Ways to Save at Nintendo 

Of course, a Nintendo discount code is the best way to save on your gaming goodies, but if there isn't one available, there are other ways to get a lower price:  

  • Join the Rewards Programme: If you’re a regular Nintendo customer, become a MyNintendo rewards programme member. The reward programme from Nintendo allows you to earn points and get rewards in multiple different ways, like using Nintendo apps on your smart devices, using the Nintendo eShop or signing up for a Nintendo account. You can earn points and redeem them for rewards like exclusive games, discounts and in-app items, and you can spend Gold Points when you buy Nintendo Switch games on the Nintendo eShop or Nintendo website.
  • Shop Seasonal Sales: Nintendo doesn't often have sales, but it's worth checking during those big seasonal events like Boxing Day, Christmas sales and Black Friday to find discounted products. For example, in 2022, Nintendo ran an up to 60% off Festive Sale with discounts on both Nintendo exclusive games and non-exclusive. 
  • Student Discount: If you’re a student, you can get a student discount at Nintendo. In partnership with Student Beans, students simply need to sign up and verify their student status to get 10% off on all orders from £20.
  • Look Out for Exclusive Deals: When you shop on the Nintendo website, you can find exclusive offers and games and receive free gifts with select purchases. 
  • Browse Third-Party Retailers: You might find a cheaper deal if you shop for Nintendo products on third-party websites and stores, including Amazon, Currys, Argos, John Lewis, Very, Game, Selfridges and more.

Other Nintendo FAQs

Where can I buy a Nintendo Switch?

You can buy a Nintendo Switch directly from the Nintendo Store or from third-party retailers like Currys, Argos, Very and Amazon. We'd recommend browsing through as many websites as possible to get the best price as you'll sometimes be able to pick one up for less in a sale or with a discount code. 

Does Nintendo do Black Friday sales?

Nintendo doesn't often have sales on games and consoles, but Black Friday is an exception. During Black Friday weekend in 2022, Nintendo was offering up to £50 off the Switch with Mario Kart Deluxe, plus discounts on games.

As one of the most popular video game companies in the world, Nintendo is a go-to brand to shop from for the latest games and consoles. Nintendo has become well known for the Gameboy, Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Nintendo DS and Wii consoles, but they’re now popular for their Nintendo Switch devices.

Nintendo Switch is a home video gaming system which offers single and multiplayer gaming. Gamers can use it at home or can take it with them on the go for ultimate mobility and versatility. It easily transforms from a home gaming system to a handheld console with its Joy-Con controllers so you can play Nintendo games on the TV or via the console.

The Nintendo Switch options available include the standard Nintendo Switch, the Nintendo Switch OLED model and Nintendo Switch Lite. The Nintendo Switch and OLED models have TV mode, tablet mode and handheld mode and come with 1x Joy-Con pair, HD rumble and IR Motion Camera. The main differences between these are the size, storage and docking options. The Nintendo Switch Lite just comes in the handheld mode.

The Nintendo Switch had a huge moment during the COVID-19 pandemic with many people gravitating towards Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Gamers love the flexibility and portability of the console and it’s a great family-friendly gaming system with multiple game options available, including Super Mario 3D World, The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild, Pokémon Sword and Ring Fit Adventure.

Nintendo characters are some of the most recognisable in the video game industry, and you can find them in video games and merchandise, like bags, hoodies, figurines, soft toys and Lego collaborations.

The most popular Nintendo characters are from Super Mario world. Nintendo gained international recognition after its release of Donkey Kong in 1981 which was an arcade game featuring Donkey Kong and Mario characters. Since then, Mario and his brother Luigi have starred in many different games, including Mario Kart, Mario Party Superstars, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games and much more. The characters you can find from the Super Mario franchise include Princess Peach, Toad, Yoshi, Bowser, Daisy, Wario, Koopa Troopa. Waluigi, and all the baby character versions! There’s even a Mario movie in the works, starring Chris Pratt and Anya Taylor-Joy, so that shows you how much everyone loves the Super Mario World from Nintendo!

More popular Nintendo characters include Pokémon, The Legend of Zelda, Kirby, Splatoon, Monster Hunter, and most recently, Animal Crossing. Animal Crossing: New Horizons on Nintendo Switch came to a lot of people’s rescue during lockdown to provide some escapism and to keep people connected while we were apart. While you make your own characters to play the game, Animal Crossing is also known for Tom Nook, Timmy & Tommy, Isabelle and many other animal characters.
