Best Nintendo Switch deals January 2022

The best deals on Nintendo Switch, Nintendo Switch Lite, games and more.

Whether you're looking for the latest deals on Nintendo Switch, Nintendo Switch Lite and Nintendo Switch OLED consoles or you're trying to save money on the best-selling titles, you'll find all of the best Nintendo Switch deals right here.

Below, you'll find our picks for the top Nintendo Switch bundles right now, as well as offers on the Switch Lite and Switch OLED. If you're not already familiar with the key differences between the three consoles, the Switch Lite is a hand-held only version of the Nintendo Switch, while the Nintendo Switch OLED comes with an improved OLED screen and other minor enhancements.

If you've already got a Switch console (or two) at home, there's a vast number of bargains to be found on great games, accessories and more, including Nintendo Switch memory cards to expand the storage space on your console and Nintendo Switch Online subscriptions, which now include access to a decent selection of Nintendo 64 and Sega Mega Drive games if you opt for the premium tier service.

A few Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite deals are already starting to come down in price and these might get even better with time now that the Switch OLED has been released, though deals may be in shorter supply after plenty were snapped up last month.

Best Nintendo Switch bundle deals UK

In the UK, a good idea is to try the Nintendo Store to build your own best Nintendo Switch bundle deal. As a direct supplier of the console, they generally have the best availability and range of options. All three versions of the console are currently in stock

Elsewhere, we've seen the likes of Amazon and Currys offer up some good Switch deals over the recent months. GAME has some decent Nintendo Switch bundles too, where you can get Pikmin 3: Deluxe or Paper Mario: The Origami King bundled with a new Switch OLED or the original Switch model for just £10 on top.

Best Nintendo Switch bundle deals US

If you're here from the US, we're afraid to say that most Switch stock has been cleaned out, but we'll let you know if any restocks happen this month.

Fortunately, Walmart has just launched an exclusive Christmas console bundle, which includes a carrying case and a 12-month Switch Online membership. We'd also recommend checking Amazon and GameStop as stock may also return this month. GameStop does still have the Animal Crossing limited edition console in stock (somehow!)

Best Nintendo Switch Lite deals

best_nintendo_switch_lite_bundles

While the original Nintendo Switch and the latest Nintendo Switch OLED consoles are available pretty much everywhere, Nintendo Switch Lite consoles are becoming increasingly harder to find. At the time of writing, all major games retailers are completely out of stock, including My Nintendo Store UK. Any Switch Lite consoles that are available for sale are selling above the console's RRP.

As such, we'd recommend grabbing an original Nintendo Switch model or the latest OLED console instead, especially as one of the Nintendo Switch Lite's biggest selling points was its cheaper price. Alternatively, you can always grab a pre-owned console from GAME, CEX or other retailers such as GameStop in the US - just make sure you're happy with the condition of the console before purchasing.

Best Nintendo Switch OLED deals

The Nintendo Switch OLED has seen some surprising good deal bundles despite only launching on 8th October 2021. Stock has returned to multiple retailers in the UK, although it still remains scarce in the US. We recommend keeping an eye on the Jelly Deals Twitter for updates on when new stock is live.

Best Nintendo Switch game deals

Usually, it's hard to find first-party Nintendo Switch games for any less than their RRP, but the last couple of months has seen some great savings on some of the Nintendo Switch's best-selling titles, some of which are available from £35.

The US has got some fantastic deals too, particularly at GameStop where you can save anywhere from 25 to 40 percent off on a range of first-party titles, including Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey.

We've gathered up offers on all the best Nintendo Switch games we can find this month. These are some essential Switch games that you'll absolutely want to pick up with your new console.

You might also want to visit the Nintendo eShop which regularly holds sales on various digital games from major releases to small indie gems. There's a lot to wade through but if you're sorting from the lowest you can even get some stone-cold indie classics for as little as a quid!

For those of you in the US, check out these similar deals.

Best Joy-Con deals

The Nintendo Switch Joy-Con are an expensive bit of kit and are rarely discounted - especially when it comes to some of the limited editions or unique colour combinations. That said, you can sometimes find some money off here and there. With that in mind, if you're after more Joy-Con, we've gathered up some of the best Joy-Con deals below.

For the most part, the Joy-Con pair that comes with a Nintendo Switch is enough for two-player multiplayer games, but if you want more friends to play locally on the same console on games like Mario Party Superstars or Mario Kart 8, you're gonna need another Joy-Con pair. Alternatively, if you regretted not getting the neon Switch and want to change up your dull grey Joy-Con, you can always pick these up separately.

Best Nintendo Switch SD card deals

If you find yourself more compelled to download games from the eShop for convenience, your digital library is going to be rather limited by the console's 32GB of internal storage, and even the OLED model's 64GB won't last for long. Instead of constantly deleting and reinstalling games, it pays to have a MicroSD card. These come in a variety of sizes and have been getting cheaper year on year. You can even get hold of a 1TB these days! They'd surely make for a nice gift too.

We've gathered some of the best offers below. You can also find loads more info in Digital Foundry's guide to the best Nintendo Switch SD cards.

Best Nintendo Switch stylus

For the most part, you probably won't need a Nintendo Switch stylus. However, there are a couple of games that benefit greatly from their increased accuracy over one of your digits. So, if you find yourself spending a lot of time designing levels on Super Mario Maker 2 or testing your grey matter on Brain Training then you'll want to pick up one of these. For a more in-depth look, our guide to the best Nintendo Switch stylus at Jelly Deals has everything else you need to know.

We'll be back to update this page regularly with all the best Nintendo Switch deals that pop up. You can also check out our gifts for gamers guide or pop to Jelly Deals for the best Nintendo Switch power banks and give us a follow over at our Jelly Deals Twitter page.
