Change Bundle Offers: Switch Console + Mario Game for $ 330 Details have changed since Sunday. Right now Best Buy seems to have the best option, followed by Walmart.
Best Buy has a guided page where you can choose which switch color to choose (gray or blue / red) and which game to add. But here's the kicker: Best Buy seems to be the only retailer where you can also choose the switch bundled with a $ 35 Nintendo eShop balance . So you get the Switch, a half-price Mario game and $ 35, which you can spend later on each digital switch game.

Walmart also has a special page where you can choose which switch color you want and which game to add. While Walmart does not offer the $ 35 eShop voucher, it does throw in a few Nintendo pins and, better or worse, a Paw Patrol case.

The goal is a little more self-service, but it works: Just add the switch console and one of the above games to your cart. When you prepare for the cash register, the discount on the game is applied to receive the entire order of $ 330. (There seems to be no e-shop credit or extras.)

Amazon, on the other hand, is a mess. It also has the products on a single page, but you need to put the console in your shopping cart, then create a backup and add a game. As of Wednesday, however, this did not give us a discount in our shopping cart even though he had worked earlier in the week. Conclusion: This deal seems to be dead at Amazon.
Discounted Mario digital titles are "sold out"
When the sale of Mario Day began on Sunday, many of the aforementioned retailers had the digital versions of the five Mario games on offer for $ 40, – from $ 20 discount. However, it seems that most retailers had only a limited number of digital codes available before they were "sold out". As far as we can tell, they went from Amazon, Walmart, Target and Best Buy.
