The Nintendo Switch is a versatile fan favorite for gamers, which makes it a popular holiday gift. Like other Nintendo products, it rarely goes on sale, which is why Black Friday is a great time to find Switch deals as they tend to be bundled with some popular games. The original Nintendo Switch goes for $300, but right now you can get a bundle with a Switch console, a digital copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and a three-month Switch Online individual membership, all for the price of a standard standalone Switch.

There is a newer OLED version of the Switch available, but if you're looking for a good starter pack, this is a great way to go. Most of the time the console is sold by itself, without any game. With this bundle, not only do you have a game ready to play right away, but it's also one of the best Nintendo Switch games around. It's also a multiplayer game, and the Switch's Joy-Cons mean two people can play (or four in a pinch), so it's perfect for families.

Plus, with the included three-month subscription to Nintendo Switch Online, you're unlocking endless gaming potential. It includes a lot of retro Nintendo games and you get to play online with gamers around the world.
