Take $20 off the Nintendo Switch Lite and play some of Nintendo's best games

You can get $20 off the Nintendo Switch Lite gaming console right now. That brings the total down to $179.99 from its usual $200. We didn't see any real direct discounts over the Black Friday weekend. The best deal was the regular price plus a $25 gift card. So while this might be $5 less in savings, it is more direct savings.

If you're interested in the regular Nintendo Switch, you might be interested in this bundle from Walmart that goes live at 9 a.m. It includes the Switch for $300 but throws in $20 eShop credit and a carrying case. Plus the Joy-Cons are a Mario red. That's a nice little deal worth exploring for the Nintendo fans.

This deal is just about as good as anything we saw over Black Friday weekend. Plays any Switch game that has a handheld mode. Optimized for handheld play so it comes with you everywhere and has plenty of connectivity options.

Read about the Nintendo Switch Lite in this iMore review. The team gave it 4.5 stars out of 5 with a Recommended badge. Rebecca Spear said "The Switch Lite is even better than I expected it would be. It feels amazing in my hands, has a stellar battery life, and is super easy to play on the go. I'll be using it more often instead of taking my larger Switch around with me."

The Nintendo Switch Lite is $100 less expensive than the regular Switch to begin with. It focuses on the portability of the console. It has an identical processor, a slightly smaller screen, and a battery life that's just as good as the full-size console. It is also perfectly compatible with all the regular Switch games as long as they support handheld mode, since that's the only mode the Switch Lite can do. The sleek design has fully integrated controls and a built-in +Control Pad.
