The Nintendo Switch Lite launched just a few months ago, and it’s rare to see the price drop this low ... to $179.99. The deal is available at for Amazon Prime members for 10 hours, or until the system sells out.

People without Amazon Prime can still get the console for $189.99. Here’s how it works: At checkout, Amazon Prime members will get an extra $10 off the $189.99 price, making it $179.99. You’ve just got to make sure you log in and buy the system using the Amazon button. If you don’t have Amazon Prime, then you can ignore that part and just check out.

The turquoise Switch Lite is already sold out, but yellow and grey units are still available. The offer is limited to one per person.

Nintendo Switch Lite was released on Sept. 20. It’s a smaller version of the Nintendo Switch; the handheld-only Switch has a 5.5-inch screen and weighs less than the original hardware. It supports external Joy-Cons, but can’t be docked to play on the TV.
