Here’s an interesting, late-breaking retailer that’s throwing its hat firmly into the Black Friday ring for 2018: Google Express. It’s a Google partnership with Wal-Mart, Target, Costco and other retailers that is working as a sort of large-scale Amazon competitor. It’s not something I’ve used extensively or heard a huge amount about, but there’s no arguing with some of the prices it’s offering on video game consoles this Black Friday. I had thought that most of the deals had already solidified when I received this email last night, but there are several prices on here that actually beat a lot of the other deals we can see from major retailers either in terms of versatility or just raw price. Let’s take a look:

There’s a first round of pre-Black Friday deals that are already live, including what I’d argue is the best of the bunch.

For all these deals you’ll need to enter the code PREBF18 for 20% off. The Switch bundle is interesting given that it’s the only Switch discount I’ve seen that isn’t Nintendo’s Mario Kart 8 Deluxe bundle, and that plenty of people might want to be picking up this console for Pokemon Let’s Go. The Xbox One X bundle is excellent, however: it’s cheaper than the PUBG bundle you can find at other retailers and it comes with Red Dead Redemption 2 to boot. the PS4 deal is better than the $199.99 bundle at some other places, and just about in line with the $50 GameStop card you’ll get from buying it at GameStop.

There are two more deals going live on Black Friday itself:

Again, the Xbox One S bundle is cheaper than Microsoft’s flagship bundle and comes with Red Dead Redemption 2, which you won’t find much of a discount on this year. The Switch is a good deal too: it’s about the same savings as the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe bundle, but it gets the job done with a straight discount so you could get something like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild instead.

Again, this is sort of a late addition to the lineup of deals, so I’m not seeing them advertised around too much. But so long as they’re in stock, these are some excellent deals.
