There are some great deals ahead of Amazon Prime Day! Score the excellent The Lord of the Rings 4K Blu-ray box set for 33% off or a Nintendo Switch Online Membership and Memory Card Bundle for 50% off. Xbox Series X gamers can get a nice discount on Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which can potentially give you access to every Xbox exclusive game announced at E3. For a limited time you can also save on the Nintendo Game & Watch handheld and Breath of the Wild for the Switch.
The Lord of the Rings Extended & Theatrical 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray
This long-awaited Lord of the Rings 4K box set came out in December of 2020 at a hefty $99.99. It subsequently dropped to $89.99 in a relatively short amount of time and stayed at that price until this month. Last week, the price dropped once again to $70 and I thought that was a pretty solid deal. Today, though, it finally reaches that sweet spot of $59.99. This is probably an early Amazon Prime Day deal but you best jump on it now since the best Prime Day deals don’t last. This set includes 4K Ultra HD and digital versions of the LotR trilogy, including both theatrical and extended editions.
Nintendo Switch Online Family Membership and 128GB Memory Card
Amazon is offering a free official Nintendo Switch (SanDisk) 128Gb Micro SDXC Memory Card when you pick up a 12 month Nintendo Switch Online Family Membership. Nintendo Switch Online is required for online play in games like Super Mario Kart or Splatoon, downloading custom maps in Super Mario Maker 2, playing free retro SNES games, saving your game data to the cloud, and much more. The “Family” membership allows for up to 8 different account holders, not necessarily in the same household. The 128GB memory card will increase your storage capacity by quadruple the stock amount.
Save on 3 Months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate
The sheer amount of value you get with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is impressive. This membership gives you both Xbox Live Gold, Xbox Game Pass, and Xbox Game Pass for PC. Xbox Live Gold is required for online gaming. Xbox Game Pass gives you access to a huge library of games that is free as long as you maintain your membership. The list includes AAA games that you can play as early as launch day. These include MLB The Show 21, FIFA 21, The Medium, and every Bethesda game ever. If you’ve also got a great gaming PC, Xbox Game Pass for PC offers stellar games like Crusader Kings 3, Forza Horizon 4, Nier Automata, and more. If you watched the Xbox/Bethesda E3 2021 presentation, you’ll notice that the vast majority of upcoming Xbox exclusive titles will also be on Xbox Game Pass. Additional perks include exclusive discounts at the Microsoft Store and a free 30-day Disney+ trial.

Legend of Zelda: BotW was one of the first games released for the Nintendo Switch and still it is one of the best adventure games you’ll play on any of the modern day consoles. Starting today it has dropped to $39.99, a hefty 33% off it’s original price.
