⭐WARNING: Do NOT Buy a Nintendo Switch Mario Kart Bundle on Black Friday Until You Read This!
If you’ve got kids, you’ve likely heard a lot about the Nintendo Switch, and if you’re like me, you’ve been watching the Black Friday ads to see who would have the best deal. What you need to know before you buy is this:
A recent Nintendo Press release, notes that these particular bundles, being offered at select retailers, are the ORIGINAL Nintendo Switch (model HAC-001) with a free game ($59.99 value).
Why does this matter? Nintendo Switch Model HAC-001 has a battery life of 2.5-6.5 hours – which is clearly stated on the packaging of these Mario Kart bundles. Whereas the updated and newer model HAC-001(-01) has a battery life of 4.5-9 hours.
So basically, all these units out for sale during Black Friday, are consoles with a much shorter battery life.
Last year, these sold out by mid-December. They’ve increased in popularity as kids go to friends houses, play on them, and request one for themselves.
Where to get a great Black Friday deal on the NEW Nintendo Switch:
- Walmart released a hot deal on the NEWER model of Nintendo Switch with Minecraft today. We are not sure how long THIS DEAL will last (you’ll save $30 on the Switch and Minecraft game when purchased together). Plus you’ll avoid the Black Friday rush, and have it shipped right to your door!
- Sam’s Club will be selling a newer bundle deal (no game included), during their Black Friday sale.
- Kohl’s is advertising a different bundle that does not include Mario Kart 8. It’s not listed on their website yet, so we can’t confirm. However, I like the Kohl’s deal because you spend $319.00 and get $90 back in Kohl’s Cash to spend the next week (see it on page one of the Kohl’s Black Friday ad scan)
- No matter where you shop, ensure you have the correct Switch (if you want the one with better battery life) by making sure the model number is HAC-001(-01) and the serial number starts with XKW (not XAW).
