Get free eShop credit with a new Switch.
If you’ve been holding out on picking up a new Nintendo Switch, your patience has paid off. Right now there are some good deals to be had on Nintendo’s mega-popular hybrid console. If you’re looking for some great games to start your Nintendo Switch collection, or to add to it, some of the best Nintendo Switch games are on sale right now. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Starter pack for $45 deal is live, and you can still get Super Mario Odyssey on sale for $45, and Splatoon 2, too.
Here are the best deals on Nintendo Switch consoles right now:
Nintendo Switch for $269.99 After Code (Ends Today!)
Right now Newegg has easily the best deal on a brand-new Nintendo Switch. You can get either a grey or neon red/neon blue Nintendo Switch set for $269.99 when you use the code EMCTVVA34 at checkout. The savings are instant and Newegg offers free shipping. It’s not quite as great a value in terms of real dollars as the eShop bundle, but if you don’t want to pay full price, even with $35 credit, this is your best opportunity to score.
Nintendo Switch With $35 eShop Credit for $299
Finally, a long-term Nintendo Switch deal with some teeth. There hasn’t been a truly great Nintendo Switch deal since the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Black Friday bundle. This eShop bundle isn’t quite as good, but it’s still pretty stellar. You get your choice of grey or neon red/neon blue Nintendo Switch consoles for $299, and Nintendo throws in $35 eShop credit right off the rip to get you going. There are tons of great Nintendo Switch games on eShop for you to spend your credit, or you can apply the credit toward the purchase of a fully-priced game and save $35 instantly. Go crazy! The world is your oyster.
Nintendo Switch Mario Tennis Aces/1-2 Switch Bundle
This remains a good deal on a new Nintendo Switch, especially since you get not one, but two games packed in. Mario Tennis Aces is a ton of fun, and is a perfect pack-in for new Nintendo Switch consoles. The launch-era 1-2 Switch isn’t quite as delightful as Mario Tennis Aces, but it has some definite high points: it’s fun at parties and it’s essentially free with this bundled deal. Since this bundle is at Walmart, you get free 2-day shipping on it, too.
Nintendo Switch With 64GB or 128GB Micro SD Card Bundle Deal
This doesn’t save much, but it’s a good way to expand your Nintendo Switch storage without having to do much thinking. It’s also a perfect bundle if you’re giving someone a Nintendo Switch as a gift. People who haven’t been in the video-game sphere for a while still think of consoles as needing memory cards, and the Switch branding on this SanDisk Micro SD card removes any doubt as to its compatibility.
Nintendo Pro Controller on Sale
The Nintendo Pro Controller is listed at $69.99, and even at full price I’d recommend it. Thankfully, it HAS come down in price since its introduction. It’s not at its lowest-price ever, but it’s at what appears to be a pretty stable discount.
There are also some good deals on Nintendo Switch games right now, so if you want to start playing some of the console’s best games and you want to save money while you’re doing it, check out the best Nintendo Switch game deals happening right now.
