Update: This live blog has now ended, but it's still worth having a look at the deals below, as some have continued (while stocks last). Or just head over to our permanent page on the best Nintendo Switch deals.  

On this page, we were keeping track of the best Nintendo Switch Memorial Day deals, as and when they go live. The Nintendo Switch is an incredibly popular game console and stock has been hard to come by, so you may find that the deals vanish as soon as they appear, so be sure to move quick if you spot a deal you like.

Memorial Day 2022 is now over but still some of the deals below might be live. For more bargains on other items, follow our general Memorial Day Sale 2022 page and our Apple Memorial Day Sale 2022 roundup. The next sale event is Walmart Plus Weekend, so it might be worth checking out what deals you can find there too.

Amazon is currently offering the Nintendo Switch Lite in Yellow for only $184.99, but this offer is selling out fast. The Lite is a slimmer version of Nintendo's excellent handheld and can play most of the same games as the larger traditional version; the difference is it doesn't dock so games that need this aren't compatible.

The PowerA Fusion Pro Wireless Controller was $99 now $65 at Amazon; this is one of the best traditional pads for Nintendo Switch is the PowerA Fusion Pro Wireless Controller, and now it's got $30 slashed off its price at Amazon. It’s easy to connect and features programmable buttons… if you love the larger Xbox style controller this is a must-buy.

We're seeing a few small savings cropping up on the Switch Lite, which has been hard to get hold of in the US until recently. Amazon has the super portable console in coral reduced by 5% from $199.99 to $189.99. That's a saving of $10, which we'll happily take given the console's been so hard to get. 

If you're not taken by the coral (that is, pink) colour, if you're very, very quick you might be able to grab the Lite in yellow for even cheaper at $180.00 but there are only a couple left.

For a long time, Nintendo Switch stock in the US was so low there wasn't much point thinking about accessories. But now that the Switch is available and you might even have one, or be on the way to getting one this Memorial Day, it's worth looking at add-ons, and few are as exciting as real live Mario Kart racing on your kitchen floor! 

The Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit allows you to create a racecourse at home and race Mario and Luigi with friends and family (though each person will need a car, and  this kit is best for those who don't have thick carpets!). Amazon has $20.99 off the Luigi Home Circuit set, now $79 and, if you're very quick because there are only a couple left, $35.99 off the Mario set, now $80.

One good way to get savings on the Nintendo Switch is through bundle deals with SD cards. Chances are you'll want that extra storage space for your games – the Switch and Switch Lite only have an internal capacity of 32GB. You can quadruple that by bundling in a 128GB SanDisk Nintendo Switch SD card like in this bundle reduced by $14.50 to $220.48 at Amazon. Hurry, there's only stock left with the turquoise Switch Lite.

So how about games? If you've got a Switch and you're looking to fill up that storage space and then some, the Memorial Day sale is a good opportunity to boost your games collection. GamStop has a couple of decent deals, including Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga reduced from $59.99 to $46.49 and $20 off the 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim Launch Edition – now $39.99. Amazon has Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy for $59.99 $47.10.

But some of the best deals on games seem to be at Walmart, which has $20 off The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, now $39.99 and a whole range of Mario games reduced from $59.99 to $49.94.

We haven't spotted any very big Nintendo Switch Memorial Day deals on consoles yet, but then a lot of people are just happy to see the Switch in stock. The best offer we've seen on the original switch is this bundle deal at Amazon, which has the Switch with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for $359.99 $348.94. That's a saving of $11.04 – not spectacular when you consider Walmart's selling Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for $49.94, but still... if you're going to get the console and the game, you might as well get them together.

As for the portable Switch Lite, the best deal is still $10 off the Coral pink edition, also at Amazon.

Good morning! We're back searching for the best Nintendo Switch deals out there, and we've got to be honest... it's slim pickings! It seems that stock is pretty low at the moment, with the usually available Switch and Switch Lite going the way of the OLED – rarer than hen's teeth! 

Don't worry, we're searching for the best deals, and as soon as they come up, we'll post them here.

UPDATE: Amazon has just released a coral Nintendo Switch Lite, down from $199.99 to $189.99. Yes, that's only a saving of $10, but right now, the fact that you can actually buy the console at all is impressive!

Nintendo Switch OLED deal incoming! We've finally found a deal on the rare OLED console. Right now you can get the quality console in a bundle with Metroid Dread and save yourself $20 – down from $409.99 to $389.99 over at Best Buy. At the moment, what with huge demand on the Nintendo console, the fact that the OLED is in stock is worth noting. But to have a little money off with a game is very welcome.

Here's an interesting one. The Switch OLED standard retail price is $350 and to date we've never seen a new, boxed version of the console on sale in the US for less. We highlighted the deal below, but that's a bundle and you're really getting the discount on the game rather than the console itself. But a listing's popped up on Amazon offering the hard-to-find Switch OLED for $337.29. It's not flagged as a deal of any kind, but that's a saving of $12 on the usual US retail price. The catch? It appears to be a UK import with an adapter. If you can live with that, this might be a good way to get hold of this elusive console at a decent price.
