If you’re looking for another dose of Nintendo’s handheld happiness then maybe you want to consider a cheap 3DS deal too. We have a dedicated page of Nintendo Switch prices for our Australian readers too.
Nintendo Switch Lite
The Nintendo Switch Lite was recently released at just $199.99/£199.99. That’s $100/£80 less than the original Switch console. If you want to play games on the TV as well, you should go for the standard Nintendo Switch instead as the Lite is only playable in handheld mode.
The Nintendo Switch Lite comes in multiple colour options. You can pick one up now in turquoise, gray and yellow. There will also be a special edition Zacian & Zamazenta Edition released on November 8 to celebrate the release of Pokémon Sword and Shield. It doesn’t come with the game, but doesn’t cost anything extra either. If you want to learn more about the console, check out our Nintendo Switch Lite prices and deals guide.
The latest cheap Nintendo Switch deals
Want to know where to buy a Nintendo Switch? Check out our comparison charts and the latest bundle highlights with extra games and accessories below for the best deals.

Nintendo Switch bundles (USA)
We’ve highlighted our picks of the best and cheapest Nintendo Switch bundles below. Just be aware that many game bundles at quieter times of the year don’t really offer much of a discount over buying the items separately. We’ll steer you clear of console bundles that actively charge you more than the regular combined MSRP (not cool, guys!).
New Nintendo Switch version | $299 at Walmart
Nintendo has just released an updated version of the Nintendo Switch with an improved battery which will last 4.5-9 hours (up from 2.5-6.5 hours) depending on what game you’re playing. It costs the same as the original model, so this is the one to go for. Note the difference in the box here compared with the one below, that’s the clearest indicator you’re getting the new version. This deal is also available on the gray version.
Nintendo Switch | carry case | $302.25 at Walmart
Getting a carry case for a couple of bucks more than the standard price of the console is a great idea. It will protect your Switch’s screen when it’s out of the dock. It also has extra pockets to store game cartridges too. This deal is available with both the neon and grey versions of the Switch.
Nintendo Switch | Mario Tennis Aces | 1-2-Switch | $359.96 at Walmart
This is great Nintendo Switch bundle for multiplayer as it comes with the new Super Mario Tennis. And seeing as the Joy-Con controllers come as a pair, you’re able to dive into the two-player action straight away. This Switch deal also comes with 1-2-Switch minigames collection to get used to your new console’s unique controls.
Nintendo Switch bundles (UK)
The UK scene for discounted Nintendo Switch deals is quite competitive thanks to the large number of retailers trying to get your business. We usually find a strong selection of bundles every week nowadays, even in those quieter times of year not particularly known for sales. So take a look below for discounts on packages with games, hardware and accessories.
Nintendo Switch | £30 eShop credit | £279 at AO.com
This might be the RRP of the console itself, but you are getting £30 of credit to spend on the Nintendo eStore. This can be used on downloadable games and extra content. £30 will get you a few indie titles, or smash a huge chunk of the price of a full-sized game. If you can spend a bit more, similar bundles below include a game and the free voucher still.View Deal
New Nintendo Switch version | £279 at Currys
This is the updated version of the Nintendo Switch with an improved battery that’ll last 4.5-9 hours (up from 2.5-6.5 hours) depending on what game you’re playing. Note the difference in the box here compared with the one above, that’s the clearest indicator you’re getting the new version.

As with any new console we imagine you’re wanting to know a bit more about the console before you put any money down. So in addition to finding the best Nintendo Switch bundle deals, we’re going to help bring in answers to the burning questions.
What are the Joy-Con controllers?
The Joy-Con controller is actually a pair of controllers that attach to the sides the the Nintendo Switch when not in use or when playing in tablet form away from the TV. When playing the Nintendo Switch on the TV, you can remove them and play with one in each hand. The left hand gets a controller with an analogue stick and d-pad, the right hand handles the one with a second analogue and the usual A, B, X and Y face buttons. Or you and a friend can use one each in multiplayer games with the d-pad doubling up as impromptu face buttons.
You get a pair with the console, but you might want to buy more to allow extra players to get involved in games like Mario Kart 8, FIFA 19 and many more. Or maybe you just fancy some different colors for your own use.
Extra Joy-Con deals
What’s the Joy-Con Grip controller?
The Joy-Con Grip is an additional accessory that joins the two Joy-Con controllers together, forming something something a bit more solid for you to hold thanks to the extended handles and plastic block between the two sides. The square dimension form-factor may remind older gamers of the Dreamcast controller, while everyone else will mainly be thinking how it resembles an odd-looking dog face. Nintendo is providing one in the box with the Nintendo Switch, so you won’t have to buy one separately. This won’t charge your controller though and doesn’t have a battery pack.
Nintendo Switch Pro controller deals
You won’t actually need a Nintendo Switch Pro controller to play any games, so don’t feel pressured in to buying one. The Nintendo Switch Pro controller is a more traditional-style pad and launched alongside the Nintendo Switch. Prices aren’t cheap though, starting around $69.99/£64.99. There’s no sign of a Nintendo Switch Premium Edition console with one included either.
Possibly not! Remember how the Joy-Con controller splits in two? Turn them sideways and you get two basic controllers, each with their own analogue 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 this way for local multiplayer in both docked and tablet modes. So you get multiplayer functionality straight out of the box with no additional purchase required.
However, if you want to play four-player games, then you’re going to need to invest in an extra pair of Joy-Con controllers or some Pro controllers. We’d buy the Joy-Cons as a pair (see our comparison chart above) as you’ll save a bit of cash over buying them separately. Better yet, if your friends own a Switch, ask them to bring their controllers to the party!
Super Mario Odyssey deals
This has been one of the best games on the Nintendo Switch so far and an absolute must for Mario and platforming fans. Like Zelda below though, this being a first-party Nintendo title, it’s taking forever to go down in price. It’s slowly happening though, so we’ve rounded up the cheapest Super Mario Odyssey prices for you below. If you’re not getting this game in a bundle, we’d strongly advise picking it up separately as soon as possible.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild deals
The reviews have heaped huge praise upon this eagerly awaited launch title, making it an essential purchase for any Nintendo Switch buyer. As with any new console, the prices of the big games can be more expensive than usual. We’ve shopped around for you though and have found the best prices for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on the Nintendo Switch. Take a look below.
Nintendo Switch Micro SD memory card deals
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.
