Where to Find the Best Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield Deals
My Best Buy members get 500 My Best Buy points (worth $10) when pre-ordering either version of the game. These points cannot be applied to the purchase of the game, but they can be used on future orders. Shipping is free, but you need a My Best Buy account (it's free to sign up) to qualify for this offer.
And if you happen to be subscribed to Best Buy's Gamer's Club Unlocked program, you can get either version of the game for $47.99.
As is the case with Best Buy, Amazon is offering $10 in credit to any Prime Member who pre-orders Pokémon Sword or Shield. The credit should be automatically sent to you after the game comes out. However, it's important to note this offer is limited to one use per customer.
Even if you're not an Amazon or Best Buy member, you still have the option to pre-order Pokémon Sword and Shield from other outlets.
Pre-orders are live on GameStop and Walmart for the standard $59.99.
It's highly likely more retailers will join the fray in the coming weeks and months. That could mean new and better pre-order deals, so be sure to check back to see if we've found any more solid offers.
