It’s another quiet week when it comes to Nintendo Switch deals, but the good news is that stock appears to be more stable in the US and UK for the first time since late last year. Looking back today, we find that both the standard Switch and the new OLED Switch are available for purchase at a number of retailers – just don’t expect to find a savings. Either way, we’ve rounded up all of today’s best prices for the standard console and the new Nintendo Switch OLED – when available.
After suffering from the Black Friday effect that saw stock completely eliminated in the US, you can now find the standard Nintendo Switch console in a number of stores. You can get the Neon version for $299.99 on Amazon or choose between the two colors in Best Buy for $299.99. In another place, Nintendo Switch OLED stock it has been very difficult in the last few weeks, but the The white version is in stock at Best Buy for $349.99.
In the meantime, there are plenty of Nintendo Switch bundles to choose from in the UK. The clear winner is this Nintendo Switch and Ring Fit Adventure Bundle for £249.99 at Simply Games. This is the lowest price ever and effectively gives you a copy of the home exercise game for free when it usually costs £65. Other cheaper options are available at Game, as they feature some of the less premium games, like Pikmin 3 Deluxe or Paper Mario: The Origami King. When it comes to the Nintendo Switch OLED, there’s a lot of stock available at amazon, Very and the My Nintendo Store this week.
Remember, to play online multiplayer and get other benefits like free games, you’re going to want to grab a Nintendo Switch Online Subscription Agreement also.
We were hoping that some better Nintendo Switch deals could emerge later in the year as stocks return to normal levels – especially in the US. If we find new offers they will find their way to this page, so check back soon.
The latest Nintendo Switch cheap deals
The comparison chart below will bring you the best Nintendo Switch deals on console alone. As the stock fluctuates, however, we’ve seen prices rise and fall with demand. Don’t pay more than the US MSRP of $299 and the UK MSRP of £259, because as terrible as the stock may seem, those costs end up dropping again with a new wave of stock.
We also took a look at the best prices for the Nintendo Switch OLED today. Remember, the RRP for this is $349.99 in the US and £309.99 in the UK. It’s still early days, so there probably won’t be big discounts on this new console version just yet.

Nintendo Switch Bundles: How to spot a good deal
Just because Nintendo Switch bundles are cheap may not make them a good deal. Many retailers often include cheaper games with their Nintendo Switch bundles and still charge the standard price. Games readily available for $20 to $30 can creep into premium price offerings, lowering the overall value of the offer.
In that case, it’s worth grabbing a Nintendo Switch bundle with a full $60 game and picking up the cheaper title separately if you’re desperate to play it. For this reason, it’s always worth checking the current price of the bundled game you’re buying against the overall cost to make sure you’re getting a good deal. Nintendo Switch sales outside of busy shopping periods (Black Friday or holidays) are more likely to try this tactic.
The Best Games to Get in a Nintendo Switch Bundle
As mentioned above, first-time releases are the games you want to look for to get the best Nintendo Switch bundle deals. These are games that were developed and produced by Nintendo itself, like Mario Kart, Mario Party, The Legend of Zelda, Metroid and so on.
Since these titles usually don’t go much below their regular price (even years after release), your best bet to get them for a low price is as part of a Nintendo Switch bundle. We’ve seen games effectively receive discounts of up to 50% when purchased as part of a bundle.
When to buy Nintendo Switch offers
The best Nintendo Switch deals are usually found during the holiday season. You’ll find that the biggest games of the year tend to release between October and December, which gives bundles a higher value when these titles are included at a discount. However, a new Nintendo Switch bundle usually appears alongside any major first-party release. We’ll be looking for any with Metroid Dread when it launches later this year to help you save some money on your Switch.
Nintendo Switch Lite
The Nintendo Switch Lite launched for just $199.99 / £199.99 in 2019. That’s $100 / £80 less than the original Switch console. If you also want to play games on TV then you should opt for the standard Nintendo Switch as Lite can only be played in handheld mode.
The Nintendo Switch Lite comes in several color options. You can choose one now in turquoise, grey, yellow, or coral pink, as well as a special Zacian & Zamazenta Edition Pokémon. We are gathering all best Nintendo Switch Lite bundles if you want to check it out in more detail.
Cheap Games for Nintendo Switch
Looking for something to play? Some of the latest Nintendo Switch deals and bundles may not be offering the game you want to jump into first. Otherwise, use this price comparison chart below to find the cheapest Switch titles.
Extra Joy-Con Offers
If you’re looking for more multiplayer options, check out the latest Joy-Con deals. These controllers are $10 more expensive than the Pro Controller (more on that below), but you get two separate controllers to expand your options. Nintendo Switch deals rarely include these controllers in their bundles, so it’s not worth waiting for a mega-bundle.
Or maybe you just like a few different colors for your own use – the Neon Red/Blue Joy-Con package offers opposite colors to what the console comes with, for example (red left and blue right). Check out the latest prices below, or buy the best cheap Joy-Con sales going right now.
Nintendo Switch Pro controller deals
you won’t really need a Nintendo Switch Pro controller to play any game, so don’t feel pressured to buy one. The Nintendo Switch Pro controller is a more traditional style pad and released alongside the Nintendo Switch. Prices aren’t cheap though, starting at around $69.99 / £64.99. Nintendo Switch bundles have offered the Pro Controller in the past, but they’re rare – and usually higher value bundles cost a little more money – so we don’t recommend waiting for them. check out more Nintendo Switch Pro Controller deals in our dedicated guide.
Possibly not! Remember how the Joy-Con controller splits in two? Flip them sideways and you have two basic controllers, each with its own analog stick and face buttons – the d-pad acts as face functions on the left controller. We’ve seen 2K’s NBA series, Snipper Clips, FIFA 19, and Mario Kart being used in this way for local multiplayer in dock and tablet modes. So, you get multiplayer functionality right away, with no additional purchase required.
However, if you want to play four-player games, you will need to invest in an extra pair of Joy-Con controllers or some Pro controllers. We would buy the Joy-Cons as a pair (see our comparison chart above) as it will save you quite a bit of money by purchasing them separately. Even better, if your friends have a Switch, ask them to bring their controllers to the party!
Nintendo Switch bundles rarely offer extra controllers for the standard price as they are particularly expensive gamepads. However, retailers sometimes include a Pro Controller in their Nintendo Switch sales with a slightly higher price tag.
Nintendo Switch MicroSD Card Deals
With only 32GB of internal storage, you’ll want to buy a cheap memory card or two for your new Nintendo Switch for digital purchases or the inevitable game fix patches. Don’t worry, they’re surprisingly cheap, with up to 64GB coming in at under £20/$25.
Which memory cards does Nintendo Switch need? These will be Micro SD cards also known as, depending on the size, as MicroSDHC (up to 32GB) or MicroSDXC (up to 2TB soon). Nintendo also has its own branded cards, but you’ll pay more just for a label. So for now, let’s take a look at this range of cheap cards that are compatible with the Nintendo Switch MicroSDXC.
