Nintendo Switch OLED is only $296 at Walmart. Frankly, I'm shocked

I've been tracking Nintendo Switch prices during sales events for about five years now and, to be honest, it's usually a joyless experience. The most I've seen shaved off the price during these events is around $30. But everything has changed already this year, Walmart currently has the Nintendo Switch OLED in white for just $296. Read that again. It has only ever been lower than this twice (that we've seen), never at a mainstream retailer and only by $1. Plus you get the Mightyskins custom console and voucher bundle, too.

I think it's because a new console is rumoured to be out next year, but this is still way cheaper than I imagined (see our Nintendo Switch OLED prices post for context).

Overview: With a glorious OLED screen and joy-con included, this is the best the Switch gets. It connects to the TV and provides fun for the entire family (or just yourself, we're not judging).

Price history: This has seen a record-low of $290 previously, so this is not far off.

Overview: The OLED screen is beautiful and with joy-cons included, all you'll need is a game. It connects to the TV so your whole household can play together. We love this console, and this price is a reasonable low.

Price history: This deal isn't as good as the US deal, but it's possible it'll fall lower. We've seen it on sale for £264.99 before.
