Unsure why they were are sale but wasn’t going to argue. Bought two for myself in Portland. Unsure if it’s a store by store thing or a chainwide thing

This is YMMV, I had to have my Freddy’s price match another that had the deal.

The Sunset Fred Meyer off hwy 26 has the deal, I got a price match from the Beaverton location. They had to call the other store to verify the sale. It’s a glitch at the store supposedly.

Was just at FM, don't think it was the same price at mine as I thought I looked at all the sale stickers.

Edit:
Was all the stickers stuff 50% off, cuz the one I went to was only 40% off (granted that too may be ymmv).

This thing has been going on sale so often. I wonder if Nintendo is trying to clear the channels for a new replacement Pro.

Couldn't even confirm or deny whether this was the price at my local store, as there was no sticker for the Pro controller, let alone the controller itself.

 

Don't want to call any other stores in my city... but at the same time I don't want to drive all over and come up with nothing.

Let's see if this can be price matched at a target /walmart/best buy.
For that price, I would buy it just to have an extra one. The batteries on these things are amazing!

Honestly, I think that's for all things NS, as all my local stores have accessories packed to the ceiling at most locations. When the system was hard to get, most places kept getting new orders for other items, and never really adjusted them. So most of these sales I think are just from to much inventory, and there really isn't anything happening NS wise, to move said inventory.

 

I haven't seen this much inventory for one system probably EVER! Which is great for the consumer, as there have been tons of great deals, and those will probably continue up to the holiday rush.

Agreed, also I think the switches incredibly voluminous console stats are a contributing factor
With so many customers, there’s an incentive for Nintendo to attract customers looking for software/digital content, and reflexively internal sales from Nintendo urge retailing competitors, especially with console/b&m type sales where you physically need the item (unlike software) in hand, to bolster software sales by getting customers in the door

THATS a healthy free market right there folks

It’s already out there. Bought one and it has the newer better dpad. I guess technically you could buy a new one and return your old one in the same box.
