On its own, the MSRP/RRP Nintendo Switch price is $299 in the USA and £279 in the UK.

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.

Nintendo Switch bundles: how to spot a good deal

Just because a Nintendo Switch bundle is cheap doesn't make it a good deal. 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 deal 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.

Nintendo Switch Lite

The Nintendo Switch Lite was released at just $199.99/£199.99 in 2019. 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, yellow or coral pink, as well as a special Pokemon Zacian & Zamazenta Edition. 

If you want to learn more about the console and see prices for every individual color and bundle, check out our Nintendo Switch Lite prices and deals guide.

How to buy the right Nintendo Switch

It's easy to tell the difference between the Nintendo Switch and the Nintendo Switch Lite. The former offers a more expensive price tag as well as a larger box which features art with a red and blue or gray set of Joy-Con. However, if you're shopping for the main console, there is an older version you should be wary of.

The updated version of the original Nintendo Switch is now the only one you'll find on the shelves of the vast majority of retailers. The improved battery is the only change, with prices staying the same over the original release. Make sure you're picking up this model by checking for the HAC-001(-01) model number (the old version is HAC-001) and checking that the box is all red rather than featuring an image of a hand picking up the console. All of the Nintendo Switch deals featured on this page are offering the latest model as well.

Extra Joy-Con deals

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 best cheap Joy-Con sales going right now.

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. 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 extra controllers for multiplayer on Nintendo Switch?

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!

Nintendo Switch bundles rarely offer extra controllers at the standard price, as these are particularly pricey gamepads. However, retailers sometimes include a Pro Controller in their Nintendo Switch sales with a slightly higher price tag. 

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.

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.
