If you’re looking for a Switch or Switch Lite system this holiday season, you may come up disappointed when it comes to steep discounts. However, if you’re hunting for a deal on the Nintendo Switch Online service, you’re in luck this Black Friday.
Switch Online is required in order to play multiplayer Switch games online, including Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and Splatoon 2. It also offers access to a bunch of classic NES and SNES games for free as long as you’re a member, and these even support new online multiplayer functionality. Some of the best games from both platforms are represented, including The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Metroid, and Super Mario World. Furthermore, there are periodic bonuses provided for Switch Online members in certain games, including Smash Ultimate.
A Switch Online subscription normally runs you $20, but you can get it for $15 this Black Friday over at Target. Read on for a look at the deals.
Best Switch Online deals for Black Friday 2019
Membership only deals
The best (and only) Nintendo Switch Online subscription deal announced so far is at Target. You will be able to buy a 12-month subscription for $15, five bucks off the list price. That’s a reasonably good deal, and it’d be surprising to see other retailers offer much better considering the relatively low price of the membership to begin with.
If you’re more interested in a Switch Online family plan, which normally go for $35 and support up to eight users, it’s likely we’ll see that discounted as well. Target has a track record of offering Switch Online family memberships for $28 during major sales, so it’s possible that deal will make an appearance at Target or elsewhere during Black Friday weekend.
Membership bundled with games
Walmart will have the Overwatch: Legendary Edition on sale for $25, which comes with a three-month subscription of Switch Online. One other game to look out for that could be on sale is the retail edition of Tetris 99 (which comes with the paid DLC). The Switch Online exclusive comes with a 12-month subscription of Switch Online for $30. It’s possible that bundle will get discounted on Black Friday too.
Where to find Switch Online deals during Black Friday
We’ll be updating this article as more Nintendo Switch Online Black Friday deals are announced, but keep an eye on Walmart, Best Buy, GameStop, Amazon, and the Eshop, the Switch’s digital storefront.
In addition to gaining access to online multiplayer, Nintendo Switch Online subscribers can play dozens of classic NES games and 20 SNES games, including Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, and Super Metroid. Switch Online members also get cloud saves for most games, which is an incredibly convenient feature.
