This is the only way to order a Nintendo Switch online and get it before mid-April

If you take a look at this special website that tracks Nintendo Switch availability at every major online store, you’ll see that you currently have exactly one option if you want to order a console today. And that option, unfortunately, is not a very good one (which explains why it’s available). For $600 at GameStop, you can order a huge Switch bundle that includes the console, an extra controller, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and a whole bunch of other games and accessories you really don’t want. Making matters even worse is the fact that this is actually a pre-order, and the GameStop page says this bundle “delivers by 4/15/17.”

Look, if you want to wait for supply to catch up with demand, we say go for it. The Switch is awesome, but not everyone needs to get their hands on one RIGHT NOW. If you do want to buy a Switch online though, and you want to receive your order sometime soon, you have one option and one option alone: Paying a premium and ordering it from Amazon.

Amazon has two different Nintendo Switch console options available, and both are currently being sold above retail. As we said, however, this is literally the only game in town if you want your Switch to ship today. You can choose either the Nintendo Switch with Gray Joy-Con or the Nintendo Switch with Neon Blue and Neon Red Joy-Con — just make sure you place your order with a reputable seller with plenty of positive reviews.
