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. On its own, the MSRP/RRP Nintendo Switch price is $299 in the USA and £279 in the UK, so you don't want to pay more than that unless you're getting some extras.
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 | free portable battery charger | $299 at Walmart
With most stores stubbornly sticking to that $299 MSRP this week, at least Walmart is throwing in a useful freebie. The portable battery charger extends your play time away from home and also doubles up as a stand.
Nintendo Switch | carry case | $302.25 at Walmart
If you're not too bothered about the battery pack Switch deal above, this might be the better option for you. The carry case 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 | Starlink + accessory | from $318 at Walmart
Starlink is the latest entry in the toys-to-life trend following the likes of Skylanders and Lego Dimensions before it. And Walmart's decided to bundle in the main game along with a ship and a pilot of your choice from a range of four options with this Nintendo Switch deal saving you a few bucks over buying individually.
Nintendo Switch | 128GB memory card | $325.87 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 | 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.

So take a look below for discounts on packages with games, hardware and accessories.
Nintendo Switch | Super Smash Bros Ultimate | £30 eshop credit | £299 at Currys
This is a great deal seeing as Smash Bros still commands a high price. This Nintendo Switch bundle has been around before at this price, but it's improved today with the inclusion of a Nintendo £30 eShop voucher.View Deal
Nintendo Switch | Mario Kart 8: Deluxe | £30 eshop credit | £299 at Currys
Most retailers are charging closer to £320 for this Nintendo Switch deal. Thankfully it's going for a much better price at Currys still. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is an essential game for multiplayer fans. The bundled in £30 Nintendo eShop voucher is perfect for picking up a few downloadable titles too.

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.
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!
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.
