Hurry! The Nintendo Switch just got a rare price cut at Walmart
Game Builder Garage on nintendo switch

Games and accessories often appear with discounts in Nintendo Switch deals, but the console itself mostly only gets a price cut during special occasions. If you can't wait for the next big sale, the good news is that there's a rare offer from Walmart for the Nintendo Switch that drops its price from $300 to $260. We're not sure how much time is remaining for the $40 in savings, but given the device's popularity, we don't expect it to last very long. If you want to get the console for a cheaper price, you should push through with your purchase as soon as you can.

Why you should buy the Nintendo Switch
To be clear, the Nintendo Switch in this sale is the original version of the hybrid console, not the Nintendo Switch OLED. According to our Nintendo Switch versus Nintendo Switch OLED comparison, the upgrades that you'll miss include the 7.0-inch OLED screen, a wider kickstand, and double the internal storage at 64GB. However, the original Nintendo Switch is still a worthwhile purchase with its 6.2-inch LCD screen, and the narrower kickstand won't be a problem if you're planning to play mostly in handheld mode or docked mode. The internal storage also probably won't be an issue as you can expand it by up to 2TB through a microSD card.
