Find the best deals for Nintendo Switch bundles, Nintendo Switch Lite and video games during Black Friday 2019 from Thanksgiving to Cyber Monday 2019.We will search the all of the ads of retailers including Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, Kohls and Game Stop to discover the best discounts and biggest savings on this amazing video game console made by Nintendo.Whether you are considering buying it as a Christmas gift or a gift for yourself, Black Friday and Cyber Monday will offer a great chance to get the lowest price on the Nintendo Switch this holiday season.
BEST DEAL WE SAW ADVERTISED DURING BLACK FRIDAY 2018– This was the link during Black Friday to get a $50 gift card with purchase of any Nintendo Switch, Xbox One or Playstation 4 system at GameStop. This is on top of their deals, like the $299 Nintendo Switch. Terms and Conditions: Starts Wednesday at 9 PM. Excludes Playstation 4 Spider-Man Bundle and Xbox One S 1TB Minecraft Bundle. Limit One per Customer.
BEST DEALS SO FAR IN 2019 – Over Prime Day 2019, Amazon offered the best deal on the Nintendo Switch console alone. It sold at its base price of $299 but kicked in a free $35 eShop card. That was the same deal that Amazon and Nintendo offered last year during Black Friday 2018.
The best deal during Prime Day was actually a bundle offered by Walmart. For only $30 more than the regularly priced Nintendo Switch, you got your choice of one of five games as well as your choice of either a portable power bank or a Paw Patrol carrying case / screen protector kit. The game choices were Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Party, Super Mario Odyssey, Breath of the Wild, or Splatoon 2. This Nintendo Switch bundle is regularly priced at $374, so it was a savings of $45.
These are actually pretty great deals on the Switch because Nintendo rarely discounts it. It is its youngest, most popular video game system right now. However, that is changing and this may create an opportunity to see some bigger Black Friday deals on it in the future.
In mid-July 2019, Nintendo announced the Nintendo Switch Lite, a device for handheld game play of Nintendo Switch games. It will be released on September 20th with a suggested retail price of $199.99. The Lite is smaller than the original Switch and does not have a kickstand or video output. The new device can play the entire library of Switch gmes that support handheld mode. If you want to play in either tabletop mode or TV mode, then you will need to buy the regular Switch rather than the Lite – as it does not support it.
If the Switch Lite proves popular, retailers may decide to offer additional discounts on their original consoles in order to move them off the shelf and give them more space to put the hot new item this year.
Also, Sony’s PS5 and Microsoft’s Xbox Project Scarlett appear to be right around the corner, so this could be the last year of the dominance of the Nintendo Switch before the next generation of gaming consoles hit the market. If you can wait around another year, you might get an even better deal. But who really wants to do that? We will be looking for deals on the Playstation 5 and Xbox 2 next year. So come on Nintendo – help us out this year!
So what is our prediction for the best price on the Nintendo Switch this year? We think you could see up to a $75 free gift card with purchase of the console as businesses try to beat the GameStop deal from last year or a $329 Switch bundle with free game as companies match Amazon’s Prime Day special.
We don’t think that there will be much discounting of the Nintendo Switch Lite during Black Friday 2019 or Cyber Monday. The best you will probably find will be a $15-$25 gift card free with purchase. At the already low starting price point of $199, it is unlikely that they offer the same sort of big discounts that you will see on older gaming consoles. We will check around, but if you see a deal that involves Kohl’s cash or something for $179 – you should probably grab it straight away!
Should you wait until Cyber Monday 2019?
This is a classic dilemma and after watching the video game market for a few years we highly recommend that you grab online deals that are offered on Thanksgiving Day or during Black Friday morning. It is unlikely that retailers offer better prices on their consoles during Cyber Monday. Instead, the biggest sales are almost always over the Thursday – Friday period. Some stores will re-rollout their savings online, but you never know. Better to grab it and play with it all weekend then wait and miss out.

Price Predictions for Black Friday 2017
New video game consoles were heavily discounted last year.So we anticipate that the Switch, which will have been out on the market for nearly nine months, will follow a similar path.
The biggest discount on the Nintendo Switch (standard package, no games) will likely be a $50 discount from the retail price of $299.99 to a Black Friday price of $249.99.This is a fairly standard discount on consoles during the Thanksgiving weekend sales.Because the Switch has been out for a number of months, you also may see discounts on used/pre-owned systems from GameStop.Some retailers may opt to charge the regular price but provide a store gift card instead.
It will be a few more weeks until we start seeing the first Black Friday ads.We will be adding Switch prices here once they are leaked or released.We encourage you to stop back soon to check out updates to this page.
