This Dell Black Friday deal starts early: buy a Nintendo Switch OLED gaming console and you can get a bonus $75 Dell promotional gift card. You’ll receive the gift card via email once the console ships. The gift card carries a 90 day expiration and can be used on pretty much anything at Dell.com, including video games, gaming consoles, controllers, PCs, monitors, and more. If you already have a promotional gift card from a previous deal at Dell, you can apply it to this purchase.
Nintendo Switch OLED + $75 Dell eGift Card
If you plan on using the gift card, then you’re essentially paying only $274.99 for the Nintendo Switch OLED console. If you’re having trouble finding ways to spend that $75 gift card, then the simplest thing to do is to just buy some Nintendo Switch games or accessories. You might think that Dell only sells PCs, but they actually have a rather healthy lineup of popular Nintendo Switch games and gear. We’ve listed some examples below, but there are many more to choose from.
What Should I Use My Dell Gift Card On?
Is the Switch OLED Worth it Over the Switch?
If you can afford the $50 premium of the Switch OLED over the non-OLED model, then we think it’s definitely worth the upgrade. The biggest improvement, of course, is the display. The Nintendo Switch OLED features an OLED display that offers better image quality than the original LCD display. That includes deeper blacks, more vibrant colors, and a better color gradient. The text is sharper and easier to read as well. The screen isn’t that much bigger (7″ on the OLED vs 6.2″ on the non-OLED), but it does feel a lot bigger thanks to a thinner bezel. Other upgrades worth mentioning are a new and improved kickstand, a hard-wired ethernet port on the docking station, and an exclusive white Switch shell and matching Joy-Cons.
Will there be more Black Friday Nintendo Switch OLED deals?
It’s hard to say. We haven’t really seen the Nintendo Switch OLED on sale at all unless you count imported models from the UK. If you’re looking for a Switch non-OLED deal, then you may or may not be happy to hear that the exact same bundle from previous years will be making its return. That’s right, the Nintendo Switch console bundled with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will show up at several retailers for $299.99.
