Looking for the best Nintendo Switch deals? Outside of retail holidays like Black Friday and Prime Day, there haven’t been a ton of great discounts on the Nintendo Switch or the Switch Lite, partially due to their popularity and partially due to the fact that, well, they’re made by Nintendo.
Since the original model was released in 2017, we’ve been optimistic about the future of the Nintendo Switch. It set a new standard for game systems. Its newer, younger sibling, the Nintendo Switch Lite, followed suit, and while some features have changed, we still like it a lot. The New Nintendo Switch, released in 2019, is almost exactly the same as its namesake, apart from having a better battery life. These days, if you’re buying a Switch, the New Nintendo Switch is the model to look for.
If you don’t own one yet, we’ve got your back. Below are all of the best Nintendo Switch deals and bundles we could find. We’ve also added some of the Best Switch Games you should consider and 25 essential accessories you’ll need.
Updated for May 2020: We’ve removed old deals, revised prices, added new games to our recommendations, and mentioned stock shortage due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
Nintendo Switch Deals
For reference, the Switch is normally $299, and most top-tier games cost $60 whether you buy a physical cartridge or a digital copy. You can choose between an all-gray version or one with blue and red Joy-Con controllers (not to mention limited edition models with fun designs:). Since a part of the appeal of Switch is the ability to slide the Joy-Cons off and use them as two separate wireless controllers, the colors do make it a bit easier to figure out which side they go back into. Note that over the past year, some users have been experiencing issues with Joy-Con controllers “drifting”, but should you encounter that, Nintendo will remedy the issue.
