The Nintendo Switch Pro Controller price has remained steady since its release alongside the flagship console in 2017. That's not to say you won't find the occasional deal or sale, however, with a $10/£10 discount every now and then. To help you find the cheapest price possible, we're tracking all the best Nintendo Switch Pro Controller deals here on this page.

On an average day, the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller costs $69.99 (£59.99 / AU$118). We've seen the price drop down to $59.99 in the US and £54.99 in the UK in previous sales, while in Australia you'll usually find it on offer for AU$89 - AU$98. 

If you're looking for Pro Controller sales, you'll have the best luck during the holiday period - Black Friday and Cyber Monday are particularly good times, though discounts are available throughout the year. If you see a deal below, don't expect the offer to last long. 

Equally, if things look a little expensive, bookmark this page and keep checking back - we'll bring you the cheapest Nintendo Switch Pro Controller deals from around the world, as soon as they drop. Or, take a look at the cheap Pro Controller alternatives further down the page - sacrificing a few little-used features can save you some serious cash if you're willing to shop third party.

Is the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller worth it?

In our Nintendo Switch Pro Controller review, we called it "a must-have" if you primarily use your Nintendo Switch at home - and it's great for tabletop mode too. It's certainly a premium addition to your Switch set up, but we’d say it’s an essential one. If you find yourself playing in docked mode for any extended period of time it's well worth the cash. 

So why is the Pro Controller so expensive? The cross-platformers among you will have noticed that this price seems a tad higher than you'll find DualShock 4 deals or cheap Xbox One controllers. However, with all the rumble and motion technology inside these official controllers, costs add up and the ultimate result is well worth the cash if you're looking for a more conventional gaming experience when docked. 

If, however, you're just looking for a new controller to expand your multi-player options, we'd suggest looking at an extra set of Joy-Con. Coming in at just $10 more, you get a new color set for your Switch, and two extra multiplayer options instead of one. You'll find the latest Nintendo Switch Joy-Con prices just below if this sounds like the better option.

Cheaper Nintendo Switch Pro Controller alternatives

The Nintendo Switch Pro Controller price may be a little eye-watering for those of us used to the cost of PlayStation or Xbox. There are still options, however, if you're shopping a little cheaper. Power-A and PDP are well known for their cheap Pro Controller alternatives, and while you may be sacrificing motion controls or seamless wireless pairing here, the gamepads below offer a similar traditional controller feel without Nintendo's price tags. 

How to find Nintendo Switch Pro Controller sales

Nintendo Switch Pro Controller sales are fairly limited to seasonal shopping periods, but we do see $10 discounts throughout the year as well. Thanks to the Switch's enduring appeal, these controllers aren't losing their value any time soon, and with the recent surges in demand we don't expect any major Pro Controller sales to hit retailers any time soon. That said, the comparison charts above will always bring you the cheapest offers around, so keep an eye out for that $59.99 price point as it's likely the best you'll find right now.
