Early Black Friday Deals At Ebay: Nintendo Switch Lite, Pokemon Sword And Shield, And More

Ebay's got the early hookup on some Black Friday sales.


It's time to start hunting for Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, as a number of retailers and online stores have already announced their plans for Black Friday 2019, if not offering pre-Black Friday deals outright. Ebay's got its share of deals, and even kicked off its deals at the start of the month.

Ebay's Black Friday plans include a series of Black Friday "drops" every Friday at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET, from now through December 13. These include "a limited quantity of trending items," such as the Nintendo Switch and Bose headphones. The retailer will also be offering major deals on its Brand Outlet page, which features items from major brands like Apple, Microsoft, Samsung, and Nintendo.

Notably, the Nintendo Switch Lite and Pokemon Sword and Shield will be the Black Friday drops this week, on November 15--which happens to be release day for the games' release date--but Ebay's press release doesn't indicate what the sale price will be for either product. We've reached out for more information and will update this story when we hear back.

Black Friday deals at Ebay come with the store's best price guarantee, which means you'll receive 110% of the price difference on eligible deals and top products if you find the same item for less on a competitor's website. The best price guarantee is available at Ebay year-round, but it's sure to be particularly handy during Black Friday.

We'll keep this article updated as more gaming, tech, and entertainment deals go live, but for now, check out an overview of the best upcoming deals below, as well as some of the current offers.
