Nintendo Switch deals are still difficult to find in the US, and while the UK was previously seeing some excellent bundle offers from Currys, that wave of discounts has now subsided. There are still savings out there, but we have seen stronger Nintendo Switch bundles in recent weeks.
We’re keeping a close eye on Nintendo Switch deals and stock over the course of the week, so as soon as we hear of a Joy-Con hitting a shelf we’ll be bringing you all the latest prices. We’ve been scouring the web for all the latest discounts, and you’ll find all our top picks of the best Nintendo Switch bundles just below.
If you’re looking to kit yourself out with everything you need straight from the off, you can save some serious cash with these offers, even if Nintendo Switch bundles themselves are running a little low right now. If you want to play online multiplayer and get other benefits like free games you’ll want to pick up a Nintendo Switch Online subscription deal as well.
So, if you’re not interested in waiting for a Nintendo Switch OLED pre-order, here’s all the best Nintendo Switch deals available right now. Keep your eyes peeled on upcoming Labor Day sales for more discounts on games and accessories as well.
The latest cheap Nintendo Switch deals
The comparison chart below will bring you the best Nintendo Switch deals on the console by itself. As stock fluctuates, however, we have seen prices rise and fall with demand. Don’t pay any more than the US MSRP of $299 and the UK RRP of £279, then, because as dire as stock may seem those costs do ultimately drop back down again with a new wave of inventory.
If you’re after a cheaper alternative, the Nintendo Switch Lite can be found for around $199 (£199). This handheld only console doesn’t dock, however, and doesn’t feature detachable Joy-Con. We’re also rounding up all the best Nintendo Switch Lite bundles as well and look for upcoming offers during the 4th of July sales event.
When to shop for Nintendo Switch sales
Nintendo Switch sales are usually most fruitful around the holiday period. You’ll find the year’s biggest games tend to release between October and December, which gives bundles a higher value when they include these titles at a discount price. However, any big first party release generally yields Nintendo Switch bundles as well so don’t take those Mario Party games for granted – they could save you cash on your Switch.
With only 32GB of internal storage, you’ll be wanting to pick up a cheap memory card or two for your new Nintendo Switch for any digital purchases or the inevitable game-fixing patches. Don’t fret though, they’re actually surprisingly cheap, with even 64GB ones coming in at under £20/$25.
What memory cards does the Nintendo Switch need? Those will be Micro SD cards also known as, depending on their size, as MicroSDHC (up to 32GB) or MicroSDXC (up to a huge 2TB soon). Nintendo also has their own branded cards, but you’ll be paying more just for a label. So for now, we’d take a look at this range of cheap MicroSDXC Nintendo Switch-friendly cards.
