Nintendo Switch deals – where you can still buy a Switch Lite online this week


LOOKING for a Nintendo Switch? They’ve been hard to come by in recent weeks, but some retailers are still flogging them.

We’ve tracked down the best places to buy a Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite online this week.

The Nintendo Switch has been surprisingly hard to find over the past few months

The full-fat Nintendo Switch is by far the hardest model to find.

Argos is out of stock on the Red/Blue version, but has limited stock of the Grey model.

However, it’s a matter of luck as to whether one is available at a store near you.

Detachable Joy-Con controllers let you enjoy local multiplayer with just one console

Amazon sellers are flogging units, but they’re vastly overpriced.

You should be paying far off £279.99 for a Nintendo Switch, so ignore sellers trying to peddle units for £450 or more.

Nintendo Switch Lite deals – where to buy

The Switch Lite is more widely available.

It’s actually far cheaper than the Switch at £199, but it does have some downsides.

The Switch Lite is a cheaper alternative designed with portability in mind

The main one is that it doesn’t connect to your telly, so you can only use it as a handheld console.

Also, the controllers aren’t detachable, which removes the fun local multiplayer aspect of the Switch proper.

Still, if you’re just looking to play Nintendo games on a handheld, the Switch Lite is a great way to go.

Argos is offering the Switch Lite at its regular price, but stock is limited.

So getting one will depend on local stock in your area:

The Switch Lite comes in a range of bright colours

It’s also available for home delivery within one working day over at Very.

You can spread the cost of your purchase over three months with very, but be sure to pay it off – or risk incurring significant interest.

Finally, the console is available for home delivery over at Smyths Toys.

The retailer has proved a reliable way to get hold of a Switch Lite in recent weeks, so it’s a great option.
