There will likely be plenty of bargains to be had this Black Friday, but you’ll want to act quickly as the Nintendo Switch remains popular

Friday, 27th November 2020, 10:59 am

This year, Black Friday (one of the most important shopping dates on the UK’s calendar following a year of coronavirus-induced retail uncertainty) will fall on Friday 27 November. Many major outlets will be offering deals throughout that weekend, as well as before and after.

Despite releasing over three years ago, and this year facing competition from the recently released PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo’s Switch console remains one of the more sought after products in the run-up to Christmas.

There will almost certainly plenty of bargains to be had come Black Friday, but to get the best out of it, you'll have to move fast: at the time of writing, we’ve already seen shoppers snap up mouth-watering deals, with some retailers’ stock of the console already depleted!

Here's a quick guide on where to find the best Nintendo Switch deals in 2020.

Aldi

Aldi isn’t the first place you might think of when searching for a new games console, but the discount supermarket this year is offering the Nintendo Switch for £229.99.

That's £50 off the standard price currently offered by most retailers, and as such, it will likely sell out remarkably quickly when it goes on sale.

This deal is expected to go live on Black Friday itself, and with deals normally appearing on the Aldi site overnight, it may be worth checking in the early hours of that morning.

Amazon

Amazon have a wide range of console bundles available in time for Black Friday, packaging various games in with the Switch itself.

Technically, none of the below are part of the online retailer’s giant pre-Black Friday sale, but since items can be added and removed from that promotion at a moment’s notice, even sharper price cuts could be introduced without warning.

The cheapest price currently available on the original model of the Switch is £309.99. That may be above the console’s usual RRP, but in this instance it does come packed with three games: Sports Party, Rayman Legends and Monopoly.

The Switch Lite can be grabbed from Amazon for just £229.99, a bundled that comes packed with the same three games.

Argos

Argos’ Black Friday sales are expected to start on the ‘official’ date of 27 November, though the retailer has already started its toy sale, which runs throughout the month of November.

ASDA

One of the most eye-catching Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals of 2020 comes from ASDA, who are offering up savings of £40 on the original model of the console.

The retailer is selling the original version of the Switch for £239.99, down from the console’s usual £279.99 RRP.

ASDA also has the Lite model of the Switch in Turquoise, Grey, Coral, and Yellow for £169.99, a saving of £30.

Unfortunately, all of those deals seem to be out of stock at the time of writing, as this really is a formidable bargain. It's worth keeping an eye on ASDA’s stock through the above links, as if the machines come back into availability, they’ll likely fly out quickly again.

GAME

GAME’s Black Friday deals launched on Friday 20 November, a week ahead of the big event.

There are bargains to snag on PS4, Xbox One and Switch consoles, and the retailer is promising its “best gaming deals” this year.

Nintendo

You could also head direct to the source for your shiny new Switch console, and Nintendo’s Official UK Store is offering its own deals now Black Friday has rolled around.

Tesco

Not to be outdone by Aldi, Tesco are offering Nintendo Switch Neon and Grey models for £229.

The deal will be available through until Black Friday itself (though stock likely won’t last that long so you’ll want to move quickly). Not only that, but there's already discounts on major games like FIFA 21.
