We have scoured the web to bring you all the best Nintendo Switch bundles and deals in March. We’re always on the hunt for the most enticing offers in the US and the UK and below you’ll find our handpicked options where you are.
It’s not just the standard Nintendo Switch that’s receiving discounts, but also the nicer Nintendo Switch OLED which features a vastly improved screen and speakers. Now that availability has greatly stabilized for all three consoles, offers are far more common. These are the top Nintendo Switch bundles and deals available now.
Today’s best Nintendo Switch console deals
The comparison chart below shows all the cheapest prices for a Nintendo Switch console by itself. Just make sure you don’t pay any more than the US MSRP of $299 and the UK RRP of £259 – even if there’s a stock shortage again. Sometimes it’s better to get one this way and buy your games or accessories separately if there are any considerable deals.
We’ve also got a look at the best prices for the Nintendo Switch OLED today as well. Remember, the RRP for this is $349.99 in the US and £309.99 in the UK. It’s still early days, but there have already been small discounts of up to $30/£30 on this new version of the console.
If you want some games or accessories with your purchase, scroll down a little further for all the Nintendo Switch bundles on offer.
Nintendo Switch bundles (USA)
Nintendo Switch (Neon) + Mario Kart 8 Deluxe + 3 Months Switch Online: $299.99 at Amazon
A very familiar Nintendo Switch bundle was back again for this year’s Black Friday – and it’s still available right now at Amazon. It includes the Switch console, a digital copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and a 3-month Switch Online membership. Bought together, this represents a saving of around $70. The only issue? Delivery is expected in late March.View Deal
Nintendo Switch (Neon): $295.50 at Amazon
If the above bundle sells out, your best option is to buy the console by itself and add your own extras. There are simply no other bundles available right now. Perhaps we’ll see some new Nintendo Switch bundles later this year.View Deal
Nintendo Switch OLED: $349 at Amazon
Unlike the standard console, there are no Nintendo Switch OLED deals or bundles available right now. Sometimes there is a small saving on the improved version of the hybrid console at Amazon, though, so it’s worth checking here before buying one.View Deal
Nintendo Switch | 128GB memory card: $334.98 $318.49 at Amazon
Save $16 – This isn’t a big saving, but you can shave around $16 off the price of a Nintendo Switch console and 128GB official Nintendo Switch memory card when you grab both in this bundle at Amazon. The Switch only comes with 32GB of internal storage and that will fill up quickly as your game library grows, so this is an inexpensive way to give you some extra capacity for more games.View Deal
Nintendo Switch | Mario Kart 8 Deluxe: $359.98 $348.94 at Amazon
Save $11 – This Nintendo Switch bundle has been as low as $299 in previous sales, so we’re not massively enthusiastic about it. Especially when the Black Friday bundle is better value and will be available later this month. However, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is one of the console’s most popular games, so for those who want to get it with a new console then this is the best price available today.View Deal
Nintendo Switch Animal Crossing Edition: $298.99 at Amazon Best Buy
The Nintendo Switch Animal Crossing Edition is now more regularly available in stores. This special edition console is not strictly a deal, sure, but as an item with limited availability, it’s always one worth sharing – especially if you love that pastel color palette on the dock and Joy-Con. One important note: a copy of Animal Crossing: New Horizons is not included.View Deal
Nintendo Switch | Switch Online 12-Month Membership + Carry Case: £337.99 $299 at Walmart
Save $38.99 – This latest Nintendo Switch bundle deal is available exclusively at Walmart. It’s not the best we’ve seen as the Black Friday bundle included Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and a 3-Month Switch Online Membership for the same price. Many would likely prefer an actual game and less time on Nintendo’s subscription service. Still, with the lack of stock elsewhere (and the fact you’re still saving almost $40) this is your best option before Christmas.View Deal

Still, it’s good value even now, as it includes both Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and a 3-month Switch Online membership.View Deal
Nintendo Switch | Minecraft: was £279.99 now £269.99 at Game
A console with Minecraft is always a popular Nintendo Switch bundle, so here’s the best price available today. It’s only a small £10 saving in total, but it’s the ideal game to start any youngster’s collection on the console.View Deal
Nintendo Switch OLED: was £309.99 now £289 at Amazon
A small £20 saving is available on the upgraded Nintendo Switch OLED model at Amazon. This is just £5 more than the lowest price we’ve ever seen for the console by itself.View Deal

