Save Big On Nintendo Switch Joy-Con Controllers At Amazon And Walmart

First-party Nintendo Switch controller deals are rare, and these offers could expire at any time.


A variety of colorful sets of Nintendo Switch Joy-Con controllers are on sale at Amazon and Walmart right now. Joy-Con controllers normally cost $80 for a pair, which makes them the most expensive "standard" first-party controllers at the moment. So if you want an extra set of controllers for Switch, now's a good time to buy them. You could apply the money you're saving to a great Nintendo Switch grip, such as the steeply discounted Satisfye ZenGrip Pro. It's also a great time to pick up a pair of Joy-Con alternatives, as you can save big on the handheld-only Split Pad Compact by Hori. Let's take a look at all the deals.

One of the most enticing deals is for the Pastel Pink and Pastel Yellow Joy-Con, as they're down to just $66. They're also sold and shipped by Amazon, with Prime members eligible for one-day shipping in select locations. These are your standard Nintendo Switch Joy-Con, offering HD rumble, two black wrist straps, and support for both the original Switch and OLED model.

Beyond this deal, several third-party sellers are discounting Joy-Con at Walmart. Keep in mind that these are offered by companies other than Walmart, but the retail giant will be the one fulfilling the order. They do, however, come with free 30-day returns, so you can shop with confidence. They're also sold by a "Pro Seller," meaning they've developed a reputation for selling high-quality products and are a trusted source for Walmart.

Alternatively, you can pick up a dedicated Nintendo Switch grip to improve the ergonomics of your Joy-Con controllers in handheld mode. Satisfye's ZenGrip Pro Gen 3 is our top pick, and right now you can buy it for $38 (was $55). There are also a few bundles available.
