The best weekend deals: Nintendo eShop gift cards, Apple devices, and more

Ars-Technica

It’s the weekend, which means it’s time for another Dealmaster. Our latest roundup of the web’s best tech deals includes a discount on Nintendo eShop gift cards. As of this writing, you can get a $50 digital gift card from Nintendo’s online game store for $45 on Amazon. We saw this same agreement appear last month; it’s still not a massive price drop, but it’s hard to complain about what’s essentially $5 free, provided you’re planning on picking up a digital Switch game or two in the near future anyway. This deal could also come in handy if you want to pick up a last-minute Wii U or 3DS game before Nintendo shuts down online stores for these aging consoles next year.

Other than that, we’re still seeing a number of notable discounts on Apple devices, with the Apple Watch SE, Apple Watch Series 7, 10.2-inch iPad, iPad Air, iPad Mini , AirPods and AirPods Pro, all currently available for less. than their recent selling prices. We’ve also got a new low price on a Samsung-recommended 128GB microSD card, a bundle at Dell giving away a $40 store gift card with Logitech’s excellent MX Master 3 wireless mouse, and tons of video game deals, including the best price we’ve tracked for Infinite Halo and ongoing “buy two, get one free” sales at multiple retailers. You can check out our full roundup below.
