Many of the Nintendo Switch deals we saw for Black Friday and Cyber Monday were either for the older version of the console or the new model at full price with some bundled extras. Amazon has stepped it up ahead of the holidays, though, with the best direct price drop we've seen on the console itself plus some extra Amazon promotional credit. Simply head to Amazon to pick up the Nintendo Switch at just $269.99 by clipping the $30 coupon on its product page there. Then, during checkout, enter the code D3E2CDJ6GB6S to score $30 in Amazon credit that will be delivered to your email within 7 days of your console shipping. Since you'll definitely be shopping at Amazon again, that credit is basically free money. This deal applies only to the gray console at present and we expect it won't be around for much longer.

As mentioned, this is the refreshed Switch released in 2019, which means it includes the battery improvements that make it last for up to 9 hours per charge. A lengthy battery life is essential when you're gaming on-the-go (which is partially what the console was made for!). It also has enhanced Joy-Con controllers as well to help fix some of the issues Switch owners have experienced with the original model. We break down the improvements in our review.

The next purchase you'll need to make is on a microSD card. The Nintendo Switch can hold some digital games on its own, but soon enough you'll need a memory card to hold more. This 128GB microSD card on sale for $17 at Amazon has triple the storage space that the console does and would make sure you're good to save plenty of digital games.
