So if you're on a budget, the best Nintendo Switch deals are just a mouse click away. Here are the best Nintendo Switch deals you can right now.

Best Nintendo Switch deals

At full price, the new Nintendo Switch (with extended battery) retails for $299. We don’t recommend you spend more than that unless you’re getting extras thrown in as part of a Switch bundle deal. Also, keep in mind that there are now two Switch consoles on sale. 

Nintendo released an upgraded Switch in August with an improved battery life (it’ll last a maximum of nine hours, rather than 6.5). The upgraded Nintendo Switch costs the same as the original model, so make sure you’re buying the newer version to get the most bang for your money. You can spot the new console from its packaging: the upgraded Nintendo Switch box has a red background, whereas the original model has a gray background. 

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. 

Nintendo Switch bundle deals

Standalone Nintendo Switch deals tend to sell out in record time. That's why we recommend you buy a Nintendo Switch bundle to get the best value. Some bundles are priced the same as the standalone Switch console, so you're getting a free game out of the deal. Other Switch console bundles throw in accessories like a carrying case or microSD card for less than the cost of buying each item separately.
