If you’re one of the lucky ones, who has been enjoying Nintendo‘s latest console, well done! However, if you’re one of the millions who are clamoring for a taste of what it has to offer. Here is the latest information on Nintendo Switch deals, Stock levels, and advice on how to get one today.
Nintendo Switch Deals – UK
In the UK, the market will be awash with a lack of competition because retailers Amazon, Game, Tesco, and Argos are all going to sell the console/hybrid for £279.
However, this is for what is considered to be the standard bundle which includes a console, two Joy-Con controllers, dock plus the necessary cables. Additionally, you can choose between two colors of Joy-Con – neon or gray, red or blue.
Now assuming that you’re not waiting for your pre-ordered Switch, how likely is it that stock will be available today?
In a recent interview a Nintendo representative told MCV that retailers will have stock available on March 3rd. However, availability will be very limited amounts.
“It’s true pre-orders are strong, but we still expect Nintendo Switch to be available at some retailers on Day One.” Nintendo’s Nicolas Wegnez explained. “As for stock replenishment, we expect shipments to come steadily.”

Again if you didn’t pre-order getting one of the many Nintendo Switch Deals could be difficult, but not impossible. In fact, we believe the best chance is to go to your local Toy’s R US store. Apparently, the company is expecting to be able to supply many of its stores daily for the next week. That’s according to a store assistant at a branch we called for information.
On its website, you can add the device to your basket and checkout. However, delivery is stated as taking 4-days. That’s not too long, but if you want one today, it’s not sufficient. Additionally, Tesco has categorically stated on its website that it will not be selling walk-ins. Both retailers are expected to sell the standard package for £279.99 alongside any further Nintendo Switch Deals.
However, what’s odd about the Switch and its offerings in the UK, is that no games ar bundled. Which is the complete opposite of what some US-based retailers are doing!
Nintendo Switch Deals – US
If you’re a US-based gamer and you missed out on a pre-order, or you wanted to hold off until you saw friends in action. There maybe be some Nintendo Switch deals for you to get your hands on today! As for where we’re thinking, Gamestop, Best Buy, Target, Walmart, and Amazon. However, it may be useful for you to contact independent stores, as often they are overlooked during an initial product rampage.
Best Chance of Getting One Today – US
As we mentioned earlier, unlike in the UK, there seem to be more options available in the US. Here’s a breakdown of what we know about the featured retailers.
GameStop: This online retailer probably offers you the best chance of getting one of the Nintendo Switch deals it has. As of today March 3rd, two bundles will be available; they consist of, Switch, Zelda, a Pro Controller, and an official guide to Breath of the Wild. It is on sale at $454.99, as for the 2nd, it’ costs $429.99 with the Switch, Zelda, and Pro controller.
Walmart: The giant retailer will have stock available online and in store whether you have pre-ordered or not. In fact, it is the place you are most likely to get one in person! However, there will be queues, and you should call ahead to check on stock levels. After-all if there are 1000-people in the queue and only 150 Switch consoles in stock there’s no point in traveling.
As for prices, online the company has some extremely different offers. There’s the basic package, which includes the console and what you need to set it up. This is selling for $299.99, remember that’s without a game. Now if you have a lot more to spend on your Nintendo console, Walmarts prices go all the way up to $641.98. For that price, you get a complete starter pack including a case for the Switch, screen protector, and more.
Best Buy: According to various online sources this retailer is completely sold-out online. As for what its in-store availability is like that is unknown. However, if the queues outside of its stores are anything to go by it may have some stock.
Amazon: The online mega-retailer has also sold out of its Nintendo Switch deals. But, if you want to know when it’s back in stock at Amazon and all the other retailers, we suggest you sign up to their mailing list.
