Finally, you can buy a $299.99 Nintendo Switch today. Here is how.

Today is the day to find a Nintendo Switch in stock. There is likely a big dry spell after today that will last weeks. Nintendo shipped new Nintendo Switch inventory to retailers. The size of the supply is significant. Amazon just started to sell the $299.99 Nintendo Switch with Neon Joy-Con online.

Update: After two hours the Nintendo Switch was sold out on Best Buy jumped in as alternative. The Best Buy online store has both Nintendo Switch consoles in stock. Also available now are the three Splatoon 2 amiibo.

There is also a good chance to find the Nintendo Switch in stock at your local mall. Best Buy, Walmart, Target, GameStop stores have the Nintendo Switch in stock with varying levels.

Here is the best strategy to buy a Nintendo Switch today:

As a failsafe, order the Nintendo Switch on Amazon in case you have Prime.

Then go to the mall this morning just before the doors open at Walmart, Target or Best Buy. Visit the store with the earliest opening hours first. In case there is no Switch in stock at these big stores, try GameStop, ToysRUs and also these smaller stores: Meijer, Kohl's and Shopko.
