Nintendo Switch OLED restocks in 2022

Nintendo Switch OLED restocks continue to sell out like lightning, and the situation looks likely to continue that way for some time. Due to the global shortage of semiconductors, Nintendo Switch OLED restocks have been emerging in sporadic drops at different retailers after pre-orders sold out in no time at all ahead of the console's 8 October release.

If you're hoping to get one in time for Christmas, Very is offering pre-orders in the UK on the white Nintendo OLED with the game Metroid Dread for £349.98, with delivery due on 21 December. In the US, Target may have Nintendo Switch OLED restocks in some stores, but online the only option at the moment are resales on Walmart, but these are charging for at least $150 more than Nintendo's retail price. 

To avoid being taken in, keep in mind that the retail price of the Nintendo Switch OLED is $349.99/£309.99 (a little more than the original Switch due to the stunning OLED screen). If you see an item priced higher than that, you're dealing with a reseller who's inflated the price. Note that while you can avoid paying a markup, it's very unlikely that we'll see significant discounts on the standard retail price.

As of 15 November, there was no other stock available online in the US, but note that stock can come and go in a day, so we'll provide links below to the retailers that have received Nintendo Switch OLED restocks in the past. It's worth checking these regularly to see if they have new stock – and if you see the console in stock, don't delay because it probably won't last long.

See our guide to Nintendo Switch deals in general if you're not set on the OLED version, or see how the Nintendo Switch OLED compares to the original. And for more console restocks, see our PS5 restock news.

As of 15 November, Walmart was the only US retailer that had stock of the OLED Nintendo Switch, but its options were all resales with a significant mark-up on the official retail price, for example, this OLED model with the white Joy-Con on sale for $497. Target had a restock on November 15 that sold out within minutes but is proving to be one of the best places to check – check individual stores near you.
