There is a pretty good deal running on my favorite gaming controller.
I use this with my Xbox, Nintendo Switch and MacBook Pro. It is more durable than the more expensive 'pro controllers' and works just as well.
If you've been waiting for a replacement this is a pretty good price.

The 8bitdo SN30 is a replica SNES controller that's both wireless and compatible with Windows, MacOS, Nintendo Switch and Android, all via USB-C or Bluetooth. In addition to the classic digital controls are two analog sticks, neatly designed into the otherwise accurate recreation of the original pad. But there's more!

The SN30 is $50 on Amazon and comes in US and EU/JP color schemes; note that it won't ship until December.
