Nintendo Switch OLED Gets Big Discount At Amazon

In addition to the rare Switch OLED deal at Amazon, you can also save on the Walmart-exclusive Nintendo Switch Lite bundle.


If you're in the market for a Nintendo Switch, Amazon has cut the price of the Switch OLED model by $40. This particular model has a very sharp and vibrant OLED display, as well as several other neat upgrades. And for a limited time--Amazon deals often end without warning--you can get the model with Neon Red and Blue Joy-Con controllers for $310. If you want an extra pair of controllers for multiplayer, check out Walmart's fantastic deal on the Super Mario Party Joy-Con bundle.

This version of the Switch has double the storage capacity of the regular model--64GB instead of 32GB--and an improved stand for when you want to play Tears of the Kingdom on a plane. The OLED screen really does make a tangible difference to games, and when you're playing retro titles via the Nintendo Online membership, these titles look better than ever.

Like the standard Switch model, the OLED comes with a dock to connect it to your TV and two Joy-Con controllers. The dock is wider than the original, and it includes an ethernet port.

If you are in the market for a Switch but you're on a budget or only want a portable-only console, you can also check out this Walmart deal on the special-edition Animal Crossing bundle that comes with New Horizons.

The Switch Lite is still a rock-solid handheld console. It can't connect to your TV, it uses a 720p LCD screen, and it has no detachable Joy-Cons, but its compatible with nearly every Switch game. Normally $200, you can get this for $179, and as a reminder, it comes with a download code for Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

You'll likely want to beef up your internal storage no matter which Nintendo console you go for, and fortunately, microSD cards are very affordable right now. Our top pick at the moment is the SanDisk 512GB microSD, more than enough space for Nintendo first-party games and indies, and is discounted from $60 to $26 at Amazon currently. There are also a bunch of Nintendo's best first-party games discounted to excellent price at Amazon and Walmart.

Some of the highlights here include recent releases like Super Mario RPG and Super Mario Bros. Wonder, and you can also pick up several Zelda games, more Mario, and the delightful Kirby's Return to Dreamland.
