Nintendo Switch Lite Gets Rare Discount At Amazon


While Nintendo hasn’t yet revealed its Switch successor, the latest Nintendo Direct proved that it’s not too late to buy your first Nintendo Switch. Especially when that system is on sale at a terrific price. Anyone looking to embrace the mobile gaming side of life can score a turquoise Nintendo Switch Lite for $169 at Amazon. This is one of lowest prices ever from a major retailer, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see this sell out rather quickly. Alternatively, you can buy the Animal Crossing special-edition version of the turquoise console bundled with New Horizons for $199 at Walmart.

If you’re not enamored with the turquoise model, Walmart has several deals on other Switch Lites, including the blue edition for $172.39, coral for $178, and yellow for $179. All three of those are sold by third-party sellers, but they are fulfilled and shipped by Walmart and come with a free 30-day return window.

Nintendo Switch Lite in an eye-catching yellow at Walmart for $168.50, a pretty big discount compared to its usual $200 MSRP. This deal is from a third-party seller, but your order will be fulfilled and shipped by Walmart.

Though it’s late in the Switch’s lifecycle, the vast library will be relevant for many years to come. Over the past seven years, the Switch has accumulated one of the most impressive game libraries of all time. You’ve got first-party titles like the superb Super Mario Bros. Wonder and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, robust third-party support that makes the Switch Lite perfect for indie games, and the Nintendo Switch Online subscription service has a lot to offer retro gaming fans.

Before you make your purchase, you should know that Nintendo is releasing a gold Zelda-themed Switch Lite on September 26, the same day as The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom. Preorders aren’t live yet in North America, but it will come bundled with one-year of Nintendo Switch Online.

Regular Nintendo Switch or Switch OLED owners should check out the current batch of discounts on Joy-Con controllers at Amazon and Walmart. Switch Lite users can use Joy-Cons in tabletop mode, too–but again, you’re limited to the 5.5-inch screen. Plus, you’ll want to pick up a stand to prop it up.
