Earlier during Black Friday, you could have snagged a Nintendo Switch OLED at Woot for $309.99. However, the deal is over now. We’re on the hunt for more Switch OLED deals.

Amazon Prime members who checked out through the Woot mobile app were able to save an additional $20, discounting the $349.99 console to just $289.99, $10 less than the standard (slightly inferior) model of Nintendo’s handheld.

The OLED model is similar to its standard counterpart, but features several improvements, including a larger and brighter display, better audio, and a more robust kickstand. And, compared to some of Woot’s prior deals on the Switch OLED, this one passes the smell test because it includes a one-year warranty from Nintendo.

Even with the advent of more powerful gaming handheld like the Steam Deck and Asus ROG Ally, the Switch is still the only (official) place to experience first-party Nintendo titles like The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Metroid Dread, and Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope.

We can’t guarantee how long this deal will last (it expires today, whether it sells out or not), but this is a fantastic opportunity if you’re considering investing in Nintendo’s upgraded handheld. In the meantime, you can check out our collection of the best Black Friday microSD card and SSD deals if you’re in need of some extra storage for your new handheld, otherwise, make sure to check out our larger Black Friday deals roundup to see some of the other awesome deals going on right now.
