Our absolute favorite Nintendo Switch Cyber Monday deals
We’ve picked the best deals according to our deal experts’ opinions, in combination with CNET reviews, to make sure you get the most value for your money.
Get the upgraded Switch OLED from Dell and you’ll get a free $75 digital gift card included with the purchase. That doesn’t bring down the $350 starting price, but it’s a great way to snag some free games or accessories. You’ll receive the gift card via email, and it expires 90 days after it’s issued.
Straightforward discounts on Switch consoles are still pretty hard to come by, but you can score some savings with this bundle deal. Grab the standard Switch console at full price, and you’ll also get Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (a $60 value) and a three-month Switch Online individual membership (an $8 value) included.
Tears of the Kingdom is the latest entry in the iconic Legend of Zelda series, and one of the best Switch games of all time. Discounts on this title have been pretty rare since it hit shelves this spring, but right now you can snag it along with a caddy at a discount over at QVC.
The Switch itself only has a 32GB storage capacity, so you’ll want to pair it with a microSD card. This SanDisk card is designed specifically for the Switch, has a 512GB capacity and boasts read speeds up to 100 megabytes per second and write speeds up to 90MBps.
The SteelSeries Arctis 1 headset is one of our favorite Switch accessories on the market. It comes with a compact USB-C dongle so you can use it wirelessly with the Switch, but also has a 3.5mm audio cable port for wired use. It supports lossless audio, comes with a detachable microphone and has on-ear controls so you can adjust the volume or mute yourself on the fly. Plus, it boasts a battery life of up to 20 hours on a single charge, and you can customize the EQ to fit your games and needs.

There are rumors, however, that a new console could be released as soon as late 2024. Considering that it’s been over six years since the original Switch was first released, this nifty handheld is certainly due for an update.

You won’t find any discounts on Switch consoles or accessories at Nintendo’s online store, but it has been rolling out some new bundle deals at select partner retailers throughout November. Plus, you can find big savings on hundreds of digital games at Nintendo’s eShop.
