1) Tempered Glass Screen Protector for less than $10

Buy Now

Before you even use your Switch, this should be your number 1 item, especially if scratches are not really your thing. The Switch is a handheld machine, so at some point in time you are going to get a scratch or 2 on it whenporting it around (and docking / undocking). Having a screen protector will also protect your screen from the Switch TV Dock, which might scratch your Switch display.

Get yours for just $2.99 - $5.99!

2) Case & Screen Protector for less than S$10

If you are the kind of person who likes pretty things and cheap things, then you can also consider this pretty case.

The only downside of the pretty case is that the Switch cannot be docked when you put on the case. But that’s a small thing, as the case can be easily snapped on and off anytime (same for the joy con covers). The screen protector is also very easy to apply, so a bonus of sorts along with the cute cat paw print thumb grip caps!

For just less then S$10, you not only get the casing, but a tempered glass cover and two joy con grip covers as well. How’s that for a steal?

Of course, if you want something more cuter you can always get the decorated TPU covers for under S$10 (without the screen protector).

3) External Memory Card for less than $20 / $80

The Switch comes with only 32GB worth of space, and by the time you start it up, at least another 4GB or so are taken up by the system. So getting extra storage is key. While you can still buy games on cartridges for the Switch, some titles might need extra storage, and if you intend on going digital then all the more you need a Memory Card.
You can get a 64GB card for less than S$20 and a 256GB card is less than $80! We got the 128GB card and it is working great.

4) Joy-Con Controller Handles & Joy-Con Game Handle Steering wheel  for less than $10

If you are having fun in multiplayer, it would be good get some joy-con controller handles or steering wheel for games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe which allow to use each Joy-Con on its side. With the handles or steering wheels, you would be able to hold it like a controller or wheel (depending on your preference). This makes it easier to play as it adds it adds some size and weight to each Joy-Con; making the shoulder buttons far easier to press.

For less than $5 you can get a pair of controller handles (that's double the value!) and for less than $6 you can get a pair of steering wheels. Perfect when you are on a budget.

5) Extra Joy-Cons for less than $60

If you want to play with your family or friends, then you definitely would need to get an extra pair of joy-cons. But what to do if the original joy-cons are too pricey? Well, that would be where the Dobe joy-cons come in pretty handy (and for almost half the price of the original Nintendo joy-cons too).

Connection is easy and fast. It is thicker than the original joy-cons, so it has a better grip then the original joy-cons. The only thing is that there are no cases that will fit this joy-con, and charging is via its Type C port. But at this pricing it is perfect to get as a spare or for your 2nd / 3rd players.
