The Nintendo Switch is one of the most popular home consoles among gamers of various skill levels. While the games available are fun and interactive, they also cater to anyone who just wants to have a good time — no matter who they are or how old they might be.

One of the reasons why the Nintendo Switch is so fun is because of its wide variety of accessories and gaming peripherals that go with the console itself. Although the Nintendo Switch is plenty fun on its own, it could be even more fun with the accessories below — which are now on sale on Amazon and Walmart.

If you ever wanted to grab a sweet add-on for your Nintendo Switch, it’s a good time to be a gamer with these amazing deals.

Check them out:

While the included Joy-Con controllers are perfect for casual gamers, hardcore fans of the Nintendo Switch need something more traditional to get the most out of the home console. The Nintendo Switch Pro Controller can take your gameplay to the next level and it’s now on sale for $56.99, or $13 off its list price on Amazon.

The pro controller features motion controls, Nintendo amiibo functions, and HD rumble built inside, while it also comes with a USB-C charging cable.

The Nintendo Switch features 32GB of storage out-of-the-box, and while this might be enough space for gamers who really want to play the latest and greatest from Nintendo, there are others who will need more. The home console is expandable with a microSD card like the SanDisk 128GB MicroSDXC UHS-I Card, which is designed specifically for the Nintendo Switch.

It’s now on sale for $27.99, or $7 off its retail price on Amazon. With the SanDisk 128GB MicroSDXC UHS-I Card, you don’t have to worry about running out of space on the console for a while.

The Nintendo Switch is a unique home console because it doubles as a sleek and powerful handheld. However, it’s also a fingerprint magnet and prone to scratches, so a handy case like the JETech Protective Case for Nintendo Switch could help you keep the console clean and pristine for years to come. The case is now on sale for just $16.95, or $3.04 off its list price on Amazon.

One of the best things about the Nintendo Switch is its gameplay goes further than sitting in front of a TV. You can actually use your imagination to build something really special with the Nintendo Labo Robot Kit, which is now on sale for $53.85, or $26.14 off its list price.

If you ever want to build your own robot that interacts with video games, here is your chance with this deal from Walmart.

If building robots isn’t your thing, the Nintendo Labo Variety Kit can help you make a small piano, handlebars for a motorbike, an interactive fishing rod, and more. If the Labo Variety Kit doesn’t fuel your imagination, you can use the kit to make and program your own Nintendo Switch mini-games.

The kit is now going for $55, or $15.13 off its list price at Walmart.

Although two Joy-Con controllers come with the Nintendo Switch, sometimes they might break, you might lose them in the real world, or just want to have a few additional controllers for four-player games. You can save $10 on a pair of Joy-Con controllers for the Nintendo Switch at Walmart. Now priced at $69, these versatile game controllers come in gray instead of the red and blue pair that comes with the system.

We were all waiting for March for daylight saving time to start, but with March also comes something not so fun: Allergy season.

And if you’ve had a hunch that it’s been getting worse every year, it is. But hey, at least you’re not crazy.

Combat the sniffling with something more powerful than a box of Claritin: This 22-inch air purifier and HEPA filter from GermGuardian is $70 off today — and when you clip the extra 10% coupon, it drops down to just $71.99. That’s over half off.

The name “GermGuardian” may seem corny, but it’s literally what this thing can do for a room (up to 167 square feet). The HEPA filter captures 99.7 percent of allergens like household dust, pet dander, mold spores, and plant pollens, even as small as .3 microns. Not only is it cleaning the air by trapping particles you can’t even see, but it’s making it smell better, too. The filter battles odors like cigarette smoke, litter boxes, or overly-smelly furnaces to provide a fresher feel every time you walk into the room.

If you’re extra worried about germs, turn on the UV-C light sanitizer. This technology works with Titanium Dioxide to pull in airborne bacteria, viruses, germs, and mold spores, kill the harmful stuff, and spit cleaner air back out.

Amazon customer Great Cook writes:

“I’ve been using GermGuardian air sanitizers for years.. the most impressive thing I can tell you is I haven’t even had a cold in all that time. Every room in my home has at least one unit of some kind. This all started after radiation treatments following cancer surgery, when I was warned my immune system would be affected, well it may have been, but these units have kept me in perfect health! I can’t say anything better than that, they work! They not only sanitize the air, they also kill mold spores, so there is one in my basement as well.. and the house always smells so fresh, even with multiple cats in residence! I highly recommend GermGuardian products and wouldn’t be without them. Keeping the air clean and germ free has insured my good health for years!”

Regularly $149.99, you can save $70 plus clip an extra 10% coupon to bring the price down to $71.99.

Car accidents are no fun. Sometimes it’s almost impossible to find the person responsible, and you just end up stuck with a serious fender bender. Your best course of action would be to have a dashboard camera that can see everything that happens to your vehicle, and it just so happens that VAVA has a great option on sale.

