The Nintendo Switch OLED launched back in October and was very difficult to find in stock for a good few months after release. Fortunately, the situation has improved considerably in 2022 and we're happy to report there's regular availability everywhere. All the same, we'll continue updating this page with where to buy the Nintendo Switch OLED in your region for the lowest price.

You might be better off trying for the original Nintendo Switch console instead if you want to find any Nintendo Switch bundles, though, as there are few - if any - discounts on the OLED version with included games. We've seen a few crop up recently, though, so there could be more during major sales events.

Where to buy Nintendo Switch OLED

At $349.99 / £309.99 / AU$539, the new Nintendo Switch OLED is $50 / £40 / AU$60 more expensive than the original model. For that premium, you get a larger OLED display, a new kickstand and a LAN supporting dock.

Deals are rare, but at least retailers in the US have Nintendo Switch OLED stock more regularly today. Sometimes it may not be available for a short period of time, but it often pops back up again after a few days. 

As for the UK, a number of stores including Amazon, Very, Currys, Game and the My Nintendo Store all regularly have stock available to order we've seen small discounts of up to £20 so far. Sometimes savings are better as part of rare bundles that include games such as Minecraft, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Animal Crossing New Horizons and Metroid Dread.

If it's sold out when you look now, come back in a little while as we check all the major retailers regularly and will update the list below with where to buy the Nintendo Switch OLED as soon as we hear any news.

Is Nintendo Switch OLED stock stable now?

For the most part, yes. It's been a good few months now and every time we've checked the major retailers at least one of them has the Nintendo Switch OLED available to buy. There have been a few instances where the console has sold out but this is now very rare and only lasts for a matter of days. 

The same can't be said for the PS5 restock and Xbox Series X restock situation. Those two consoles are still impossible to buy at a moment's notice. At least with the Xbox Series X it does stay in stock for a lot longer than usual, so we might see that match the current state of Nintendo Switch OLED availability in the coming months.

What is the Nintendo Switch OLED price?

The Nintendo Switch OLED is priced at $349.99 / £309.99 / AU$539. That's $50 more than the MSRP of the original Nintendo Switch model. Previously rumored 4K docked upscaling, Nvidia graphics, and an enhanced CPU were putting estimates at $399 / £379 - a tidy $100 / £100 price increase on the previous model that made a lot of sense. 

Without these additional features, a $50 / £50 / AU$60 increase is still good going for an OLED display (provided the battery has also been enhanced to keep up and extend over the original launch model), even if we were expecting to see a little more under the hood for our cash here. The original Nintendo Switch launched at $299 / £279 / AU$469 and just managed to undercut the PS4 and Xbox One's prices at the time.

If you don't want the brand new console you can also find many of the latest Nintendo Switch deals just below. You can also pick up some extras to go along with your new purchase including some cheap Joy-Con controllers or maybe a few cheap Nintendo Switch games?
