Nintendo logoNintendo Switch consoles from £270*The best prices for Nintendo's latest console

Ongoing

Below you'll find a round-up of the cheapest Nintendo Switch console prices, which include delivery unless otherwise stated.

We've chosen the top deals for both the standalone system and console bundles. Since launching in March 2017 for £279.99, the lowest Nintendo Switch price we've seen was £255 without a game, using a code at Tesco Direct back in the summer, while prices dipped to £269 over Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Cheapest Switch deals and top bundles we found at 12.02pm on Thu 30 Nov:

  • Nintendo Switch without a game for £269.99 at Amazon*
  • Nintendo Switch with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for £309.99 at Smyths

When we looked, Amazon's market-leading price meant we could only find one example where it was cost effective to buy a Switch console bundled with a game (Mario Kart 8 from Smyths). In every other case, it was cheaper to buy the console on its own and pick up games separately - see our Nintendo Switch games round-up for the cheapest prices for a number of the console's most popular titles.

If you're interested in other consoles, check out our PS4 deals page and Xbox One deals page.

Expired Deals

Tesco Direct logoHot console bundles via Tesco £25 off code*Incl cheapest Xbox One S & Nintendo Switch deals we've seen

Expired

Online retailer Tesco Direct* has three codes which get you £5, £10 or £25 off selected products until 11.59pm on Sun 17 Sep, which can net some stonking savings on selected products, including the cheapest Xbox One S and Nintendo Switch consoles we've ever seen.

Below are the three levels of discount you can get with each code and the minimum spend required before you can use it:

  • £5 off when you spend £40-£74.99 using the code TDX-VPKP
  • £10 off when you spend £75-£149.99 using the code TDX-YGHR
  • £25 off when you spend £150+ using the code TDX-TWHJ

Note: Since first publishing this deal on Tue 12 Sep, Amazon* has released three codes to match Tesco Direct's offer on selected gaming products. While the Tesco Direct codes make its prices cheapest or the same as Amazon's in the examples we've picked out below, if you want to buy a Nintendo Switch console, they're cheapest on Amazon using the code VG25OFF150 (neon blue and red Nintendo Switch console for £254* / grey Nintendo Switch console for £254*).

What are the best discounts available?

While the codes work on most items sold by Tesco Direct (infant milk formula and products sold by third parties are excluded), we’ve picked out the following examples using them on consoles and games as they are market-leading deals and the cheapest we’ve ever seen in some cases:

We also found the following non-gaming market-leading deals using the codes on Thu 14 Sep:

  • Amazon Echo Dot (white)* - £44 using code TDX-VPKP (£49 without). Next cheapest we found, £49.99 delivered at Amazon
  • Nutribullet 600* - £64 using code TDX-VPKP (£69 without). Next cheapest we found, £70 delivered at Debenhams

Unless otherwise stated, Tesco Direct delivery is £3 or you can collect at a Tesco store for free (find your nearest*).

Don't assume that just because the codes get you up to £25 off, you won't be able to find an item cheaper elsewhere – always compare prices before buying. Stock is limited on some products so go quick if you want something.

The codes can't be used with any other code and you can only use one of each code per person.

Nintendo logoNintendo 'free' game with 3DS + Pokémon/Smash Bros*Buy console and selected games, get a free game download - norm up to £40

Expired

This deal is for people who have recently bought or are going to buy a Nintendo 2DS, 3DS or 3DS XL handheld console, plus one of the following games: Super Smash Bros, Pokémon Omega Ruby or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire.

If that’s you, you can download a free game from Nintendo* when you register your new console and game to Club Nintendo (a free loyalty club) before 11.59pm on Mon 12 Jan, 2015.

Provided one of the three eligible games is purchased as well as your console, you’ll get the freebie. It doesn’t matter where you buy the items, as long as they’re new and weren’t registered before Thu 11 Sep.

Registration is free and there are seven digital downloads to choose from:

This is handy if you’ve already bought one of these DS consoles and games for Christmas, but not worth buying one specially just for this deal.

Here’s how to do it...

  1. Register your console and qualifying game with Club Nintendo (you may have to wait up to 24 hours after registering). Then, log in.
  2. Once logged in, request a free download code before 12 Feb 2015 and it will be sent to you via email within 48 hours.
  3. Go to the Nintendo eShop and use your code at the online checkout before 12 Mar 2015 to get your free download.

 

MSE Debs says:

The freebie’s probably only worth it if you’ve already bought or were planning to buy a Nintendo DS console plus one of the games anyway. If you’ve bought them as a Christmas present, you could register on the recipient’s behalf and give them the code as an extra little gift allowing them to choose their own free game.

Nintendo logoNintendo spend £100 to get ‘free’ £50 bundle*Enter code to get Mario backpack, magazine and hat

Expired

Spend £100 or more on anything at Nintendo Official UK Store* before Sun 30 Nov and you’ll get a ‘free’ £50 Mario bundle. Simply enter the MSE Blagged code mario1 at the checkout.

If it says ‘Sold out’ next to the bundle when you enter the code, ignore it. We checked this with Nintendo and it’s a glitch on the site - the bundles are definitely in stock. You should still go quick if you fancy it though, as there are only 200 bundles available.

The bundle contains a Mario backpack (usually £29.99, next cheapest we found £33), a copy of Nintendo Magazine’s Ultimate Guide to Mario issue (no longer available but was £9.99) and a funky red Mario hat (normally £9.99, we couldn’t find this exact hat to compare but similar go for about £6).

MSE Debs says:

It isn’t the cheapest way to buy a console, or games, but if you’re keen to buy from Nintendo directly, the freebies might outweigh the savings you’d make by shopping somewhere cheaper.

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.

And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.
