Nintendo Switch Black Friday deal

A few days ago, we questioned whether it was a good time to buy a Nintendo Switch with a 4K upgrade reportedly coming in 2021. We stand by our reasoning if you’re paying full price but even we can’t resist a great deal. As part of its 21st-anniversary sale, eBay is selling discounted Nintendo Switch consoles at $385 a pop from 2:00pm today. This is the second drop for eBay’s Nintendo Switch deal, and there are only 250 consoles left in stock. You also need to be an eBay Plus member, so you’re signed up to the 30-day free trial before 2:00pm.

These are likely to fly off the shelf, so make sure you’re at eBay’s deals page at 2:00pm sharp with your credit card at the ready if you’re keen for a bargain.

Nintendo Switch consoles still hold a premium RRP of $499.95, and while you can typically find them for around $450 via online retailers like Amazon and Catch, $385 is still a healthy 20% off the regular retail price.

In addition to the Nintendo Switch console, eBay’s deal throws in a bonus carry case for punters who jump on the deal at 2pm.

If you do miss out on the Nintendo Switch bargain, be sure to keep an eye on eBay Plus over the next 21 days. There are loads of discounts around the 21% mark on a huge range of products from brands like Nespresso, Toys R Us, Appliance Central, New Balance, Lenovo, UGG Express and many more.

What is eBay Plus?

eBay Plus is essentially eBay’s version of Amazon Prime, an online shopping subscription that gets you a bunch of perks, like free or discounted shipping, and exclusive flash deals. There’s a free 30-day trial if you want to take it for a whirl. While you’re at it, take a look at all the perks an Amazon Prime subscription offers.