Save £99.99 when you buy this Nintendo Switch OLED bundle, which comes with a console and a copy of Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit. This AR spin-off of the arcade racer allows you to create courses around your home, and zoom through them using the included kart toy with the footage beamed directly to your Switch. One to go for if you want a totally unique gaming experience.View Deal
Nintendo Switch OLED + The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword HD: was £359.98 now £309.99 at Argos
For those after a more traditional game, this Nintendo Switch OLED bundle comes with The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword HD for free – that’s a saving of £49.99. The game may have divided fans and critics on release, but it’s a fun and innovative entry in the series that tries some new ideas with motion controls.View Deal
Nintendo Switch + Ring Fit Adventure: was £309.99 now £299.99 at Very
Here’s a small saving on a popular bundle featuring the Nintendo Switch and the unique fitness game Ring Fit Adventure. Bought together, you’d usually pay around £330 for both the console and the game, so this is a good way to pick up Ring Fit Adventure for cheap.View Deal
Nintendo Switch | Mario + Rabbids Sparks Of Hope: was £309.98 now £269.98 at Argos
Mario + Rabbids Sparks Of Hope only just launched so this is a great way to pick up a Switch console with the RPG sequel for £20 less than the full price. Both colors are available, too, so you can choose your favorite.View Deal
Nintendo Switch OLED | Mario + Rabbids Sparks Of Hope: was £359.98 now £319.98 at Argos
Would you prefer the Nintendo Switch OLED instead? You can also get the more recent console with the brand new Mario + Rabbids Sparks Of Hope game in a bundle at Argos. The same £20 saving applies, so it’s a solid discount with limited bundles available right now.View Deal
Nintendo Switch OLED Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Edition: £319.99 at My Nintendo Store
The official Nintendo Store still has the Nintendo Switch OLED Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Edition available to buy following its release on November 4. The console has sold out at many other retailers so there may not be many more opportunities to get one before the end of the year if you like the limited edition design.View Deal
Nintendo Switch | Pokémon Shining Pearl: £299.98 £259.99 at Argos
Save £39.99 – Fancy a Pokémon game with your console? Here’s the best value Nintendo Switch bundle with the Pokémon Shining Pearl remake for the console. The Switch is usually priced at £259, so when bought in this bundle you effectively get the game for free. A couple of other options are available, too, including Bravely Default 2 and No More Heroes 3.View Deal
Nintendo Switch OLED | Pokémon Snap: £349.98 £314.99 at Argos
Save £39.99 – Fancy the newer Nintendo Switch OLED instead? You can also get a similar deal to the one on the standard Switch at Argos. This one includes a Nintendo Switch OLED plus one game of your choice for £5. We’ve highlighted Pokémon Snap again as it’s likely to be the most popular option. However, you can also choose from Metroid Dread or Bravely Default 2.View Deal
Nintendo Switch | Nintendo Switch Sports: £299.99 £289 at Currys
Save £10 – Nintendo Switch Sports only a short while ago and you can still get it for half price when you buy a Switch console at Currys.

Nintendo Switch OLED | Minecraft: £329 £309 at Currys
Save £20 – Over six months from launch and we’ve finally seen some better Nintendo Switch OLED bundles. This one is fairly standard but does include a copy of Minecraft for free with the console. Mojang’s massive block-based builder and exploration game is a good way to get started on your new console.View Deal
Nintendo Switch (Neon): £259.99 £249 at Amazon
Save £10 – After a couple of weeks at just £229, the Nintendo Switch is back up to a price much closer to its RRP this week. You can still get a cheeky £10 saving right now on the Neon version at Amazon. Not bad.View Deal
Nintendo Switch bundles: our buying advice
Nintendo Switch bundles: how to spot a good deal
Just because Nintendo Switch bundles are cheap might not mean they are good deals. Many retailers often include cheaper games with their Nintendo Switch bundles and still charge standard price. Games readily available for $20 – $30 can sneak their way into the premium-priced deals, lowering the overall value of the offering.
In this case, it’s worth picking up a Nintendo Switch bundle with a full $60 game and grabbing the cheaper title separately if you’re desperate to play it. For this reason, it’s always worth double-checking the going price of the bundled game you’re picking up against the overall cost to make sure you’re getting a good deal. Nintendo Switch sales outside of busy shopping periods (Black Friday or the holidays) are more likely to try this tactic.
The best games in a Nintendo Switch bundle
As mentioned above, first-party releases are the games you’ll want to look for to get the best Nintendo Switch bundle deals. These games have been developed and produced by Nintendo themselves, so that’s the likes of Mario Kart, Mario Party, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Metroid, Pokémon and so on.
