Aldi likely has the best Nintendo Switch Black Friday deal this year

Bargain hunters could snag a Switch for less than £230.

Aldi, of all places, has a real treat for deal-loving gamers over the Black Friday period, offering the Nintendo Switch for £229.99.

Yes, not content with selling rubber kayaks, inflatable Christmas trees and foam softball bats, the budget supermarket will be selling Nintendo's latest console for a whopping £50 off the standard price currently offered by most retailers. The offer was first spotted over at HotUKDeals and we have since confirmed with Aldi this Black Friday Switch deal is legit.

For those who have yet to take the plunge on the Switch, this is indeed a great deal for the base version of the console, which usually sells for around £280.

However, shoppers who love to comb through Aldi's middle aisles won't find it in-store - it's available online only via its Black Friday webpage from Friday 27th November. Eager beavers who don't want to miss out might want to stay up into the early morning hours of the 27th, as the deal may go live sometime overnight.

And with a hefty discount of 18% off the RRP, we're sure this offer will be gone in no time at all. Our tip? Grab a coffee and keep smashing that refresh button. If you miss the Aldi deal, have no fear - we've got you covered with our dedicated page featuring all the best Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals.


Nintendo still reports strong sales of the Switch in 2020, and there have been supply shortages across the COVID-19 pandemic, so it's unlikely you'll find a bigger discount off its base model anywhere else.

However, thrifty customers might want to see what other retailers are doing, such as Amazon, Currys PC World, GAME and Argos.

These vendors usually offer decent gaming bundles, meaning you can likely snag a Switch plus a game or two for not much more than the price of the standard console. These games may include recent AAA releases, including Pokémon Sword/Shield, Super Mario 3D All-Stars or Mario Kart 8.

And be sure to keep checking the Jelly Deals Twitter for the latest deals and offers across Black Friday and beyond.
