You can pick up an extra set of Joy-Con controllers for your Nintendo Switch today at Newegg for $24 less than their usual $79.99 asking price. Available in blue, red, grey, or the neon red and blue combo that comes with some consoles, using the offer code EMCEPRR37 at checkout brings the price down to $55.99.

Even if you’re all set with Joy-Con controllers for the moment, it’s likely that you’ll end up buying another pair at some point in time. Extras are good to have if you enjoy playing with the Comfort Grip, giving you more Joy-Con to cycle through should your battery zero out.

Obvious as it seems, more Joy-Con controllers also means that more players can jump in for some couch multiplayer. Whether you’re playing Mario Tennis Aces, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe or Super Mario Party, or just prepping for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, you’ll have more fun when you’re playing with someone.

Update (2:20 p.m. ET, Oct. 22): Newegg’s stock of Joy-Con controllers has sold out, and a company spokesperson told Polygon that the offer code is unfortunately no longer valid.
