If a Nintendo Switch is at the top of someone’s gift list this holiday season, you’re going to need to be on the lookout for games as well. Target is the place to go today — they’re offering 50 percent off a Switch game when you buy one at full price. The offer applies to both in-store and online purchases, and if you buy online, you get free shipping too.

In fact, Target is offering free shipping on everything, all the way through Dec. 21, with no promo code, membership or minimum purchase required.

The Nintendo Switch games included in the limited-time offer are “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild,” (the No. 1 Nintendo Switch game of all time, according to GamesRadar+) “Mario Kart 8 Deluxe,” “Super Mario Odyssey,” “Super Mario Party,” “Splatoon 2,” “Pokemon: Let’s Go Pikachu!” and “Pokemon: Let’s Go Eevee!”

The 50% off applies to the cheapest game of the two, so if you bought “Super Mario Odyssey” ($59.99) and “Super Mario Party” ($49.99), you’d pay full price for “Super Mario Odyssey” but only $24.99 for “Super Mario Party.” With free shipping, the total cost would be $84.98 without tax (regularly $109.98). The discount appears immediately in your cart if you’re buying online.


If you’re looking for the Nintendo Switch itself, the best deal at Target is the Nintendo Switch with Neon Blue and Neon Red Joy-Con at $298.99, which comes with a free 128GB SD card. You can also get the console bundled with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, if you prefer, for $10 more at $299.99. ANintendo Switch with Gray Joy-Con and a 128GB SD card is $299.99 at Target, too.


The Nintendo Switch Lite is another option if you don’t have the budget for the original Switch, prefer a smaller and lighter system or only want to play games in handheld mode. The Switch Lite doesn’t allow for TV mode or tabletop mode, and it doesn’t come with Joy-Con controllers. However, every original Switch game that you can play in handheld mode is compatible with the Switch Lite.

Available in gray, yellow and blue, the Nintendo Switch Lite is currently $199.99 at Target.


Plus, if one of your friends or family members has an iPad on their holiday wish list, Target’s got you covered there, too. The retailer is offering an extra $100 off right now.

The Apple iPad 10.2-inch (7th generation) is on sale for $229.99 for today only at


Happy shopping (and Switching)!
