Where to buy the Nintendo Switch: Get the latest inventory updates for Amazon, Best Buy and Walmart – CNET


Through much of last year, Nintendo struggled to keep up with demand for its venerable little Switch (and Switch Lite, for that matter). And though the Switch has made some cameo appearances at major retailers, it’s all-but-entirely sold out again at most major retailers at its regular $300 price tag.

And the news gets worse: If you saw one of the snazzy bundles over the holidays and were hoping to buy one of them now — like the Mario Kart or Fortnite-themed Switch bundles — you’re almost certainly out of luck, at least until the next holiday season rolls around. It appears that the late 2020 Switch bundles were limited-time offers. 

Want to snag a Switch for yourself? It doesn’t matter if you’ve been wanting one since they were sold out through most of 2020 or you’re just getting one to fill the PS5-shaped hole in your soul. Either way, scroll down — we’ll update this story often so you can see at a glance where the Switch is in stock to save you some fruitless clicking. And if they’re all sold out when you land on this page — as they are right now, as I’m updating the story — your only practical option is to but an admittedly overpriced reseller bundle. We highly advise waiting for the $300 retail version, but if you absolutely have to have it right now, resellers like Overstock have Switch bundles for about $460. Caveat emptor.
