How to get the best Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals

Have a Nintendo Switch gamer on your holiday shopping list? Black Friday sees plenty of deals on Nintendo games and accessories, and in order to scoop them up, shoppers should start researching deals now. 

While it’s hard to predict which Nintendo Switch products will go on sale this Black Friday, a look at last year’s trends can help shoppers anticipate this year’s sales. Early research isn’t the only way to get a leg up on Nintendo Switch deals on Black Friday, though. From adding products to carts early to leveraging discounts, there are several ways to save big during the hot holiday shopping event.

How to save with Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals

Do your research

To save money on Nintendo Switch games and accessories, begin by brushing up on the differences among the three Nintendo Switch models.

  • The original Nintendo Switch may be available in cost-effective bundle packs featuring top games and accessories for Black Friday.
  • The Nintendo Switch Lite is only compatible with Switch games that have handheld mode. Shoppers should confirm the specs on an item before purchasing. 
  • The brand-new Nintendo Switch OLED, released Oct. 8, is unlikely to go on sale for Black Friday. However, there may be sales on compatible accessories.


Sign up for deal alerts

Stay on top of Black Friday announcements and deal alerts by signing up for emails or push notifications from retailers. Amazon and Kohl’s, both of which sell Nintendo Switch products, may send out Black Friday news or preview sales as early as the beginning of November. The BestReviews email newsletter also keeps shoppers in the loop for upcoming Black Friday deals, including those on video games and accessories.

Add Nintendo products to carts early

Product availability is fleeting on Black Friday, so to get the best deals before they’re gone, shoppers have begun adding Nintendo Switch games and accessories to their carts in advance. Once a deal drops, shoppers can check out quickly before the product sells out. It’s worth adding out-of-stock items because many retailers will notify shoppers when products in their cart are back in stock.
