You may want to sign up with a free price tracker tool, like Visualping, to be automatically notified of Black Friday Nintendo Switch deals from any web page you want.

Here’s everything you need to know about Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals, where to get them, when they’ll drop and how to get alerts so you can easily beat the rush and save big this year.

Will There Be Nintendo Switch Black Friday Deals 2022?

Yes! The longer a console is available on store shelves, the more likely retailers will chop the price tag and offer big discounts and bundle deals – especially during Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Plus, with the launch of the Nintendo Switch OLED in October 2021, it is even more likely that the older Switch models will be marked down this Black Friday.

Knock-out Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals this year include bundles, cheap Switch games, and discounted Switch accessories like Joy-Con pairs, charging stations and Switch Pro controllers.

Can I Expect Deals on the Console, Itself?

There’s a chance Black Friday deals will include the console, on its own, but it’s difficult to know for sure.That’s because, while the Nintendo Switch has been out for two years, stock has still been too inconsistent to confidently expect slashed price tags.

Typically, when demand is still relatively high for a console, you won’t see discounts quite yet.

On one hand, last year saw essentially no deals on the console, so 2022 is looking like an awesome opportuntiy for the first Nintendo Switch console sales. On the other, considering supply chain issues, it would be unusual to see discounts on such a sought-after item with unpredictable stock levels.

Regardless, this Black Friday will definitely see a series of great bundle deals, deals on games and accessories worth checking out.

Are Black Friday Deals the Best for the Nintendo Switch?

Yes! Black Friday and Cyber Monday are generally the best times of the year to shop for in-demand video game consoles, bundles, games and accessories.

Last year, due to supply chain shortages and a spike in demand from everyone being locked up, Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals were next to nonexistent. This year, then, will likely see some of the best Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals available yet.

The longer a video game console has been on the market, the better its Black Friday deals tend to be, making the odds for shoppers this year even better.

When will Black Friday Nintendo Switch Deals 2022 Begin?

Officially, Black Friday Nintendo Switch deals kick-off November 25.

But, leading up to the big day, there will be a cascade of early Black Friday discounts – starting as early as mid October.

Due to supply chain shortages and limited stock concerns, retailers are launching their Black Friday deals much earlier. shoppers shouldn’t wait until late November to start scouring for the deals they want – the best Nintendo Switch deals will likely run out of stock by then, if not substantially earlier.

But it’s difficult to predict exactly when the best Black Friday Nintendo Switch deals will go live. Sometimes, the highest value deals drop later in the holiday season, in mid to late November – other times, it’s October.
