Nintendo Switch (Neon): $299.99 at Amazon
While not necessarily a deal this is one of the cheaper rates for the standard Nintendo Switch at under $300. It has been cheaper in the past, but it's still very much in stock and available in the US.

Nintendo Switch OLED Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Edition: £319.99 at My Nintendo Store
The official Nintendo Store still has the Nintendo Switch OLED Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Edition available to buy following its release on November 4.

Nintendo Switch | Nintendo Switch Sports: £279 at Currys
While this bundle used to cost £300, and was discounted down to this rate in the past, this price is now the standard rate which gets you the awesome Nintendo Switch Sports for only £20 more than the cost of the console, saving you around £20 in the process.

Nintendo Switch bundles: Buying advice
Nintendo Switch bundles: how to spot a good deal
Just because Nintendo Switch bundles are cheap might not mean they are good deals. Many retailers often include cheaper games with their Nintendo Switch bundles and still charge standard price. Games readily available for $20 - $30 can sneak their way into the premium-priced deals, lowering the overall value of the offering.
In this case, it's worth picking up a Nintendo Switch bundle with a full $60 game and grabbing the cheaper title separately if you're desperate to play it. For this reason, it's always worth double-checking the going price of the bundled game you're picking up against the overall cost to make sure you're getting a good deal. Nintendo Switch sales outside of busy shopping periods (Black Friday or the holidays) are more likely to try this tactic.
The best games in a Nintendo Switch bundle
As mentioned above, first-party releases are the games you'll want to look for to get the best Nintendo Switch bundle deals. These games have been developed and produced by Nintendo itself, so that means games such as The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Metroid Dread, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
As these titles do not usually fall much below their usual price (even years after launch), your best option to get them for cheap is as part of a Nintendo Switch bundle. We've seen games effectively receive discounts of up to 50% when bought as part of a bundle.
Where can I get the best Nintendo Switch deals?
Outside of special sales events, most of the big retailers in the US, the UK, and Australia will run discounts intermittently throughout the year. For the best and biggest savings, you're always better off waiting for the likes of Amazon Prime Day and Black Friday which take place in the summer and winter respectively.
Nintendo Switch Lite
The Nintendo Switch Lite was released at just $199.99/£199.99 nearly four years ago. 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 color options. You can pick one up now in turquoise, gray, yellow, or coral pink, as well as a special Pokemon Zacian & Zamazenta Edition. We have a larger hub dedicated to all the best Nintendo Switch Lite bundles if you want to check it out in more detail.
Nintendo Switch game deals
Looking for something to play? Some of the latest Nintendo Switch bundles might not offer the game you want to get into first. If not, use this price comparison chart below to find the cheapest Switch titles around, or head to our larger guide to find even more cheap Nintendo Switch games. Remember, 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.
If you're looking for more multiplayer options, you might want to check out the latest Joy-Con deals. These controllers come in $10 more expensive than the Pro Controller (more on that below), but you do get two separate controllers to expand your options. Nintendo Switch deals rarely include these controllers in their bundles as well, so it's not worth holding out for a mega-bundle.
Or maybe you just fancy some different colors for your own use - the Neon Red / Blue Joy-Con pack offers opposing colors to the ones the console ships with, for example (left red and right blue). Check out the latest prices below, or shop the latest cheap Joy-Con deals going on right now.
Nintendo Switch Pro Controller deals
You won't actually need a Nintendo Switch Pro controller to play any games, but it can help to deliver a more conventional console gaming experience. The Nintendo Switch Pro controller is a more traditional-style pad and was launched alongside the Nintendo Switch.
It retails for $69.99/£64.99. Nintendo Switch bundles have offered the Pro Controller in the past, but these are rare - and often higher value bundles setting you back a bit more cash - so we wouldn't recommend waiting for them. Check out more Nintendo Switch Pro Controller deals in our dedicated guide.
Do I need to buy more Nintendo Switch controllers for multiplayer?
Possibly not! Remember how the Joy-Con controller splits in two? Turn them sideways and you get 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 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-Con 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!
Nintendo Switch MicroSD card deals
With only 32GB of internal storage on the base model and 64GB for the OLED variant, 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, MicroSDHC (up to 32GB) or MicroSDXC (up to a huge 2TB soon). Nintendo also has its 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.
