Amazon Prime Day Nintendo Switch deals 2022: Dates and offers to expect on consoles, games and more

With Amazon Prime Day fast approaching, it’s time to start thinking about what deals and discounts could be in store.

Prime Day is a multi-day online shopping event held by Amazon, with discounts to be had on a massive range of top-rated products, from the latest tech to Amazon’s own devices, home appliances, beauty and more. A key product category on Amazon Prime Day 2022 will be gaming, and we expect to see deals for Playstation, Xbox and Nintendo fans alike.

Speaking of Nintendo, this guide focuses on the Japanese gaming company and the Prime Day 2022 deals for its Switch console. The Nintendo Switch is always a major talking point during the Prime Day sale, often selling out in record time.

In particular, there will be a lot of interest in the Nintendo Switch OLED (£305.95,, the latest console that arrived towards the end of 2021 and so wasn’t a part of last year’s Prime Day event. Now a few months old, we’re hopeful that the new Switch might have its price reduced as part of Amazon’s big summer sale.

To help bring you all of the best Nintendo deals, we’ve put together this article that focuses exclusively on Switch consoles, games, accessories and bundles included in the Amazon Prime Day 2022 sales event.

Don’t forget, every Switch game works with every Switch console, so while there are various models of the Nintendo machine, any game featured in the sale will work with the Switch you already own. Similarly, if you see a cut-price Switch that isn’t the latest Switch OLED model, don’t worry about it, because the latest games will work just fine.

When will Nintendo Switch Prime Day deals begin?

Amazon hasn’t yet revealed when Prime Day 2022 will land. But thanks to previous years we can make an informed guess. Between 2015 and 2019, Prime Day took place in July. Then for 2020 things were understandably delayed until October, before being brought forward to June for 2021.

By 2022, Amazon says Prime Day will return to its usual July schedule, but hasn’t yet announced the exact date. Given it usually takes place at the start of the week, we reckon it’ll land on either Monday 11 or 18 July. The sales event has spanned two days since 2017, so we expect it to be (at least) 48 hours long this time around.

As for when Nintendo Switch deals will land, it’s impossible to say for now. The deals might arrive at the start of day one, or crop up at some other point during the two-day event.

Do you need Amazon Prime to buy Nintendo Switch Prime Day deals?

And it is. Although everyone loves to bag a bargain, a main driving force behind Amazon’s event is to entice shoppers into signing up for the retailer’s Prime service.

Prime membership currently costs £7.99 a month or £79 a year, and for that subscribers get free next-day delivery (or even same-day where available), exclusive access to certain deals, streaming movies and TV shows from Prime Video, music streaming, free Deliveroo Plus, and same-day grocery delivery from Amazon Fresh and Morrisons in certain postcodes.

A membership might be well worth the £7.99 a month if you intend to use all of those services. But if you only want to use Prime to grab a deal on Prime Day 2022, then we recommend signing up for a free 30-day trial a couple of weeks before the sale begins. You can then cancel your Prime membership after the event (but within 30 days to prevent being charged) if you no longer want to be a subscriber.

We expect to see discounts on consoles, games, accessories and bundles for Prime Day 2022 – and, unlike last year, the new Switch OLED console might well be included in the sale.

Meanwhile, there will be savings on accessories like cases, controllers and screen protectors, plus games from the Mario and Lego franchises, among many others. The deals won’t be around forever, so you’ll have to keep a careful eye on this article during the 48-hour event to make sure you find what you’re looking for at a great price.
