Various console bundles, Nintendo Switch games and accessories were featured in the 2021 Prime Day sale, and while there weren't any significant discounts due to the absence of Nintendo Switch Pro (or whatever it actually ends up being named) news at this year's Nintendo E3 direct, Prime Day 2021 provided an opportunity to grab a console bundle below the RRP.
If you're interested in looking back at some of the other highlights from this year's Prime Day sale, you can check out the Amazon Prime Day 2021 deals hub page for other consoles and even more tech. Meanwhile, if you missed out on some of the best deals, we'd recommend giving Jelly Deals a follow on Twitter so it doesn't happen again when Black Friday rolls around!
Prime Day Switch console deals
Prime Day Switch games deals
This year's sale was pretty similar to Prime Day 2020, with the Nintendo Switch Neon Red/Neon Blue with Ring Fit Adventure bundle reappearing at £314.99. It was the Neon console that featured in all of the best deals. You could bundle it with Pokemon Snap for £309.99 or Just Dance 2021 for £284.99. The best of the bunch, though, was the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe bundle for £284.99.
The Animal Crossing: New Horizons Nintendo Switch console got a restock in the US, but as far as deals are concerned, there was nothing worth shouting about! The best deal was probably the Nintendo Switch Lite with a 128GB MicroSDCX memory card for $199.99.
UK deals hunters once again got the rough end of the stick with Nintendo Switch software deals. Immortals Fenyx Rising was £21.49, Just Dance 2021 was £23.99, and Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle was £14.99. This isn't the cheapest these titles have been, and the lack of first-party titles on sale was disappointing to say the least.
The same can't be said for those living in the US, who were lucky enough to see discounts on many top first-party Switch games such as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild ($47.88), Fire Emblem Three Houses ($39.48), Luigi's Mansion 3 ($39.48) and Super Mario Odyssey ($39.48). Mario Kart Live Home Circuit was down to $74.99, while third party titles such as Borderlands Legendary Collection ($14.99), Bioshock Infinite: The Complete Edition ($7.99) and X-Com 2 Collection ($14.99) all got deep discounts.
Prime Day Switch accessories deals
Prime Day was yet another opportunity to get a Nintendo Switch SD card at a bargain price. Multiple sizes were discounted giving those with either smaller or bulging Switch libraries a fair deal on a storage upgrade. You could grab the 128GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC for £13.99 ($19.89), 200GB for £21.99, 256GB for £26.99, and the 400GB card for £42.99 ($39.99).
And that's it! We're envious of anyone that lives in the US who managed to grab some decent Switch games for cheap, but we hope all of you used Prime Day as an opportunity to upgrade your Switch's storage space.
