How long are they planning to run this promotion for? The release date for the OLED model is pretty far out (Oct. 8, 2021).

Is there a way to take advantage of this promotion without losing your animal crossing save?

That's a good strategy against the chip shortage.

I think you need to pay to sign up for Nintendo Switch Online to take advantage of cloud saves.

I believe you need both systems on hand to be able to transfer your island.

I want to be able to keep my Splatoon 2 file as well but I don't think there's an easy way to do that either.

EDIT: It looks like it might be possible to transfer your island using Nintendo Switch Online using their Island Backup and Restore feature that was introduced in one of the updates.

For trade-in offers like this, when do you have to give them your console?

In the near future, or when you pickup the new one?

They're most likely going to ask you to bring in your console to the store to do the trade-in, while the promotion is still running.

My son is having issues with current Switch controllers, headphone, etc. Instead of buying new controller, is this better option?

Thanks
