How to Find a Nintendo Switch In Stock on 4th of July Weekend

Nintendo Switch availability on 4th of July weekend is here. Updated

The 4th of July weekend is here. People who want to get a Nintendo Switch to play it during this long Holiday weekend will have a hard time finding one. The supply of new Switch consoles has slowed down again.

Update: GameStop released new Nintendo Switch bundles on July 3. Both new Nintendo Switch bundles available on gamestop.com ship this week on July 7.

The only store to order a Nintendo Switch online is surprisingly Think Geek. The GameStop owned store is offering ten different Zelda themed Nintendo Switch bundles online at ThinkGeek.com.

The Nintendo Switch bundles at Think Geek are starting at $419.99 and are comprised of the Zelda game and additional Zelda toys and collectibles. The big issue though is the shipping time frame. The Switch bundles offered by ThinkGeek ship late July.

To get a Nintendo Switch for free you can try your luck in our Nintendo Switch summer giveaway. The value of the Switch bundle we are giving away for free is $500. Enter now here to win a Nintendo Switch with Gray Joy-Con, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and two Nintendo Pro Controller. This Nintendo Switch Giveaway will end soon.

The release of ARMS did not bring a whole lot of new Switch stock. The expectations have been otherwise. Nintendo supplied retailers with new Switch stock for the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe launch, but no significant restocking took place on Friday and the weekend for ARMS. It could be different for the next big Switch game release. The next big release is Splatoon 2 on July 21. Amazon offers the Splatoon 2 game for $47.99 for Prime members.

The release fits the time frame ThinkGeek is giving for the shipment of their bundles. The Nintendo Switch bundles have sold out again at GameStop and the video game retailer has not released new bundles. Now they found a new way of offering the Switch through the Think Geek store. GameStop is the only store that offered the Switch online in the past weeks, with some brief exceptions from Walmart and ToysRUs. GameStop only offered the Nintendo Switch online as part of bundles starting at $399.99. When GameStop will have the next batch of Switch bundles available is not known.

The Nintendo Switch was available online on Thursday at walmart.com as part of a bundle starting at $379. The Tracker App sent out a smartphone notification to those who have subscribed to the Switch Bundle at Walmart. The offer sold out in about 10 minutes.

Walmart and Target and GameStop locations are also not showing promising Nintendo Switch inventory levels. See details below.

Nintendo has issued an apology in Japan for the ongoing shortage of the Nintendo Switch. The company said to keep shipping new inventory every week and has ramped up production this month. They try their best to meet the demand for the Nintendo Switch this fall. This is likely not happening as demand will sky rocket once the Holiday shopping season kicks in.

On Monday, Nintendo announced the $79.99 SNES Classic Edition. See today's SNES Classic Pre-order Updates report. The hype around the new retro console release is outpacing the excitement about the Nintendo Switch by a huge margin right now. Find out about the latest pre-order SNES Classic Edition updates.

To find Nintendo Switch in stock online, shoppers can use our new The Tracker app, available as free download for iOS and Android. Further below this report features the latest on the in-store availability of the Nintendo Switch.

Besides the GameStop Switch Bundle, the only way to get a Nintendo Switch online now is at reseller market places like Amazon. The Nintendo Switch reseller markups keep steady and range today between $90 to $120 for the Nintendo Switch with Gray Joy-Con and $95 to $130 for the Nintendo Switch with Neon Joy-Con on amazon.com.

The Nintendo Switch with Neon Joy-Con is more rare than the console with Gray controllers, resulting in considerable higher market value. Overall the Nintendo Switch market prices have remained flat. Read the reseller offers carefully and check the feedback. Some low priced offers have shipping dates in July.

Find below the latest Nintendo Switch online availability updates and stock tracking updates for stores.

Nintendo Switch Stock at Online Stores

The only store to order a Nintendo Switch online is Think Geek. Check GameStop.com to see if there are new bundles available.

Amazon restocked the Nintendo Switch the last time a month. Only Prime members got access to the Nintendo Switch stock. When the next Switch sale on Amazon takes place is not known. Use our new Tracker app to get notified when the Switch is in stock at Amazon or other major online retailer. The app is set and forget. When there is a Switch in stock you will receive a notification in real-time on your iPhone or Android phone.

The Nintendo Switch will continue to be hard to find for the foreseeable future. Next opportunity to find a Switch in stock should be this Friday in time for the release of ARMS. Nintendo plans to ship 10 million consoles world-wide in the time from April 2017 to April 2018. From the launch on Mach 3 to April 27, the Mario company sold 2.74 million Switch consoles.

The Nintendo Switch reseller markups keep steady and range today between $90 to $120 for the Nintendo Switch with Gray Joy-Con and $95 to $130 for the Nintendo Switch with Neon Joy-Con on amazon.com. The Nintendo Switch with Neon Joy-Con is more rare than the console with Gray controllers, resulting in considerable higher market value. Overall the Nintendo Switch market prices have risen slightly.

To find Nintendo Switch in stock online, shoppers can use our new The Tracker app, available as free download for iOS and Android.

There are also several new accessories coming on the market from Nintendo in the next weeks. See the full list of new Nintendo Switch accessories.

When is Nintendo Switch in stock online again?

Nintendo is ramping up the production for the Nintendo Switch, but has not disclosed what the current production capacity per month is. The demand for the Nintendo Switch will spike during the Holiday Shopping season 2017. Nintendo will set aside a large part of the Switch production during the next months for November and December. This stock piling will keep the Nintendo Switch in short supply during the next 5 months.

As Nintendo coordinated new Switch console shipment with the launch of Mario Kart 8, we expect the company to do the same for the next major Switch game launches. The next big release is Splatoon 2 on July 21. Amazon offers the Splatoon 2 game for $47.99 for Prime members.

The Nintendo Switch will likely be offered in special bundles in time for the Holidays. A Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Switch bundle has already surfaced in Russia. Because of the incredible demand for the Switch console, the monetary savings on these bundles will be limited. Usually bundles offer a way for consumers to get a free game. Nintendo can afford to just offer some savings, unless the demand is slowing down. Read the latest Nintendo Switch news.

Nintendo Switch in Stock at Stores

The Switch is available in 663 Walmart stores, 209 Target stores, and 50 GameStop locations according to the Nintendo Switch inventory tracker iStockNow (1:15pm ET). The numbers did not change much compared to yesterday.

The above numbers need to be put in perspective to the number of stores each retailer operates in the United States. There are 4,400 GameStop locations, 1,800 Target stores and 5,000 Walmart stores in the US. This means that the chances to find a Switch in stock at your local retail outlet are not that great.

The next big game release is Splatoon 2 on July 21. Amazon offers pre-order discounts on Splatoon 2 for Prime members to the tune of 20%. Read the latest Nintendo Switch news.
