Nintendo Switch for my son
Looking for a nintendo switch for my son's birthday in September. I know that supply is low, but does anyone have any suggestions on where to look either online or in BR? I've looked at walmart/target/amazon onine and can't find one that isnt' $450. I don't mind paying $300 for it, but i don't want to overpay.

Follow Wario64 on Twitter and turn on alerts. He tweeted very recently about Amazon having them in stock. Still in stock for 8/5 shipping. I'd hurry if I were you. His Amazon affiliate link Amazon

ETA shite gone already. Follow him and you should be able to snag one in a few days.

I'll sell you a brand new one I brought from dirt cheap a few weeks ago. I'm in BR. I'll even sell it to you for less than you would pay for it in the stores.

Let me know if you are interested because I'm pretty close to just making it a second one for my house.

Not a seller, just a guy who got a good deal and doesnt mind passing it along. I was in your shoes a few months back and lucked into one for my daughters birthday.

Hey, i'm just trying to help the guy out.

I'm not forcing anything on anyone and I am more than happy to hold on to it.

If he is only interested in playing handheld you can get a lot cheaper ones. I play mine docked a lot it was like 120$ more just for that.

I used this site and was able to get a switch. You have to be quick as they sell out quick and the site is not the fastest to notify you. There are several other similar sites.

As mentioned, there are several twitters you can follow as well.

Also had luck just keeping a tab open for amazon, walmart, bestbuy, and gamestop for product I wanted and would refresh them all randomly throughout the day as I worked. Caught a couple in stock that way as well.

They are out there, just not in stock very long. If you have some free time and patience it's easy to get one.

Has he played the Mario and Zelda games on NES/SNES/N64? If not he doesn’t need a switch, he needs to play the classics.

You can get both the NES and SNES classic together for less than the price of a switch.

Sams Club has them in stock for $350 as part of a bundle. Price seems comparable to the $299 earlier in the week as the controller is ~$40 on amazon. LINK

I'm on the fence as I'm not sure I need any of those bundled accessories. What say the Gaming Board? Also, what are some must have games as I'm looking to get this for my 7 and 11 yr olds. (FYI - I grew up on the original and loved Zelda, Super Mario Bros)
