Holiday Gift Ideas: So Many Nintendo Switch Deals Are Going On Right Now

Today’s spotlight deals are the numerous Switch consoles and accessories that are currently on sale. Some of them are cheaper than Black Friday and Cyber Monday prices, others were never discounted to begin with. These would make great holiday gift ideas and all of them will still arrive before Christmas even with free shipping. You better hurry, though, since the deadline is coming up rather quickly.

Gen2 Nintendo Switch (Bigger Battery) with $30 Amazon or Best Buy Credit for $299.99

Use code “D3E2CDJ6GB6S”

This is the best Switch deal out there and better than anything we saw on Black Friday. This is the newest version of the Nintendo Switch. The biggest upgrade is that the new Switch has a much more robust battery life, with around 4.5-9 hours of charge versus 2.5-6.5 hours.

Nintendo Switch Pro Controller for $55

The Switch Pro Controller never dropped under $60 this year, not even on Black Friday or Cyber Monday. Along with the Joy-Cons, this is the only controller that supports rumble and amiibo NFC functionality and the best Switch controller to get if you prefer a gamepad.

Gen 2 Nintendo Switch with Mario Red Joy-Cons, $20 eShop Credit, and Red Case for $299

This bundle is exclusive to Walmart and includes with the Gen 2 Switch V2 kitted with a slick pair of Mario Red Joy-Cons, previously only accessible with the rare Mario Odyssey bundle. Unfortunately, it’s no longer available for delivery. You can order online to reserve your Swich, and then pick it up at your local Walmart. You better hurry before the Christmas rush.

Nintendo Switch with 2 Extra Controllers for $299

For no extra cost you can get two extra controllers with your Gen 2 Switch purchase.

Switch Lite with Crash Team Racing for $219.95

Crash Team Racing currently sells for around $30-$40, so save a bit when you buy it together with the Switch Lite. This is a very good kart racer that’s totally worth adding to your library, and not a port of an older game unlike Mario Kart 8 Deluxe..

Nintendo Switch Lite for $179.99

If a Switch Lite is what you’re looking for, this deal can’t be beat. If you’re an Amazon Prime member, Woot is offering $20 off any color. That’s $120 cheaper than any Switch you can buy right now. The Switch Lite has access to almost the entire Switch library and it’s slimmer and lighter. The controls are non detachable and you can’t play this in docked mode, but if you mostly play this on the go, the $120 could be better spent on a handful of AAA titles.

Get Dashlane Password Manager for Free (Upgrade to Premium for $4.99/mo)

This sponsored deal is brought to you by Dashlane.

If you’re still using the same password for every site, you’re putting yourself at risk. A good password manager can help protect you by randomly generating unique, strong passwords for each of your accounts, and automatically entering them for no-hassle logins. We rated Dashlane as one of the best password managers of 2019. Dashlane offers a free version of its software that allows you to manage up to 50 passwords with autofill functionality. Upgrade to Premium for $4.99/mo (30-day free trial is available) to get unlimited password management, Dark Web Monitoring, and secure VPN.

Pair of Wireless NES Controllers for Nintendo Switch for $29.99 (Originally $59.99)

If you’re a Nintendo Switch Online member, you can score 50% off these retro NES wireless controllers directly from Nintendo. They’re prefect for playing those NES and SNES games that you can play for free on your Switch using your NSO membership. Although they technically work for the Switch Lite, the only way to charge them is to clip them onto your Switch just like Joy-Cons (or with a Joy-Con charger).

Samsung EVO Micro SDXC Memory Cards for Switch

If there’s one big complaint about the Switch, it’s that it only has 32GB of storage. Breath of the Wild alone would take up 40% of your storage capacity. Fortunately, there are still a few memory cards that are still priced the same as on Black Friday.

Recommended Nintendo Switch Power Bank

This is the best value for a Switch power bank and here’s why:

  • USB-PD (Power Delivery) charging up to 18W, equal to the official charger
  • Can fully recharge a dead Switch in 3.5 hours
  • Can fully charge a dead Switch 6 times
  • Can charge the Switch even while you’re playing a game

It has great reviews on Amazon and is way cheaper than the offiicial power bank.

Anker PowerCore Slim 10,000mAh Power Delivery USB Type-C Power Bank is Perfect for Switch

Anker makes the only official Switch power bank. For less than half the price, you get a power bank from the same brand with roughly the same battery capacity (can charge a Switch three times over), the same USB-PD Type C charging interface, and a slimmer design.

Other Console Deals Going On Right Now

Xbox One X Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Bundle + Call of Duty: Modern Warfare + 2nd Controller $349

PS4 Pro With Marvel’s Spider-Man for $279.99

Pricewise, this PS4 Pro deal beats any we saw on Black Friday or Cyber Monday. Since there are no good PS4 Slim deals right now, this is the PS4 console deal to get. Unlike the Slim, the PS4 Pro can play games in enhanced 4K with HDR support.
