Best Nintendo Switch deals in January 2021

Nintendo Switch deals

Nintendo Switch deals are back in stock. After a shortage of Switch consoles last year, it's now easier to find the Nintendo Switch at list price. Of course, if you already have a Switch and want to enjoy some Nintendo Switch deals on games and accessories, you've come to the right place. 

We're rounding up the best deals on accessories, games, and more. If you do need a console, then make sure to check out our where to buy Nintendo Switch guide.

Best Nintendo Switch deals 

Nintendo Switch deals

The Nintendo Switch (with extended battery) retails for $299. The console with the improved battery was released in 2019. The updated battery lasts a maximum of nine hours, rather than 6.5. (You can spot the new console from its packaging: the upgraded Nintendo Switch box has a red background). 

However, Switch demand has made finding Switch deals near-impossible. While it's easier to find the console in stock, you'll almost never see it selling for less than list price. But not all hope is lost. We've noticed that Switch deals do happen, but tend to sell out rapidly. If you're looking for console deals, your best bet is to check stores like Best Buy and Amazon daily (stock is sometimes replenished in the morning) and don't hesitate to buy one when you see it on sale. In addition, look for bundles that include the console along with a free game or credit. 

Nintendo recently announced the new Nintendo Switch Mario Red & Blue Edition, which will go on sale February 12 for $299. It'll come with a bonus carrying case. 

Nintendo Switch Lite deals

The Editor's Choice Nintendo Switch Lite retails for $199. It's smaller and lighter than the traditional Switch which makes it even more portable. We love the Switch Lite's gorgeous, comfortable design, good battery life, and stellar game library. The Switch Lite is available in three colors: gray, turquoise, and yellow. 

Unlike the Nintendo Switch, the Switch Lite is slightly easier to find in stock. Usually Best Buy and GameStop have stock of the Switch Lite in various colors. As for as Switch Lite deals — don't expect any. The only deals we've seen are on refurb models, which only take $5 off and are very rare to find.
