Sorry, Nintendo fans: as of Saturday, it’s looking like the Switchbundle is sold out online pretty much everywhere. That leaves you with 3 choices:
- Wait until Monday (Sunday night, really) when Walmart’s Mario Rabbids bundle instead. It’s currently sold out now at $324, but we assume that Walmart will be replenishing stock for the $300 Cyber Monday offer. online sale kicks off with a
- Check out Rakuten’s deal. If you just want the Switch alone (not a bundle), Rakuten.com is currently offering 20 percent off sitewide with promo code BF20. We found at least one seller offering the console for $310; the code brought my in-cart price down to $250. But this was a third-party seller, not Rakuten proper, and there are other third-party vendors that have marked up the starting price to $329 (which would still get you down to $263). And supplies are definitely limited.
- Check for in-store supplies. In the NYC area, Target is showing stock in some stores, including Jersey City — even as its site says “This item is not available to buy online for order pickup within 100 miles of jersey city, nj.” Which one is true? You’ll need to call or journey to the stores in question, unfortunately.
