Tried to pre-order Pokémon Sword/Shield and Links Awakening and it states the item is out of stock even though it lets you add it to the cart

Got Fire Emblem, thanks! Still waiting on Link's Awakening stock. Got to checkout and said it was OOS.

Has anyone seen any deals on The Witcher for Switch?

Why does nobody understand how mail works? Walmart only has "day 1 delivery" if you live near their warehouse in Toronto. If you live in Vancouver, you're going to be waiting a week. On the flipside, if you buy from Best Buy and live in Vancouver they have a warehouse in Richmond, so you'll always get "day 1 delivery."

Any time anyone cites a business as having fast delivery or slow delivery, it demonstrates just how bought in people are to corporate marketing. Unless you're a private courier like Amazon, it's up to Canada Post (or UPS or whomever) and is 100% not to said company's fault or credit.
Not true, it also depends how quickly the store warehouse gets the products from the publisher too. That was a supply trouble with rockstar and amazon that's why many people who preordered RDR2 from amazon got delayed pretty bad, while best buy had no problem. Even from where I live, all 3 stores use Canada Post. Even though I always gets it next day whenever I received a shipping notice email, best buy 100% always ship on the day before launch with Canada Post Expedited while amazon use regular shipping either on the day before launch to 2 or 3 days after launch or worst case scenario 3 weeks later.

You just proved my point. Unless they own a private courier, the store isn't to blame (or praise), it's Canada Post / UPS / another carrier. As colavs19 reiterated, with rare exceptions, delivery is influenced solely by your distance from the shipment's origin. "Free shipping" is standard regular parcel mail no matter who you're buying from; you can look up shipping times on Canada Post's website and they'll also tell you it's based on distance. Assuming they ship on release day, the corporation has nothing to do with when your parcel arrives.
If the corporate store warehouse couldn't get the games before launch date, then it is the corporation's fault. Hence the RDR2 fiasco.

Amazon has Link's Awakening up now @ $79.99. Don't they have some kind of price guarantee, where they should match Walmart at $64.99?

I believe it only matches if the competitor is in stock.

If my pre-order for Astral Chain went through on Wal-mart but then got cancelled within 4 hours, should I bother re-ordering? Anybody know if Amazon has price matched Wal-marts pre-sale for Astral Chain yet?
