Hoping to get the Nintendo Switch Mario Kart Bundle? The bad news is that it’s hard to find stock at the regular retail price of $ 299. The good news: It is not impossible. We know that, because at least one person at CNET has been able to disable it on Amazon in the past few days and we’ve also seen it in stock at Walmart – yes, only for a while – Sunday morning. We ran out of stock everywhere early this e Monday morning, but we’re tracking inventory and will update as more stock arrives.
For starters, let’s talk what you get in the box with the new $ 299 Mario Kart Switch Pack:
In other words, you get the same great hardware that can connect to a TV or play it at your fingertips, while also offering some free games. Even if you’re new to the Switch, you can get Joy-Con control and jump into a kart race right out of the box. Then, since much of the Switch library is digital, you can download a digital copy of any game that you like.
The package became “available” at most major retailers – Amazon, Target, Best Buy and GameStop – on Sunday, November 22nd. But immediately the stock was out of stock everywhere (at least online), and that is likely to continue. (We say it’s “out of stock” if you can’t get it at the regular price of $ 299; plenty of outside retailers are happy to sell you to hundreds of others.) To that end, we’re keeping stock tabs on the “regular” Nintendo Switch – same device Exactly, but no grouped numeric codes (scroll down). And remember thatUp to $ 15-30 so you can put together your own cute gift package.
Check the links here to see if the package is available from major sellers. But be warned: if you notice, you’ll want to act fast – we’ve seen stocks on Amazon and Walmart sell off in minutes. At the moment, there is no indication of any scheduled drop in stock from retailers, but we will continue to update this page with any news.
Nintendo Switch Pack Black Friday
As we mentioned above, we saw the last online stock at Walmart on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and the Sunday after.
Best Buy had the package as of the morning of November 22nd, but immediately out of stock.
At least one CNET employee managed to capture Switch from Amazon on Black Friday. When it’s not in stock, you’ll see prices that are higher than outside sellers.
GameStop has a product page for the package, but we didn’t see it in stock there.
Yes, the target has a page as well. You might have better luck with sidewalk pickups if your local store has stock.
Nintendo Switch Controllers (Not Black Friday Bundle)
These come with the same Switch hardware, however without Numeric codes grouped in the above versions. The Switch is available with red and blue controllers, gray controllers, or in an Animal Crossing version (design is based on the game, but not including this title).
What’s a good price for a transformer?
The Mario Kart bundle is the best deal on the Switch. Otherwise, you should consider yourself lucky if you find it at its regular price of $ 299. With used packages and consoles selling for $ 400 or more, paying the “suggested retail price only” is profit on that product.
