Nintendo deals: amiibo figures 25% off, Mario/Donkey Kong/Animal Crossing 3DS games $25, eShop 10% off

nintendo-amiibo-figures

Anyone who knows me (or follows me), knows that I’ve got a bit of an amiibo problem. I started out just looking to get Donkey and Diddy Kong since they are my favorite Nintendo characters. Then I got sucked into the amiibo vortex. Now, amiibo figures are peppered throughout my office. Sure I love how each figure can unlock exclusive in-game content, but I’ve got to admit the real draw for me is just how cool they look.

Now’s the time to get into the action if you’ve been sitting on the sidelines of the amiibo craze. Target is taking 25% off all in-stock amiibo figures online and in-store. Typically priced at $12.99 each, this sale drops the final price down to $9.74. REDcard holders will save an additional 5% and get free shipping on all orders. All other buyers will need to spend $25+ to sidestep shipping costs.

mario-kart-7-3ds

It’s no secret that Nintendo makes the best games for its consoles. The only problem is that they are rarely discounted. But right now Best Buy (matched at Amazon) has various Nintendo 3DS titles on sale. Gamers Club Unlocked members can save an additional 20% off the purchase price.

Standouts include:

We’re hearing some Target locations may have these titles marked all the way down to $14.99 (an amazing price) so it may be worth stopping by your local store.

nintendo-eshop-gift-card

Nintendo eShop sells downloadable current generation and virtual console (NES, SNES, Game Boy Advance) games, DLC, entertainment, and more. Just like Nintendo games, eShop gift cards rarely go on sale. Now’s the time to stock up while Best Buy is discounting $10, $20, $30, and $50 eShop gift cards by 10%.

This PlayStation 4 Bloodborne bundle includes 2 games, a gift card and is on sale for just $400

Console bundles put together by retailers are often a mixed bag. Most of the time they include one great item along with a bunch of random things you’d never buy otherwise (I’m looking at you GameStop), but sometimes they are actually packed with quality items at a discount. Those are the bundles we target. We saw Walmart step up this week with a great New Nintendo 3DS XL bundle and now Amazon is offering a quality PlayStation 4 bundle…

bloodborne-overview-coop-screen-01-ps4-us-25feb15

This bundle includes a 500GB PlayStation 4 console, a physical (disc) copy of Bloodborne, a digital copy of The Last of Us, and a $20 gift card for just $399.99 shipped. The Last of Us is often included with a PS4 console so we won’t include that in the bundle value, but the console itself sells for $400, Bloodborne is worth $60, and the gift card is, of course, worth $20. So you’re saving $80 or you could look at it as getting a free copy of Bloodborne and a free $20 to spend at Amazon. Either way, it’s a great value.

bloodborne-overview-offensive-parry-screen-01-ps4-us-25feb15

Most importantly, the bundle doesn’t include any crap. Bloodborne is a PS4 exclusive title that has been universally praised by critics and everyday gamers. If you have a PS4, you’re going to get this game anyways so you might as well get it for “free” with this bundle.

Pad your game library this weekend with 10% off the PlayStation Store.
