Cheap Nintendo Switch deals are all over the place at the minute. Some good, some not so good. The one exception is Nintendo's hugely popular Mario Kart 8 bundle which has continued to drive sales for the console. Regardless, we've scoured the web for the best Switch deals and will be regularly updating this piece with as big or as little discounts that can help with any savings. 

We generally see Nintendo Switch deals come and go in waves in both the US and the UK, with bounties of stock available one week and shelves left barren the next. If you don't quite make it to the stock below, then, we're hoping more will be arriving in time for the New Year. 

While Nintendo Switch OLED stock looks to have taken a slight hit as a result of the Black Friday sales, the devices are returning to shelves at a faster rate than ever. Of course, we encountered tons of Black Friday Nintendo Switch deals so make sure to check them out for any remaining offers, alongside the best Black Friday gaming deals still available on the market today.

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 is $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 standard console experience as introduced back in 2017 (though most consoles on the shelves these days are the 2019 versions with a boosted battery life). 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 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: The latest version of the Switch features a 7-inch OLED screen, improved kickstand, and a slightly more streamlined build but aside from a few external updates, it offers all the same functionality as the standard Switch, complete with the same performance as well. 

Which Nintendo Switch bundles are available?

The only games we've seen with bundle options on the Nintendo Switch are Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Diablo 3, Splatoon 2, Fortnite, Fortnite Wildcat, Super Mario Odyssey, Mario Tennis Aces and 1-2 Switch, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Mario Red & Blue, Pokemon Zacian and Zamazenda (Switch Lite), Fortnite, Monster Hunter Rise, and Dragon Quest XI S. However, it's worth noting that many of these special editions are no longer easy to find.

While UK retailers pair games and consoles themselves, we see far fewer Nintendo Switch bundles available in the US. That's because they are generally only available as part of a limited edition console release, or as part of a major sales period. You can still find these Nintendo Switch bundles on the shelves, but it's well worth making sure you're getting a fair price for your gear. Price inflation is rife here, with some third party sellers going above $1,000 for rarer bundles. You should be paying $299-$319 at the most.

Are Nintendo Switch bundles worth it?

It's easy to fall into a Nintendo Switch bundle trap. Retailers can sometimes charge more for a game when bundled in with a console than they're actually selling it for themselves separately. That means it's well worth checking for current deals on the game you are choosing, as sometimes bundle prices are set based upon an MSRP that doesn't reflect a game's current price. 

However, if you spot a Nintendo Switch bundle with a game or accessory for the same price as the console by itself it's an automatic winner. 

You'll need something to keep that console safe - we're rounding up all the best Nintendo Switch cases available right now. We're also showing you how to find the right Nintendo Switch Online price for you, and rounding up all the latest Ring Fit Adventure deals as well.
