Save up to 60 percent on Nintendo Switch games and accessories ahead of Amazon Prime Day
Happy Prime Day! Click here to see the latest Nintendo Switch deals happening on Amazon July 12 and 13.
Amazon Prime Day 2022 is less than a month away, but you don't need to wait for the 48-hour sale — which takes place on July 12 and 13 — to find deals worth adding to your cart. Countless items have received markdowns in preparation for the event, including pricey tech devices that rarely go on sale.
Nintendo fans, we're looking at you: Right now, Amazon has discounts on Switch controllers, accessories, and even your favorite games. Like Prime Day itself, some of the early deals are only available to Prime members. If you're not signed up yet, start a free trial before you shop to make the most of every available offer.
This year's Prime Day is sure to be a sale for the ages, but if you have specific Nintendo items on your wish list, it could be in your best interest to shop now. Seasoned Prime Day shoppers know that tech products usually sell out the fastest during the event, given how hard it is to find them on sale the rest of the year.
Thankfully, that's where Amazon's early Prime Day deals come in to save the day. When you shop now, you'll secure bundles like the Nintendo Switch Lite Bundle with a 128GB MicroSD Card, which offers the console with an extra memory card that will come in handy when downloading digital-only games.
