Switch stars as Nintendo hits big holiday milestones in the U.S.

GameStop Cyber Monday 2018 Sale Kicks off with PS4 Spider-man Bundle Deal

If you've been eyeing up a new Nintendo Switch bundle, VR headset, snowboard, or Apple Watch Series 4 - but missed out on the Cyber Monday price drops earlier this week, this is the ideal chance to knock down the price tag.

Shoppers that missed out on Nintendos Black Friday offers this past weekend have another opportunity to enjoy a great deal.

Today, buyers can receive $35 in Nintendo eShop credit for every $299.99 Switch purchase. Overall Nintendo sold $250 million worth of products during the holiday, according to internal sales figures.

People weren't just buying the Nintendo Switch, but also other family systems like the Nintendo 3DS, NES Classic Edition and the Super NES Classic.

Nintendo eShop is home to a wide variety of digital games in almost every genre imaginable – from indie games at value prices to downloadable versions of some of Nintendos most popular titles. The deal, at present, is available at both Amazon and Target, but don't be alarmed if you don't see it right away.
