Find the best value Nintendo Switch bundle
Above, you’ll find hundreds of different Nintendo Switch deals, both on their own and bundled with accessories and games. But how can you ensure you’re getting the absolute best value on your Nintendo Switch bundle? Here’s our top tips:
Be patient – there’s no denying that there are good and less good times in a month to invest in a console. Retailers often start the month with some really strong Nintendo Switch deals, go quiet for the middle weeks and then launch more price drops and new bundles to coincide with pay day towards the end of the month. This isn’t an exact science, and there are always exceptions, but generally this seems to be the trend.
Check back regularly – we update our prices at least four times an hour, and we regularly see excellent deals appear, sell extremely quickly, and go out of stock in a flash. Once again, this is more likely to happen at the start or end of the month than it is in the middle – but it definitely pays to keep an eye on the market.
Know what you’re looking at – one of the most common mistakes people can make when it comes to looking for great value bundles is over-valuing bundled in games. Don’t pay over the odds for a bundle just because it features a couple of extra games (that may be available for less than the bundle’s price mark-up).
Know what you’re looking for – similar to above, the market can suddenly look much clearer if you know exactly what it is you’re after. Though it’s easy to be swayed by new deals (and, sometimes, a deal can be so good it’s worth grabbing and buying the other parts separately), if you know the general values of the console, games and accessories you’re looking to get, you can spot the really good deals more easily.
Look into buying the components separately – following on from the last point, if you know exactly what it is you’re looking for, then it’s always worth checking out our Nintendo Switch games and accessories sections to see if you can save by buying the items separately (we only list bundles that the retailers have specifically listed together). In our experience, most of the time the bundles you’ll see on this page will be the cheapest and easiest options, but you never know!
