Passing the time while in self-quarantine is easier said than done, and some experts think that we’re still between 4 and 6 weeks away from the peak of the novel coronavirus outbreak in the United States. That means if you’re responsible and you want to do your part to stop or even slow the spread of COVID-19, you’re going to be spending a whole lot of time indoors in the coming weeks and months.

If you go to school or you have a job where you’re able to work from home, you at least have that to occupy the bulk of your time during the days. After that, however, you’ll have to get creative. Amazon is running a bunch of deals this week that can definitely come in handy. For example, you can save $30 on a Kindle or $35 on a waterproof Kindle Paperwhite, and Prime members have three different Fire tablet deals they can take advantage of. The Fire 7 Tablet is on sale for just $39.99 right now, the Fire HD 8 Tablet is down to $49.99 from $80, and the flagship Fire HD 10 Tablet that normally sells for $150 is on sale for $99.99 for a limited time.

If you have a Nintendo Switch, there are also a slew of great deals that you can check out right now on some of the most popular Switch games currently available. From recent releases to older classics that you might’ve missed when they first came out, there’s definitely something for everyone. In fact, a dozen different popular Nintendo Switch games are discounted right now, and they’re all still shipping despite Amazon’s recent shift away from products that are deemed nonessential. Apparently, Amazon knows as well as we do that it’s essential to stay entertained while we’re on lockdown.

Several fan favorites are on sale right now like the recently-released title Metro Redux and classics like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Minecraft, Luigi’s Mansion 3, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Mortal Kombat 11 gets one of the deepest discounts from $60 to just $26.99, and prices start at just $19.99 for LEGO Harry Potter: Collection, Lego Jurassic World, and GS2 Games Everspace Stellar. Check out all of the discounted Nintendo Switch games down below.
