It finally happened, boys and girls: Nintendo Switch consoles sold directly by Amazon are back in stock! Not only that, but Amazon has the special Nintendo Switch Animal Crossing Edition console everyone’s been looking for, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons is on sale for $49.94!
If you’re wondering why it matters that this console is sold directly by Amazon instead of a third-party seller, the answer is upsetting but simple. Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, Nintendo Switch consoles have been very difficult to find in stock anywhere. Shady third-party sellers on Amazon have been taking advantage of the situation by price-gouging consoles and charging astronomical prices. At one point, these disgusting Amazon sellers were charging as much as $500 or $600 for a simple Nintendo Switch console. It’s despicable, but unfortunately, it also doesn’t come as much of a surprise.
Nintendo Switch consoles sold directly by Amazon are obviously not price-gouged. If Amazon is going to sell Purell hand sanitizer at the lowest prices on the internet in the middle of a pandemic, you can be sure it’s not going to gouge Switch consoles.
It’s worth noting that there’s no telling if or when another opportunity like this will arise and shipping estimates are already slipping. That means the Switch could sell out at any moment, so you should definitely hurry if you don’t want to miss out. Once it sells out, there’s no telling when Amazon might get more in stock.Nintendo Switch - Animal Crossing: New Horizons Edition - Switch Price:$299.00 Available from Amazon, BGR may receive a commission
