Nintendo Switch In Stock at Walmart Online Store at 5pm ET Today

The chances are extremely high that Walmart's online store will sell the Nintendo Switch today. Updated.

The Walmart online shop has restocked the Nintendo Switch on a Friday for six weeks in a row. Walmart's Nintendo Switch flash sale started usually around 5pm ET.


5:01pm ET: It happened again. The Nintendo Switch was available for purchase at Our Tracker app noticed the availability and I was able to order a Nintendo Switch with Neon Joy-Con for $299.99 through the Walmart app.

Ordering the Switch without the bundle only worked through the Walmart shopping app. The delivery date on my order is May 17. We will start a giveaway as soon as this Switch arrives. The Switch sale at was sold out in less than 5 minutes.

1:45pm ET: Our Tracker just noticed that Walmart removed the market place offers from the stand-alone Nintendo Switch consoles product pages.

The $299 Nintendo Switch with Gray Joy-Con and the Nintendo Switch with Neon Joy-Con are now listed to be shipped and sold from Walmart, but still marked out of stock.

It is extremely likely that Walmart will again offer the Nintendo Switch as part of a bundle with a game and accessory today at the same time. The Nintendo Switch bundles start at reasonable $365.65. The most expensive combination of game and accessory is $438.87, which is still lower priced than the Nintendo Switch bundles sold in the GameStop online shop.

Last week it was possible to order the $299 Switch console as well and not just the bundle, through the Walmart app. It was not possible through the online store. Maybe this will be different today.

Walmart has offered four choices of Switch games including Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and four choices of accessories including the Switch Pro controller. The choices could change in today's Switch sale on The Walmart Switch bundles do not include any fluff stuff and give buyers the choice which items to include, making the offer very popular and sell out fast.

To beat shopping bots and other customers to the punch, shoppers need to hit the buy button as soon as the sale begins. Today is therefore a big test for our new online stock tracking app "The Tracker."

The Tracker will issue a notification on your smartphone as soon as the Nintendo Switch bundle is available on I am truly excited to find out how fast our app will be able to detect the begin of the Switch sale.

Some customers who ordered a Nintendo Switch in the past weeks at shared on social media that they did not receive the Switch consoles yet. Especially the Neon consoles are affected. It is not clear how wide-spread the issue is, but Walmart would not offer a weekly sale of the Nintendo Switch if they did not receive new inventory. Would be a strange thing to do.
