Just in the nick of time for the holidays, the Nintendo Switch holiday bundle has arrived on Amazon. If you’re shopping for someone who has been yearning for a Switch, or you're just on the hunt for a good deal, this is a bundle not to be missed.

For $299 you get:

  • The standard Switch console
  • Three months of online membership
  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

We did the math and that comes to $70 extra value for no additional cost. We also appreciate this festive version of the Switch with the red and blue Joy-Cons.

Nintendo Switch with Three Month Membership and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe ($299 at Amazon)

The Nintendo Switch itself is a wildly popular console that is truly a two-in-one. You can use it on-the-go or while cozying up on the couch thanks to the built-in 6.2-inch screen. When you want a bigger screen experience, you can place it in the included dock and pop the Joy-Cons off the side.

When it comes to battery life, you can expect between five to nine hours depending on the type of game.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe upholds its legacy with Nintendo dropping new courses every few months. The key to unlocking those? Join Nintendo Switch Online--this bundle comes with a free three month membership. You get the latest courses and can play online with friends all over the world.

This is an excellent starter pack for the Nintendo Switch, and at $299 you’re getting an excellent value. You can score this bundle from Amazon right now and it’s eligible for free shipping.
