Nintendo Switch Prime Day deals live blog: OLED, Switch and Lite at the lowest prices

I’ll admit defeat for the time being. I’m not seeing any major US discounts from Amazon right now worth writing home about. But! I have managed to find a pretty good price on the official Nintendo Switch Pro controller. Amazon lists the Pro pad for $69.99, but right now you can pick it up from Walmart for a mere $38.54 (opens in new tab). I love this controller: it’s a really nice alternative to the Joy-Cons and feels really nice to use when the console is in TV mode. Not a bad find, if I do say so myself.

Gotta catch ’em all! Here’s a hot Prime exclusive for you Pokemon fans: right now Prime members can pre-order Pokemon Scarlet with the shiny new Neon Switch OLED for £316.95. (opens in new tab) Originally priced at £359.98, this deal will save you over £40 for a game that isn’t even out yet! Wowzah! Saying that though, be aware the game doesn’t come out until the end of November so you’ll have to be patient…

The very first deal we reported on in this live blog is still active! There’s still time to grab the OG neon red and blue Nintendo Switch console for £249 (opens in new tab) down from the RRP of £299.99. A £50 saving is impressive in Nintendo terms, so I’m surprised this deal is still going. With the approach of Christmas, Nintendo Switches are always incredibly popular so finding good deals between now and December can be tricky. So if you’ve been considering grabbing the console ahead of the seasonal period, now’s the perfect time.

The cheapest Switch deal I seem to be seeing right now is this Nintendo Switch OLED bundle that includes a digital code for Sports Party. Originally going for £323.98, the new £298.95 price tag will save you £25. I’ll be honest: I’ve never actually heard of Sports Party, but considering this bundle is cheaper than buying just the Switch OLED at RRP we’re not going to complain about having a free game thrown into the mix (even if it is just a digital download code).

Good morning everyone! I’m primed (hah) and ready for hopefully some shiny new deals today in the last day of the Amazon Early Access Sale. Yesterday saw a lot of games and accessories drop in price with a few consoles thrown in, so let’s see what goodies we can grab today. 


Switch bundle deal

We’re coming to the end of the first day of the 48-hour Prime Early Access Sale, and your best options for a saving on a console are through bundles, either with games or with memory cards.

For the original switch, we’re tempted by a bundle offer that gets you the Nintendo Switch with Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for $339.98 – a saving of $20 (opens in new tab). You can also get the Switch with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for $349.93, saving $10 (opens in new tab) on what it would cost to buy the console and the game at full price.  

For the super portable Switch Lite, the best deal is the console bundled with a SanDisk microSDXC card for $218.49, a reduction of $16.49. (opens in new tab)

And the Switch OLED? We’re sorry to say Amazon has no discounts on the newest console in the US, but it does have the Switch OLED in stock for $349.99 (opens in new tab) – the recommended retail price. 

We’ll be here again tomorrow with more updates on the best Prime Day Nintendo Switch deals during Day 2 of the sale, so stay tuned.

Fortunately, a lone microSDXC isn’t the only Nintendo Switch Prime Day deal that we’re seeing in the US (although it is the only members-only deal so far).

If you’re looking for games and accessories for Nintendo Switch, there are a few small but welcome savings. Amazon has $10 off Ring Fit Adventure – now $69.88 (opens in new tab) (this is one of those strange ones where you have to add the product to your cart before it will let you see the price). It’s a novel game that will have you running and high-kneeing it through dozens of levels using the Ring-Con and Leg Strap accessories (yes, you’ll look ridiculous, but it’s a fun way to get some exercise).

As for more traditional games, Amazon has a third off the price on a range of Nintendo Switch games (opens in new tab), and 37% off a pairing of Super Mario Odyssey and Super Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – reduced from $119.98 to $74.99 (opens in new tab). That’s a massive saving of $44.99 on two digital download codes.


SanDisk Switch card

Over in the US, the biggest Nintendo Switch Prime Day deal so far is… 

…yes, it’s also a microSDXC card, like we’ve seen in the UK. But if you’ve splashed out full-price, or almost full price for a console, you don’t want to have to spend through the nose to be able to take it up to a more reasonable storage capacity to ensure you have enough room for plenty of games, screenshots and video captures.

You should have no problems with space or speed with this zippy Animal Crossing-themed SanDisk 512GB card, which is reduced from an astronomical $129.99 to the Prime deal price of $67.99 – a saving of $62 (opens in new tab).

What’s the difference between a Nintendo-approved card and a regular microSDXC card? As well as the cute design, it’s actually more about the warranty, since regular cards often aren’t covered for devices in which the card is a primary drive.


Switch OLED deal

Hold up, because a rival UK retailer has just beaten Amazon’s best Nintendo Switch Prime Day deal in the UK. If you’re still awake, now’s your chance to save an extra few pounds!

