Nintendo Switch deals

While Nintendo Switch consoles are still hard to find, Nintendo Switch deals are appearing everywhere this month.  

Amazon, for instance, is taking from $10 to $40 off select Switch titles during its current sale. The sale includes popular titles like Mario Kart 8, Mortal Kombat 11, and Donkey Kong Country. If you're looking for the console itself, make sure to check out our where to buy Nintendo Switch guide. Otherwise, here are the best Switch deals you can get right now. 

Best Nintendo Switch deals right now

Best Nintendo Switch deals 

The Nintendo Switch (with extended battery) retails for $299. The updated console was released last year with an improved battery that 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 shortages have made finding a console near-impossible. The few consoles that you do find are usually priced upwards of $400 and are sold by third-party merchants. We've noticed that Switch consoles do come in stock, but tend to sell out rapidly. If you're looking for a console, your best bet is to check stores like Best Buy and GameStop daily (stock is sometimes replenished in the morning) and don't hesitate to buy one when you see it. 

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.