As these titles do not usually fall much below their usual price (even years after launch), your best option to get them for cheap is as part of a Nintendo Switch bundle. We’ve seen games effectively receive discounts of up to 50% when bought as part of a bundle.
When to shop for Nintendo Switch deals
The best Nintendo Switch deals are usually found around the holiday period. You’ll find the year’s biggest games tend to release between October and December, which gives bundles a higher value when these titles are included at a discount price. However, a new Nintendo Switch bundle generally pops up along with any big first-party release. We’ll be looking out for any featuring Pokémon Scarlet and Violet now that it’s launched.

Nintendo Switch Lite
The Nintendo Switch Lite was released at just $199.99/£199.99 in 2019. That’s $100/£80 less than the original Switch console. If you want to play games on the TV as well, you should go for the standard Nintendo Switch instead, as the Lite is only playable in handheld mode.
The Nintendo Switch Lite comes in multiple colur options. You can pick one up now in turquoise, gray, yellow, or coral pink, as well as a special Pokemon Zacian & Zamazenta Edition. We have a larger hub dedicated to all the best Nintendo Switch Lite bundles if you want to check it out in more detail.
Nintendo Switch game deals
Looking for something to play? Some of the latest Nintendo Switch bundles might not offer the game you want to get into first. If not, use this price comparison chart below to find the cheapest Switch titles around, or head to our larger guide to find even more cheap Nintendo Switch games. Remember, to play online multiplayer and get other benefits like free games, you’ll want to pick up a Nintendo Switch Online subscription deal as well.
If you’re looking for more multiplayer options, you might want to check out the latest Joy-Con deals. These controllers come in $10 more expensive than the Pro Controller (more on that below), but you do get two separate controllers to expand your options. Nintendo Switch deals rarely include these controllers in their bundles as well, so it’s not worth holding out for a mega-bundle.
Or maybe you just fancy some different colors for your own use – the Neon Red / Blue Joy-Con pack offers opposing colors to the ones the console ships with, for example (left red and right blue). Check out the latest prices below, or shop the latest cheap Joy-Con deals going on right now.
Nintendo Switch Pro Controller deals
You won’t actually need a Nintendo Switch Pro controller to play any games, so don’t feel pressured into buying one. The Nintendo Switch Pro controller is a more traditional-style pad and launched alongside the Nintendo Switch. Prices aren’t cheap, though, starting around $69.99/£64.99. Nintendo Switch bundles have offered the Pro Controller in the past, but these are rare – and often higher value bundles setting you back a bit more cash – so we wouldn’t recommend waiting for them. Check out more Nintendo Switch Pro Controller deals in our dedicated guide.
Do I need to buy extra controllers for multiplayer on Nintendo Switch?
Possibly not! Remember how the Joy-Con controller splits in two? Turn them sideways and you get two basic controllers, each with its own analog stick and face buttons – the d-pad acts as face functions on the left controller. We’ve seen 2K’s NBA series, Snipper Clips, FIFA 19, and Mario Kart being used this way for local multiplayer in both docked and tablet modes. So you get multiplayer functionality straight out of the box with no additional purchase required.
However, if you want to play four-player games, then you’re going to need to invest in an extra pair of Joy-Con controllers or some Pro controllers. We’d buy the Joy-Con as a pair (see our comparison chart above) as you’ll save a bit of cash over buying them separately. Better yet, if your friends own a Switch, ask them to bring their controllers to the party!
Nintendo Switch bundles rarely offer extra controllers at the standard price, as these are particularly pricey gamepads. However, retailers sometimes include a Pro Controller in their Nintendo Switch sales with a slightly higher price tag.
Nintendo Switch MicroSD card deals
With only 32GB of internal storage, you’ll be wanting to pick up a cheap memory card or two for your new Nintendo Switch for any digital purchases or the inevitable game-fixing patches. Don’t fret, though, they’re actually surprisingly cheap, with even 64GB ones coming in at under £20/$25.
What memory cards does the Nintendo Switch need? Those will be Micro SD cards, also known as, depending on their size, MicroSDHC (up to 32GB) or MicroSDXC (up to a huge 2TB soon). Nintendo also has its own branded cards, but you’ll be paying more just for a label. So, for now, we’d take a look at this range of cheap MicroSDXC Nintendo Switch-friendly cards.
