Best Nintendo Switch Cyber Monday Deals 2022

The biggest sales event of the year is upon us, and the top deals continue into Cyber Monday (November 28) and Cyber Week. If the kids – or big kids – are desperate for a Nintendo Switch, now is the best time to find one at a brilliantly low price.

It’s not just the Switch itself that is routinely discounted, but you’ll find discounts across games, accessories and bundles that often include all three. Watch out for deals on the regular Switch, as well as the cheaper Switch Lite and premium Switch OLED.

We all know Cyber Monday deals often sound better than they really are, and not all retailers can be trusted, but over the years we’ve typically found Switch deals to be the exception. Nintendo rarely offers official discounts on its hardware and games, so the savings you find genuinely are the best you’ll get all year. But don’t take our word for it – use tools like PriceSpy or the Amazon-specific CamelCamelCamel to see just how much Switch games and consoles have sold for in the recent past.

Switch discounts: What to look for

Don’t get your hopes up for massive savings on the Switch. Blame the console’s popularity for that – people are willing to pay full-price all year round, so retailers have less incentive to discount it than they might with other products. Quite simply, the stock moves itself.

The Switch OLED is also new enough that really big savings are unlikely, though the older Switch and Switch Lite should pop up more often in sales.

Still, there are discounts around if you know where to look. The consoles themselves won’t get massive reductions – usually not by more than $20/£20 – but a better bet is bundles, which offer the console alongside a game or extra accessories. Switch games can cost $60/£50 or more, so the saving if you buy a bundle can be much more than the discount on the Switch on its own.

And even if you don’t want all of the games in the bundle, you could always sell or trade in those games afterwards. We have some tips on how and where to do that here.

There are plenty of brilliant Switch games available, but our pick of the best include Animal Crossing, Metroid Dread and Super Smash Bros Ultimate, so deals on Switch bundles that include those are among the best. Check out our round-up of the best Nintendo Switch games for more.

For people who already own a Switch, you’ll find some discounts on individual games, too, and we’re collecting a few of those when we find them too.

Accessories are also a great option. The price of extra controllers was one of the big gripes a lot of people had with the console at launch, so we’ve seen offers trying to shift stock of controllers and other accessories including carry cases.

Also, remember that the Switch uses microSD cards for expandable storage and USB-C for power – there are loads of great offers on memory cards and portable power banks, so we’d definitely recommend looking now if you’re thinking of expanding your storage or grabbing a battery pack.

You should also take a look at auction sites like eBay, and second-hand sites like musicMagpie in the UK and Decluttr in the US that sell refurbished tech.
