The Nintendo Switch is as popular as ever, but finding the best Nintendo Switch deals can be tricky when there's so many retailers out there. In the last year, we've seen some pretty impressive savings on the original Nintendo Switch console during retail events like Black Friday and Prime Early Access but it's rare Nintendo themselves discount their own products. It's pretty rare the Nintendo Switch has a considerable sale that lasts long, so snapping one up as soon as you see it is always a good idea. 

The original Nintendo Switch was released back in 2017, but Nintendo later released a "V2" of the console (with the model number  HAC-001(-01)) in 2019. This later iteration features better battery life than the original, so it's definitely worth keeping an eye out for. A way to tell the difference between the two models is the box: the later HAC-001(-01) model comes packaged in an all-red box.  The current retail price of the Nintendo Switch is $299/£259, so anything above or below that price is a good starting point to work out whether you're getting a good deal or not. Our live widgets will pull in the best prices around wherever you're based, and we'll be sure to update this page regularly with any standout deals!

Above you'll see the current best prices on the console by itself, and below we've picked the best Nintendo Switch bundle deals. 

Remember, the Nintendo Switch has retained the same retail price of $299/£259 incredibly well, especially seeing that it was first released in 2017. That's mainly because early stock issues meant that there's still a massive demand for the portable games device, and as the asking price is fair, people are happy to pay for inflated prices on the console. But the good news is the best Nintendo Switch price we've ever seen was $259 over at Amazon US, so discounts are out there!
