There’s A Rare $25 Discount On The Nintendo Switch OLED Right Now

There’s a strong chance we will see Nintendo’s next-generation console in 2025, but if you just have been itching to play some Nintendo games, the Switch remains an excellent buy. You’re in luck because Amazon is offering $25 off when you clip the on-page coupon, dropping the price to $324. Not only is this a rare discount, but it’s also one of the best prices we’ve tracked on the console. The deal applies to both the White and Neon Red and Blue versions, and the Mario Red Edition is also on sale for $5 more (no coupon clipping required).

Special offer for Gear readers: Get WIRED for just $5 ($25 off). This includes unlimited access to, full Gear coverage, and subscriber-only newsletters. Subscriptions help fund the work we do every day.

The Nintendo Switch OLED (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is the best handheld gaming console on the market right now. It has a much-improved kickstand over the original model, a built-in Ethernet port in the dock, plus a richer, brighter, and bigger screen. There’s also a higher base storage capacity, though we recommend purchasing a microSD card to bolster it even more. Check out our list of the Best Nintendo Switch Games for ideas on what to download first.

The Joy-Cons and internal specs are still the same as what you’d get with the previous edition. It retains the nifty ability to swap between handheld mode and docked mode, and there are a ton of great accessories you can snag to enhance your gaming experience (we’ve rounded up our favorites here). Read our tips and tricks on everything else you can do with a Nintendo Switch.

It’s worth noting that this promotion is part of a larger sale Amazon is running where you can save $25 when you spend $250 on select items. This includes other gaming gear, from PlayStation controllers to the Switch Pro Controller, and even some titles like Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.
