With the PS4 and Xbox One now somewhat retired to make way for the next generation of home consoles, the Nintendo Switch is a good gaming alternative that remains a must-buy for many players. Picking one up outside of a bundle can be costly, but if you're in the market for a new phone as well as wanting to pick up Nintendo's latest piece of hardware, you're in luck. A variety of different online mobile retailers are currently offering the Switch for free when you pick up a new phone contract. In this guide, we'll break down where you can get your hands on such a deal.
The Switch Lite, the newest revision of the console, typically retails for £199, while the 'full' Switch has an RRP of £279, to give you an idea of some of the fantastic deals that are available right now.
