Nintendo Offers A Free 128GB MicroSD Card For New Switch Purchases

An interesting little offer from Nintendo happening only today, as people who buy a Nintendo Switch on Cyber Monday will get a free gift. The company is offering to give people who purchase the standard Switch console a free 128GB microSD card from SanDisk. This one being red and having some game branding on the side. As you may or may not be aware, the Switch only had 32GB of memory, and 7GB of that is usually taken up by the OS. So not a lot of room for a game library. But there is a microSD slot on the back, which gives way to enhance it the way you would another console by adding memory to a USB port. You can only get this deal through specific retailers, which the company has given a list of them here.
