Best Buy currently has a couple of items for the Nintendo Switch for half off.

Insignia Glass Screen Protector for Nintendo Switch 2-PK [bestbuy.com] - $4.99 NLA

Insignia Compact Travel Stand for Nintendo Switch & Switch Lite [bestbuy.com] - $4.99

Screen Protector - it has been solid, with it being in a bag and jacket and no scratches whatsoever. This has near full coverage of the screen, basically missing less than a millimeter on the sides (unnoticeable), and perfect from top to bottom. Clear with zero reduction in screen quality.

Compact Stand - One of the most compact stands I own and very grippy on its rubber padding. The only downside is the top "hook" which stands out from the stand when folded.

Was this advertised somewhere that gives the end date of the sale? I just got the Amazon warehouse deal for a Switch posted a couple of days ago, so these deals are awesome timing... except weird things are happening for the screen protectors. When I click the link in the OP I do indeed land on the screen protector page which shows them for 4.99 after half off... but then after a couple of seconds the page refreshes without my doing anything, and the price resets to 9.99. The price is 9.99 in cart, including when I check out. They are in stock both in my store for pickup as well as online. Is the sale on these over or is something hinky with my browser...? Does the sale price still work for you?

Shows $9.99. Perhaps it was a daily sale since Best Buy's price changes at midnight CST

The stand still shows $4.99

Anyone who has a $300 portable device that isnt' going to buy a $10 protector because they're waiting for a $5 sale has some issues. I bought mine before I had the switch, just like all my expensive electronics. Destroying a $300 device over $10 is stupid.
Makes one wonder why we don't expect $300 devices to come with these sorts of things in the first place if they're so necessary.

Don't know. But you can walk around with a cracked $300+ device. Me, I'll pay $10. Never broke a screen yet. Broke plenty of screen protectors though. And if there's 2-3 per pack, that's $3-5 per accident.

Does any smartphone come with a screen protector?

Because it's not worth it at $10.

It's stupid to pay $10 to begin with. I don't call it "destroy" if you got some minor scratches on the screen. This screen protector won't protect it from breaking.

Responsible adults who properly store and transport the "300.00 device" don't need a plastic sticker on the screen. Scratches don't magically happen, they are.from misuse.

Can you blame car dealerships why they don't add on auto insurance when you drive out? Or why bullets don't come with a gun?

We should expect a better product. It was a terrible design choice to put a plastic screen on a portable video console.

It's a plastic screen that will scratch, just by docking it. A glass screen protector is a good idea, if you want to protect your investment.
