Cheaper to buy from Japanese eShop as it is with almost all 1st party games

It does though you can set your region to Alberta and save quite a bit on taxes.

Never tried but I know in the states you can do this for tax free zip codes. So I don't see why not. I know for Xbox it works for me.

IIRC, you don't even need a postal code to do it. Been awhile but it was definitely minimal effort when I set up my eShop account.

This is not bad but theres many ways to get games cheaper at Shopper's. Many SDM have seniors discount every Thursday and lowered age to 55, effectively making their switch games $64 after the 20% seniors discount.

You could also buy it on a 20x the points day which works out to 30% off, or $56 assuming you will use the points later (can use for more Nintendo stuff).

Lastly, if you already have PC optimum points you could buy it in a redemption day where your points are worth 25% more.

For ultimate stacking, combine the last 2 with the right timing.

Overall, 13% off at Amazon is a warm deal, I'd recommend Shopper's for greater discounts.

I already bought the game in the OP. Why you gotta ruin my day?

Just trying to share the deals. Keep that knowledge in your pocket for your next purchase :)

Amazon deal includes free shipping, so still decent for people who don't have a Shoppers, or people who have bunch of amazon gift cards.

Are you able to change your postal code back at any time or is it locked upon account creation?

I've never tried but I imagine so since people have been known to move.
