000 when it was announced back in March. Now that price tag is back down to $15, which is $5 lower than MSRP.
