Sticking with the winter months can mean more time to play some new games while staying indoors. For Switch owners who want to play with friends remotely and access classic games, a Nintendo Switch Online membership is well worth the price. Now, Amazon has a deal on a bundle that includes a one-year Switch Online family plan and a 128GB SanDisk microSD card for $35. Since both the membership and the card usually cost $35, you basically get additional storage space for free.
Buy Switch Online Family Plan from Amazon – $35
In its early days, the main selling point of a membership was online play, but Nintendo has added more perks to it over the years. It now includes online backups of your gameplay data, access to the Switch Online mobile app that lets you voice chat with friends while you play together, and access to a library of over 70 NES and SNES titles to play at any time. This particular bundle is best for those with large families, perhaps more than a Switch at home, where up to eight users can take advantage of membership benefits.
One of the things we usually recommend to new Switch owners to buy is a microSD card since it’s easy to fill the built-in 64GB console with games. The licensed SanDisk 128GB model included in this package is a powerful model, with read speeds of up to 100MB/s and write speeds of up to 90MB/s. Even if you don’t think you’ll need the extra space, you’ll likely collect more titles, save files, and screenshots over time.
