Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch deals: FAQ

When will Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch deals start?

Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch deals are officially here! They kicked off on Monday November 28, so now's the time to dive in and take advantage of those savings. Many of these discounts are left-overs from Black Friday, but that doesn't make them any less worthy of consideration – they're still pretty great overall. 

Just don't wait for too long to hit checkout; we often see the reductions start to tail off toward the end of Cyber Monday itself.

What to expect from Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch deals 2022

Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch deals may look a little different to their Black Friday counterparts. If you're on the hunt for a console, we would absolutely recommend getting in earlier than the weekend. After all, while some bundles do last until the second event, the best ones are usually stripped from the shelves before Thanksgiving is even over. These are highly competitive offers, so if you're truly looking for the best value possible you'll need to get in ahead of time. 

We do expect some bundles to be leftover once the madness dies down. Larger packages including multiple games and accessories are often the last to leave the shelves. Just make sure that you're not over-paying for anything included in the bundle. This year, we also expect to see some more Nintendo Switch OLED bundles hitting those sale lines as well. The latest console has already seen some excellent price cuts over the course of the year, dropping as low as $330 / £289 (usually $349.99 / $309.99). While straight price cuts like this will likely be reserved for Friday, bundle between the prices of $349 - $369 / £299 - £329 may still be up for grabs. 

If you're looking to stock up on games and accessories there's some better news for you. We often see Friday's offers rolling through the weekend on these lower priced options. Cheaper or older games are a surefire bet - last year we saw $20 off the likes of Breath of the Wild, Paper Mario, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, all of which made it through to Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch deals. Newer games may be a little more stringent, but we would still expect similar savings on Pokemon Legends: Arceus and Kirby and the Forgotten Land to remain over the weekend. You may need to be a little quicker to pick up recently released titles like Splatoon 3 at a discount, though. 

Will Nintendo Switch bundles still be available on Cyber Monday?

Nintendo Switch bundles are among the first to go on the big day itself, which means we're not expecting stock to stick around for Cyber Monday. We would recommend jumping in as soon as you see these bundles, and they may well appear during Thanksgiving week. That said, we may see some retailers bringing bundle options back for the second round - but we certainly wouldn't rest on it. 

Should you wait for Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch deals?

Absolutely not. The Nintendo Switch is one of the most popular items around in November, and any discounts or bundles will be snatched off the shelves exceedingly quickly. In fact, last year we even saw certain games and accessories running back up to full price before Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch deals had the chance to kick off. While we are expecting plenty of offers to roll through the weekend, this is a sale for anyone who missed out the first time round, rather than a new wave of discounts.
