Black Friday is going to be even more amorphous than usual this year, with COVID-19 dramatically limiting the wisdom of holding in-store promotions and more deal-seeking going online than ever before. And that means deals are going live early, with plenty of deals on TVs, games and the like at plenty of retailers. Now, we’re getting the big deal on the Nintendo Switch going live, so you’re going to want to scoop this one up as soon as you can.
The deal is more or less the same as last year, with some minor changes. You still get the Nintendo Switch console with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe installed for $299.99, but this year it’s the updated model with improved battery life. You also get 3 months od Nintendo Switch online, for good measure. It only costs $3.99 to buy it on its own, but hey: every little bit counts.
I’m seeing this deal going live at Target and Best Buy, but keep an eye on other retailers as well:

Note that this is only a deal in terms of the free game: it’s an excellent game, which you should get anyways, but other than that this is the same as MSRP on a regular day. Which, to be honest, is already sort of a deal: the Switch has been hard to find ever since lockdowns began earlier in the year and people started snatching up a console fresh off the release of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. So if you’re looking to get one, now is a good time.
And I’d highly recommend a Switch under most any circumstances. It’s a great console with some of the best games ever made on it, and it’s basically the only console that takes local multiplayer seriously in any way. It’s also home to my current working game of the year, which is Hades. All in all, you really can’t go wrong picking one up, though I would also recommend snagging a memory card to go with it.
