As part of the Dell Black Friday, Dell has the Nintendo Switch OLED with white Joy-Cons, the recently released Splatoon 3 game, and a second wireless controller, all for just $399.99. We didn’t see many Switch OLED deals during Black Friday (and most of the deals came from Dell), so any discount is welcome. Splatoon 3 hasn’t been heavily discounted since the game came out very recently either.
Nintendo Switch OLED with Splatoon 3 and 2nd wireless controller for $399.99
Nintendo Switch OLED + Splatoon 3 game + 2nd wireless controller
Splatoon 3 came out a few months ago, so a big price drop is unlikely. It is an excellent game that is family friendly which means that everyone including kids can enjoy this game. It also has fun local and online multiplayer modes so everyone can get in on the action at the same time. The MGC Switchplate wireless controller is an aftermarket controller that normally sells for $39.99. It features two magnetic switch plate covers so you can choose black or white colors, dual rumble motors, adjustable analog sticks and assignable back buttons. It is compact and sized for smaller hands. Overall it’s a welcome addition.
Nintendo Switch with Mario Kart 8 and 3 months Switch Online membership for $299.99
Nintendo Switch console with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and 3 months of Nintendo Switch Online Bundle
If you think you don’t want the excellent OLED upgrade then the standard Nintendo Switch is still an excellent console. If this deal sounds familiar, it’s because we saw something similar last Black Friday. Nintendo isn’t exactly an innovator when it comes to Black Friday deals, but this is still the best Switch console deal we’ve seen this month. For the price of the Nintendo Switch console, you get a free copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and a 3-month Nintendo Switch Online membership.

If you intend to use the gift card, you are essentially paying on your own $264.99 for the Nintendo Switch system. If you’re struggling to find ways to spend that $35 gift card, the easiest thing to do is just buy some Nintendo Switch games or accessories. You might think Dell only sells PCs, but they actually have a pretty healthy lineup of popular Nintendo Switch games and gear.
Is the Switch OLED worth it over the Switch?
If you can afford the Switch OLED’s premium over the non-OLED model then we think it’s well worth the upgrade. The biggest improvement is of course the display. The Nintendo Switch OLED has an OLED display that offers better picture quality than the original LCD display. That includes deeper blacks, more vibrant colors and a better gradient. The text is also sharper and more readable. The screen isn’t that much bigger (7″ on the OLED versus 6.2″ on the non-OLED), but it does feel a lot bigger thanks to a thinner bezel. Other upgrades worth noting include a new and improved kickstand, a wired Ethernet port on the docking station, and an exclusive white Switch case and matching Joy-Cons.
Will there be more Black Friday Nintendo Switch OLED deals?
It’s hard to say. Dell is so far the only vendor to promote Switch OLED deals for Black Friday and they are unlikely to run two separate ones at once. Outside of Black Friday, we haven’t seen the Nintendo Switch OLED on sale at all, unless you count imported models from the UK.