The VAVA Dashboard Camera is currently on sale for $99.99 on Amazon, but we have an exclusive code that can drop that price down even further — to $69.99. That’s a total savings of $50 when compared to the full price of $119.99.

Easily installed right above your car’s dashboard, the VAVA cam can swivel 360 degrees and captures all footage in 1080p at 60fps. Record in any direction and ensure that if there happens to be an accident, there should be a license plate in clear view. 

The accompanying mobile app gets a real-time transmission from the camera and also comes equipped with an advanced night-vision mode so you’ll be able to stay safer at any time of the day. Other features include a quick snapshot button that sits on your steering wheel for unexpected moments, GPS support, and a sensor that automatically starts recording during any jolts of the vehicle (hard braking, contact, etc.). The VAVA’s compact design keeps the device discreet in case anyone decides to come poking around and makes it a well-hidden witness to everything going on around your wheels. 

Always have eyes on your car — even when you’re nowhere near it. Pick up a VAVA Dashboard Camera on sale for just $69.99 (marked down from $119.99) with the code NX6J79JX.

There’s no longer any valid reason to have boring incandescent light bulbs installed in your home. It’s not just that they’re wildly inefficient, but they always stay at the same bland color. You need to do both yourself and your living room a favor and upgrade to the latest line of Philips Hue Smart Bulbs, which offer technology that would make Tony Stark proud. 

Give your home a smart upgrade and save some energy with $14 off Philips Hue Smart Bulbs at Amazon for a limited time. At 28% off for $35.98, this is so far the lowest featured price they’ve been at Amazon for the BR30 model. This is the flood light model to light a larger area, but you can also get the Philips Hue A19 model for a comparable price of $35.53 to outfit most lamps and smaller overhead lights. 

Once you make the jump to smart bulbs with the Philips Hue, you’ll look at your previous life as your own personal dark ages. As the name suggests, you can choose from 16 million colors to provide the perfect mood and atmosphere for every room and occasion. All it takes to switch different colors is to use the Hue mobile app or to pair the bulbs with your Alexa or other voice assistant. This does require you to connect your bulbs through a Philips Hue Smart Hub, but if you already don’t have one you can save $16.49 on a new Hub at Amazon to complete your purchase. Other than that, it’s an easy installation that only requires you to screw in the bulbs and pair them with the Hub — no advanced degree in electrical engineering required. 

The Philips Hue Smart Bulbs are also compatible with other home devices such as Nest, dimmer switches, and motion sensors. It’s about the easiest way to create a home of the future your grandparents only dreamed about, minus the jetpacks. 

Apple Watch deal alert: Save $80 on Series 3 models on Amazon

Although the Apple Watch Series 4 is the company’s latest in wearable devices, the Series 3 is still the greatest with people looking for a bargain. The Apple Watch Series 3 is the previous generation, but it’s still top-notch — especially since the 38mm and 42mm models are now on sale for $80 off their list prices on Amazon.

SEE ALSO: Which fitness tracker should you get?

The Apple Watch Series 3 usually goes for $279, but the 38mm GPS model is priced at just $199. It features a GPS tracker, optical heart sensor, and digital crown made from premium aluminum. This model syncs directly to your iPhone for connectivity on-the-go, while it also features an accelerometer and a gyroscope for tracking workouts and your running routine with up to 18 hours of battery life. In addition, the Apple Watch Series 3 is swim-proof, so feel free to wear it when you’re doing laps at your local pool. 

The smartwatch runs the latest watchOS 5, so even if the Series 3 38mm is a generation behind, its operating system and functionality are not. If you’re looking for an Apple Watch with its own mobile data service, the Series 3 38mm with cellular and GPS built-in is on sale for $299 on Amazon too.

The Apple Watch Series 3 42mm GPS model is also on sale for $229, or $80 off its retail price of $309 on Amazon.

While the 42mm model has nearly the same internals and features as its 38mm counterpart, there are some differences that might make you want to opt for the bigger model. Both models have built-in GPS, an optical heart sensor, accelerometer, and gyroscope, and a digital crown. However, the 42mm version has a larger display size and a bigger battery with more than 18 hours of battery life.

This model also runs watchOS 5 and connects to your iPhone via WiFi and Bluetooth. But it really comes down to wrist size. If you have a larger wrist, it’s recommended you go with this model instead of the 38mm version. 

In addition, if you want an Apple Watch with its own cellular system, the Series 3 42mm with mobile data and GPS is on sale for $329 — which is also $80 off its list price. This model doesn’t require an iPhone for data, but you do need to sign up for a separate monthly mobile plan from just about any U.S. carrier, including Verizon, T-Mobile, AT&T, and Sprint.

All of these Apple Watch Series 3 models are a great value, so you (and your wallet) won’t be disappointed with any version you pick up.
