The Best Deals Ahead of Prime Day: Joy-Cons, AirPods, PS5 DualSense Edge, Quest 3, and More – IGN

Amazon Prime Day kicks off on July 16, but that’s not stopping merchants — Amazon included — from dishing out some excellent deals early. Walmart, for example, has put out its own sale event with some awesome discounts that we think will be better than any equivalent deal during the Amazon Prime Day Sale. We’ve picked out the ten best deals that you can get right now, today.

Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons + Super Mario Party for $69

Official Nintendo Switch Joy Cons aren’t discounted very often, but Walmart is bucking that trend. Right now they have the Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons Bundled with Super Mario Party for only $69. This bundle usually retails for $99, and the cost goes up even more if you were to purchase each item separately. This bundle includes a pair of exclusive Mario Red/Blue Nintendo Joy-Con controllers and the Super Mario Party game.

Apple AirPods Pro with USB Type-C for $169

Amazon has discounted the newest generation Apple AirPods Pro truly wireless noise cancelling earbuds with the universal USB Type-C connector to only $169, a savings of $80. This is the lowest price we’ve ever seen and beats out last year’s Black Friday deal. The AirPods Pro is our top pick for the best Airpods of 2024, and a no-brainer for any iPhone user.

PS5 DualSense Edge Controller for $174.99

Walmart is offering the professional grade PlayStation 5 DualSense Edge Controller for $174.99. That’s 13% off the $200 MSRP, which might not sound like too much, but the DualSense Edge is almost never discounted. This is a professional grade controller for the PS5 console, much like the Xbox Elite is for the Series X. Check out our IGN review.

Nintendo Switch Lite with Animal Crossing for $159
