Nintendo Switch Amazon sale deals are starting to appear as the Prime Early Access sale gets underway. The all-new sale event has started in Europe and the US isn't far behind. We'll be following the best Nintendo Switch deals on this page as they go live. 

It's rare to find discounts on Switch consoles, and even rarer to find big discounts. The majority of the biggest Amazon Switch deals tend to be on games and bundles. The consoles themselves are highly sought after. Stock still often runs low, even at full price, so even moderate discounts are worth shouting about (which we will; don't worry about that). 

When assessing whether Nintendo Switch Amazon deals are good buys, bear in mind Nintendo's recommended retail prices. Nintendo Switch sells that standard at $299 / £259, Nintendo Switch Lite at $199 / £199, and Nintendo Switch OLED at $349.99 / £309.99. Be aware that some of the savings claimed by Amazon are based on marked-up RRPs above those prices.

But right now, we have good news for anyone in the UK because there's a rate (albeit small) discount on the Nintendo Switch console alone – now just £249 (a £10 saving). You can check out this and other early Nintendo Switch Amazon sale deals below, and stay tuned because we'll be updating this page throughout the 48-hour sale. During Prime Day in July, we saw the Nintendo Switch Lite at a record low of £169 in the UK and we saw a good bundle in the US offering the regular Nintendo Switch with a carry case and memory card for $439.

These deals are available for everyone, with no Prime membership. But if any official Prime Early Access sale deals come up, you'll need Amazon Prime member membership. You can sign up for a free 30-day Prime trial to get access (you can always cancel after the event, if you want to). Want more deals? Don't miss our Apple Amazon sale round up.

Ok, so it's far from the biggest of discounts, but it's rare that Amazon knocks any money off the console alone so £10 off may well be the best deal you'll see this October. Amazon's claiming this as a £50 saving, but Nintendo sells the Switch at £259.
