This Nintendo Switch deal might be the best this Black Friday

Amazon cuts the RRP by 11%

Last Black Friday, I finally caved and bought a Nintendo Switch with Mario Odyssey. Reader, it was one of the best purchases I made all year, and I’ve been positively evangelical about getting my friends to get their own.
The problem has been the price. The Switch is just too popular, and there’s no incentive for Nintendo to cut prices when it already sells every unit it makes at full price. Even last year’s bargain was £300 with one game. The truth is you may not manage too much better this year either.
Still, you will have me beat if you buy today. Amazon has cut the price of the neon red/blue or grey Nintendo Switch by 11%, meaning you can have one delivered for £249.99. That’s not an enormous saving, but it does mean you can essentially make your own bundle and beat my price from a year ago. I’d strongly recommend adding Super Mario Odyssey to your cart for an extra £39.99. It really is the best thing I’ve played in years, and Vaughn agreed in his glowing review.
It’s possible, of course, that Amazon or someone else will end up offering an incredible Nintendo Switch deal on Black Friday itself, and you may not want to jump in now just in case this deal is bettered. Bit of advice for you on that front – consider hedging your bets, and putting in an order for this deal now, but setting delivery for a week’s time. That way you definitely will have bagged yourself a Nintendo Switch, but can easily cancel if something better comes along before the clock hits midnight on Cyber Monday
