The cheapest Nintendo Switch bundles, deals and sale prices in November 2021

We're now one month on from the permanent price cut to the Nintendo Switch in Europe and we've already seen the console hit its lowest price ever in the UK. As we suggested when the announcement was first made, we really are on the cusp of seeing the best Nintendo Switch deals ever. Whether you want the console by itself or a great value Nintendo Switch bundle, you can find them all right here.

As soon as we hear of a discounted console or Joy-Con hitting the shelf we'll bring you all the latest prices. We've been scouring the web for all the latest discounts in preparation for this year's Black Friday deals and you'll find all our top picks of the best Nintendo Switch bundles just below. 

If you're looking to kit yourself out with everything you need straight from the off, you can save some serious cash with these offers. The disappointing news for those in the US is that Nintendo Switch consoles and bundles are running frustratingly low this week. Just the Animal Crossing Switch is available at Best Buy – and that's it. Those in the UK, though. can make some terrific savings with the recent price cut. We saw a Nintendo Switch for just £249.99 at Argos and Amazon – and that's even before the Black Friday Nintendo Switch deals have got underway.

Meanwhile, there are currently no Nintendo Switch OLED bundles in the US or UK. When there is stock, don't expect any savings at this early stage. The revamped console only came out recently, after all!

Remember, to play online multiplayer and get other benefits like free games, you'll want to pick up a Nintendo Switch Online subscription deal as well. 

So, if you're not interested in waiting for Nintendo Switch OLED stock, here are all the best Nintendo Switch deals available right now. Keep your eyes peeled throughout the weeks ahead in the Black Friday sales for the possibility of even bigger discounts on games and accessories later this year.

The latest cheap Nintendo Switch deals

The comparison chart below will bring you the best Nintendo Switch deals on the console by itself. As stock fluctuates, however, we have seen prices rise and fall with demand. Don't pay any more than the US MSRP of $299 and the UK RRP of £259, then, because as dire as stock may seem those costs do ultimately drop back down again with a new wave of inventory. 

Scroll down a little further for all the Nintendo Switch bundles on offer.

If you're after a cheaper alternative, the Nintendo Switch Lite can be found for around $199 (£199). This handheld only console doesn't dock, however, and doesn't feature detachable Joy-Con. We're rounding up all the best Nintendo Switch Lite bundles if you want to check it out in more detail.

Nintendo Switch (Gray): $299 at Best Buy
Nintendo Switch stock has been relatively stable in the US for a good while now, but it's currently unavailable to buy almost everywhere. There is some stock of the gray Switch console right now Best Buy, though. Our best guess is that retailers are holding out for a big restock before Black Friday.

Nintendo Switch Animal Crossing Edition: $299.99 at Best Buy
After falling out of stock for a couple of weeks, the Nintendo Switch Animal Crossing Edition is available once more at Best Buy. It's not strictly a deal, sure, but as an item with limited availability, it's always one worth sharing – especially if you love that pastel color palette on the dock and Joy-Con. One important note: a copy of Animal Crossing: New Horizons is not included.

Nintendo Switch (Neon) | Mario Kart 8 Deluxe + 3-months NSO: $299 at Best Buy
This Nintendo Switch bundle will go on sale over Black Friday from November 21. It's the very same bundle that Nintendo has sold over the previous two Black Friday sales in the US. You get a Switch (Neon) console, a copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and 3-months of Nintendo Switch Online membership. It's still good value as all of these items would cost around $370 at full price.

Nintendo Switch | 128GB memory card: $334.98 $321.99 at Amazon
You're not saving too much here, but you can shave $13 off the price of a Nintendo Switch console and 128GB official Nintendo memory card when you grab both together in a bundle at Amazon right now. Considering stock has been so low over the last few months that's an excellent offer, though if you're not fussed about picking up a Nintendo branded memory card you might find better deals on microSD cards in the future.

There are actually four different Nintendo Switch bundles available at Argos but this is the standout offer. Whether you add Monster Hunter Rise, Bravely Default 2 or Paper Mario Origami King to your basket along with a Switch console you'll save £10 off the price of each game. That makes them just £29.99.

Nintendo Switch | Mario Kart 8 Deluxe: £289.99 at Game
Perhaps the most popular choice, this Switch bundle comes with all-time favourite Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The frenetic racer is a blast in multiplayer and will likely dredge up some happy memories of the N64 days. This is a game that is hardly ever discounted so it's not a bad pairing with the console at £30.

Nintendo Switch | The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword HD: £289.99 at Game
The latest price cut brings the cost of this Nintendo Switch and The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword HD bundle down to its lowest price yet.

