It's been six years since Nintendo released its handheld console, the Nintendo Switch, in 2017.

When the world locked down in 2020, the console became hugely popular among gamers who had long been fans of Nintendo — but also with a lot of people newly stuck at home and looking for entertainment.

There are three models of the console to choose from — the original Nintendo Switch, the Nintendo Switch OLED and the Nintendo Switch Lite.

All three have slightly different functions and also come at different price points. If you're struggling to choose between the different models, we've written an article with the pros and cons of the Nintendo Switch vs Lite.

With the latest Nintendo Switch model, the OLED, being released nearly three years ago, we're beginning to see discounts across different consoles. Some are just on the consoles themselves, but as you're likely to also buy some games or accessories either when you buy a Nintendo Switch or soon after, it makes sense to buy these in a bundle with the console - and this is where we're seeing some of the greatest savings.

There are also options to make savings by buying refurbished or pre-owned models, which is a great way to act more sustainably and reduce your carbon footprint, as well as saving a bit of cash.

The cheapest you will currently find standalone consoles is £181.99 for the Nintendo Switch Lite, £259 for the standard Nintendo Switch and £256.99 for the newest Nintendo Switch OLED.
