I would wait until closer to the date then you can use ShopperX's spreadsheet to sort the item by price/store to see who has the best deal. :)

DH and i are still debating getting it or the DS for our 7 year old. Its soooo much money, and I am not sure he would be able to properly take care of it. But he wants it so badly.

You can always use Google Docs to open it.

However if you ask again the week of, I will do it for you.

You could always buy one from Walmart or Best Buy and opt for the insurance. I've never had a problem with my son and video games but he's been playing them since he was 3.

I would say that you could also watch for other deals. Thursday Google Express had 20% off and the Switch was included. That made it $240 without any other additional items. That was a fairly good deal if you don't want the headset or case or the hassle of Kohl's cash and having to find a use for it.

I looked at that coupon and apparently the 20% off is only good up to $20 :? :roll:

this morning I gave him the parent lecture on not getting mad when playing video games and not throwing his Kindle when he gets mad. So the switch is out for now, but we are thinking of getting the Mario Maker DS.

My son specifically wanted the Super Mario bundle

Sorry I'm late to the party.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1IrC66il_gdV2fjT4CSwmG3v9zHPuwt_wkBcPNsfUXH8/edit?usp=sharing

The link above has all the video games by item. So if you also want to add a few game.

Recommended Games for Kids:
Overcooked 2 (great co-op family game) - $29.99 at Best Buy
Lego Games
Just Dance 2019
Kirby Star Allies
Rocket League

Pre-teens
Skyrim (Elder Scrolls V)
Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate
Mario + Rabbits in the Mushroom Kingdom

Adults only:
South Park The Fractured But Whole

Also, Given the switch has a lot of good indie titles that you can download, I have to recommend getting a MicroSD card. The bare minimum should be one labeled "Switch" 64 GB, however; I would actually recommend the 128GB SanDisk Ultra Plus card.
