Are Black Friday Nintendo Switch deals the best time to buy one?

Updated on 24 November 2023

Updated on November 24, 2023 - If you've been thinking about owning a Nintendo Switch for a long time, but always put off by the high price tag attached, then you're probably looking forward to Black Friday to secure a good deal. But what would you say if you didn't have to wait for Black Friday at all? We give you the most important information and tips to get the best deal for your Nintendo Switch on Black Friday!

What Black Friday Nintendo Switch deals can we expect this year in 2023?

Buying a Nintendo Switch console during Black Friday may seem like the obvious decision to get it at the cheapest price, however it's important to note that Black Friday and other sales periods alike aren't always the most cost-effective way. Below we've highlighted the different offers on currently, to buy a Nintendo Switch now with early Black Friday deals (price check on 24/11/2023):

  • Argos: buy a bundle of Nintendo Switch OLED Console, Mario Kart 8 and a three-month Switch Online membership for £299.99 instead of £346.97

  • Very: buy a Nintendo Switch in Neon, plus Super Mario Bros. Wonder for £259 instead of £299

  • Argos: buy the Nintendo Switch Lite Animal Crossing Bundle - Turquoise for £189.99 instead of £269.97

  • Amazon: buy the Nintendo Switch, plus Nintendo Switch Sports (pre-installed) and 3 months Nintendo Switch Online Membership for £259 instead of £296.98

  • Smyth Toys: buy the Nintendo Switch OLED plus one select game, £329.99 instead of £349.98

    • Receive 1 free game with your Switch OLED where you can choose between these popular game titles; Pikmin 4, Kirby’s Return to Dreamland Deluxe, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Generally retailers like to bundle Nintendo Switch offers with free games and limited online memberships to sweeten the deal, which means we can't expect any real drastic slashing of Nintendo Switch prices, but rather more add-ons. If this still drives the price a tad-too-high, then you could easily buy a cheap refurbished Nintendo Switch console from Back Market at 30% - 50% discount off the price of new:

What's better is that all devices sold on Back Market come with 1-year warranty and 30-days to return the device hassle free.

If you find the Black Friday offers this year not as great as you hoped for, then don't wait for anymore disappointment, and head on over to Back Market for a better deal (before stocks run out!)

Will the Nintendo Switch get cheaper on Black Friday?

The simple answer is: probably yes, but by how much is difficult to say. After all, the goal of Black Friday is to offer extremely good deals in order to achieve the strongest possible sales. Unfortunately, this also leads to extreme overconsumption, as customers are tempted to replace devices that are still working and to buy new products that they don't actually need.❌

That's why we don't offer any special Black Friday deals for our consoles and games, only our "standard deals" that are available throughout the year. So if your old console is broken or you really want to own a Nintendo Switch, take a look around the used or refurbished market, and more often than not - they will be cheaper than normal retailer discounts! 🔧

👉 So you can protect your wallet and the environment: win-win! At Back Market you can also find the Nintendo Switch and other consoles at their usual low prices this Black Friday 2023. 💸💸

How much does a Switch cost on Black Friday?

It's hard to predict how much the Black Friday price for a Nintendo Switch will change. One thing we can say for sure, though, is that you can find deals on a Nintendo Switch for under £200 at Back Market.

So you don't have to wait until Black Friday, you can strike now with a great price! 🔥

Will there be a Nintendo Switch Black Friday Sale?

With the supply of Nintendo Switch consoles dwindling at the moment, it can be difficult to find really good deals. However, if you look around on the used or refurbished market, you will definitely find what you are looking for.

  • Nintendo Switch Gray

  • Nintendo Switch Black

  • Nintendo Switch blue/red - Classic

  • Nintendo Switch green/pink

Are there also refurbished games for the Nintendo Switch?

A legitimate question! Even the best Nintendo Switch is useless without the right games. Then it's perfect that these are also available in refurbished condition on Back Market! Browse through our offers and equip your new, old Black Friday Nintendo Switch with a selection of games directly.

🎮 These are some of the most popular games for the Nintendo Switch:

  • Super Mario Odyssey

  • Yoshi's designed world

  • Pokemon: Sword / Pokemon: Shield

  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

  • Crash Team Racing Nitro Fueled

  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Should I get a Nintendo Switch Lite for this Black Friday?

We don't care much about Black Friday, because when it comes to saving money, we've got you covered - all year round. If you travel a lot, but still want to connect your TV every now and then for a better gaming experience, you should stick with the original switch, because only this has a corresponding connection for the controller.

The Lite version doesn't offer this feature, nor does it lack the HD vibration and IR camera! However, the Nintendo Switch Lite scores better with less weight, better haptics and overall more handiness. Also, in contrast to the Nintendo Switch, it is somewhat cheaper with prices starting from £144 (price check on 26/10/2023).

Should I get a Nintendo Switch OLED on Black Friday?

The Nintendo Switch OLED is not only the most advanced Switch Console of the Switch line-up, but it's also the most expensive! With this model you get some noticeable benefits above the others such as:

  • Bigger screen - larger screen of 7 inches vs the 6.2 inches of the classic Switch, and 5.5 inches of the Switch Lite.

  • OLED technology - improved colour scheme than the LCD displays of the older models.

  • Better speakers - larger, more powerful, and clearer sound in comparison to the other Switch models.

  • Longer batter life - not only does the battery last longer against the other models, but it also generates less heat.

  • Improved tabletop feature - with a more studier stand, the Switch OLED can be set up at different angles to give you greater flexibility with your gaming experience.

  • Increased storage space - OLED comes with a 64GB storage space instead of 32GB that's equipped on the classic and Lite Switch versions.

The Switch OLED generally retails at £309.99 (price taken from the Nintendo store), which is £20 more than a refurbished model on Back Market. Based on the early Black Friday Nintendo Switch offers mentioned above, we can't see further price drops happening except game add-ons and free limited online memberships.

Despite the price tag, an OLED does come with a few neat bells and whistles above the others, but you can own it cheaper than anywhere else (and at anytime, not just on Black Friday) when you shop for one at Back Market, which will work just as good as new, but provide good karma knowing that you've helped the planet (and your wallet too!)
