The weekend’s best deals: Kindle Unlimited, Nintendo Switch games, and more

It’s the weekend, which means it’s time for another Dealmaster. Our latest roundup of the best tech deals from around the web includes a hefty discount on Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited ebook subscription service. You’ll have to be a new user to take advantage, but if you’ve been thinking about giving the service a try, Amazon is currently offering a four-month membership for $5. The subscription normally costs $10 a month after a 30-day free trial, so this discount saves you $25 in total.

Not every ebook included in Kindle Unlimited’s library is a winner—a chunk of the selection consists of self-published works—and it’s always possible to use apps like Libby to borrow ebooks from your local library for free. Still, the collection is large enough to cover plenty of works that are worthwhile, including a variety of magazines and comic books, and a subscription lets you take out up to 20 titles at a time. You don’t need to own an actual Kindle device to access the library, either.

At its normal going rate, Kindle Unlimited’s value is more questionable, but this deal should make it less risky to see if the service is worth it for you. If you do subscribe, note that your subscription will be set to auto-renew at the normal $10-per-month rate, but you can cancel your membership immediately after signing up without losing access to the discounted trial period.

Besides that, our deals roundup also includes a number of discounts on recommended Nintendo Switch games. The fast-paced FPS Doom Eternal is available for a new low of $15, for instance, while the breezy Kirby and the Forgotten Land, which launched in March, is down to a new low of $52. A number of co-op games we like are also on sale, including the beat-em-up Streets of Rage 4, the easygoing classic game collection Clubhouse Games, the moving management sim Spiritfarer, and the kid-friendly LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, among others. You can get better-running versions of a few of these games on other platforms, but if you’d prefer to play them on a handheld, each of the Switch ports below are at or near the lowest prices we’ve tracked.

Elsewhere, we’ve got lower-than-usual prices on Google’s new Pixel 6a, Apple’s TV 4K streaming box, the Nintendo Switch Lite, Fitbit’s Inspire 2 activity tracker, Bose’s QuietComfort 45 noise-canceling headphones, Tile trackers, a range of AMD processors, and more. You can see our full curated list of deals below.
