Best Gaming Deals for August 2018

Itching to get your hands on a Nintendo Switch gaming console? You’ll be pleased to know that some retailers are offering some great bundle deals right now.  

Walmart is offering both the Neon red/blue Joy-Con or gray Joy-Con version of the Switch with your choice of the Labo Variety Kit or the Labo Robot Kit for $339. This deal saves you at least $40 off the total value price.

Mario enthusiasts, rejoice! Best Buy has the perfect bundle deal for you. For a limited time, you can get a free Mario+ Rabbids Kingdom Battle game with your purchase of the Nintendo Switch for $299.99. The game is valued at $59.99 and the bundle also applies to both Joy-Con color options of the console. These are great deals since the Nintendo Switch rarely goes on sale. If you get freebies along with a purchase of the unit, that’s a definite plus.

With all the money you save from going the bundle route, you can put it towards the purchase of some must have accessories for your Nintendo Switch. Amazon is selling the PowerA Nintendo Switch Joy-Con charging dock for $16.40, saving you $13.59 of the regular retail price. You can also get the SanDisk 64GB microSD memory card for the Nintendo Switch for just $29.60. That’s $13.39 less than what it normally sells for.  

If you’re not too keen on the Nintendo Switch and more of a PC gamer, then you may be interested in Best Buy’s gaming keyboard deals. Enhance your gaming experience with the Corsair K70 RGB Rapidfire mechanical gaming keyboard which is selling for $119.99 at Best Buy. This is a significant price drop from $169.99 which saves you $50. 

If you're interested in buying an Xbox One X gaming console, you might want to take advantage of GameStop's trade-in deal. Bring in your current  (working) console to get up to $300 off the Xbox One X. Depending on your trade-in, this will drop the price of the Xbox One X down to just $200-- its lowest price ever!

GameStop's offer is valid through August 28. Amazon has the best available deal on the Xbox One X $486. Sure, it’s just $13.00 less than what it normally sells for, however, it’s the best price option if you don’t have a console to trade-in.

Here's how much store credit GameStop is offering for each console: 

PS4 Pro: $300 credit
Nintendo Switch: $250 credit
PS4 (Slim or original): $250 credit
Xbox One S: $250 credit
Xbox One (original): $200 credit


Xbox One ($499 on Amazon)

Turtle Beach Xbox One Headset - $45 ($79 on Walmart)
