Update 24/11The last few Switch deals are popping in and out of stock - today's best is aNintendo Switch Neon with Super Mario Odyssey for £288.99 from Amazon, although you can swap that for a different game if you like. For other Switch bundles, including Pokemon Let's Go, hit up our big list of Nintendo Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals.
Update 23/11 Now that Black Friday has finally dawned, the best deal is Nintendo Switch console (Neon) with one game from Super Mario Party, Super Mario Odyssey, Super Mario Tennis Aces, Super Mario Kart 8, Splatoon 2 for £289.99. This isn't as good as the previous offers, but at least you're getting a good game for only a modest markup.
Original story: Last year, grabbing a Nintendo Switch discount was as unpredictable and frenzied as taking a swift jaunt down the Rainbow Road: flash sales that sold out in literally minutes, and little-to-no reduction on titles bearing the iconic Nintendo brand. Luckily, as the Nintendo Switch ages and rumours circulate of a new model arriving in 2019, the deals this Black Friday season have been not only more frequent, but more substantial too. Even prior to the gargantuan offers predicted to hit on the big day itself, individual Nintendo Switch consoles have dropped down to £249 at numerous retailers.
You can nab a neon Nintendo Switch with both Crash Bandicoot and Mario Kart 8 for £289 - making for the best offer on the beautifully lurid hybrid console we've tracked down so far this Black Friday. It costs £299 on AO, and signing up (as you'll need to do to make the purchase) will net you an extra £10 off - putting the total bundle down to £289. In addition, AO does a ten day price-match promise - meaning that if Switch prices on its site plummet any further you're within your rights to claim further discounts.
What makes this bundle special, is the fact that it comes with not one, but two popular games. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe retails for around £40 on average, while the Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy has sat around £30 for awhile now. As such, you'll be saving at least £30 buying this Switch as a bundle, as opposed to purchasing its parts separately.
Although there's alot to be said regarding waiting for the big day itself (Black Friday is landing on the 23rd this year), this deal makes for a substantial saving, and there is of course, that handy price match promise.
