Where to Find the Best Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield Deals
CDKeys has the lowest price we have found on Pokémon Sword and Shield, but keep in mind it is the digital copy of the game. If you don’t feel like you need to own a physical box, you can nab Sword or Shield for $52.79 each.
Keep in mind CDKeys is selling the European version of these titles, but luckily Nintendo does not region-lock its games. If you’re willing to create a new, European account for your Switch, you can take advantage of this deal and soon you’ll be running from all the Bewears!
While it’s not a huge discount, Walmart does have a pretty good price on both Pokémon Sword and Shield. You can order Sword for $56.90 or Shield for just a little bit more at $56.95. Why one costs more than the other is unclear, but perhaps some Walmart Executive has a preference in Legendaries…
Some users have also reported steeper price cuts on both games available in-store (both were seen at $49.99). This is likely part of Walmart’s recent initiative to discount games at launch, but participation varies from store to store, so make sure to call ahead before going shopping.
While Target isn’t offering any discounts on Pokémon Sword and Shield, the retailer does have an exclusive steelbook edition for fans who were planning on purchasing both games. This version of the game retails for $119.99 (the same price as buying both games individually) and includes copies of Sword and Shield as well as a store-exclusive steel package.
If you happen to be subscribed to Best Buy’s Gamer’s Club Unlocked program, you can get either version of the game for $47.99. If you are not a member, then Best Buy is selling it for $59.99 but you can still price match it with any major retailer at your convenience.
Even if you’re not an Amazon or GameStop member, you still have the option to order Pokémon Sword and Shield from these outlets.
Both games are live on GameStop for the standard $59.99, while Amazon is selling it for $58.99 after checkout.
It’s highly likely more retailers will join the fray in the coming weeks and months, once the initial release day hype has subsided. That could mean new and better deals, so be sure to check back to see if we’ve found any more solid offers.
