nintendo switch cyber monday deals: what to expect in 2021

© Provided by GamesRadar Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch deals

It's easy to forget that Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch deals can still offer some incredible discounts once the excitement of the Friday before has come to an end. Retailers often keep their offers running all weekend long, switching over to Cyber Monday from late on Sunday onwards. With new products added to sales and additional discounts on popular accessories, Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch deals are well worth sticking around for. 

Of course, the best Nintendo Switch bundles are likely to be out of stock by the time Monday, November 29 rolls around. These are some of the most popular offers of the weekend itself, and usually fly off the shelves even before Black Friday Nintendo Switch deals fully kick off. That means we would be surprised to see further savings on Cyber Monday. 

However, if you've already snagged yourself a console in the weekend's sales, Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch deals can still help you pad out your early collection. We often see some of the best Nintendo Switch accessories lining the shelves as late as Tuesday, still offering excellent discounts on cheap Nintendo Switch controllers and more.

We're rounding up all our expectations for this year's offers right here, but stay tuned because we'll be bringing you all the best deals as soon as they land as well. 

When will Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch deals start?

Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch deals traditionally begin on the Monday after Black Friday - this year falling on November 29. However, retailers often simply continue running the same Black Friday discounts into Cyber Monday, potentially adding a few new models or dropping prices on unpopular devices even further. 

The two sales tend to merge into one another, then. However, if a store is running a distinctly separate sale, we do generally see messaging on their sites changing from midday on the Sunday before. 

Where will the best Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch deals be?

US: 

Amazon: Bundles often include memory cards and games

Best Buy: Regular discounts on games and accessories

Newegg: Avoid third party consoles but great for cheap peripherals

Walmart: Often has some of the lowest game prices around

UK:

Amazon: Often cuts the price of the Switch Lite

Argos: Excellent for accessory bundles

Currys: Regularly has the best bundle prices around

Very: Best for higher value bundles with pricey peripherals

Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch deals: what to expect

Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch deals are uniquely positioned in 2021. We'll have three models on the shelves by the time November rolls around, all at different ages. Considering we've already seen some significant discounts hitting the Nintendo Switch Lite throughout the year, it's likely the biggest discounts will hit the cheaper models. 

Not only that, but the standard Nintendo Switch has also taken a permanent price cut in the UK - all the way down to £259. That means we're expecting bundles to fall in line with this new price pretty soon, offering up package prices of between £259 and £289 in this year's Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch deals. 

While the new OLED model isn't quite set to replace the original on the shelves, it's appearance in the line up has already affected sales prices on the standard device in the UK and Europe, and may well do so in the US as well. 

At just $40 / £40 more expensive, the OLED model will become the better value option, and retailers will have to bring the price of the previous generation down to ensure it's still viable on the shelves.

That likely means big things for Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch bundle deals. While previous years have only enjoyed one or two bundles over the course of Black Friday, running quickly out of stock before the weekend, it's likely that we'll see far more offers holding out for longer in 2021. The main console now has two other devices to compete with, which means far smaller crowds flocking to offers and a wider selection of bundles to choose from. 

Of course, we're also looking forward to plenty of savings on the best Nintendo Switch headsets and cheap Nintendo Switch game sales. These discounts should last all the way through to Cyber Monday as well.

Today's best deals

If you can't wait until November for your Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch deals, it's worth noting that there are usually plenty of discounts on games and accessories floating around throughout the year. You'll find all the latest prices on this gear just below.

We do expect this year's Cyber Monday offers to be better than the everyday prices you'll find on the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite consoles right now. However, if you're after some Joy-Con action today, you'll find the latest offers below as well.

Nintendo Switch (Neon Blue / Red) | $299.99 at Best Buy

Finding a Nintendo Switch was been incredibly difficult in the lead up to Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch deals, and any stock that appeared was quickly grabbed. Because of that, this listing was well worth paying attention to. Considering how tricky the console had been to find during the pandemic, any stock at all was a big deal.

Nintendo Switch Lite + 128GB memory card | $235

$218.99 at Amazon

This was one of the only ways to save on a Switch Lite bundle in last year's Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch deals. You were saving a little on the price of the memory card here, with plenty of color options up for grabs.

Nintendo Switch Lite (Yellow, Turquoise, or Gray) | $199.99 at Best Buy

The compact Switch Lite is a great alternative (or companion) to the full-size Nintendo Switch, offering the same catalog of games - minus a very limited number - in a more mobile-friendly package. Like its bigger sibling, the Switch Lite was still hard to find, so this was a great chance to buy into the Switch family, even if it wasn't at a discounted price.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe| $60 $44.99 at Amazon

The latest Mario Kart is comfortably one of the best in years, and it's practically made for the Holiday season thanks to its split-scren racing tournaments and light-hearted battles that everyone can get involved with. An essential purchase for any Nintendo Switch owner to say the least.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons | $60 $49.99 at Amazon

New Horizons is easily one of the most charming and relaxing games on the planet. Taking players to a lush desert island, they are then able to create their own community from nothing. This was an excellent $10 discount in last year's Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch deals but we do expect more savings in 2021.

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening | $60 $39.99 at Best Buy

Link's Awakening is a fantastic remake of an absolute classic, and it had been selling like hotcakes last Cyber Monday. Best Buy was selling it digitally for $39.99, but it also had physical copies for $49.99, which was still $10 off. However, while supplies lasted, GameStop was selling new physical copies for $39.99 as well.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild | $60 $44.99 at Amazon US

Amazon had a $15 discount on The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild last year. Even after all this time, Breath of the Wild is still the best game on Switch. Everyone on the planet should play it. It revolutionized Zelda as we know it, and it outdid virtually every other open-world game not by making the biggest world ever, but by making a perfectly sized world that's overflowing with creativity.

Nintendo Switch + Paper Mario: The Origami King | £319.99 at Very

While there wasn't a strict saving with this offer, it was a good purchase because the latest Paper Mario is a blast. Plus, Switches had been hard to come by this year so we weren't complaining! Only the Grey console was available via this deal.

Nintendo Switch (Neon Red / Blue) + Ring Fit Adventure | £350 £334.98 at Argos

Ring Fit was been a big hit last year, so this bundle was well worth considering. Plus, it got you the Switch console which had been very hard to come by over the last few months. That was a win-win in our books.

Nintendo Switch Lite (Turquoise) + Animal Crossing New Horizons | £209.99 at Amazon UK

If you were keen to grab a Nintendo-related bargain but you want it in turquoise, this was your chance. Whether you opted for a Coral or Turquoise console, this deal (and the game attached to it) remained excellent.

Nintendo Switch Lite (Grey) | £199

£189.99 at Amazon UK

The Nintendo Switch Lite was £10 off if you just want the standard Switch Lite console with no games included. That was particularly rare last year considering straight discounts on Switch consoles were non-existent.

Super Mario 3D All-Stars | £50 £39.99 at Amazon

Return to three of Mario's most beloved adventures with this bundle. Drawing from decades of gaming history, it contains Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy. In other words, it's got three top-tier games for the price of one. Lovely.

Be sure to check out our expectations for this year's Cyber Monday Xbox Series X deals and Cyber Monday PS5 deals if you're after more console action.
