Nintendo Switch Deals

This is one of our favorite controllers, and one of the best ways to upgrade your Switch gaming experience. It’s supremely comfortable to hold for long game sessions, and it has long battery life. It’s just a shame it doesn’t come in fun colors like the neon blue and red Joy-Cons.

This is about as self-explanatory as a deal can get. This gift card for $50 in eShop credit is knocked down to $45, so it’s basically an extra $5 off any games you’re planning to buy. The card balance doesn’t expire, either, so if you ever plan to spend at least $50 on games, this deal’s a no-brainer.

The Nintendo Switch handles multiplayer audio in an odd way, running team chat through an app on your phone. This is the best gaming headset to handle that. It can pair to your phone to get team chat, while still connecting to the Switch with a 3.5-mm cord for game audio. 

Nintendo’s official Joy-Con controllers can be a pain to use for larger hands, but the wireless Pro Controller can be pretty pricey. For the budget-conscious, this wired controller is dirt cheap and comes in a wide variety of colors.

Best Buy (Sold Out), Target (Sold Out), Amazon (Sold Out), GameStop (Sold Out)

Normally the original Nintendo Switch is $300 on its own, but this bundle comes with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe–one of the better Mario Kart games in years–plus three months of the Nintendo Switch Online service included for free. The latter gives you access to a small library of classic NES and SNES games, so you’ll have plenty to play for the price of the console alone.

PC Gaming Deals

Samsung Odyssey G7 27-Inch Gaming Monitor.

This curved gaming monitor supports both Nvidia G-Sync and AMD’s FreeSync, so you’ll get smooth gameplay with whatever graphics card powers your PC. We tested and liked it overall, but its retail price is way too high; this deal makes it easier to stomach. It has a refresh rate fast enough to keep up with whatever your computer is throwing at it. We’ve seen this monitor go on sale already this season, but now it’s down to its lowest price ever. 

Amazon, Best Buy

We haven’t tried this 27-inch monitor, but it’s the little sibling of the same-size G7. With a Full HD display, support for AMD’s FreeSync, and a 144-Hz refresh rate, it’s a pretty robust gaming monitor for a downright reasonable price, even before today’s discount.

SteelSeries Arctis 3

We like the Bluetooth Arctis 3 as a wireless headset, particularly when paired with the Nintendo Switch. However, if it’s more important for you to have one headset for all your consoles rather than going wireless, this corded version is an inexpensive option with great audio quality that you can use on just about any console with the 3.5-mm headphone cable. Since this is a wired-up headset, it also works great with both PlayStation or Xbox consoles!

We’re fans of a lot of SteelSeries gaming hardware, but this bundle has an Apex 3 keyboard, Rival 3 corded mouse, and an Arctis 1 corded headset, which collectively can cost upwards of $170 when purchased separately. Plus, the bundle throws in a mouse pad, so you have all the accessories you need to level up your PC gaming rig with one purchase.

Amazon, JBL, Target (Sold Out)

This headset might have an extra thick coating of Gamer Aesthetic™, but what it lacks in subtlety, it makes up for with incredible 3D audio quality. This corded headset works on any console you can plug it into, but when you use it on PC with the JBL software, the spatial audio soundscape comes alive.
