It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time for another Dealmaster. Our latest roundup of the web’s best deals includes a bundle at Best Buy which gets you a 128GB SanDisk microSD card at no extra cost when you purchase a 12-month Nintendo Switch Online Family Membership at its usual price of $35. We have seen this offer a couple times before, but if you want to top up your subscription and can use more storage on your Switch anyway, this deal is a saving of around $20. You should see the bundle after adding the Switch Online subscription to your cart.

As a reminder, Switch Online is the Nintendo equivalent of Sony’s PlayStation Plus or Microsoft’s Xbox Live Gold. It’s usually not as essential as those services are on their respective consoles – nor as generous in handing out bonus perks like free monthly games – but it’s cheaper, it’s necessary to use online multiplayer modes games like Animal Crossing: New Horizons Where Mario Kart 8 Deluxeand it still gives you access to a set of Especially interesting SNES and NES Games.

If you only need the service for yourself, you can simply get a 12 month individual subscription for about $20but the family subscription here covers to eight different Switch users in one “family group“, so it’s a better value for those who buy in bulk. It’s also worth noting that this offer does not not include service”Expansion pack“, which starts at $50 per year and includes benefits such as DLC tracks for Mario Kart 8 and emulation applications for classic nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis games.

The microSD card, on the other hand, is the officially licensed SanDisk model that we recommended in older buying guides. There are faster options today, but its Rated U3 performance is still more than enough for the Switch, and it’s still usable for capturing 4K video with a phone or camera if you’ve already upgraded your Switch’s internal storage.

If your Switch needs are already met, our roundup also includes a return agreement that grants three months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Where Xbox Game Pass for PC for $1, but only if you are a new subscriber. If you are, this is a good way to effectively hire a a few hundred games for three months, including recent Ars recommendations such as Tunic Where Forza Horizon 5.

Beyond games, we also have the first notable discount on Logitech’s new MX Master 3S mousedeals on refurbished Sonos speakers and lower than normal prices on a indoor security camera we love from Eufy, Samsung SSD, various iPads and Roomba robot vacuums, among other recommended gadgets.
