Nintendo Switch Black Friday 2019: Where are the best sales? [Update]
Bundles and standalone deals for the must-have portable console.
With a solid year of releases and a spiffy, lighter hardware refresh, the Nintendo Switch will be hot property this Christmas. Nintendo is notoriously reluctant to slash prices much, but there are still good Black Friday deals to be had, particularly if you're looking for a bundle with a game thrown in.
Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals
Here are our picks of the best Nintendo Switch deals so far:
- Amazon has come in strong with the Nintendo Switch and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (download code) bundle for $359.10. That's a huge saving on its own, even before you add in the bundled Mario Kart download.
- You can also get the same Nintendo Switch and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (download code) for $399 at JB Hi-Fi, which is the equivalent of getting a free game and $70 off the usual RRP of $469. Given that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is basically a must-own, there's a lot of value here.
- Big W is offering the same bundle as JB Hi-Fi above but for $429, so that's $30 more expensive. It might still be an option if there's no JB Hi-Fi nearby or you're looking for some extra Woolworths Rewards points.
- If you don't want a pack-in game, Target has the Nintendo Switch console (2019 version with better battery life) for $369, which is a nice saving of $100. You'll struggle to find a better price. Also, heads up: Target's deal starts a day early on the 28 November.
We don't yet have EB Games' Black Friday price, but Nintendo has confirmed that, like JB Hi-Fi, the retailer will be offering a free Mario Kart 8 Deluxe download code with all Switch models (excluding Switch Lite).
Nintendo Switch Lite Black Friday deals
Given that the newer, lighter, significantly less portable version of the Switch is so new, we aren't expecting massive deals this Black Friday. That said, Amazon is currently offering Switch Lite for $294 (available in turquoise, yellow and grey), a saving of $35.
