Dell has the only Nintendo Switch OLED Black Friday deal we’ve seen
November 24, 2022
This Dell Black Friday deal starts early: Dell is offering the Nintendo Switch OLED with White Joy-Cons, the recently released Splatoon 3 game, and another wireless controller, all for just $399.99. This deal is cheaper than buying the Nintendo Switch OLED ($349.99 MSRP) and the Splatoon 3 game ($59.99 MSRP) alone, so you’re essentially getting the controller for free. This also happens to be the only Switch OLED deal currently available.
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 it’s unlikely to see a huge price drop. It is an excellent game that is family friendly, which means that everyone, including children, can enjoy this game. It also has fun local and online multiplayer modes so everyone can join in on the action at the same time. The Wireless MGC Switchplate Controller is an aftermarket controller that normally retails for $39.99. It has two magnetic switchplate covers so you can choose black or white colors, dual rumble motors, adjustable analog sticks and mappable back buttons. It is compact and sized for smaller hands. Overall, it’s a welcome addition.

If you don’t think you 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 very similar last Black Friday. Nintendo isn’t exactly an innovator when it comes to Black Friday deals, but this is still by far 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 plan to use the gift card, you basically only pay $264.99 for the Nintendo Switch console. If you’re having trouble finding ways to use that $35 gift card, the simplest thing to do is just buy some Nintendo Switch games or accessories. You might think that Dell only sells PCs, but they actually have a pretty healthy selection of popular Nintendo Switch games and gear.
Is the Switch OLED worth it over the Switch?
If you can afford the premium of the Switch OLED over the non-OLED model, then we think it’s definitely worth the upgrade. The biggest improvement is of course the screen. The Nintendo Switch OLED has an OLED screen that provides better picture quality than the original LCD screen. It includes deeper blacks, more vivid colors and a better color gradient. The text is sharper and easier to read. The screen isn’t that much bigger (7″ on OLED versus 6.2″ on non-OLED), but it feels a lot bigger thanks to a thinner frame. Other upgrades worth mentioning are a new and improved stand, a hard-wired ethernet port on the dock, and an exclusive white Switch shell and matching Joy-Cons.
More Black Friday Nintendo Switch OLED Deals Coming?
It’s hard to say. Dell is the only vendor so far to promote Switch OLED deals for Black Friday, and it’s unlikely they’ll be running two separate ones at the same time. Outside of Black Friday, we haven’t seen the Nintendo Switch OLED for sale at all, unless you count imported models from the UK.
