Does Nintendo have Black Friday sales?

Yes, Nintendo participates in Black Friday and is your best chance to grab a Switch system at its lowest price. Earlier in the year Nintendo was experiencing Switch inventory shortages due to high demand, but they’ve restocked just in time for the holidays.

Does Nintendo have Cyber Monday deals?

Yes, Nintendo extends their Black Friday offers until Cyber Monday, but you shouldn’t wait until then. Switch prices are unlikely to drop lower than their Black Friday discounts. Flash sales on select video game titles could happen, though, and are worth your attention.

Does Nintendo have early-access Black Friday deals?

Nintendo itself hasn’t announced early deals for Black Friday 2021 just yet, but other electronics retailers already have. Looking at retailers like Amazon and Currys could be a good bet in finding some early savings on Nintendo products.

Does Nintendo offer a student discount?

Yes - but only on occasion. The last time Nintendo gave a 10% student discount through StudentBeans was in the month of September. Stay up to date on the Nintendo newsletter to ensure you don’t miss the next time this student promotion comes around.

Keep in mind that customers are responsible for return shipping costs.

What’s the difference between the Nintendo Switch and the Nintendo Switch Lite?

The Nintendo Switch is a hybrid home console/handheld system, while the Switch Lite is strictly a handheld system.

Meanwhile, the Switch Lite controls are integrated into the system itself; additional Joy-Cons must be purchased for multiplayer sessions. Read about all the differences between the two systems, here.