Nintendo Switch bundles: how to spot a good deal

Just because Nintendo Switch bundles are cheap might not mean they are good deals. Many retailers often include cheaper games with their Nintendo Switch bundles and still charge standard price. Games readily available for $20 - $30 can sneak their way into the premium-priced deals, lowering the overall value of the offering. 

In this case, it's worth picking up a Nintendo Switch bundle with a full $60 game and grabbing the cheaper title separately if you're desperate to play it. For this reason, it's always worth double checking the going price of the bundled game you're picking up against the overall cost to make sure you're getting a good deal. Nintendo Switch sales outside of busy shopping periods (Black Friday or the holidays) are more likely to try this tactic. 

The best games to get in a Nintendo Switch bundle

As mentioned above, first-party releases are the games you'll want to look for in order to get the best Nintendo Switch bundle deals. These are the games that have been developed and produced by Nintendo themselves, so that's the likes of Mario Kart, Mario Party, The Legend of Zelda, Metroid and so on.

As these titles do not usually fall much below their usual price (even years after launch) your best option to get them for cheap is as part of a Nintendo Switch bundle. We've seen games effectively receive discounts of up to 50% when bought as part of a bundle.

When to shop for Nintendo Switch deals

The best Nintendo Switch deals are usually found around the holiday period. You'll find the year's biggest games tend to release between October and December, which gives bundles a higher value when these titles are included at a discount price. However, a new Nintendo Switch bundle generally pops up along with any big first-party release. We'll be looking out for any featuring Metroid Dread when that launches later this year to help you save some cash on your Switch.

Nintendo Switch Lite

The Nintendo Switch Lite was released at just $199.99/£199.99 in 2019. That's $100/£80 less than the original Switch console. If you want to play games on the TV as well, you should go for the standard Nintendo Switch instead as the Lite is only playable in handheld mode.

The Nintendo Switch Lite comes in multiple colour options. You can pick one up now in turquoise, gray, yellow or coral pink, as well as a special Pokemon Zacian & Zamazenta Edition.

Extra Joy-Con deals

If you're looking for more multiplayer options, you might want to check out the latest Joy-Con deals. These controllers come in $10 more expensive than the Pro Controller (more on that below) but you do get two separate controllers to expand your options. Nintendo Switch deals rarely include these controllers in their bundles as well, so it's not worth holding out for a mega-bundle.

Or maybe you just fancy some different colors for your own use - the Neon Red / Blue Joy-Con pack offers opposing colors to the ones the console ships with, for example (left red and right blue). Check out the latest prices below, or shop the best cheap Joy-Con sales going right now.

Nintendo Switch Pro controller deals

You won't actually need a Nintendo Switch Pro controller to play any games, so don't feel pressured in to buying one. The Nintendo Switch Pro controller is a more traditional-style pad and launched alongside the Nintendo Switch. Prices aren't cheap though, starting around $69.99/£64.99. Nintendo Switch bundles have offered the Pro Controller in the past, but these are rare - and often higher value bundles setting you back a bit more cash - so we wouldn't recommend waiting for them. Check out more Nintendo Switch Pro Controller deals in our dedicated guide. 

Do I need to buy extra controllers for multiplayer on Nintendo Switch?

Possibly not! Remember how the Joy-Con controller splits in two? Turn them sideways and you get two basic controllers, each with their own analogue stick and face buttons - the d-pad acts as face functions on the left controller. We've seen 2K's NBA series, Snipper Clips, FIFA 19, and Mario Kart being used this way for local multiplayer in both docked and tablet modes. So you get multiplayer functionality straight out of the box with no additional purchase required.

However, if you want to play four-player games, then you're going to need to invest in an extra pair of Joy-Con controllers or some Pro controllers. We'd buy the Joy-Cons as a pair (see our comparison chart above) as you'll save a bit of cash over buying them separately. Better yet, if your friends own a Switch, ask them to bring their controllers to the party!

Nintendo Switch bundles rarely offer extra controllers at the standard price, as these are particularly pricey gamepads. However, retailers sometimes include a Pro Controller in their Nintendo Switch sales with a slightly higher price tag. 

Nintendo Switch Micro SD memory card deals

With only 32GB of internal storage, you'll be wanting to pick up a cheap memory card or two for your new Nintendo Switch for any digital purchases or the inevitable game-fixing patches. Don't fret though, they're actually surprisingly cheap, with even 64GB ones coming in at under £20/$25.

What memory cards does the Nintendo Switch need? Those will be Micro SD cards also known as, depending on their size, as MicroSDHC (up to 32GB) or MicroSDXC (up to a huge 2TB soon). Nintendo also has their own branded cards, but you'll be paying more just for a label. So for now, we'd take a look at this range of cheap MicroSDXC Nintendo Switch-friendly cards.
