Black Friday may be over, but the sales are continuing through to Cyber Monday and beyond. Some of the best deals of the holiday have been for Nintendo Switch games, including major first-party titles like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Some of those great deals might be over, but Target has decided to do keep the savings going for a little while longer. Nintendo Switch owners can take advantage of Target's Buy 1 Get 1 50% Off offer for a selection of Nintendo Switch exclusives through Monday night.
The selection of games available in the Buy 1 Get 1 50% Off sale at Target is unfortunately limited, but is certainly better than nothing. 6 different games are available for buyers to choose from, each of them priced between $43 and a full $60. The list includes The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Party, Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu, Pokemon Let's Go Eevee, Splatoon 2, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. There are also two gift baskets available, which bundle candy with certain toys or games.
Given the limited amount of options in the sale, the exact amount of cash that can be saved is pretty clear. If a buyer picks up both The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, each priced at $59.99, they'll spend $90 and save $30. The Pokemon Let's Go games are priced lower at $42.99, so if a buyer chooses them then their savings will be just $21.50. That's between 20% and 25% off, which is a decent overall discount.
In comparison to the now-ended Black Friday sales, Target's new Buy 1 Get 1 50% Off sale is pretty good. For comparison, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was discounted $20 for Black Friday compared to its Target price, as was Splatoon 2 and Super Mario Party. However, Target's prices for Splatoon 2 and Super Mario Party are already discounted some, $10 for Super Mario Party and $16 for Splatoon 2, before the extra discount is added. As such, Target's B1G1 50% Off sale is even better than Black Friday, depending on the game.
While it is possible that these Nintendo games may be discounted during Cyber Monday, too, it's unlikely that such discounts would be significantly larger than what Target is currently offering. Nintendo games simply aren't discount often and when they are, they aren't discounted much. That The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which was a Nintendo Switch launch title, is still retailing for $60 a year and a half later is evidence of that. Take advantage of these sales while they're available.
Target's Buy 1 Get 1 50% Off sales for Nintendo Switch games lasts through Monday, December 2.
