Save up to $90 off the RRP of the Nintendo Switch OLED video game console in Australia with these online deals.

The Switch OLED is the latest (and arguably greatest) portable video game console from Nintendo. It has an official recommended retail price of $539, although we've seen it selling for over $600 in some online stores. (You can blame ongoing chip shortages and shipping delays for these markups.)

Get cheapest price - from $470 on eBay

Fortunately, it's possible to grab the Nintendo Switch OLED at a decent price if you act quickly and know where to look. There are also plenty of buy now pay later options available if you'd prefer to spread out the cost over a few months.

It's worth noting that for several years after the first Nintendo Switch was released, it was selling out at peak periods like Christmas, so if you're hoping to gift an OLED Model this year, buying right now is the way to go.

Scroll on to see the cheapest options currently available in Australia. And if you're wondering if the Nintendo Switch OLED is for you, be sure to read our full review.

About Nintendo Switch OLED

The OLED Model isn't hugely different from the original console, at least, not on paper. Here are the main ways each console differs:

Display6.2-inch LCD7-inch OLED
Weight297g320g
StandFixedWide adjustable
DockNo wired LAN portWired LAN port
Storage32GB64GB
ColoursGrey or NeonWhite or Neon

The big differences are the larger, brighter OLED display, a more versatile inbuilt stand and some minor improvements to audio.

While this might not sound like much, the new screen needs to be seen to be believed. It really does make old Switch games look better with richer blacks and more vibrant colours. If you regularly use your Switch in handheld mode, it's definitely worth upgrading to.

You can learn more about how the 2 models differ in our Nintendo Switch vs Nintendo Switch OLED guide.
