Nintendo Switch Pro Controller on sale: Save $20 at Amazon

Deal pricing and availability subject to change after time of publication.

SAVE $20: Amazon’s Cyber Monday deal on the bestselling Nintendo Switch Pro Controller is still available — grab it on sale for just $49.99 (normally $69.99) as of Nov. 30. At 29% off, that’s its highest discount to date.

Not a fan of the Nintendo Switch’s Joy-Cons? We can’t blame you, honestly: While they pack quite a bit of power for palm-sized controllers, they’ve struggled with driftiness from the get-go — an issue that can make or break your chances of dominating a Mario Kart match or Mario Party mini-game. (Similarly, they’re notoriously awkward in horizontal mode and will probably make your hands cramp up after a few hours of use.)

Some good news: Nintendo will repair your drifty Joy-Cons for free. Some better news: Amazon still has the bestselling Nintendo Switch Pro Controller on sale at its Cyber Monday price of $49.99, which is $20 (29%) off its $69.99 MSRP. That beats its Black Friday deal by a few bucks, tops its Prime Day offer by $10, puts it at its lowest price ever since its 2017 release, and makes it $30 cheaper than a new pair of Joy-Cons (!).

Elsewhere ’round the web, the Pro Controller’s marked down to $52.54 at Walmart but still full price at Best Buy and the Nintendo Store; meanwhile, Target‘s supply was completely sold out at the time of writing. Sad!

Beloved by Amazon customers, Redditors, and tech experts alike, the Pro Controller’s design should look and feel familiar to anyone who’s used a wireless gamepad before, but motion controls and HD rumble take things up a notch. Built-in support for Nintendo’s amiibo figurines is another draw — those unlock additional content in certain games, including exclusive characters, outfits, and power-ups; same goes for its 40-hour battery life.

No word on how long Amazon’s $49.99 pricing will last, so grab one on sale while you still can.
