There's so many ways to play with the Nintendo Switch Grey Console.

The new Switch console now features a significantly longer battery life up to 9 hours for gaming on the go!

The clever Switch works as a home gaming system AND a portable console to suit all your gaming needs. There are 3 different ways to play. The first is through your TV just like an ordinary console, using the controllers to play alone or with friends on a range of top class games that bear Nintendo's tried and trusted seal of quality.

The second mode lets you play tabletop. Just prop the console anywhere and use its built in screen and detachable Joy-Con controllers to have fun on any flat surface either at home or on the move.

The third mode is a traditional handheld experience. Just hold it like you would a phone or a Game Boy, view the games on the screen and work the buttons in handheld mode. The Nintendo Switch has motion controls just like the ones pioneered with the Wii.

Attach the Joy-Con straps and slip the straps onto your wrists to enjoy the intuitive motion controls. The IR Motion Camera in each Joy-Con can detect the shape, movement and distance of objects captured by the camera.

Play wherever you like, however you want, using the 6.2 inch screen HOME Menu to start games and select game settings. You can also link consoles together to enjoy local multiplayer. Another option is to connect via the internet to play with far-off friends and users all over the world. To play online, you will need to subscribe to the Nintendo Switch online subscription service.

1. Buy an eligible Electrical item £199 or more from this offer on 9 months Buy Now Pay Later. All eligible products are contained within the offer page, access via shop now. (Offer not valid if you choose 6 or 12 months Buy Now Pay later).

2. By entering Q4RXX in the promo code box at checkout your item will be put on 9 months Buy Now Pay Later automatically. We'll then credit 10% of the item price back to your account by 15th October 2020 or the despatch date, whichever is later. We'll email you when we have applied the credit to your account.
Order must be placed online. If you return your item, the credit will be reversed. This can't be used in conjunction with other offers (entering any other promo code apart from Q4RXX in checkout will exclude you from this promotion). Offer live 27th August - 3rd September 2020.

What is Buy Now Pay Later?
Buy Now Pay Later is an interest-bearing option that allows you to delay payments on your purchases for 9 months. The delayed payment period starts from the date of order (including pre-ordered items and those not ready for immediate despatch). Buy Now Pay later is subject to eligibility.

How is interest calculated?
Interest is calculated daily from date of order, compounded every 28 days and added to your account as a lump sum at the end of the delayed payment period. This means you will pay interest on interest. Your interest will be detailed in checkout.

How to avoid paying interest?
You can avoid all of the interest by paying the cash price before the end of the delayed payment period, this can be done in one full payment or multiple partial payments.

Making partial payments without clearing the cash price in full will reduce the lump sum of compound interest charged at the end of the delayed payment period.

Remember if you choose not to pay the cash price before the end of the delayed payment period, any outstanding balance plus a lump sum of compound interest will be charged to your Very account.

How do I make a Buy Now Pay Later payment?
To make a full or partial payment simply log into My Account, choose "Make a payment", select "Pay Buy Now Pay Later" and allocate your payment to the specific Buy Now Pay Later you wish to pay off. Alternatively, you can call us.

What happens after the delayed payment period?
If you have not paid the cash price in full or have only made a partial payment, a lump sum of interest will be charged to your Very account. Any outstanding balance plus the interest will now become payable on your account.

As the outstanding balance, plus the interest now form part of your payable balance they will attract interest at your account rate, meaning you will pay interest on interest. This will be included within your account minimum payment request every 28 days and cannot be repaid using Take 3.

If you have paid the cash price in full before the end of the delayed payment period, you will not pay any interest.

What is excluded from Buy Now Pay Later?
The costs for delivery, installation services and any warranty and insurance products cannot be placed on Buy Now Pay Later. Buy Now Pay Later availability is subject to your credit and account status.

Do I still have to pay my minimum payment?
Yes, allocating payments to Buy Now Pay Later will not cover the minimum payment for your Very account. If you have a non-Buy Now Pay Later balance on your Very account, you will still need to make at least your minimum payment as shown on your statement.

Decent price. Some people have had problems with Very but I never have, and I’ve had cashback 2-3 times. As long as you follow the instructions you’ll be fine. Web chat with them if you’re concerned and take screenshots of the conversation and each step of the check out process.

