The Nintendo Switch is one of the most popular handheld gaming consoles, and finding the best Nintendo Switch deals can be tricky given that the console (like most Nintendo hardware) has held its value extremely well since its first release back in 2017, and doesn't stray far from the retail price of $299/£259. 

Recently, we've seen some impressive savings on the Nintendo Switch console that are typically only found during retail events like Black Friday and Prime Day, such as this amazing Nintendo Switch Black Friday bundle which has seemingly arrived early. It's rare for Nintendo to discount the Switch console with its sale event, so the best Nintendo Switch deals are usually in the form of bundles with extra games. 

Looking for a smaller console? We also have a guide to the best Switch Lite prices. If you want to know more about the varying Switch consoles, we've broken down the differences between the Nintendo Switch and Switch OLED.

The Nintendo Switch has retained its value incredibly well for the last six years, which is mainly due to early stock issues meaning that there's still a relatively large demand for the portable games device. Nearly all Nintendo titles and hardware seem to hold their value for a long time anyway, so buying yourself a Nintendo Switch or Switch OLED is a great investment. 

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 going for that one if you can. 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 decide if you're getting a good deal for your budget. Our live widgets will pull in the best prices for your region, and we update this page regularly with the best Nintendo Switch deals! The best Nintendo Switch price we've ever seen was $259 over at Amazon, so that's the price to beat.

The best Nintendo Switch deal in the UK right now is this bundle package direct from Nintendo, which is available for pre-order and to be released on October 20. 

What makes this a great deal is that the bundle items are essentially free (or £0.99), if you consider that the retail price of the console is usually £259 anyway. Switch Sports is a fun game that usually costs £30, costing extra for the leg strap, and while stocks last you can get a free Switch Sports water bottle with this purchase too.
