It's likely to be a big holiday season for the Nintendo Switch, due to the release of Pokemon Sword and Shield. You probably have someone on your grocery list who wants (or maybe you are) a Nintendo Switch or Switch Lite. We're here to help you fulfill your holiday's wishes by putting together the best deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch consoles and accessories. And with more and more retailers releasing their Black Friday ads, we'll include the best discounts here.
Let us publish the disappointing news immediately. Judging by the early Black Friday ads we've seen, the Nintendo Switch will not get a nice discount this Christmas or even a really great package. Instead, Nintendo has provided retailers with the same Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Switch bundle from the previous Black Friday. And yes, it still contains the launch model Switch, not the upgraded switch with better battery life, which was in stores a few months ago. Although the Switch Lite plays a prominent role in ads, so far it is only that: An advertisement for the switch, which is available only for 200 US dollar, without significant price reduction.
That does not mean that there are no special offers for the switch accessory, though. In fact, we've seen countless accessories in the various Black Friday ads, and you can expect even more accessibility when retailers like Walmart, Amazon, and GameStop release their Black Friday ads. And if the Best Buy ad is an indication, there will also be some really great offers for Switch games.
Best Deals on Black Friday Nintendo Switch Consoles
Nintendo Switch with Free Digital Copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Screen Protector | $ 300
This switch bundle was offered in 2018 and is pretty good on the surface. You get the switch and a great game, which is now regularly offered for around $ 50. Note, however, that this is not the updated switch with a longer battery life. It is the starting model. If you love Mario Kart and do not care about the longer battery life, this is a solid offer. Otherwise, it may be better to buy the newer model for the same price and wait for the sale of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. We highlight the Best Buy bundle here because the dealer uses a screen protector. However, expect this bundle to be available from most major retailers as it is an official Nintendo offer. Maybe a smart retailer will throw in more than just a screen protector.
Nintendo Switch (New Model) with Carrying Case and Charging Station for $ 90 Cabbage's Cash | $ 320 (
$ 345 )
If you do not really want to buy Nintendo's official bundle, we know that Kohl's own bundle with the updated switch has a longer battery life. For $ 320 you get the Switch, a carrying case (worth $ 20) and the popular PowerA Joy-Con loading dock (worth $ 25). The real raffle here is that you can spend $ 90 Kill's in the weeks after Black Friday.
