Unlike launch day, you can’t preorder or reserve a Nintendo Switch console at GameStop, so unless you were able to snatch one up in-store or score one of their bundles online, you were out of luck.
Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to score a Switch. For starters, GameStop has said it’ll be receiving consoles all week, so it’s worth checking back to see if they re-stock. And, the thinking goes, if GameStop is receiving shipments this week, other retailers might be receiving them as well.
Then there’s always Amazon. This LINK takes you to hundreds of sellers who are offering either the Switch with the grey Joy-Con, or with the neon red and blue Joy-Con. Prices start around $250 and many merchants are shipping the consoles out next week. eBay also has listings for the Switch, and though current bids start around $400, you can always use the “Buy It Now” option to lock down a console or bundle for yourself and not worry about monitoring the auction.
The key here is to be diligent and to keep checking those sites above. Make sure you have your checkout information handy too — once you add that console to your cart, you want to make sure the next place it’s going is home with you.
