eBay slashes the price of Switch to $319 this weekend only
Update: All 400 units have now sold out.
eBay, that place you go for some cool things from time to time, has announced its first-ever Plus Weekend. “But what is Plus Weekend?” I hear you ask. Available to eBay Plus members only, Plus Weekend will run from 10 am Saturday 23 June to midnight Sunday 24 June, offering the biggest savings and best deals ever seen on the platform.
So why should you join eBay Plus? Well, one of the deals included in this weekend is the amazing Philips SB300B ShoqBox Bluetooth Waterproof Portable Speaker, priced at $25 during the sale, a saving of 72%… oh and also Nintendo Switch is on sale, down from $519.75 to the whopping price of $319. That is a massive saving of $200.
The link you’ll need is here – this one – be there at 6pm AEST today and use the code PLUS6PM. There will only be 400 units at this price, so good luck.
In order to get the discount, you have to be a member of eBay Plus. The good news is that they offer a 30 day free trial of the service, which means free delivery on all Plus sales, double Flybuy points (if that’s your thing), and more. After the 30 day trial, you will need to pay the yearly fee which is normally $49, but for this weekend only it’s $29.
Julie Nestor, Chief Marketing Officer of eBay Australia & New Zealand, said, “We know deals and free delivery are two of the most important factors for loyal eBay shoppers, so we’ve rewarded Plus members with their very own annual shopping holiday. Black Friday and Cyber Monday have taken the world by storm, so it’s exciting to be the first marketplace to offer an exclusive event for the Australian online retail industry.”
