Free controllers and more.
The Nintendo Switch is one of the hottest items of the 2018 holiday season, and as such, there aren’t many Nintendo Switch deals happening right now. At least, there’s nothing approaching the excellence of the Black Friday Nintendo Switch Mario Kart bundle. That doesn’t mean there aren’t still some great chances to save, though.
We’ve scoured the internet to come up with the best deals on Nintendo Switch consoles and bundles, and if you’re after a new Nintendo Switch, the good news there’s still time to get one before Christmas.
Here are the best deals and sales on new Nintendo Switch bundles and consoles.
Nintendo Switch With Labo Kit and Free Controller
For $339 you can fill up lots of Christmas gift requirements in one easy bundle. Not saying this is strictly a holiday-gift deal, but it’s pretty ideal. If you have kids or nieces or nephews, you can say “Well, the Labo is educational so really this will help them learn,” and then sneak in some Smash or Fortnite with them after assembling the Labo kits. This is a spectacular deal, too.
Nintendo Switch With 2 Free Bonus Controllers Deal
With the release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, there’s a good chance you don’t have enough controllers to support upcoming Smash sessions. Walmart’s $299 Nintendo Switch and controller bundle is a great way to add two more controllers to your stable. You can choose from either the Nintendo Switch Neon Red and Blue or Grey Joy-con bundles and then add your choice of Ematic Nintendo Switch wired or wireless controllers (wireless costs $8 more). The controllers are PC compatible, too, so this is a solid choice.
Nintendo Switch Mario Tennis Aces/1-2 Switch Bundle Deal
This remains one of the best values on a new Nintendo Switch. You get 2 games: Mario Tennis Aces and 1-2 Switch. Mario Tennis Aces is a ton of fun, and 1-2 Switch definitely has its moments. Walmart also offers free 2-day shipping, making this an even better value.
Nintendo Switch Gaming Console with Carrying Case Deal
Walmart has another bundle if you really want a Nintendo Switch and a carrying case to go with it. The Switch controller bundle is a much better deal, but if you don’t want to get two third-party controllers and would rather have a carrying case, consider this option.
Nintendo Switch Console, Case and Stand Bundle Deal
Amazon’s best current Nintendo Switch deal is this carrying case and play stand bundle. You get the Nintendo Switch, AmazonBasics carrying case and AmazonBasics charging stand in one bundle. It’s not certain to make it in time for Christmas: right now it doesn’t come back into stock until December 20.
