Finding excellent Nintendo Switch deals can be pretty rare. Nintendo's popular handheld console has no trouble selling out at its regular price of $299.99, so it's not often that retailers need to push sales by offering discounts. That's why Best Buy's latest deal on a Geek Squad refurbished console shouldn't be passed on easily.

Right now, you can pick up the refurbished Nintendo Switch on sale for just $269.99 and save $30 off its regular price instantly. The refurbished console on sale today is a special edition featuring a design based on the game Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Geek Squad tests and inspects each of the consoles to ensure they're in proper working order before being shipped to you. Free shipping and a 90-day warranty are included with the purchase.

Best Buy offers free shipping on orders totaling $35 or more, though you could receive your order even faster by choosing free in-store pickup where available.
