The Defense Department's Defense Video and Image Distribution Service (DVIDS) issued an apology on September 21 after deleting a Twitter post that suggested individuals who participated in the "Storm Area 51" event and entered Air Force property would be blown up by bombs.

For the uninitiated, Nintendo Switch Online is a subscription service that normally costs $20 a year and is required to play online multiplayer in most Switch games. (Free-to-play titles like Fortnite are exempt, but it’s needed for games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate or the upcoming Overwatch port.) We noted this Amazon deal when it arrived in March, but with Nintendo adding a slate of classic Super Nintendo games to the service (albeit at the expense of monthly releases), it remains a good bargain if you already have a Prime membership.

Redeeming the offer isn’t entirely straightforward, so as a reminder, here’s what you have to do to get the full year. Again, all of this presumes you pay for Prime to begin with:
