Cheap Nintendo Switch bundles are difficult to find these days, especially in the US. While the UK has seen a fair few deals hitting the shelves over the last few months, things stateside aren't looking so hopeful. However, stock has been stable for a long time now, and as we head towards annual holiday sales, we're likely to start seeing some more offers on the shelves.
There are still plenty of Nintendo Switch bundles available right now - you just need to know where to look. We're bringing you all the best deals right here, and keeping this page well stocked with all the latest sales.
The Nintendo Switch price is $299.99 / £259.99, with the UK recently dropping £20 off that RRP in September 2021. Right now, retailers are struggling to catch up with this new lower price, offering Nintendo Switch bundles that don't seem to save you any money on the game and console by themselves. While we are seeing far more bundles at £299.99 these days, you're still regularly paying the same amount for the game as it would be on the shelves for by itself.
All the Nintendo Switch bundles below offer good value for money, but you might come across some offers that don't look right if you're browsing on your own. In contrast to the woes surrounding Xbox Series X stock and PS5 stock, we're actually seeing Nintendo Switch deals slashing prices on consoles themselves more and more. We'd recommend you always check the current price of any games or accessories before you head to checkout as you may find it cheaper to pick up your items separately.

How to get the best Nintendo Switch bundles
The quality of Nintendo Switch bundles available is largely dependent on where you're shopping from. We see a far steadier supply of offers in the UK, often saving you plenty of cash on the latest games and accessories. However, in the US things are a little more difficult to find.
If you're browsing in the US, we recommend waiting for major holiday sales events. We don't see too many Nintendo Switch bundles popping up throughout the year, but during Black Friday Nintendo Switch deals, Labor Day, Memorial Day, and 4th of July sales you've got a much higher chance of scoring a bundle discount.
If you do find an offer, be sure to look around for the price of the game by itself. Retailers often use the MSRP of titles to claim their discount, whereas regular Nintendo Switch game sales can save you much more money, and it can sometimes be more cost effective to pick up your console and games separately.
The same advice goes for the UK. While we do see more Nintendo Switch deals across the pond, not every retailer uses the best prices for their games when creating bundles. Sometimes we've even seen shops charging more for games in a console bundle than individually on their own shelves. This has been exacerbated by the permanent Nintendo Switch price drop to £259.99.
What is the Nintendo Switch price?
To make sure you're getting a good deal, it's important to know the base prices of Switch consoles. In the US especially, we're used to seeing some merchants jack up the cost when rivals have sold out.
The normal Nintendo Switch price is $299 in the US while the UK RRP is now £259 (dropping by £20 in September 2021). As for the Switch Lite, the US MSRP is $199 and the UK's price is set at £199. The Nintendo Switch OLED price will be $349 in the US and £309 in the UK.
Don't be caught out, if there's a listing that goes above these prices, double-check that it's part of a bundle or includes something noteworthy - and always ensure it's from a trusted seller!
Which Nintendo Switch should you buy?
There are now (or soon to be) three models of Nintendo Switch to choose from. Each one does offer a different experience, though, so it's important to choose the right version for you.
- Nintendo Switch (standard): This is the 'full' console experience, and it's the one we'd recommend. Offering detachable controllers that can be shared between two people and a portable screen that allows you to play on TV or in handheld mode, it's perfect for multiplayer and single-player games.
- Nintendo Switch Lite: The new Nintendo Switch Lite is a handheld-only alternative, pitched as an entry-level console for kids or anyone playing on the go. While it's a lot cheaper, it can't be used on TV, doesn't have detachable controllers, and lacks some features like joypad rumble. However, it will still play all the same games.
- Nintendo Switch OLED model: It's only recently been announced by Ninty, but a new version of the Switch - featuring a 7-inch OLED screen - is set for release on 8 October 2021 and retails for $349.99/£309. Fancy new panel aside, it offers all the same functionality as the standard Switch. You can currently pre-order the Switch OLED model through some online retailers now.
