Nintendo Switch Cyber Monday deals 2022: latest Switch OLED UK offers
Nintendo's hybrid console remains as popular as ever, find out where to get the best Nintendo Switch Cyber Monday deals this week.
If you didn't secure a Nintendo Switch console in the Black Friday sales, don't worry, you haven't missed out; Cyber Monday is here to offer you great savings on the Nintendo Switch family of consoles (that would be the main Switch, the cheaper Lite version, and the fancier OLED model). Your time is here, Nintendo fans!
Cyber Monday is the ultimate sales shopping day. As the name suggests, it's entirely online, with many retailers promoting the biggest price drops today. Unlike Black Friday which focuses on big-ticket items, such as home appliances and holidays, Cyber Monday is the perfect opportunity to save on gadgets, gifts, and electricals.
Of particular note this Cyber Monday is a deal on the Nintendo Switch OLED model that brings it down to its lowest price yet. This deal can be found at a rather unlikely source: ASDA, where you can currently buy the Switch OLED for just £279.
With the recommended retail price for the OLED Switch being £309, that ASDA deal gives you a saving of £30 (or 9.7% if you prefer to know these things as percentages). This is not a saving to be scoffed at! With Switch OLED discounts being very rare, we'll happily take 30 quid off, so feel free to click away to ASDA if you fancy picking up the best version of the Switch for just £279.
If you're looking for the standard model Switch or the portable-only Lite model, or you want to see some other Switch-related deals, keep on reading. We'll run through everything you need to know about shopping for a Switch this Cyber Monday.

What are the best Nintendo Switch deals this Cyber Monday?
Nintendo Switch consoles hold their value very well because of their amazingly long-lived popularity. Having launched at £279.99, the price now of a standard Nintendo Switch is £259.99 – that's right, it's only dropped £20 in five years.
The best deal on the standard Nintendo Switch comes straight from the Nintendo Store. You can now this Nintendo Switch, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and three months of Nintendo Switch Online bundle for £259.99 which is the same price the console is typically on its own, meaning you get the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe game and three months of Nintendo Switch Online for no extra cost.
The newest model is the Nintendo Switch OLED, which was released with a slightly higher price of £309. Until now, it's been very few discounts on the new console, but ASDA has just slashed the Nintendo Switch OLED's price by £30 to £279.

Essentially it's a battle of supply and demand. High demand is keeping Switch prices from being slashed too readily during the seasonal sales, but given the ageing technology, it wouldn't be a complete surprise to see some better deals on Nintendo's hybrid consoles going forward.
Now that Black Friday has arrived, we've seen a few bundles and offers that are well worth considering.
