The Nintendo Switch is already a steal at $299.99, and even better at the Switch Lite’s $199.99. It’s Nintendo’s best console in years, and already has loads of great games to play. But due to its success, and Nintendo’s infamous lack of sales, it’s pretty rare to pick up a Switch under either of those price tags.

Despite that, eBay is running a small sale on Switch consoles for the next few days.

Instead of the usual $299.99, you can pick up the docked Switch for only $285.99 — that’s a full $14 off the retail price. When we said it was a small sale, we meant it. It might not seem noteworthy, but consider how rare it is for any Nintendo items to see even this minuscule of a price drop. And $14 can get you a lot in 2020, like a cup of coffee and an indie game for your new Switch.

It’s worth noting that this Switch sale is also for the newer version of the Switch, which includes a better battery. But with rumors of a new Switch coming this year, you may be better off saving that cash — even with the $14 discount!
