The Nintendo Switch was, like most consoles during the pandemic, once in short supply. Thankfully, retailers like Best Buy, Amazon, and Walmart now routinely stock the Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite in multiple color configurations and models, giving those who struck out ample opportunity to purchase Nintendo’s versatile console.
We’re keeping an eye across the web to find where you can buy a Nintendo Switch, the Nintendo Switch Lite (the portable-only version of the console), and the new Nintendo Switch OLED model, as well as any bundles that seem like good deals.

The Nintendo Switch OLED officially went on sale on sale today, October 8th, for $350 and offers a slew of improvements, most notably a vibrant 7-inch OLED display and an improved kickstand that offers far greater stability. The speakers get a bit louder and offer a touch more clarity, too, and there’s a wired ethernet port built directly into the dock.
At the time of this writing, the Nintendo Switch OLED is only available at Best Buy, however, both Gamestop, Amazon, and Nintendo had the hybrid console available at launch. If you go the Best Buy route, just make sure to log in to your store account before trying to add one to your cart.
