I do not know how much better of a sale/discount I can realistically expect to see around Black Friday/Cyber Monday. Personally I would rather get just the console at a discounted price instead of paying $300 for both the console and some bundle since I do have some eShop credit collecting dust.

At the same time I am not in a rush to get the Switch since a friend is busy with his Masters program and Dragon Quest XI while I am playing through Final Fantasy XIV so Marvel Ultimate Alliance could wait another month or so.

Comments and opinions are appreciated,

Thank you

I don't think it will really get too much better. Maybe old stock of the OG, but that's a weird thing to advertise.

Well that was quick. Seems that $24 off coupon already expired. Coulda sworn it was just available few hours ago.

I've only owned my Switch for a couple of months, but the impression I get is that Nintendo stuff rarely goes on (much of a) sale. Your best bet may be to ask the sales person if they can do a better price on any games you buy with the console.

That sucks, but keep looking around. Perhaps it’ll pop up again. At $276, I would definitely snag it. The price won’t get much lower for a new console.
Gotta go Fast! Add me on Switch!!

Last Black Friday, the best deal you could get was $300 for a Switch with Mario Kart 8, so I'd expect something similar this year so it'll depend on how much you value the free game.
Don't forget to bring a towel!

Seems to be back but only with the neon blue and red joy-con version. Is that version/colours suppose to be the official version of the Switch?

Yes. And yeah, $276 is a steal. That's about the same price I got mine for on eBay back in February and it had only been used once. That price for a never used brand new Switch is great.
Always bet on me.

You're definitely going to get a better value than that during black Friday.

For just the console?
