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.

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.
