eBay has been one of the few places you could still find an NES Classic Edition, albeit with up to a $300 markup, since Nintendo discontinued the plug-and-play console in the spring of 2017. Today, though, you can actually get a NES Classic at a 15 percent discount if you move quickly.

eBay is offering 15 percent off all orders of $25 or more for one day only with code PERFECTDAY.

On the off chance that you can find an eBay seller still stocking the NES Classic at the retail price of $59.99, that means you can get Nintendo’s retro mini-console for $50.99. Those listings are already few and far between less than an hour after release, so if you manage to find one be sure to snatch it up quickly. Where the coupon is much more likely to help, though, is in offsetting reseller markup when the NES Classic inevitably sells out at other retailers.

This is also a great time to grab the Nintendo Switch at a significant discount. Many eBay sellers bump up their prices a little while these promotions are live, but you can still find a Switch for up to $30 off MSRP. The last time eBay ran a coupon like this, the Switch was on sale for $257, the lowest price we’ve seen since it was released.

eBay runs these daily deals pretty frequently now — this is the second one in June alone — and they’re always a good time to pick up a new console or some new games at a nice discount. Some of your best bets are listed below.
