Where To Buy A Nintendo Switch In 2021: Switch OLED, Switch Lite, And Special Editions

Here's where you can buy a Nintendo Switch, Switch Lite, or Switch OLED, plus special-edition bundles like the Animal Crossing Switch.

Since the Nintendo Switch's release in 2017, Nintendo has expanded its line of consoles to include the handheld-only Switch Lite, various special editions, and the upcoming Nintendo Switch OLED. And with major releases like Metroid Dread and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild's sequel on the horizon, there's no better time to buy a Nintendo Switch if you've been holding off. Thankfully, it's now much easier to buy a Switch than it was in 2020, which saw stock shortages across the board on both the Switch and Switch Lite. As the busy 2021 holiday season draws closer, we might see certain Switch models and colors start to sell out again, so if you're considering buying a Nintendo Switch, you may not want to wait too long to do so.

It's rare to see deals on the Nintendo Switch outside of Black Friday, and even then, the best we usually get is some kind of bundle deal that gets you the Switch and a game or accessory for free. So you don't have to wonder if it's worth waiting around for a deal on the console; outright discounts on brand-new Switch consoles are still few and far between. If you're looking to buy a Nintendo Switch special edition, like the Animal Crossing or Mario Red & Blue versions, you can still do so at some retailers, but you may have to pay above list price for certain editions. Here's a look at where you can buy a Nintendo Switch in 2021, from the Switch OLED to the Switch Lite and more.
