If you’re looking for a Nintendo Switch OLED restock, we’re expecting a new wave of drops between October 18-24.
It’s been a week since the launch of the Nintendo Switch OLED and the console upgrade is already becoming hard to find.
As with all in-demand items, scalpers are jumping at the chance to snap up some extra devices to sell on. And Nintendo Switch OLED consoles are going for insane money on eBay already!
What’s more, after the incredible news of the Animal Crossing DLC coming next month, we’re sure more fans than ever are on the hunt.
But this urgent warning is going out to Switch OLED owners, so be sure to read up before you buy!
All Nintendo Switch OLED Restocks – October 18-24
Nintendo Store Switch OLED Restock
As we expected, Nintendo was among the first stores to restock the Switch OLED post-launch. It’s not unlikely that the Nintendo Store will be the best place to search for the hardware upgrade moving forward.
We’ll have to wait and see exactly how regular the online store is with its OLED drops, but we predict it’ll be your best shot at a Nintendo Switch this week.
GameStop Nintendo Switch OLED Restock
Not only did GameStop sell Nintendo Switch OLED consoles in-store on launch day, but the retailer has also already gone live with more stock.
According to a store representative, GameStop will be online-only when it comes to OLED drops in future. And last week’s drop didn’t even require a PowerUp Rewards Pro membership to purchase.
Make sure you take a look at these vital tips to help you buy a console from GameStop this week.
Walmart Nintendo Switch OLED Restock
Although Walmart had no Nintendo Switch OLED drop last week, the retailer had both pre-orders and launch day consoles on sale. We expect that it’s going to have new OLED units in stock this week for Switch hunters.
The store has repeatedly had the extremely Limited Edition Halo Xbox Series X available despite other retailers struggling. But it’s worth noting that Walmart appears to sell consoles it doesn’t have yet.
You might be waiting a long time for shipping but buying a Switch OLED from Walmart is still better than not finding one altogether.
Best Buy Nintendo Switch OLED Restock
We’re surprised to see that Best Buy didn’t have a Nintendo Switch OLED restock last week, particularly after rolling out its expensive new membership system for next-gen drops.
We wouldn’t recommend shelling out $200 just for early access at future restocks but existing TotalTech members can take advantage of the upcoming drop.
It’s also worth noting that Best Buy was selling Nintendo Switch OLED units in-store on launch day. Perhaps it’s worth checking your local store before waiting for an online drop.
Antonline Nintendo Switch OLED Restock
Antonline will reportedly have the Nintendo Switch OLED for sale soon, and the store even went live with a new Switch bundle last week.
However, to our surprise, the site didn’t have an OLED in its latest Metroid Dread bundle, which could either mean it’s saving it or struggling to find stock.
Put notifications on for Antonline’s official Twitter page and never miss a drop. However, you should note that Antonline always sells consoles as part of a bundle!
You’ll pay a little more for the restock, but Antonline bundles do help deter scalpers, at least a little.
Target Nintendo Switch OLED Restock
Although Target just switched to selling Xbox Series X/S consoles in-store, the same may not be said for the Switch OLED. However, right now we’re yet to see any OLED drops at the major retailer since launch day.
We’ll be sure to update you with any restock news, but as of yet we’re not entirely sure how Target will be dropping the Nintendo Switch OLED consoles.
However, it never hurts to check in with your local store over the phone!
Amazon Nintendo Switch OLED Restock
Our hope was that Amazon would be better with the Switch OLED than it was with the PS5 and Xbox Series X. However, we’re yet to see any movement from the online retailer since launch day.
It’s only been a week so far, but we’re skeptical that Amazon will be the biggest OLED supporter just yet. However, given that Amazon announced its last restock in advance, we hope to see a similar announcement in the future.
That’s all we know about the Nintendo Switch OLED restock wave from October 18-24 for now. However, we’ll be updating this page with new information as it arrives, so check back regularly!
That said, this Nintendo employee recommends not buying the Switch OLED unless you’re a fan of the screen.
And many although many gamers are calling the Switch OLED useless, it’s proving to be quite the popular console so far.
