Snag This Black Friday Deal Before You Shop The Switch eShop Sale

Amazon is discounting Nintendo eShop and Xbox gift cards as part of its ongoing Black Friday sale.


The Black Friday deals keep rolling in as the weekend progresses, and the latest deal available at Amazon should be of interest to those browsing the Black Friday Nintendo eShop or Xbox Live sales. Though those sales are offering steep discounts on some great digital games, you can save even more money if you take advantage of a Black Friday deal on gift cards. Right now, Nintendo eShop gift cards and Xbox gift cards are available for 10% off at Amazon. (For those who prefer to shop at Best Buy, the deal is available there as well.) Combine that with a Black Friday game deal, and you're looking at some very nice savings. Your wallet will thank you.

While 10% off doesn't sound like very much, the savings definitely add up, especially if you mostly buy games digitally. The gift cards are available at multiple values, so you can select the right amount for you. The deal means you can essentially get $99 of eShop store credit for $89 or $50 of Xbox credit for $45. These are digital codes, so you'll be able to redeem them right away.

The Nintendo eShop vouchers can't be used to buy a Nintendo Switch, but you can use it to pick up some of the recent releases for the hybrid console. That includes Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, Pikmin 3 Deluxe Edition, or just a handful of indie hits like Hades and Paradise Killer. Combined with Nintendo's own eShop Black Friday sale, you can pick up some great deals. Not all denominations are on sale, so you should make sure you're getting the discount before checking out.

The Xbox vouchers are particularly enticing thanks to their eligibility on the Microsoft Store. This means you could put vouchers toward the purchase of an Xbox Series X or Series S in the future--if you can find them in stock. There are a ton of Black Friday Xbox Live game deals available right now, so check those out as well.
