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!).
Nintendo Switch | $30 Nintendo eShop voucher | $299 at Walmart
With the Nintendo Switch usually costing $299 on its own, you're essentially saving $30 with this bundle. That's because it comes with $30 of credit for you to spend on games on Nintendo's eShop. Given the general lack of bundles with other games at the moment, this is our favorite Nintendo Switch deal this week.
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 | 128GB memory card | $325.98 at Amazon
The Switch's built-in 32GB capacity is a poor effort from Nintendo to be honest, so a memory card would be on your shopping list soon after picking up a Nintendo Switch deal. So why not solve that problem with this bundle? It's an officially branded card, which admittedly is just for show, but you save a couple of bucks here over buying later on.
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 | £269.99 at ShopTo's eBay
If you'd rather pick up games at your leisure this is the cheapest standalone price for the Nintendo Switch by £20 compared to most other stores. Be sure to have a looksie at our selection of the best Nintendo Switch games if you want a little inspiration of what titles to shop for next.
Nintendo Switch | Crash Bandicoot Trilogy | £279 at AO
The remake of the classic Crash Bandicoot Trilogy is fantastic fun, especially if you like a challenge similar to how games used to be. This bundle's only a few quid more than the cheapest price for the console alone this week, making it one of the best Nintendo Switch deals around today.
Nintendo Switch | Mario Kart 8: Deluxe | £299 at Currys
With so many of the best cheap Nintendo Switch bundles selling out so fast at this time of year, we're surprised to see this one going for such a low price. This deal comes with a copy of Mario Kart 8: Deluxe which is one of the finest multiplayer games on the Switch.
Nintendo Switch | Switch Online 3-month sub | £285.99 at Amazon
Looking to start playing games online straight away? Then you'll need access to the new Nintendo Switch Online service and this bundle comes with a 3-month sub.
Nintendo Switch | Switch Online 12-month sub | £296.99 at Amazon
Like the offer above, but this version comes with a longer 12-month subscription. So if you know that you're into your online gaming and don't need a shorter term to try things out, this is the Nintendo Switch bundle for you.
Nintendo Switch | Smash Bros Ultimate | £309 at Currys
Smash Bros Ultimate is a huge multiplayer hit already, so don't expect the price to drop much more anytime soon. Unless you buy it in a discounted Nintendo Switch bundle like this one that is!
Nintendo Switch | Zelda: Breath of the Wild | £309 at Currys
Yes, Zelda was a launch game, so you'd expect a better Nintendo Switch bundle price than this. But here's the thing, Zelda currently costs at least £45 still, so you are actually saving a fair bit with this bundle. Zelda should be high on your list of games to buy anyway!
Nintendo Switch Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! Edition Pack | £339.99 at Nintendo
It's about time we had some proper Pokémon games on the Nintendo Switch and this new special edition bundle comes with the new Let's Go, Pikachu! game, a Poké Ball Plus controller and themed Joy-Cons. This has sold out at most stores already!
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 18 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
Yes and it doesn't come with the console. But you won't actually need one 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 currently no sign of a Nintendo Switch Premium Edition console with one included.
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. So far we've seen 2K's NBA series, Snipper Clips 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 will be releasing 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.
