Labor Day is nearly upon us, marking the unofficial end of summer and beginning of a busy fall season. To celebrate the occasion, many stores are kicking off their Labor Day sales this week, and while Labor Day promotions often tend to revolve around things like mattress deals or meal delivery discounts, you can find some pretty sweet tech and gaming deals as well. Best Buy and GameStop just kicked off their Labor Day sales as well, offering discounts on bunch of PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch games. Most Labor Day sales run through Monday, so you have the long weekend to shop for some great deals.
Best Buy has five Nintendo Switch exclusives on sale for $20 off during its Labor Day Sale:
GameStop’s weekend Labor Day Sale features deals on a wide variety of new and pre-owned Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One games. We’ve rounded up the best deals below:
