Nintendo’s OLED Switch is $50 off for members at Sam’s Club

If you want an OLED Switch, you usually have to pay $349.99 – $50 more than the standard Switch. That’s not the case right now for Sam’s Club members, who can get one, along with a whole bunch of free accessories, for $299.99 by choosing “pickup” before adding one to your cart.

In addition to the console, which includes two white Joy-Cons, this bundle comes with a 256 GB SanDisk microSD card, a wired PDP Faceoff Deluxe Plus controller (featuring a headset for wired listening), PDP’s LVL40 wired gaming headset and the Mario Commuter Case to carry all of it. All of that normally costs $439.98, but you save $140.

Switch on OLED package

At Sam’s Club, the Switch OLED (white) includes four accessories: a wired controller, a wired headset, a 256 GB microSD card, and a commuter case.

A Sam’s Club membership costs $50 a year for its Club level, or $110 a year for its Plus level, which offers more benefits, including free shipping. The cost per shipment for its Club level members is $4, which isn’t bad.

As for what separates the Switch OLED from the standard Switch: It mostly has to do with the screen, though there are other advantages. It features a 7-inch OLED 720p display that has much greater contrast and color accuracy than the standard Switch’s 6.2-inch LCD panel. The Switch OLED also benefits from having double the onboard storage (64 GB vs. 32 GB), smaller bezels around its screen, improved speakers and a much better kick. In terms of power, however, it is identical to other Switch consoles. One last benefit: Its dock has an Ethernet port built in for wired connectivity, so you can get much faster download speeds and Internet performance without extra accessories.

This deal came to my attention from Wario64from’s Twitter account, and the timing is great, as today is Mario Day, a time when Nintendo and many retailers discount just about anything with the word “Mario” in its name. Sam’s Club says this deal will last until April 9, but it might be best to take advantage of it sooner rather than later if the drop in inventory causes the retailer to pull the deal.
