Advertiser Disclosure: At Slickdeals, we work hard to find the best deals. Some products in our articles are from partners who may provide us with compensation, but this doesn’t change our opinions.

If you weren’t selected for Target’s exclusive video game promotion last week, today is your lucky day — Best Buy has picked up the mantle with its own video game discount, no rewards program membership or luck of the draw required. While supplies last, you can buy select Nintendo Switch games for as low as $39.99 at your local Best Buy, on the Best Buy website or through Best Buy’s official eBay store. The sale price is the same regardless of where you make your purchase, plus you’ll get free shipping either way.

Check Out Best Buy’s Switch Game Sale

Best Buy’s pre-pre-pre-Black Friday Switch games deal almost exclusively applies to first-party Nintendo games, many of which don’t go on sale very often (or for much less than MSRP). As we’ve seen in the original deal thread, this random early October sales event begs the question of what to expect from Black Friday 2021. Slickdealer dundiefundie predicted that these titles will drop below $30 during Black Friday, while Cheap_skater remains skeptical — history has shown that major Nintendo Switch games seldom fall below $40, especially less than one year after they were released.

For now, one $40 Switch game in the hand today is worth two $28 Switch games on Black Friday. It’s time to check out Best Buy’s Nintendo Switch deals:

Top Video Game Deals from Best Buy’s Nintendo Switch Sale

Best Buy and Best Buy via eBay are both advertising a $20 discount on The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD and New Pokémon Snap. You can still pick up a copy of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate at Best Buy, but it appears to be sold out on Best Buy’s eBay store. Two of the three featured games are popular and recent 2021 releases, which adds extra value to this rare deal. The discount may not appear until you add the game to your cart.

While the discount isn’t quite as deep or rare, you can still save anywhere from $7 to $20 on these Nintendo Switch titles. Availability varies depending on where you’re shopping, but the deals are identical across all platforms.