As we mentioned in the last post, Amazon has a small discount on the Nintendo Switch OLED, but Very’s just beaten that saving by three quid. Right now you can save £20 on the Nintendo Switch OLED at Very – now just £289 (opens in new tab). And that deal’s available in both colours. The previous link will take you to the console in red/blue, but the same saving is also available on the white Switch OLED (opens in new tab).

We’re inching towards the end of the first day of Amazon’s debut Prime Early Access sale in the UK, so here’s a recap of where the best Switch deals stand. It should be no surprise that there are no massive Prime Day Nintendo Switch deals, but there are savings to be had.

Small savings on the newest console, the Nintendo Switch OLED have been coming and going, but right now you can save £18 on the Switch OLED in red/blue – now £292.99 (opens in new tab). However, for our money, it makes more sense to go for a Switch OLED bundle deal with Pokémon Arceus, reduced by £60.98 from £359.98 to Just £299 (opens in new tab), only a few pounds more than the deal on the console alone.

There’s also a small £15 saving to be had on the Nintendo Switch Lite in yellow, reduced from £199.99 to £184.99 (opens in new tab). As for the original Switch console, it’s selling on Amazon at the full £249 (opens in new tab). Amazon is claiming that this is a 17% discount, but we’re not sure where it’s got its numbers from because this is the RRP from Nintendo.

And the biggest Prime Day Nintendo Switch deal in the UK? Don’t get too excited; it’s a microSDXC card. But it’s a SanDisk microSDXC card with Switch branding (opens in new tab) and approval, reduced by a whopping 63% from a ludicrous £40.99 to a much more reasonable £14.99 (not that unlike the deals on consoles, this one’s for Prime members only).

We don’t know if it was a glitch in the system or our eyes crossing from all the deals but the OLED deal is BACK IN THE UK! Grab yourself a Switch OLED for a record-low price of £292.99 and enjoy it (opens in new tab). Oh! And you can get it in red/blue or white.

I’m devastated to report that the standout Switch OLED deal that brought the console down to the lowest price ever has sold out. RIP, right? But rising from the ashes of that deal is a bundle deal to dream about. 

The Switch OLED and Pokémon Arceus have been bundled together in a delightful package that will set you back just £299, down from the usual combined price of £359.98 (opens in new tab). That’s £60.98 off, in case you needed it spelled out. And a cheaper deal than the Switch OLED’s usual RRP. Do it now before it sells out, too.

If you fancy a more compact version of the popular Nintendo console, you can now grab the Yellow Switch Lite for £185 down from £199.99, saving you £14.99 (opens in new tab). And the best part is this is yet another deal that you don’t even need to be a Prime member to redeem. Go go go!

Another stellar UK deal coming in hot! Prime members can grab the shiny new Switch OLED bundled with the even newer Splatoon 3 for £316 instead of the usual £359.98. (opens in new tab)  With a £43.98 discount, this is a hot deal when it comes to Switch savings. I’m sorry I ever doubted you, Nintendo.

Do you like playing games, and lots of them? Do you keep having to delete other games to make more room for them? Do you like cute mushrooms? Then check out this impressive £26 saving taking the SanDisk 128GB Micro SD card down from £40.99 to just £14.99. (opens in new tab) Similar to the US deal I shared earlier, Prime members can save 63-per cent on this nifty little memory card to boost their console’s storage. It’s officially licensed and has a fun guy on it. What’s not to like.

We’ve got a truly magical deal for you here: Prime members can currently grab the Lego Harry Potter collection for Nintendo Switch for under half price (opens in new tab). Originally selling for £43.99, the games are now only £16.79. This 52-per cent saving is one of the best game deals I’ve seen so far today, especially with a franchise as popular as Lego.

Purr-fect.

WE’VE GOT ONE, GAMERS! We’ve found an actual deal that includes a console! Huzzah! This bundle includes the Nintendo Switch and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild game (opens in new tab). Originally priced at $359.98, this bundle is listed for $339.98 which saves you a nifty $20: and the best part is you don’t even need to be a Prime member to claim this deal. Save money and then save Hyrule all in one swoop.

If you want to enjoy Nintendo’s popular multiplayer games then extra Joy-Cons are a must, but they can be pretty pricey.

Considering these neat little controllers usually retail at £74.99, this 21% saving is perfect for anyone who’s been thinking about grabbing a pair.

Kicking our Nintendo Switch live blog off is this deal on Amazon UK. Now, the original Nintendo Switch retails for £259, and this offer knocks a tenner off – now £249 (opens in new tab). 

Now, you might be wondering why on earth we are telling you about a £10 saving – seems a bit rubbish, right? In actual fact, it’s incredibly rare to see any money off the console alone, so this is very pleasant surprise. Nintendo consoles hold their value, so, a bit like Apple devices, any saving is not to be sniffed at.
