Traditional wisdom tells us that waiting for the Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals is absolutely the best way to get the console cheap. And yes, you do see significant savings on Switch during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. But that doesn't mean you should stop looking for deals in the weeks before (and after). In fact, if you just want to save money on the console and beat the rush around the sales, you can actually pick up a cheap Switch deal right now. We've seen several retailers offering Switch consoles cheap just today, so we've decided to round the best offers up in one place. Might be something here you like...

As a note of caution, you need to make sure that the cheap Switch deal you're picking up is worth having. Nintendo recently released a new model of the console, with improved battery life, and this is the one you want. While the older models still work just fine, you need to know what you're paying for. You might also find yourself a deal on the Nintendo Switch Lite, but as this console really is brand new, that seems unlikely. What is very possible, however, is actually getting a Switch for FREE as you'll see below. And you'll often find these bundles include some of the best Nintendo Switch games too.
