TL;DR: As of Aug. 25, over a dozen Nintendo Switch accessories are on sale at Best Buy for up to 50% off.
You finally did it. You managed to track down a Nintendo Switch.
First off: Congratulations! Both the regular Switch and the Switch Lite have been sold out everywhere for most of 2020, so you were incredibly lucky to find one in stock. Consider buying a lottery ticket or two while you’re at it.
Secondly: After taking advantage of Nintendo’s ongoing Share the Fun savings event to score some games for cheap, be sure to head over to Best Buy for deals on all the Switch accessories you could ever want and/or need, including controllers, cases, a portable charger, and more. (The last time we checked, most items were enjoying discounts of 40 to 50% off retail price.)
