Okay, there's not a whole lot of time left to do your shopping for the holiday season. But for Gamers, any deal on the Nintendo Switch is a good one. GameStop currently has a pretty enticing deal on the latest model of the Nintendo Swtich (which boasts a better battery life than launch model) as part of its Game Days sale. When you buy Nintendo's console on GameStop's website, you get a $30 gift card. That's a pretty good bonus this late into the holiday shopping season, and you can get it whether you prefer your Joy-Cons colorful or solid great. Best Buy also has an interesting Switch deal of its own.

Best Buy was originally offering the same gift card deal, but now it's offering a different bonus ahead of the holidays. If you purchase a new Nintendo Switch at Best Buy, you'll get a free Starlink: Battle for Atlas Starter Pack ($60 value, though Best Buy currently has the pack on sale on its own for $8), which includes the full game, an exclusive Star Fox story mission, and various physical packs for the game.

Nintendo released the refreshed Nintendo Switch a few months back. The only difference between the new model and the launch model is the battery life. On a full charge, the new model can run for 4.5 to 9 hours in handheld mode, compared to the 2.5 to 6.5 hours of battery life of the launch model. The new model also bests the portable-only Switch Lite, which clocks in at 3 to 7 hours of battery life. Woot is currently selling the Switch Lite for $190, and Amazon Prime members can knock an addition $10 off that price.
