Amazon's Prime sale is storming ahead, and we're seeing plenty of actually decent deals. After recent sales showed the Nintendo Switch doesn't tend to budge much, price-wise, we are super-surprised to see some cuts on the Switch today. You can pick up the OLED Switch for a record-low price of just £292 right NOW (opens in new tab) (usually £309.99). This is the lowest price we've ever seen on the Switch OLED so we think you should grab it immediately. 

Want a bundle? Amazon UK has the OLED console bundled with Pokémon Legends Arceus for just £299 (usually £359.98 altogether) (opens in new tab). This saves you a whopping £60.98 altogether, and is a discount on the usual Switch OLED even without the game. 

If you're after the original Nintendo Switch, Amazon UK also has the console for just £249.99 (opens in new tab) – that's just under £10 off the RRP, which doesn't seem like much to shout about, but it's the lowest recorded price on Amazon since January this year. And if it's the smaller sibling that that takes your fancy, Amazon currently has the Nintendo Switch Lite for £186 (opens in new tab) – around £12 off the RRP. 

If you're wondering why we're shouting about what might appear as very small discounts, it's worth noting that we rarely see consoles reduced, so these Switch deals are hard to beat.
