Christmas countdown: Best deals on Nintendo Switch, Fire TV Stick, Xbox One, iPad and more!

Less than a week to go! But you still have time to score some amazing discounts, like an Amazon Echo Dot for $20 and a UE Boom 2 waterproof speaker for $64.


Walmart, among other stores, is counting down the days until the holidays, with new sale items every day.


OK, shoppers, it's officially one week till Christmas -- meaning you've got just six days to get your holiday shopping done. Have no fear: I've rounded up some of the best deals from stores' holiday sales. And if procrastination is your enemy, no worries: I've also collected six last-minute gifts you can print or email.

But for now there's still time to shop. We're nearing the end of Best Buy's 20 Days of Doorbusters and Walmart's 20 Days of Deals, and there still some great deals from Dell, Target, Amazon and other stores.

Here are the latest and greatest picks, followed by store-specific roundups.

UE Boom 2 Limited Edition wireless speaker: $64 (save $136)

Sarah Tew/CNET

The UE Boom 2 is an oldie but goodie. (It's shown here in blue, but it's the black Limited Edition that's on sale.) It's waterproof and has a 15-hour battery, 360-degree sound and other great features. It's available today only at this price. For the past few weeks it's been selling at around $80, and was indeed as high as $200 prior to that.

Amazon Echo Dot (second generation): $20 (save $20)

Taylor Martin/CNET

Yep, last year's Dot is still one of this year's best deals -- as it has been since before Black Friday. This may be your last chance to scoop one up at this price, because in the new year Amazon will undoubtedly be focusing its attention on the third-gen model.

Xbox One S Battlefield V console with Gears of War 4: $200 (save $100)

Although Walmart still offers a variety of Xbox One S bundles (see below), Dell raised the ante today with this one, which includes not only the venerated Battlefield V, but also a digital copy of Gears of Wars 4.

Nintendo Switch with Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle: $299 (save $30)


Walmart's other Switch bundle (see below) nets you the console, a Labo kit and a wired controller. If you'd rather start your Switch adventure with a game, here's a popular one included at no extra charge. It's currently sold out, but the price hasn't changed, so you may want to sign up for an in-stock alert. Who knows, you might get lucky!

Save up to 50 percent at GameStop


With nearly 500 titles on sale, here's your chance to score some seriously good game deals. For example, you can bag Battlefield V for Xbox One for $30 (it's also available for PS4 at that price), Lego The Incredibles for Nintendo Switch for $20 (that's more than 50 percent off, actually) and Madden NFL 19 for Xbox One for $30. (Again: same for PS4 version.)

Shipping is free on orders over $35, though for some titles you may be able to choose in-store pickup and dodge the shipping fee.

Super Mario Odyssey for Nintendo Switch: $45 (save $26)


A game Jeff Bakalar called "a damn masterpiece" (see review), Super Mario Odyssey is $45 at Walmart but even less at MassGenie. Just make sure to click the Power Deal button. Deal ends today!

Sceptre 32-inch HD LED TV: $90 (save $90)


Although it was $10 less yesterday, this is still a pretty amazing deal. Sceptre's 32-incher has a 4.5-star review average from nearly 3,000 buyers, proof that its 720p resolution is just fine for a screen of this size. You'll have to BYO "smarts" if you want apps like Netflix, but scroll down and you can scoop up an Amazon Fire TV Stick for just $25. Incredible deal.

Amazon Fire TV Stick: $25 (save $15)

Sarah Tew/CNET

It was $5 less on Black Friday, but $25 for Amazon's Alexa-enabled streaming stick is still a pretty fantastic deal. As of today, however, it's showing "in stock on Dec. 25," so obviously it won't be delivered in time for Christmas.

Amazon Fire HD 8 tablet: $50 (save $30)

Sarah Tew/CNET

After a long stretch selling for $60, the Fire HD 8 is now the same price as Amazon's entry-level tablet, the Fire 7. But the HD 8 offers a bigger, better screen and faster performance.

iPad 2018 with 9.7-inch screen is $250 at Target (Save $80)

Sarah Tew/CNET

Apple's non-Pro iPad does everything most people want it for: web browsing, Netflix-streaming and playing games from the App Store. Target has discounted the 32GB and 128GB versions of the tablet by $80, making them $250 and $350, respectively.

Google Pixel 3, 3 XL get their Black Friday prices back

Sarah Tew/CNET

The Google Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL are discounted by $100 and $150 respectively on Google's store, bringing both high-end phones back to their Black Friday weekend prices -- $699 for the 3 and $749 for the 3 XL. They will remain at these prices until Dec. 22. Not bad for "the best Android phone of 2018."

Best Buy's 20 Days of Doorbusters: Day 18

Best Buy continues to offer roughly half a dozen doorbusters, with two standouts today:

Insignia 5.5-liter digital air fryer: $50 (save $70)

Best Buy

Actually, this model normally sells for $80 (with occasional fluctuations in both directions), but $50 is indeed the lowest price to date -- and an extremely good deal for an air fryer of this capacity.

Sharp 58-inch 4K HDR Roku TV: $350 (save $200)


Although Honey begs to differ that Best Buy previously sold this TV for $550, there's no question that a 58-inch Roku is a pretty sweet deal at $350. TCL's Series 4 model is priced the same, but for a 55-inch screen.

Walmart's 20 Days of Deals: Day 18

Game time! Walmart is still offering a $10 e-gift card with the purchase of various popular party games, including Exploding Kittens, Cards Against Humanity and Unstable Unicorns.

Meanwhile, you can still grab a solid Nintendo Switch bundle and big discounts on Samsung UHD TVs and Xbox One bundles. The store is also now matching Target's $250 iPad deal.

Nintendo Switch, Labo and controller bundle: $340 (save $49)


It's getting tough to find any kind of Switch deal, so Walmart's is worth a look. In addition to the console itself, you get your choice of three Labo kits and an Ematic wired controller.

Samsung UHD TVs for up to $400 off

Walmart is still offering up to $400 off a variety of UHD televisions, ranging from $400 to $1,400 depending on the model. The highest-end TVs appear to be offered at an even larger $1,000 off, which can be helpful if you were looking for a curved TV or just a Samsung set with a 55-inch screen.

Xbox One S bundles as low as $219

Sarah Tew/CNET

The Xbox One S is enjoying a range of solid discounts, including Battlefield and NBA 2K19 bundles now at just $219. If you don't want those games, several other bundles are just $10 more with titles like Forza Horizon 4 and PUBG. You can also step up to the Xbox One X console with this $399 PUBG bundle, a $150 savings.
