Cyber Monday may be over, but there's a late entry among the best Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch deals. And it involves a discounted price on some hardware.

Right now, you can pick up a Nintendo Switch OLED for $317 from Ebay (opens in new tab) — that's a $32 discount off its normal price, which isn't much. But when it comes to Nintendo Switch devices, any saving is a welcome sight.

That's because Nintendo consoles are hardly ever discounted directly. Instead you can get discounted items bundled-in, which is good if you're not already a Switch owner, but means you could end up paying more as a result. 

While the Switch isn't the newest or fanciest gaming system you can buy, it does have a strong library of offbeat and unique games, and it's especially good for those who like to game on the go and for kids. The Cyber Monday deals still available on gaming gear can be hit-or-miss, but you can find some pretty good Switch discounts if you know where to look.

Read on for our picks of the best Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch deals you can still get, and don't forget to check out Cyber Monday deals live blog for the latest and greatest offers.

At present, we can't find any discounted Nintendo Switch systems from major retailers, though there is the aforementioned Ebay deal. Right now, you can order the Nintendo Switch, Nintendo Switch Lite or Nintendo Switch OLED and get them well before the holidays. We have no special insight as to whether the price could drop later, but substantial discounts on any of the three consoles are pretty rare in general.

Nintendo Switch Lite: $199 @ Best Buy (opens in new tab)
If you have no interest in hooking your Switch up to a TV, then consider the Nintendo Switch Lite instead. This handheld device is $100 cheaper than the base Switch, and has built-in Joy-Con controllers rather than detachable ones. There's also no way to connect it to a TV. Apart from that, though, it's still a Switch console, with access to the exact same game library.

Nintendo Switch Animal Crossing New Horizons Edition: $299 @ Best Buy (opens in new tab)
Once hard to come by, this Animal Crossing: New Horizons themed Nintendo Switch is now easily available at Best Buy. There's no discount, and the console itself has no special features, but you do get some lovely Animal Crossing stylings. That includes a themed dock, plus unique pastel green and blue Joy Cons. Sadly the game is not included, so you will need to purchase this separately. 

Nintendo Switch w/Mario Kart 8: $299 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)

Nintendo Switch w/Mario Kart 8: $299 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)
The Nintendo Switch has been a fan-favorite console ever since it debuted five years ago. This handheld hybrid offers two ways to play: either in handheld mode with a discrete six-inch, 720p screen, or hooked up to a TV. The Switch's portability and versatility speak for themselves, although the components are now a little dated. This bundle comes with a digital copy of Mario Kart 8 and three months of Nintendo Switch online

Nintendo Switch OLED: was $349 now $318 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)

If you don't already own a Switch of some kind, then the Nintendo Switch OLED is probably the way to go, especially with Amazon nearly matching Ebay's discounted price. This mild upgrade includes 7-inch OLED screen, improved speakers, more storage space, a larger kickstand and an Ethernet port on the dock. While the performance and game library are exactly the same as the base Switch, the bigger, more colorful screen makes a difference, as does the more stable kickstand.
