I was able to get a free switch when I traded my bank points for amazon gift cards.
13,000 points = $100.  When I traded the points the bank had a better deal on $20 gift cards.
Pick those and 13,000 points= $125.

Some stores have double point weekends that you can use later to buy items.  There are senior days at some stores that will help lower the price.

You might cringe at this, but look on Facebook's marketplace section. That's where I got my Switch. It was basically brand new, still had the box, and all the stuff that comes with it. And it was $30 cheaper than its normal price.

Majority of the time on Facebook's marketplace, it's a parent trying to get rid of it because their kid didn't use it often or an adult who doesn't have time for it. Sometimes they'll price it the same as stores do, but they'll include a game or two (most of the time it's Mario Odyssey or Mario Kart 8 Deluxe).

No money likely means no Switch. Best start saving...

... Unless you know any insiders at Nintendo to give you a free one...

To be honest I got mine off of Craigslist about a few weeks after it came out. Someone actually in my town literally a few minutes away from my home was selling one for $225. Came with Breath of the Wild for Switch as well. Lucked out with that because at the time everyone was selling it for 300 or more.

If you don’t want to spend money for a regular switch since it’s about $300 for one, go for the Switch Lite. Only downside is that it’s only handheld but battery life is better. If you want to get the regular switch, your best bet is to wait till it goes on sale or get one off of Craigslist or some other website where people sell stuff on.
