Nintendo Switch Console (Neon) - £247.49 delivered from Maplin

23
Found 8th Mar
Maplin have unfortunately gone into administration. However, they are selling off their Nintendo Switch consoles for £247.49 delivered, which seems to be the cheapest price for the console at the moment. I would recommend paying with a credit card in case there are any issues.

They are also selling off SNES mini for only £107.99 each, but unfortunately there is a limit of 2 per customer (in store only). I wonder why they went under?

Great price, thanks for sharing OP. It's a real shame they've gone into administration, I always found the staff very helpful and knowledgeable at our local store, really wish them well and hope they get a chance of being retained by any future prospective buyer for the business.

With no games is this that great a price?
I guess it depends on the games you want, I game bundle is only as good as the games that come with it, I'd rent my games anyway because most switch games have hardly any replay value, for the console alone this is a good deal though.

This plus Mario kart is going to be £290 still, sure an amazing deal is just around the corner for me...

Toys r us cheaper if you can get one... All the ones near me don't have any.
Sub £250 is a good price...
Still sitting tight for a sub-£300 Switch with Odyssey and BotW deal, although now I have a John Lewis discount card that spics things up a bit

It does say 'web only' on the product page.

Double checked and it is possible to collect in store but this is more like - pay now and get it delivered to store, so I doubt nus discount would work here.

If you order online... how do you know you're not going to be a creditor and they don't send the item?

I imagine you would be covered if you paid with credit card (not sure maplin allows any other way to pay) thanks to the protection policy with anything over £100.

TBH though considering this is supposed to be a clearance they could be a fair bit cheaper, not even the lowest the Switch has been. With no game included I wouldn't want to pay more than £200 for one...

Exactly what I was thinking. £107 for the SNES mini?!

They'll use the extra money for the creditors....

It’s pretty good.

The best Black Friday deals (the cheapest I’ve seen) had a console plus 2 decent games for £300.

This console plus the same 2 games (Mario Odyssey and Mario Rabbids) would set you back £310 - £320?

So yes I think it’s a good deal.

To be honest it’s worth every penny I’ve played my switch for days and days and it’s just pure enjoyment!

Sorry, didn't pick up on the sarcasm, on paper...
Did anyone order one and has it moved from "in progress" on the order status page?
Back in stock for those that are interested
