We're always on the lookout for cheap Switch eShop deals, but despite some pretty hefty sales over the holidays we don't think we've found a bargain quite as good as the one snapped up by some lucky Target customers online earlier today. US retailer Target temporarily had download codes for Yoshi's Crafted World on sale with a whopping discount that brought the Switch game down to a paltry $1. One single dollar.
As reported by Newsweek, the retailer caught wind that something was amiss after the deal had been live for around an hour (starting at approximately 4am ET) and rectified the pricing error, although not before reddit users snapped up some codes for the bargain basement price. They apparently also received 300 gold points for the purchase, meaning the lucky few also netted $3 of eShop credit.
Other games such as What Remains of Edith Finch were also briefly listed for $1. Speaking to Newsweek, a Target spokesperson had the following to say:
"Due to an unexpected error, the item is incorrectly priced at this time. A small number of items on the site may be mispriced, described inaccurately, or unavailable. Target reserves the right to change or update information and to correct errors, inaccuracies or omissions at any time without prior notice."
With some people bagging multiple codes, they're springing up on eBay and elsewhere for sale, although we'd recommend exercising caution if you're considering getting your hands on a code.
We enjoyed Yoshi's Crafted World, saying it "has colour and charm to spare, even if its inventiveness is largely limited to its looks" in our review. For a mere dollar, it would be an essential addition to your Switch library - why is it that we're always just too late to grab these deals?
