Where to buy Nintendo Switch online is a question that frequently pops up as Christmas approaches. Stock can sometimes be hard to get a hold of, especially during the seasonal holidays, so that's where we come in!

Knowing where to look for a Nintendo Switch for the RRP is key if you're looking to buy: many retailers can cheekily bump up the price to make you pay more than you should be. For reference, if you're looking the regular Nintendo Switch retails at $299.99/£259, the Nintendo Switch Lite at $199.99/£199 and Switch OLED at $349.99/£309. In this guide we're going to be linking you to direct retailers that have the popular console in stock in both the US and UK based on each individual console model, starting with the OLED. We've also featured some of our favourite bundles so that you have a great starting point if you're new to Switch gaming entirely.
