2019 GeekDad Holiday Gift Guide: Black Friday / Cyber Monday

Gift Guide

‘Tis the season for a deal. Here are a few we plan to take advantage of this year.

Black Friday deals
Who doesn’t love a free pack-in game?!

Nintendo Switch Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Bundle
Suggested By: Z.
Mfg: Nintendo
Price: $299.99
Purchase: Nintendo Switch Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Bundle

As far as I’m concerned, the Nintendo Switch Lite has already won Christmas, but for first-time Switch-buying households, a compelling case can be made for picking up the original Switch console instead. In fact, there’s never been a better time to do so! The Nintendo Switch Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Bundle is especially enticing at a Black Friday price of $299.99. That basically means you’re getting spectacular kart racer Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for free. And in case you’re wondering what to do with the cash you saved, Nintendo has also slashed the prices of Switch standouts like Super Mario Odyssey, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Splatoon 2 to $39.99— a $20 savings per game. For more information (not to mention more deals) check out Nintendo’s own holiday gift guide.

Fire TV Stick 4K
Suggested By: Z.
Mfg: Amazon
Price: $24.99
Purchase: Fire TV Stick 4K

If there’s one Black Friday deal I am willing to stay up for, it’s on Amazon’s own smart product line. Specifically, I’m planning to replace our beloved but beleaguered first-generation Amazon Fire TV with the shiny new Fire TV Stick 4K. Not only does this diminutive device support 4K Ultra HD streaming and come with its own Alexa Voice Remote, but its ample 8GB storage capacity also has plenty of room for all the games and apps we’ve come to rely on. Plus, at a Black Friday price of just $24.99, it’s literally half-off!
