Boxing Day Nintendo Switch Deals Live Blog: The Best After Christmas Switch Deals Live Now
Start the new year with a new console and some fitness with this Nintendo Switch and Just Dance bundle on Amazon for £ 288.10. The page suggests saving over £ 40 for this package, but given that you can get a Switch for £ 259 and Just Dance for around £ 30 right now if you buy them separately, you aren’t saving as much. But it takes the hassle out of searching the Internet for individual items and maybe having to pay more for two deliveries.
You may have noticed that we haven’t talked much about the Nintendo Switch Lite on the blog today. That’s really because we haven’t seen any discounts on the Switch’s little brother yet. Stock has generally been lower on the Lite than on the original Switch, so it makes sense that retailers aren’t in a rush to offload the devices when they receive them. There is stock available, however, if you prefer the more portable, and more affordable Lite.
In the United States, you can find the crisp-looking metallic gray Switch Lite Dialga & Palkia Edition for $ 199 on the Nintendo Store and one GameStop.
In UK you can get the Switch Lite with Animal Crossing: New Horizons and 3 months of Nintendo Switch Online for £ 239.99 at Nintendo and at Very. Nintendo also offers this pack with the added Mario Kart 8 and a case for £ 308.99. Bundles aren’t advertised as specials, but they’re definitely great prices. You can get the Switch Lite alone for £ 199 at Currys.
As usual, some of the best options for getting a Nintendo Switch are in bundles, so here’s a roundup of the best bundles we’re seeing right on either side of the Atlantic this Boxing Day.
In the United States, the Nintendo Store has the Switch with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and 3 months Nintendo Switch individual online subscription for $ 299. And if you’re looking for that OLED model that we mentioned below, GameStop has the console with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and a screen protector and case for $ 429.97. You can opt for Terror Metroid instead of Mario Kart 8 for the same price.
In the UK there are Switch plans to suit all tastes and interests. Make a New Year’s resolution to get in shape? Then there is Nintendo Switch Ring Fit Adventure Set for £ 309.99 in the Nintendo Store. With real gameplay involved, it’s certainly best to take the exercise classes on YouTube.

£ 386.98 £ 369 and with Minecraft and the memory card for £ 369.98 £ 349.
Nintendo unveiled the Switch OLED version in October, and the upgraded console has proven to be very hard to come by. Considering the specs, you can see why everyone is keen to get their hands on it. The biggest improvement is of course the screen, with the OLED panel providing better color accuracy, higher contrast, and a sharper image thanks to cooler white input. The screen is also slightly larger at 7 inches instead of 6.2 inches. But the OLED version of the Switch also has a stronger kickstand, double the storage capacity, and slightly better audio performance.
While you might think the Christmas rush may have left the stock even lower than before, this is probably the first time we’ve seen multiple options for buying the OLED Switch online on both sides of the Atlantic. In the UK you can buy the console on its own for £ 309.99 at Nintendo but the best deals come through bundles. Metroid Dread is a game that really takes advantage of the improved OLED display, and Very a Nintendo Switch OLED with Metroid Dread for £ 349.99, a saving of £ 10.
Currys also saves money on OLED bundles: you can get the OLED Switch with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and a SanDisk Switch 256 GB memory card for
£ 386.98 £ 369 or get the OLED Switch with Minecraft and a 256 GB memory card for £ 369.98 £ 349.

The stock is lower on the neon blue / red version, but you can order it on GameStop for collection in store. As for the bundles, GameStop has the OLED with screen protector and case and Metroid Dread for $ 429.97.

You have brand new Nintendo titles for the console, such as Metroid Dread released in October, you have Nintendo classics, from Mario to Zelda and also classics from other consoles.
But there is also a huge range of indie games to explore, with some real gems to discover. You can normally be reluctant to risk buying an indie game if you haven’t heard of it, but until December 31, the Nintendo Online Store is having a massive sale with up to 75% off indie games for the Switch in the US, offering an excellent opportunity to discover a whole universe of original games for very little money.
Highlights include savings on RPG adventure Hades, reduced from $ 24.99 to $ 16.24, the scary story of ghosts OXENFREE, reduced from $ 9.99 to only $ 1.99, and retro arcade action from the 90s with Streets of Rage 4 for
$ 24.99 $ 14.99.
In the United States, the Nintendo Switch has been so difficult to find in recent months that many people will be happy to find the console at the standard retail price, not inflated by resellers. Fortunately, Amazon currently has stocks on both the original Nintendo Switch at $ 299 and the Nintendo Switch OLED at $ 349.99. You can also find the Animal Crossing Edition of the original Switch, also for $ 299.
Seeing a console on sale at standard retail wouldn’t normally be something to cry about, but the stock is so low in the US that finding the Switch without markup of any kind almost feels like a deal, especially for that elusive one. OLED model (pictured above), which we’ve hardly seen online in the US since its first release in early October.
And if you’re looking for an SD card to store games, you might even save a little money. Amazon has the Nintendo Switch with SanDisk SDXC 128GB Card for $ 320.98, a savings of $ 14. The Switch Edition SDXC card with its cute mushroom-shaped design normally costs £ 34.99. Chances are these will sell out pretty quickly, so if you want to start 2022 with Nintendo’s super fun handheld console, we suggest you buy one.
Kicking off today is this excellent package from Very, which combines a Nintendo Switch console with three super popular games – Animal Crossing New Horizon, Minecraft and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – all for £ 359.99. Buying these items separately would cost you at least £ 20 more, so this is a real savings on some of the most wanted products in the Switch world.
