How to get a free Nintendo Switch console with a mobile phone contract

How to get a free Nintendo Switch console with a mobile phone contract

Let's be honest, the cost of getting a brand new games console can sometimes make your eyes water. If you are wanting to get your hands on one of the next-gen consoles you are looking at around the £400 mark, and that's without games or accessories included.

Thankfully, there is a different approach that you can take: helping make that initial hit on your bank balance a little bit less painful.

Several mobile phone retailers are providing options to purchase a console by either bolting a deal onto your existing contract or taking a new mobile phone contract with a free gift (as part of a bundle). This helps spread the payments monthly, meaning you aren't having to fork out such a huge upfront cost.

At the time of writing this article, the Nintendo Switch (including the new OLED, standard and lite models) can be picked up as part of a bundle. In this guide, we'll break down where you can get your hands on such a deal.

Mobile Phone deals bundled with a free Nintendo Switch console

If you're determined to grab yourself a Switch but aren't sure which phone you're looking for, you can use the following links from our partner retailers to browse bundles based around the Nintendo Switch...

  • O2 offer a fantastic range of Switch consoles, to get started we'd recommend looking at O2's Accessory Range. O2 allow you to take out a new contract and bolt on a console as part of a payment plan.  They offer fantastic payment flexibility, allowing you to specify the contract length and repayment options which is ideal for budgeting. They currently have available the Switch Standard in Neon Red/Blue and Grey, all colour options on the Nintendo Switch Lite and the latest Switch OLED consoles.

  • EE has a dedicated accessory section, which enables you to build your own mobile contract bundle, they currently offer options on all 3 Nintendo Switch models: Standard, Lite and OLED along with a number of games and accessories.

Already got a phone contract or not due for an upgrade?

If you've already got a mobile phone contract but you're still interested in grabbing a Nintendo Switch(including Nintendo Switch OLED) and spreading those payments...

Which phone models are available as a bundle with a free Nintendo Switch console

We don't tend to see the latest mobile phones available as part of these bundles. For example, the latest iPhone 14 model isn't available as part of a bundle with a Switch - we put this down to the demand for the iPhone 14 being so high on initial launch.

Right now, you can expect to grab phones such as the iPhone 12, Samsung S20, Samsung Galaxy A22 5G, Sony Experia 10 III and Google Pixel 4a. Not quite top of the range, but a damn good option if you ask me!
