This story is part of Holiday Gift Guide 2021, our list of ideas, by topic, by recipient and by price, to help you discover the perfect gift.

Black Friday is fast approaching, and news about which sales to expect are rolling in from various retailers, including Nintendo. There won’t be any big discounts on Nintendo’s new Switch OLED this holiday season. Shipping issues and chip manufacturing delays have made the new system more difficult to track down than its predecessor. If you’re in the market for one, it’s important to buy early.

Nintendo isn’t letting down Black Friday shoppers, though. There are already an array of holiday deals for the 2021 season. The Switch bundled with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the big gift option. while Nintendo also teased $20 discounts on a variety of “select games.” Since that earlier announcement, though, we’ve seen some bigger, better Switch game bargains already hit.

Nintendo

For 2021, Nintendo has revived an old favorite: The Switch bundled with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and a three-month subscription to Switch Online, all for $300. Once the three months are over, the Switch Online membership will automatically renew. You can renew the membership for $4 a month on a month-to-month basis. Prepaying will get you the subscription at $8 for three months or a full year for $20. 

This isn’t the new Switch OLED with a larger screen, but considering the game and Switch Online are being thrown in for free, it’s not half bad. This is already sold out at Target, so we’re including the Best Buy link here.
