Nintendo Switch Cyber Monday deals: best bundle offers continuing today

The deals keep coming for the Nintendo Switch! Here's our expert pick of the best Nintendo Switch deals and bundles continuing for Cyber Monday 2021.

Black Friday Cyber Monday deals

Black Friday deals continue on the Nintendo Switch this Cyber Monday. So, you can tell your bank account not to rest easier just yet.

The Nintendo Switch is one of the most sought after deals in the world – owing to people still not being able to find a PS5 or Xbox Series X – and there have been some amazing bargains to be found on it already this weekend.

Last year, the Switch console was one of the most googled products for Black Friday globally, so the demand for the device is certainly there, and it still will be for today, Cyber Monday.

The Nintendo Switch OLED was recently released, and our tech experts have found Switch OLED bundles at Very and Currys. That being said, don’t expect anything significant on the newer model, as that was never going to be seeing sizable savings.

The Nintendo Switch, however, is a different story.  The original Neon Red/Blue Switch has popped up in a great deal that also comes with a Mario Kart 8 download and a three month Nintendo Switch online subscription for £259.99 – not bad at all when that is just the price of the console alone. Snap up this deal, which is still going for the moment, at Very, Argos and the Nintendo Store  – you can also get 50% off selected games there.

We are also keeping an eye on the Nintendo Switch Lite this Cyber Monday as the portable-only version of the console has been out long enough now to not miss out on the discounts. The Lite is on offer over at Zavvi for £179.99.

Looking for top savings on games and accessories, as well as the consoles themselves, this Cyber Monday? Well, you have come to the right place, as many of the top Black Friday Switch deals we’ve shared are continuing today.

Before you shop for a Switch this Cyber Monday, it’s worth remembering that the new RRP for the Nintendo Switch is £259.99. This month we’ve spotted various retailers quoting a £20 discount on the old RRP of £279.99, but this isn’t a discount – so stick with us for all of the genuine deals this Cyber Monday.

Offering unparalleled value alongside a truly great game (which will keep you and your pals entertained for hours on end), this deal would be a great way to grab a Nintendo Switch.”

Why we chose it: OLED Switch discounts won’t be huge this year, but finding a console in stock and included in a bundle with games you really want, is a win.

Gaming editor extraordinaire, Rob, was a big fan of this deal. He told us, “What’s not to love in this bundle? The Nintendo Switch OLED is the best version of the Switch. Pokémon Shining Pearl is a long-awaited remake of a widely adored game. And not only does that SanDisk Memory Card boasts 256GB of storage space (which should be plenty for all of your gaming needs), it also comes emblazoned with a cutesy illustration of a Super Star from Mario! Truly, this Nintendo Switch deal is one of the best around.”

Top tips for shopping for a Nintendo Switch this Cyber Monday

The new RRP for the Nintendo Switch is £259.99 (as priced on Nintendo’s own store), so be wary of retailers quoting a £20 discount on the old RRP.

Know the difference between the Nintendo Switch vs Nintendo Switch Lite and which one is best for you.

Decide if you want to pay extra for the OLED model. In our gaming editor, Rob Leane’s Nintendo Switch OLED review, he suggests the OLED is worth it for those who will use the Switch in handheld mode. Yet, if you mostly intend to use your Switch docked, he advises holding onto that extra cash.

Make the most of the Cyber Monday deals for all your Switch accessories. We’re seeing a 60% price drop on this SanDisk 128GB Nintendo Switch memory card, for example.

Nintendo Switch VS Lite VS OLED: which should you buy this Cyber Monday?

The Lite is a slightly cheaper on-the-go model which is more suited to individual play versus the original Switch, which is geared up for multiplayer. The RRP of the Nintendo Switch Lite is £199.99. It’s more compact and designed to be handheld only. In contrast, the Nintendo Switch features three different modes, including handheld, tabletop (when the Joy-Con controllers detach and the screen stands) and TV.

What about games? Nintendo Switch games that feature a handheld mode can be played on both consoles. However, for games that do not support handheld, players can wirelessly connect controllers to the Switch Lite. These will need to be bought separately (along with a Joy-Con Charging Grip).

You can read more in our Nintendo Switch vs Lite guide.

In our gaming editor, Rob Leane’s Nintendo Switch OLED review, he suggests only upgrading an existing Neon Switch if you plan to use the OLED in handheld mode. It’s probably not worth it (and you’re not making the most of that screen) if you mostly intend to use it docked.

Where to buy Nintendo Switch OLED this Cyber Monday

Even when it's docked, you'll feel the benefits of the Nintendo Switch OLED.

The Nintendo Switch OLED has proved extremely popular since it hit the stores in October, but getting hold of it has been a challenge. Stock is starting to come back for it but don’t expect to see any amazing deals on it this Cyber Monday, even if it does.

When do Nintendo Switch Cyber Monday deals end?

Most Cyber Monday Switch deals will end tonight.

Whereas Black Friday runs longer than ever now, it is far more than just one day. Cyber Monday generally just sticks to its day. So the deals for it will, by and large, only be available today, which means you do not have much time to deliberate if you see a deal that is too good to turn down.
