Amazon is currently running a promotion on the Nintendo Switch that was recently upgraded with improved battery life that tosses in a $25 gift card for free. You can grab the Gray Joy-Con version here and the Neon Blue / Neon Red version here (backorder) while the deal lasts. We highly suggest using that $25 bonus on a microSD card.
Odds are we'll see bundle deals with full games around Black Friday, but if you want to beat the holiday rush or play a specific game early - The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition comes out on the 15th - this is a pretty solid deal. The Neon Blue and Neon Red bundle is already on backorder, so time is of the essence.
Another option would be to go with the new Nintendo Switch Lite, which doesn't actually do any switching, doesn't include Joy-Cons (though it can connect to extra controllers), and features as smaller 5.5-inch screen. However, the Lite does offer the same fundamental handheld experience as the standard Switch at a price point that's $100 cheaper. It's also more portable, has more color options, and an actual D-pad. These features combine to make the Lite attractive as a second Switch console, a console for kids, or a console for people that simply don't care about playing on the TV.
The Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield Zacian and Zamazenta special edition of the Nintendo Switch Lite has been sold out in pre-order at most retailers for ages. But, at the time of writing, pre-orders are live here at GameStop with free shipping slated for November 8th. If you want to grab one as a gift for the holidays, take advantage of this opportunity because it's a pretty safe bet that these will become even harder to find as we get closer to Christmas. The standard gray, turquoise, and yellow models are also available to order (and shipping now) via Best Buy, Walmart, and Amazon.
