No need to wait for Prime Day: The best Nintendo Switch deals available now

PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch 11

If you’re reading this, chances are that you’ve noticed that demand for Nintendo Switch deals has far outstripped supply in recent months. Both the Switch and the Switch Lite have been low on stock from some retailers, and there’s some serious price gouging going on from independent sellers.

So at this stage, you’re doing well to find either of the consoles at or near retail price. However, they can be found, and there are some nice deals on games and accessories too. We’ve rounded up the best Nintendo Switch deals around right now.

Amazon Prime Day Nintendo Switch deals: Here’s what is available right now

Amazon Prime Day is still a week away, but what if you’re looking for a good deal on a Nintendo Switch now? There aren’t any Amazon Prime Day Nintendo Switch deals live yet, but if you are a dedicated Amazon shopper there are some good Switch deals for you. Just be aware that these aren’t part of Prime Day and that there could be even steeper discounts later. Of course, there will also be more people competing to get in on those limited deals.

Right now here are the best Nintendo Switch deals around, including some fans’ favorite games (and we’ll be updating this regularly in the days to come):

If none of these deals quite do it for you, check out more from other retailers below.

Editors note: All deals were live at the time of writing, but the marketplace for Switch consoles and games is changing quickly. We’ll periodically update the page as deals end and pop up.

Nintendo Switch consoles

PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch 12

There’s a reason that the Nintendo Switch is in short supply. Nintendo really nailed it with this hybrid console, with sales being consistently high since it’s launch back in 2017. Unlike the PS4 and Xbox One S, it can be used as a wireless handheld device — not unlike the Nintendo 3DS, another insanely popular Nintendo product — or it can be docked and connected to a TV to be played in the normal home console style.

While you won’t find big discounts on Switch consoles right now, at least stocks are starting to return to the shelves. Here are the best Nintendo Switch deals around right now.

Switch Lite consoles

More than two years after the launch of the original Nintendo Switch, the company announced a new variant of the console: the Nintendo Switch Lite. As the name suggests, this console is a watered-down version of the original. This means you get fewer features but also a lower price.

However, the Nintendo Switch Lite does not skimp out on the game library. Almost every game the original Switch supports the Switch Lite also supports (with the exception of games that require Joy-Con usage, such as 1-2-Switch). If you buy a physical game for your main Switch, that cartridge will also work in your Switch Lite. Additionally, if you use the same Nintendo account on both systems, you’ll have access to the digital games you’ve paid for through the Nintendo eShop.

The Switch Lite isn’t quite as scarce as the Switch, but you’re still hard-pressed to find big bargains for now. Here are some of the best prices we could find.
