Cyber Monday 2020: Nintendo Switch Online Bundle Includes Free Memory Card

The Best Buy Cyber Monday sale has brought another nice deal on Nintendo Switch Online.


If you're a new Nintendo Switch owner or shopping for one this Christmas, a Nintendo Switch Online membership is a nice way to get the most out of the system. Though Switch Online isn't nearly as robust a subscription as PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold are, it's also much cheaper, mainly granting you access to online multiplayer in games like Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. You also get some other perks like access to discounts, exclusive games like Tetris 99 and Super Mario Bros. 35, and a large library of NES and SNES Classics. We rarely see deals on Nintendo Switch Online, but for Cyber Monday, you can currently find a nice deal on the Switch Online family membership at Best Buy.

If you know other people who own a Nintendo Switch, the family membership is definitely the way to go as it can be applied to up to eight Nintendo accounts, while an individual membership costs $20 and covers only one person. If you split a family membership with seven other people, you'll pay a measly $2.50 per person--for a whole year. After purchasing, the code will be delivered via email and can be redeemed on the Nintendo Switch eShop.

The family subscription is just one of many great Nintendo Switch Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. Quite a few Switch games have gotten record-low prices. If you're looking to buy a Switch console this holiday, numerous major retailers have a great bundle featuring Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and three months of Nintendo Switch Online. However, it's quickly going out of stock, so you will likely have to shop around until you find one that still has them. We've recently seen both Amazon and GameStop get the bundle.

For more deals, don't forget to take a look at our roundup of the best Cyber Monday gaming deals, which covers Switch as well as PS5/PS4 and Xbox Series X/Xbox One.
