Nintendo Switch Memorial Day Sale live blog: These were the best deals
The Memorial Day Sale has ended, but there may still be some good deals to grab.
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.

- GameStop: Get $14.40 off LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga (opens in new tab)

Amazon is currently offering the Nintendo Switch Lite in Yellow for only $184.99 (opens in new tab), 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 (opens in new tab). 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 (opens in new tab) 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 (opens in new tab) and, if you're very quick because there are only a couple left, $35.99 off the Mario set, now $80 (opens in new tab).
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 (opens in new tab). 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 (opens in new tab) and $20 off the 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim Launch Edition (opens in new tab) – now $39.99. Amazon has Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy for
$59.99 $47.10 (opens in new tab).
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 (opens in new tab) and a whole range of Mario games reduced from $59.99 to $49.94 (opens in new tab).
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 (opens in new tab). That's a saving of $11.04 – not spectacular when you consider Walmart's selling Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for $49.94 (opens in new tab), 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 (opens in new tab), 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 (opens in new tab). 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 (opens in new tab). 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 (opens in new tab). 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.
These rare Japanese imported Joy-Con Neon Green/Neon Pink Splatoon 2 branded controllers may just be the thing for the collector in you. They're on sale now on Amazon. Save $23.01 and get these Nintendo Switch controllers for $76.99 (opens in new tab).
Save a huge 42% on this SanDisk 128GB microSDXC-Card for Nintendo Switch. This officially licensed storage card was $34.99 now $20.39 at Amazon. If you're serious about gaming on Switch you need the storage, and this is a bargain.
One of the best games of the last year has been Ubisoft's Immortals Fenyx Rising, ant fans of Zelda should do themselves a big favour and play this epic RPG. Save a massive 54% at Amazon on Immortals Fenyx Rising:
$59.99 / $27.85 (opens in new tab)
Save $19.00 on this Nintendo Switch Gray Joy-Con edition at Amazon. It may not be much but there are few Switch console deals this weekend at the moment, and the gray models is rather swish. Buy it now for $299.99. (opens in new tab)

Quick update: right now this Memorial Day deal on the yellow Nintendo Switch Lite is looking like one of the strongest of the weekend. Over at Amazon you can get the Nintendo Switch Lite down to just $184.99 (opens in new tab). However, there seems to be just two models left at this price, so hurry.
UK imports of the Nintendo Switch OLED are still selling for less than the US standard retail price over at Amazon, you can the Nintendo Switch OLED for under $340, a saving of over $10 (opens in new tab). Stock has been so patchy recently on the OLED model, that any discount is pretty good right now.

$27.99 to $19.88 (opens in new tab). Widely considered the preferred way to play Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, you can perfect your skills and recall playing one of Nintendo's most-loved consoles. Pick up this piece of gaming design history for less this Memorial Day.
Good news for anyone looking for the Nintendo Switch Lite! Over the weekend, we've been flagging up a $10 saving on the coral pink version (opens in new tab) of the portable little console as just about the only Nintendo Switch Memorial Day deal going, but we know that colour might not be to everyone's taste.
However, the saving (as small as it is) has now been extended to the Switch Lite in blue – reduced from $199.99 to $189.99. (opens in new tab) Hurrah! (Ok, ok, it $10, but Nintendo Switch deals have been so thin on the ground that this is enough to get excited about – and remember that just a few months ago a Nintendo Switch Lite of any kind was practically impossible to find).
Your other option for a discount on the Nintendo Switch Lite if you don't want that Coral pink option or the blue is to go for a bundle with a micro SD card, and to be honest, you're probably going to use it. The Switch Lite, like the original Switch, only has 32GB of storage space. That could fill up with games pretty quickly, which is why we rate the SanDisk Switch-branded micro SD cards among the best Nintendo Switch accessories.
Amazon has the turquoise Switch Lite with a SanDisk 128GB micro SD card for $220.48 (opens in new tab), a saving of $14.50. There are savings on bundles with a 256GB (pictured) or 64GB micro SD card too.
... or if you do like the Coral pink, you can save even more: $24.50 off Switch Lite Coral + 128GB SD card for £210.48 (opens in new tab).
As we move into the latter part of Memorial Day itself, it's starting to look unlikely that we're going to see any better Nintendo Switch Memorial day deals than those we've flagged so far. The good news is that some of those are still available those.
For the original Nintendo Switch, we're not seeing any discounts on the standard retail price of $299.99, which you can get direct from the Nintendo Store (opens in new tab) and from Amazon (opens in new tab). From Amazon, you can even can get an ever so generous $1 discount on the Switch Animal Crossing: New Horizons edition, now $298.99 (opens in new tab).
For a slightly better saving, consider a bundle of Switch with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for
$359.98 $348.94 (opens in new tab) or the Switch with a 128GB micro SD card for $334.98 $319.49.
If you're more interested in the portable little Switch Lite, you can get that in Coral pink or blue for
$199.99 $189.99 (opens in new tab).
And the elusive Nintendo Switch OLED? The good news is that it is at least in stock – both Adorama (opens in new tab) and Amazon (opens in new tab) have it available at the standard price of $349. Amazon even has a small discount on UK imports – now $338 (opens in new tab) (don’t worry, it qualifies for free delivery).
Happy Tuesday! Overnight, that brilliant Best Buy refurb deal has sold out for the white console (boo), but fear not as Best Buy also has a super-similar deal on a Special Edition console with an Animal Crossing theme (opens in new tab) – down from $299.99 to $269.99 (a saving of $30). Whether or not you're an Animal Crossing fan, this is a good deal – (and the mint green/pale blue colour theme is delightful).
Elsewhere, we're still into this chance to get the Nintendo Switch Lite (in Coral) for just $189.99 over at Amazon (opens in new tab) (a small saving of $10 but very nice indeed).
Deals are well and truly beginning to wind down now. But still going is this mega-deal on a Nintendo Switch Pro controller with a Super Smash Bros. theme, now only $35 at Walmart (opens in new tab). Give these usually go for $60 in the sale, this is a thumping deal...
We'll take a moment to remind you of this bumper party-time deal from Walmart, which includes a bunch of awesome games (Super Mario Party, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, 1-2 Switch, Arms, Overcooked 2, Kirby Star Allies if you're wondering) AND a Switch OLED for just $639.99. Ideal if you're wanting to play in a group, or get a first taste of the awesomeness the Switch has to offer! Save $147.20 on this deal right now at Walmart (opens in new tab).
A slightly offbeat one, but Plants vs Zombies: Battle for Neighborville is currently only $19.99 at Target (opens in new tab). Heard of it? Us neither, but it's got almost five stars and is 38 per cent off, so well worth a punt! In the mood for some Mario? Target also has Super Mario Odyssey on at $49.99 (saving you a fab $10 (opens in new tab)).
If you want even more merriment, head to Game Stop, which still has Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga reduced from $59.99 to $46.49 (opens in new tab). Plus, Amazon's deal on Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy for $47.10 (opens in new tab) (down from $59.99) is also still live and kicking.
