Mario Day Deals: The Best Nintendo Switch Bundles Still Available
The sale ends Saturday, so it's your last chance to snag this deal.
As with May 4 and Star Wars or October 3 and Mean Girls, March 10 is one of those days that has become inextricably linked to an iconic piece of pop culture: Mario. At some point in human history, someone realized that March 10--when stylized as MAR10--has an uncanny resemblance to the name of Nintendo's heroic plumber, and while Nintendo had no involvement in declaring March 10 as Mario Day, the company has since come to embrace the unofficial day of celebration. This year, many retailers are recognizing Mario Day by offering discounts on select Mario games with the purchase of a Nintendo Switch console. Here's a full breakdown of all the deals:
Starting March 10, you can purchase a Nintendo Switch and one of its Mario games for a combo deal of $330. The five Mario games being offered are:
- Super Mario Party
- Super Mario Odyssey
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
- Mario Tennis Aces
- New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe
The Switch sells for $300 and first-party Nintendo games are steadily priced at $60, so this combo deal is about $30 in savings. It may not seem like much, but if you were already planning to buy a Switch, getting one of its best games for 50% off isn't anything to sneeze at.
While many major retailers were initially involved with the sale, GameStop's offer was limited to Sunday, and Amazon appears to no longer be participating. We've updated this post to reflect which deals are still available and where it has sold out as of this time. Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, and Target were also offering $40 digital download codes for the above Mario games, but this deal seems to have quickly sold out everywhere.
Best Buy is the only retailer to let you choose a Nintendo Switch that comes installed with $35 Nintendo eShop credit as part of the bundle. Meanwhile, Walmart's Switch bundle includes a couple of free bonuses: a collectible Mario pin and a camouflage Nintendo Switch messenger bag.