Crazy that the Switch is still holding at its’ original RRP. Voted hot.

I actually got mine for £252 when Argos sent a 10% off voucher as an apology for a cancelled order due to misprice. That was January/February 2017 and it’s still the same £280 price. Surely there’ll be a drop soon? Probably when the PS5 XX are released or their prices announced.

I used to have no problems with Very until one day they just changed my terms etc so good luck
Never had a issue with this sort of set up from Very, credit usually comes on following month, and just pay it off before your BNPL period ends - heat added OP - decent deal
So if I buy this with the code for 279 and then immediately pay it off immediately... I get 10% paid back as Very Credit?

Read terms

Don't pay it off straight away. Wait till the credit is applied or just before the 12 months are up to avoid interest.

Credit is made to your normal account so once applied call customer service and ask them to transfer that credit to a bnpl order of your choice.

You are essentially right yes. Just make sure you use the correct BNPL period and that the code successfully applies.

As another has said, I’d pay off 90% when they have credited their 10%.
To be honest, I usually pay it off before and then just keep checking that the balance drops to zero by the date they say they’ll pay back by.

No. Pay £255.95 (£252 plus £3.95 postage) and you’ve essentially paid it off then because Very credit the final 10% / £28.

But as another user said it’s probably better to wait for Very to credit the £28 first then pay off the remainder.

Apreciate the advice.

Says I'll be credited by 15th Oct, so make the min payments until then, and I don't get charged the 39.9% APR interest?

(Apologies, not used Very credit before, and heard a few horror stories on here, so keen to get it right).

I gave a bit of advice earlier. Just make sure you follow every step. Screenshot each stage of the process. I’d even go on web chat and confirm it all while you’re doing it and screenshot that too.

But yes. 15th Oct sounds about right. Pay off your portion on or before that date and your credit account will be £0.00 owed


Sorry to be ‘that guy’ but are you sure you want to pay this amount for a Switch so late? I’m only asking because I anticipate a price drop soon with the new consoles launching. That said, it’ll probably only drop to £200-250 so ignore this, GET IT BOUGHT!

No issues with any of my BNPL transactions over last 2 years (one was a switch with £50 discount). All easily manageable on the Very website which is simple to manage even on multiple purchases. You get constant updates from Very on the status of your orders and payments due, with exact info on what will happen if you do not pay on the BNPL date. Simple and effective if you like to buy now and pay later.

Buying a Switch now is not an issue and as you say the Price may drop, but only by including extra games say at Christmas. You may see a deal of a Switch with Animal Crossing and maybe MarioKart at Christmas for say £295. A New switch update (rumored as the Switch Pro) could arrive in the new year, but it will not offer much more than what your Switch dows now, it will not be next Gen as the Switch is outselling everything currently, so why would Nintendo bring out something new, the wont. They could in theory drop a Console only version on us, without handheld features, thus giving us 3 versions.... Hand Held, Dock version and a console only.

No need for Nintendo to drop the price as it's still selling, they're don't even need to compete with Sony or Microsoft.

You don't need to make the min payments for the duration of the Buy Now Pay Later period. So you can pay nothing until the 10% is credited to your account. Then pay the remainder off at once, or in however many payments you choose, within the remaining BNPL period, and be charged no interest.

Don't forget they updated the model to the improved battery life version which released here September 2019. Almost double the battery life of the original model. Retained the same RRP.

True. Not a huge change, more of a fix, and to me doesn’t justify it not dropping price as it’s essentially the same technology.

A word of warning ordering from very. I ordered one of these the other day and arrived yesterday in absolutely pitiful condition. Scratches /scuffs all over it and had been heavily used. What kind of a joke is this, didn't realise very repackage second hand goods and send them to new buyers. I was shocked and now have to go through the hassle of returning it. What scares me is if someone had used it for sometime and kept it in good Condition I may have never noticed.

I have ordered in the past and can't remember having an issue. On this occasion I cannot believe this happened and how could happen as they claim they inspect every return.

I assume someone purchased a new one and swapped out for a new model and possibly returned. Its in horrendous condition looks like its been used for years. I'm genuinely shocked.
