Here are the best deals on Nintendo Switch consoles right now:
Nintendo Switch with Starlink Starter Pack and Accessory for $309
This is probably the best deal from a major retailer for a new Nintendo Switch. When it first came out, the Starlink: Battle for Atlas starter pack was $74.99. Now you can get it as a $9 add-on, with a free accessory. In my opinion, Starlink is criminally overlooked. It’s a really fun game, with some high-quality, real-world collectibles Regardless of your thoughts on toys to life, if you want to get a sweet Arwing model with functionality and Starfox content not found on other consoles, grab this amazing Nintendo Switch deal.
Nintendo Switch, Game, USB-C to HDMI adapter and Pin for $329.99
This deal on Nintendo Switch has everything you need to start your journey into the world of Nintendo. Pick from grey or neon red/blue console, then add one of the following Nintendo Switch games:
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
- Super Mario Odyssey
- Super Mario Party
- The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
- Splatoon 2
I personally recommend Breath of the Wild, but that’s just because I think it’s the best game ever. The other games on the list are also excellent. This Switch bundle deal now includes an Ematic USB-C to HDMI adapter with built-in card reader, as well as either a Super Mario or Mario Kart enamel pin. All that for $329.99.
Nintendo Switch Let’s Go Pikachu Bundle Back in Stock
I thought we’d never see this bundle again, especially not at its list price, and yet, here it is. Get this special edition Nintendo Switch bundle with Let’s Go Pikachu and Pokeball Plus for $399.96. If I were speculating, I would suggest buying this just for the future collectible value, but there is no guarantee of a return on investment, so there’s a lot of risk there.
Nintendo Switch Mario Tennis Aces/1-2 Switch Bundle
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. This is the Switch bundle that just keeps on going. When all the other deals have dried up, you can almost always count on this one still being live.
Nintendo Switch With 64GB or 128GB Micro SD Card Bundle Deal
Consider one of these Nintendo Switch storage bundles if you’re looking for the perfect bundle to give someone as a gift. A surprising amount of people still think of video game consoles requiring memory cards, and the Switch branding on this SanDisk Micro SD card removes any doubt as to its compatibility.
amFilm Tempered Glass Screen Protector
While not on sale, I highly recommend picking this up to protect your investment. It goes on the screen easily and keeps your Switch from getting scratches in its beautiful screen. All it takes is one errant piece of dust on the dock or the screen to sneak a scratch on there, so don’t curse at your bad luck. There are two protectors in here, and honestly I’ve never even used the second one, because it’s lasted since launch.
Nintendo Pro Controller on Sale
The Nintendo Pro Controller debuted at $69.99 and even at that price, it’s worth picking up. It’s a really excellent controller. The new price seems to have settled down to $56.99, and it’s been there for quite some time. If you just picked up a Switch, or you’ve had one since launch, grab yourself one of these.
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.
