Prime Day Nintendo Switch deals: FAQs

What to expect from Prime Day Nintendo Switch deals 2022

  • Nintendo Switch OLED: $349 $335 / £309 £289 
  • Nintendo Switch: $299 $259 / £259.99 £239.99 
  • Nintendo Switch Lite: expect bundles in the US / £199.99 £179.99 

There was a lot going on in the world of Nintendo last year, which bodes well for some particularly strong Prime Day Nintendo Switch deals in 2022. The new OLED model is firmly planted on the shelves now after months of supply issues, and the standard edition is poised for some excellent bundle offers (and potentially even straight discounts as well). 

In fact, the only console we have some questions about is the Nintendo Switch Lite. With waning stock in the first months of the year, this cheaper handheld-only model is looking is a little thin on the ground already. That said, discounts are still popping up in both the US and UK so if supply does hold out, there will be plenty to choose from here as well.

The standard edition Nintendo Switch console dropped down to just $259 for the first time in May. That fills us with far more confidence that we’re going to see some more straight price drops on this device during Prime Day Nintendo Switch deals – and likely some better value bundle deals as well. 

Not only that, but thanks to a permanent price drop at the end of last year, the Switch has a new RRP of £259.99 in the UK. We’ve already seen retailers kicking things even further down the price chain across the pond, but never at Amazon. That means we’re expecting a conservative £239.99 sales price come the summer, but it’s well worth checking in with smaller sites like The Game Collection and Base for more discounts.

We could also see the return of the Mario Kart 8 bundle that sits pride of place during Black Friday Nintendo Switch deals, and there’s far more wiggle room for more games to get involved here as well. We don’t see too many bundles day to day in the US, so Prime Day Nintendo Switch deals could be your first port of call.

Nintendo Switch OLED

If you’re after the latest and greatest console, it’s worth noting that we’ve already seen as much as $20 / £20 off the Nintendo Switch OLED in 2022 alone. Those offers came from Walmart in the US and a range of retailers in the UK (though AO held out the longest at this price). Amazon itself hasn’t offered too much cash off the device (aside from a fairly permanent £5 discount in the UK), but if other retailers take the leap on the day itself, we could see some price match wars occurring here. 

That still feels quite optimistic – the truth is we’re just not used to seeing such early savings on a Nintendo console, or any price drops at all. We’re tentatively hoping for a return to that $20 / £20 price cut, but if there’s no discounts at all we’ll still likely see bundle offers rolling in.

Those bundles could include latest releases – Nintendo Switch Sports, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, and Pokemon Legends: Arceus are all waiting in the wings for inclusion here. However, some of the best value options could be on old favorites – we’ve seen bundles including Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe most recently in the US. 

Nintendo Switch Lite

At a very optimistic push, we could see the Nintendo Switch Lite shave $10 off its price tag in the US during Prime Day. It wouldn’t be the first time the cheaper handheld-only console has taken a price cut at Amazon, and in fact we saw this $189.99 sales price hit the shelves earlier this month. While stock hasn’t been too healthy in the first few months of 2022, we are starting to see these consoles back on the shelves now, so keep an eye out for further discounts.

Over in the UK, though, the cheaper model is often available at between £180 and £190, so if Amazon is to push the boat out with its Prime Day Nintendo Switch deals, we could see a slightly lower price point of £179.99. Of course, you can always count on some bundle offers in the UK – though we would steer clear of cheaper games like Rayman Legends, Minecraft, and Spyro Reignited Trilogy in favor of first party titles for the best value. 

Of course, if you already own a console we’re expecting to see some solid discounts on the best Nintendo Switch accessories in line with last year’s offers – though we may be restricted to third party alternatives again. However, considering some of the best Nintendo Switch controllers and Nintendo Switch cases come from a range of different brands there will still be some quality picks on the shelves.
