Looking for a Switch

My daughter has a birthday the first week of July (1 month left) and I told her I would get her a Nintendo Switch. Unfortunately I have been looking for it and can not find any in stock. I live in Quebec laval area and have searched from past laval to all around montreal. Anyone Know of any store that has stock or am I going to look like a father who can't keep his promise. PS I do not want to pay above the regular price as I have seen amazon has some at 200$ over the original 400$ price tag.

Please help.

i just noticed my local walmart restocked with Nintendo products this evening, a few Neon Switch, new 3DS XL Black or Galaxy. Worth checking if you have one nearby.

"Hi, honey...I know I promised you a Switch, but they're sold out everywhere...so here's an IOU tag and we'll get one for you as soon as it's available..."

Problem solved.

I do not know if this is a regular occurrence, or just luck, but I have had good luck at Walmarts on Friday mornings. Both past weeks I have seen (and bought one) Switches at the Stoney Creek Walmart (neon and grey models). The Sales person both times said they had arrived late the night before....

I know that is possible but would like to make it happen since I do have 1 month to find one. Thanks for your help.

Amazon.ca had new stock for 399.99 fairly often over the last few days. You need a prime account to buy but you can sign up for a free 30 day trial. I was able to get one a few days ago after I got an email alert.
Very Interesting thanx I will give this a try.
