Last year was the year of the Switch. Nintendo's device - half portable, half home console - blew away sales expectations, and was almost impossible to get hold of in the US for months since the launch, with Nintendo ramping up production to try and meet demand.

This month, you can find deals if you know where to look. Here at Tech Advisor, we're constantly scouring the web for the best Nintendo Switch deals available, so if and when there are any you will find them right here on this page.

Best Nintendo Switch deals right now

As mentioned above, there is a bit of a Switch shortage across the globe. Nintendo is trying its best, but demand is so high that you can't expect deals to stick around for very long at all. If you see a good deal, we'd recommend making your decision quickly. Hesitation could mean you miss out!

Below is our pick of the best Switch deals you'll find today.

Cheap Nintendo Switch deals: What to look for

There's some bad news here: realistically, you probably shouldn't get your hopes up for massive savings on the Switch. Blame the console's popularity for that - people are still buying it in droves at full price, so retailers really don't have much reason to slash prices in order to move stock - in fact it's been selling out all over the place as bundles arrive.

Still, there are sure to be some discounts around if you know where to look. Not many stores have cut prices on the Switch itself - at least not by more than £10 - but keep an eye out for good bundles, which offer the console alongside a game or extra accessories. Switch games can cost £40 or more, so the saving overall if you buy a bundle can be much more than a £10 saving on the Switch on its own, for example.

There are plenty of brilliant Switch games available, but our pick of the best include The Legend of Zelda and Super Mario Odyssey so deals on Switch bundles that include those are among the best. Check out our round-up of the best Nintendo Switch games for more.

For people who already own Switches, you'll find some discounts on individual games, too.

Accessories might be a better bet though - the pricing of extra controllers was one of the big gripes a lot of people had with the console at launch, so we've seen a offers trying to shift stock of controllers and other accessories including carry cases.

Also remember that the Switch uses microSD cards for expandable storage, and USB-C for power - there are loads of great offers on memory cards and portable power banks, so we'd definitely recommend looking now if you're thinking of expanding your storage or grabbing a battery pack.
