How to get $50 off Nintendo Switch OLED at Big W
The Nintendo Switch OLED video game console retails for $539, but here's a sneaky trick to get $50 off at Big W.
The Nintendo Switch OLED is destined to be one of the hottest gifts this Christmas. Featuring a vastly improved 7-inch OLED display, double the inbuilt storage, a dock with a wired LAN port and a new adjustable stand, it's a significant upgrade on the original Switch console.
The new console is compatible with all existing Nintendo Switch games, with the exception of LABO kits. Best of all, it actually makes your games look better. (You can learn more about the differences in our Nintendo Switch vs Nintendo Switch OLED guide.)

The Nintendo Switch OLED will set you back $539 in Australia. That's the price at all major retailers, including Big W. However, there's currently a sneaky hack to score $50 off at this store.

Instead of buying the console directly from Big W, head to its official eBay store. You can then nab $50 off the RRP with the coupon code "SPENDNSAVEOCT".

This is the cheapest price we've seen from an Australian retailer. Indeed, a lot of online stores are selling it for $599.95, which is a mark-up of $60. If you want to get the console for the best price possible, you're unlikely to find a better deal than this.
You will need to be quick, though – the deal is set to expire on 14 October. The price will then go back to $539.
