The Nintendo Switch was recently upgraded with improvements to its screen, battery life, and its flash storage, and eBay's now offering one of the first deals to ever hit the latest model of this popular handheld hybrid console. Today only, you can snag the new console with Gray Joy-Con controllers for just $269.99 and save nearly $30 off its usual cost. Shipping is free.

Today's deal is part of eBay's new Friday Drops sale which will be offering exclusive discounts on products like PlayStation 4 controllers, AirPods, and even Yeezys throughout the rest of the month. Make sure to check back at 12pm EST each Friday to see what you might be able to snag.

When eBay's deal inevitably goes out of stock, check out this offer via Amazon which would score you a free $25 Amazon gift card with the purchase of the latest Nintendo Switch at its regular cost. Refurbished models of the first-generation console are also on sale today via eBay for just $234.

Side by side, you can barely tell there's a difference between the first Nintendo Switch and this latest, enhanced model. However, improvements to the screen and battery life make it essential to ensure you're buying a new Nintendo Switch these days rather than the older model. Luckily, there's different product packaging to separate the two; the new Switch consoles feature packaging with a primarily red background, while the original consoles' packaging features a primarily white background.

Now that you have a Nintendo Switch on its way, you get to start thinking about which games to buy! From Super Smash Bros Ultimate to The Legend of Zelda: The Breath of the Wild, you can find stellar picks at Amazon on sale at great prices right now. Another essential item some people forget to pick up is a memory card. The Nintendo Switch can hold a maximum of 32GB on its own, yet you can actually use that up pretty quick with all the awesome digital games the eShop has available for purchase. You can remedy the situation with a 128GB microSD card for just $20 right now.
