Nintendo Switch vs Nintendo Switch Lite

Both the original Nintendo Switch and the Switch Lite have been hard to find online as they continue to explode in popularity, but we’ve been keeping an eye on the best deals for Switch consoles, games, and accessories.
We’ll update this list regularly with the top Nintendo Switch deals as new discounts are announced.
Right now, “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition” is on sale for $39.99, which is $20 off its regular price.
Target is also offering a special buy two, get one free promotion on a large assortment of Switch games.

The Nintendo Switch has been the best-selling video game console on the planet since its release in March 2017, and it’s become one of the hottest products of 2020 as people look for ways to entertain themselves during the coronavirus pandemic.

Nintendo Switch sales doubled in March 2020 compared to March 2019, and even surpassed the number of consoles sold during the Switch’s first month in March 2017, according to data from the NPD Group. 

Nintendo’s $300 hybrid console offers many of the most popular games on the market in a portable package, with the option to connect the Switch to a larger television or home entertainment system. The $200 Switch Lite is smaller and can’t connect to your TV, but it’s still a popular pick for parents who want an affordable alternative to the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, and gamers who want a second console.

Switch exclusive titles include iconic Nintendo franchises like “Super Mario,” “Pokémon” and “The Legend of Zelda.” The latest Nintendo exclusive, “Animal Crossing: New Horizons,” was the best-selling game of March 2020 and is already the top selling game in the series.

Below, we’ve collected the best deals on Nintendo Switch consoles, exclusive games, and accessories. These discounts should all come in handy whether you’re looking to buy a Switch for the first time, building your library of games, or trying to find the cheapest price on a Switch peripheral.

Best deals on Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite consoles

The Nintendo Switch can be connected to a TV for high-definition gameplay, or taken on-the-go as a portable console. Furthermore, the Switch’s controls can be separated from the console and used as two separate controllers called Joy-Cons. Unfortunately, stock for the standard Switch remains low at many retailers. With that in mind, some of the below products might not currently be available for shipment. We’ll update this section with more Switch purchase options and deals as stores start adding more inventory.

Meanwhile, the Nintendo Switch Lite is a handheld-only version of the console that lacks the original Switch’s removable controllers and ability to connect to a larger television. The Switch Lite appeals to gamers who may already own a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One and want to play games with a similar level of quality while they’re traveling. Parents may also be more willing to invest in a handheld console at a lower price point when introducing their children to gaming.

The Nintendo Switch Lite comes in four colors (coral, turquoise, grey and yellow). There haven’t been many deals that drop the Switch Lite’s price below its standard retail price of $199.99, but a refurbished model is currently available for a $5 discount at Best Buy.

Best deals on Nintendo Switch controllers

Though the Switch’s Joy-Cons give players access to two controllers at all times, some gamers prefer the Nintendo Switch Pro controller, which more closely resembles a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One controller.

Nintendo also sells spare Joy-Cons with multiple color options for Switch owners who want to add some additional flair and an extra set of motion controllers for multiplayer games. However, Joy-Cons have been out of stock at most major retailers amid the coronavirus pandemic, with online stores charging prices well above their normal price of $79.99.

Though there are no current discounts available on brand-new Nintendo first-party controllers, Best Buy is selling refurbished Pro Controllers for $62.99. Joy-Cons are also in stock right now for their regular price at GameStop. 

Geek Squad Refurbished Nintendo Switch Pro Controller, $62.99 ($69.99 new) at Best Buy [You save $7 buying refurbished]
PowerA Wireless GameCube Style Controller (Purple), $36.99 (originally $49.99) at Amazon [You save $13]
