The best cheap Nintendo Switch bundle deals - all the latest sales in August 2022

GamesRadar logo GamesRadar 4 days ago Tabitha Baker

It used to be that you couldn't get the console for love nor money, but these days, Nintendo Switch deals are a lot easier to find in both the US and UK. More importantly, you can actually get a rare discount or two if you know where to look.

That's where we come in. Our team of bargain-hunters are always on the lookout for Nintendo Switch deals, and our price-matching software is also sniffing out reductions 24/7. With that in mind, you'll find any available price cuts here.

We generally see Nintendo Switch deals come and go in waves in both the US and UK, with bounties of stock available one week and shelves left barren the next. If you don't quite make it to the stock below, then, we can safely say more will be along shortly. While Nintendo Switch OLED stock took a slight hit at the start of July, we're back to full capacity now, with plenty of consoles on the shelves. If the recent wobble has taught us anything, though, it's that these devices aren't set in stone, and could still trickle out of grasp.

You'll find all the latest Nintendo Switch deals on the console by itself just below, and our pick of the best bundles available right now further down the page. 

Today's best Nintendo Switch deals

If you're looking for Nintendo Switch deals on the console by itself, we're rounding up all the latest prices from retailers across the web just below. You'll find the best offers on the shelves right now in these comparison charts, but if you're after a bundle deal, you'll find all the latest discounts further down the page.

If you're just looking for a handheld-only console, it's worth checking out the Nintendo Switch Lite deals below. They are considerably cheaper than the main console (and much cheaper than the OLED model), but you are getting limited functionality without a docked mode. The standard price on these devices is $199 / £199.

Considering we very rarely see too many bundle discounts in the US, those on the hunt for a standard edition console should take note here.

What is the Nintendo Switch price?

To make sure you're getting a good deal, it's important to know the base prices of Switch consoles. In the US especially, we're used to seeing some merchants jack up the cost when rivals have sold out. 

The normal Nintendo Switch price is $299 in the US while the UK RRP is now £259 (dropping by £20 in September 2021). As for the Switch Lite, the US MSRP is $199 and the UK's price is set at £199. The Nintendo Switch OLED price is $349 in the US and £309 in the UK. 

Don't be caught out, if there's a listing that goes above these prices, double-check that it's part of a bundle or includes something noteworthy - and always ensure it's from a trusted seller! 

Which Nintendo Switch should you buy?

There are now (or soon to be) three models of Nintendo Switch to choose from. Each one does offer a different experience, though, so it's important to choose the right version for you.

  • Nintendo Switch (standard): This is the standard console experience as introduced back in 2017 (though most consoles on the shelves these days are the 2019 versions with a boosted battery life). Offering detachable controllers that can be shared between two people and a portable screen that allows you to play on TV or in handheld mode, it's perfect for multiplayer and single-player games.
  • Nintendo Switch Lite: The Nintendo Switch Lite is a handheld-only alternative, pitched as an entry-level console for kids or anyone playing on the go. While it's a lot cheaper, it can't be used on TV, doesn't have detachable controllers, and lacks some features like joypad rumble. However, it will still play all the same games.
  • Nintendo Switch OLED model: The latest version of the Switch features a 7-inch OLED screen, improved kickstand, and a slightly more streamlined build but aside from a few external updates, it offers all the same functionality as the standard Switch, complete with the same performance as well. 

Which Nintendo Switch bundles are available?

The only games we've seen with bundle options on the Nintendo Switch are Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Diablo 3, Splatoon 2, Fortnite, Fortnite Wildcat, Super Mario Odyssey, Mario Tennis Aces and 1-2 Switch, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Mario Red & Blue, Pokemon Zacian and Zamazenda (Switch Lite), Fortnite, Monster Hunter Rise, and Dragon Quest XI S. However, it's worth noting that many of these special editions are no longer easy to find.

While UK retailers pair games and consoles themselves, we see far fewer Nintendo Switch bundles available in the US. That's because they are generally only available as part of a limited edition console release, or as part of a major sales period. You can still find these Nintendo Switch bundles on the shelves, but it's well worth making sure you're getting a fair price for your gear. Price inflation is rife here, with some third party sellers going above $1,000 for rarer bundles. You should be paying $299-$319 at the most.

Are Nintendo Switch bundles worth it?

It's easy to fall into a Nintendo Switch bundle trap. Retailers can sometimes charge more for a game when bundled in with a console than they're actually selling it for themselves separately. That means it's well worth checking for current deals on the game you are choosing, as sometimes bundle prices are set based upon an MSRP that doesn't reflect a game's current price. 

However, if you spot a Nintendo Switch bundle with a game or accessory for the same price as the console by itself it's an automatic winner. 

You'll need something to keep that console safe - we're rounding up all the best Nintendo Switch cases available right now. We're also showing you how to find the right Nintendo Switch Online price for you, and rounding up all the latest Ring Fit Adventure deals as well.
