A Switch console for just £230 is the cheapest we’ve ever seen.
A couple of weeks back Aldi surprised us all by announcing what is surely guaranteed to be the best Nintendo Switch deal this Black Friday. And it’s now been confirmed that it’ll be available from midnight – that’s just a few hours from now!
The launch timing of the store’s Black Friday deals was revealed on Twitter and in the latest Special Buy brochure. So, if you’re after a cheap Switch, you’ll want to keep an eye on the dedicated Black Friday sale page at Aldi this evening. That’s where you’ll find the Nintendo Switch for a lovely £229.99, as opposed to the usual price of £280.
This is the most recent Switch model with extended battery life, too. They’ve not got a load of older stock to dump off at a discount. Still, let’s not forget about the rumours of a more comprehensive Switch hardware upgrade that are still swirling around, though.

Anyway, Aldi will also be running a number of other very tempting Black Friday deals across gaming, tech and more. Here are some of the most interesting ones:
- Nintendo Switch for £229.99
- Nintendo Switch Lite for £169.99
- Apple Airpods (2nd Gen) for £89.99
- Hisense 55 4K UHD TV for £229.99
- Sony Bluetooth Soundbar for £79.99
- Lego Star Wars Millennium Falcon for £59.99
All of these offers will be available online only, so don’t stress about rushing to stores tomorrow morning. The only thing we have to worry about, then, is whether the Aldi website will be able to cope with the demand. Fingers crossed it holds. Going by our experiences with the PS5 and Xbox Series X launches, though, I can’t say I’m too hopeful.
Still, if you don’t manage to snag a Switch at midnight, you can also check in on our page dedicated to all the best Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals. We’re hoping more stores at least attempt to match this offer on the big day as it’s been pretty disappointing hunting for Switch bargains so far.
The next best Black Friday discount we’ve seen is a Switch Lite with Animal Crossing for £209 at Amazon. That gets a solid: not great, not terrible.
