Today's Best Deals: Nintendo Switch Online Bundle, $1 Xbox Game Pass, and more

Ars Technica

It’s Wednesday, so it’s time for another Dealmaster. Our latest roundup of the web’s best deals features a bundle at Best Buy that gives you a 128GB SanDisk microSD card at no extra cost when you purchase a 12-month Nintendo Switch Online Family Membership for the usual $35 to buy. We’ve seen this offer a few times before, but if you’re looking to upgrade your subscription and could use more storage on your Switch anyway, this offer is a savings of around $20. You should see the bundle after adding the Switch Online membership to your cart.

As a refresher, Switch Online is Nintendo’s equivalent of Sony’s PlayStation Plus or Microsoft’s Xbox Live Gold. It’s generally not as important as those services on their respective consoles – nor is it as generous in handing out bonus perks as free monthly games – but it’s cheaper, it’s required to support online multiplayer modes of games like use Animal Crossing: New Horizons or Mario Kart 8 deluxeand it still gives you access to a bunch of mostly worthwhile SNES and NES games.

If you only need the service for yourself, you can just purchase an individual 12-month subscription for around $20, but the family membership here covers up to eight different Switch users in a specific “family group,” so there’s no need to worry Buy in bulk for these offers better value for money. It’s also worth noting that this deal works Not include the service’s “Expansion Pack” add-on, which starts at $50 per year and includes perks like DLC tracks Mario Kart 8 and emulation apps for classic Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis games.

The microSD card, on the other hand, is the officially licensed SanDisk model that we have recommended in previous buying guides. There are faster options today, but its U3-rated performance is still more than enough for the Switch, and it can still be used to capture 4K video with a phone or camera if you upgrade your Switch’s internal storage have already updated.

If you’ve already got your Switch needs met, our roundup also includes a recurring offer that grants three months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate or Xbox Game Pass for PC for $1, but only if you’re a new subscriber. If so, this is a good way to effectively rent a few hundred games for three months, including the latest Ars recommendations such as: tunic or ForzaHorizon 5.

Beyond gaming, we also have the first significant discount on Logitech’s new MX Master 3S mouse, deals on refurbished Sonos speakers, and lower-than-usual prices on an indoor security camera, which we’ve picked up from Eufy, Samsung SSDs, various iPads, and the Roomba robots like vacuum cleaners, among other recommended devices. You can check out our full list of curated deals below.
