The best Nintendo Switch deals for October 2020

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

As stock levels start to return to normal, we're now seeing a lot more Nintendo Switch deals out in the wild. We've gathered the best of the best right here - whether you're looking for the console by itself, a Nintendo Switch bundle or some all-important accessories.

We expect the console to once again be hugely popular over Black Friday and the Christmas period. With that in mind, you may want to hold off on picking up Nintendo Switch until the sales get underway next month. We aren't expecting there to be massive discounts on the console, but you're bound to find a good bundle or two over the Black Friday period.

At least stock has become more regularly available over the last few months. The US is still a little behind, but it's made our job of finding all the best Nintendo Switch deals available to buy a whole lot easier.

Best Nintendo Switch bundle deals US

If you're coming from the US, it's a lot harder to nail down any Nintendo Switch deals right now. We'd suggest you regularly keep an eye on this page or any of the big retailers such as Amazon, GameStop or Walmart. When the Nintendo Switch does pop up in stock at any store it's picked up lightning-fast. For now, you just need to try and get lucky with your timing.

Strangely, the limited edition Animal Crossing console is actually most widely available, right now!

Best Nintendo Switch bundle deals UK

In the UK, your best bet is to try the Nintendo UK Official Store to find the best Nintendo Switch bundles. As a direct supplier of the console, they generally have the best availability and range of options. That said, we've seen the likes of Amazon and Currys PC World also offer up some good Switch deals over the recent months. You'll find our top picks of the bunch below, including consoles with Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and more.

Best Nintendo Switch Lite deals

Even though stock of the original console is becoming more widely available, it's now increasingly hard to find a good Nintendo Switch Lite deal. It seems Nintendo may have prioritised the main console as they looked to get their supply chains back on track. In spite of this, we are starting to see a few Switch Lite bundles pop up - the best of which you can find below.

These are mostly in the UK, where you'll find them at the Official Nintendo UK Store. In the US, any stock that does appear at places like Amazon is vanishing in minutes, so you'll have to snap one up quickly. Other retailers don't appear to be getting any new shipments just yet.

Best Switch game deals

If there's one thing we've seen over the years it's that Nintendo Switch games tend to hold their value extremely well. Nintendo Switch game deals are few and far between, while any discounts that do crop up only take a little off the price. Maybe the best we've seen is up to a third off some major releases such as Breath of the Wild, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Super Mario Odyssey.

Still, these are some essentially Switch games that you'll absolutely want to pick up with your new console. Here are some current deals for the top Switch games you can buy.

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, we've gathered up some of the best Joy-Con deals below.

Do you really need another set, though? For the most part, the Joy-Con pair that comes with a Nintendo Switch is enough for two-player multiplayer games. If you want more friends to play locally on the same console, that's when you'll need to purchase some more. Or, you can buy some more if you'd just rather add some flair to your living room over the dull grey Joy-Cons.

Best Joy-Con grip deals

As much as we all love the Switch, playing with the tiny Joy-Con for an extended period of time can cause some serious cramping. With that in mind, we've added in some the top Joy-Con grip deals for you to peruse should you want to give your hands a break

There's a good selection available - whether you want to upgrade the standard controller grip with charging capabilities, or make your races in Mario Kart 8 feel a little bit more authentic with a racing wheel. There's also the chonky Hori Split Pad Pro, which will give you a full controller experience while in handheld mode. We take a look at many more deals in our guide to the best Nintendo Switch controllers.

Best Nintendo Switch SD card deals

As you start to build up a bigger library of Nintendo Switch games you might find the console's 32GB of internal storage a bit limited. You can save yourself the faff of deleting old games to make space for new ones or any updates with a quick Nintendo Switch SD card purchase. Inexpensive, simple to install and available in a vast range of sizes, we've gathered some of the best offers below. You can also find loads more info in our 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 styluses also has everything else you need to know.

We'll be back to update this page regularly with all the best Nintendo Switch deals. We'll be looking for anything that might beat the Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals and Amazon Prime Day gaming deals that crop up throughout the year.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
