Mario Day 2022 falls on March 10. That means we're days away from the best Mario Day deals of the season. Mario Day is an annual celebration of our favorite mustached plumber. 

As a result, retailers from Amazon to Walmart will offer Mario Day sales that knock up to 35% off accessories, games, and more. We may even see some Switch console deals. (But don't expect deals on the Switch OLED). So if you're looking for a console, make sure to follow our where to buy Nintendo Switch guide. Otherwise, here are the best Mario Day sales you can get right now. (Make sure to follow our Nintendo Switch deals coverage for more Nintendo sales).
