After getting your hands on a Nintendo Switch, one of the very next purchases you need to make is on a membership to Nintendo Switch Online. While its library of classic NES and SNES games that you can play at any time is pretty stellar, the real benefit of being a member is that it unlocks online multiplayer modes in a variety of Nintendo Switch games which you can't access otherwise.

If you plan on playing online in games like Splatoon 2 or Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, you'll need a membership. Luckily, Target has the one-year Nintendo Switch Online membership on sale today for only $14.99 in preparation for Black Friday tomorrow. The deal is only set to last through Saturday night, but you might not want to wait that long as it could sell out at any time. You'll be saving $5 and snagging one of the best discounts ever to reach the service.
