Welcome to 2023! Switch gamers get first pick at deals with these great bargains. You can get a 1 year Nintendo Switch Family Membership plus a 256GB memory card for only $49.99, Ring Fit Adventure for only $55, or the officially licensed Taiko no Tatsujin Drum Kit from Hori for only $62.99. These deals and more below.
Nintendo Switch Online Family Membership and 256GB Memory Card
Amazon is offering a free officially licensed Nintendo Switch 256GB Micro SDXC memory Card when you pick up a 12 month Nintendo Switch Online Family Membership. Nintendo Switch Online lets you play online against other people in games like Super Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Smash Bros Ultimate, or Splatoon 3, download custom levels in games like Super Mario Maker 2, play free retro SNES games, save your game data to the cloud, and much more. The “Family” membership allows for up to 8 different account holders, not necessarily in the same household. Split the price among your friends for even greater savings (and keep the memory card for yourself).
Nintendo Switch Holiday Console Bundle with Free Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and 3 Months of Switch Online Membership Still Going In & Out of Stock at Amazon
The Black Friday Nintendo Switch bundle, which includes a copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and a 3 month subscription to Nintendo Switch Online, is still available at Amazon for $299.99. Note that it’s constantly going in and out of stock. Amazon is probably unloading the very last of its remaining stock and once it’s gone, it’s gone until the next Black Friday.
Samsung 512GB Micro SDXC Card (Nintendo Switch and Steam Deck Compatible) for $49.99
If you’ve started compiling a collection of digital games, you probably already know just how limited the Switch’s base storage capacity. With only 32GB of starting space (and some of it reserved for the OS), you’ll barely fit The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Pokemon Sword or Shield, which tap out at 13.5GB each! There’s only one expansion slot in the Switch console so you want to make sure you get the biggest card you can afford. The Samsung 512GB Micro SDXC card is fully compatible with the Switch and Steam Deck. Since this card boasts faster speeds than your standard Micro SDXC card (it’s rated for U3 A2 speeds), it also makes an excellent expansion card for your SLR camera, GoPro, or smartphone.
Ring Fit Adventure for Switch
Do you want to work out but simply don’t enjoy working out? Ring Fit Adventure is one way to get around this hurdle. Ring Fit incorporates a huge variety of excellent workout exercises disguised as an RPG game. An epic adventure awaits you slaying monsters and dragons, tackling new levels, traversing different environments, acquiring powerups and skills, all the while toning your abs and burning calories.
Official Taiko no Tatsujin Controller for Switch
Taiko no Tatsujin is an extremely fun and challenging drum rhythm game for the Nintendo Switch. The franchise is hugely successful and popular in Japan. There, it’s a common presence in arcade galleries where you’ll often see maestros performing superhuman combos on the highest difficulty levels. The Nintendo Switch game emulates this game in everything but its controls. Whereas in the arcade version you’re banging away on drumsticks, you’re relegated to using the button controls or the touchscreen interface in the Switch version. That’s where this officially licensed controller comes in. The Drum controller from Hori is a miniaturized copy of the arcade version. It’s responsive, it’s durable, and it will make Taiko no Tatsujin feel like a whole new (and far better) game.
No game is included so pick up the heavily discounted Taiko no Tatsujin Rhythm Festival game over at Amazon at the same time.
WD Black SN850X 2TB PS5 SSD for Only $199.99
The SN850X is one of the best SSDs you can buy for your PS5 upgrade. The SN850X is the successor to the SN850 SSD. It has newer flash chips (BiCS5 vs BiCS4) and an updated firmware, which combined offer improved sequential and random read/write speeds. For PC gamers, there’s also an updated Game Mode 2.0 utility that’s designed to tune the SSD for better performance during gaming sessions. It even includes a beefy preinstalled heatsink.
Anker 300W Portable Power Station Generator
Need plenty of juice while you’re out camping? This Anker portable power station will fit the bill quite nicely. Weighing in at only 10 pounds, this oversized power bank will give you 388.8Wh of power. In layman’s terms, it will charge an iPhone about 20 times, a MacBook Air 2020 about 5 times, or an iPad Air 11 times. There are several connectivity options, including a 60W USB-PD (Power Delivery) port and a 110V AC outlet.
Crucial P5 Plus 2TB M.2 PS5 SSD for $164.99
Crucial’s newest M.2 SSD meets all the requirements for your PS5 SSD upgrade. It supports transfer speeds of up to 6,660MB/s which is well above the 5,500MB/s minimum threshold. Yes there are faster SSDs out there, but if your intention is to put this in your PS5, then that extra speed is worthless because you’re bottlenecked by the original PS5 SSD. If you’re worried about opening up your PS5 case, don’t worry it’s very easy. Crucial has an official YouTube PS5 SSD install guide to see you through the process.
Bowflex SelectTech Adjustable Dumbbells for $379
Amazon has the best price on a pair of Bowflex SelectTech 552 adjustable dumbbells. Each dumbbell is adjustable from 5 pounds all the way to 52.5 pounds, or a total of 105 pounds for both dumbbells. This is a excellent practical gift for the muscleheads in your family.
Alienware Aurora R14 AMD Ryzen 7 5800X RTX 3080 Ti Gaming PC for $1999.99
There’s a $200 off coupon code that drops the price of this RTX 3080 Ti equipped gaming PC to under $2K. This PC will be able to push just about any game at 60fps+ speeds, even at 4K resolution. Sure, the RTX 4080 and RTX 4090 video cards are more powerful, but they are also hundreds of dollars pricier and their performance is wasted on pretty much anyone who doesn’t run the absolutely most demanding games at 4K with raytracing enabled or VR gamers with 8K headsets.
PS5 God of War Bundle in Stock
The PlayStation 5 console is, thankfully, getting a little easier to find this holiday season. It’s still sold out at most places, but not all. Walmart has the PS5 Disc Edition console bundle with God of War: Ragnarok in stock right now. There’s no queue or invitations to wait for. No guarantees that they’ll stay in stock for much longer.
