OOS again, no points were showing on checkout for me either. If someone here got it, did points show? Otherwise good luck with customer service.

Ugh I was going to pull the trigger on the OLED switch and now it's out of stock. Someone please @ me if it's in stock again

Why is this so buggy?
Many people myself included didn't realize that it was a one-time use offer. So if you already bought something and got the 20x points, you won't get it on your subsequent purchases.

Couldn't get a Switch OLED during any of the 4 previous Bonus Redemption days. I thought I finally had one when they held that promo around Christmas time, but that's when I realized that QCers couldn't order from Shoppers and needed to use Pharmaprix instead (which was OOS there obviously).

When I finally saw them in stock at 2AM this morning, I grabbed one and took advantage of the ~135K points. Sitting at 760K points that will now most likely be spent on groceries, unless they finally list a Xbox Series X...

For people still looking for one, what I did was keep a tab open in my browser with the items from the Video Console and Accessories, sorted by most expensive to least expensive. When the Switch OLED is in stock, it should show up as the first 2 items (White & Neon) on the page when you refresh, so you don't need to scroll down with every refresh (I was refreshing a few times a day)

So did you order from Pharmaprix or Shoppers? I have an address I can use in QC!

I got it from Pharmaprix online. With the "technique" I described above, I managed to find Switch OLED in stock at least 5 times over the past 3 weeks, but that was the first time I saw them in stock during a "20x Points online" event or "Bonus Redemption" days.

That's the exact link/page I was using and refreshing a few times a day:

Mario kart for sure
Mario tennis
Smash bros
Mario party superstars (sdm also sells the older one in stores)
Mario Odyssey
Luigi's mansion
Animal crossing if they're into that style

I also recommend finding a group buy on RFD for a nintendo switch online family plan, it's about $15/person for the year. Gives you access to a bunch of classic Nintendo/SNES/N64 games. We've recently been playing a lot of Mario tennis 64, which convinced us we needed to get Mario tennis aces during this sale.
Thanks for the recommendations @dbdudley,@Yragorn,@stephroll, @dieselboy27, @Esca,@tietherope and @peakingduck(OP) and others, you guys really helped me narrow down my selections!

Is there a thread for the family plans?

It showed up fine yesterday in checkout but I didn't place the order; this morning no points were showing at all in checkout.

Thx for the heads up OP. Was able to get an OLED in-store and flipped it 2 hours later for $480. A nice net of $109 in groceries for very little effort.

I checked out with zero points last night. Called into customer service and they say they have to manually add the points onto my account. Is this normal? It's my first time participating in this 20x event. Initially they said that I have to be a PC financial holder but later they find out I don't need to be.

Metroid dread is totally worth it, especially if you liked the old school side scrolling ones.

I had points added to my account immediately, right after the purchase. Waiting on the extra 5k points for using my PC Financial MasterCard now.
