Nintendo Switch OLED restock is extremely difficult to find. The upgraded version of Nintendo's popular hybrid console was released earlier this month and it's already joined the likes of the PS5 and Xbox Series X as a gaming product that is sold out at all major retailers including Amazon, Target, and GameStop. 

Even buying a regular Nintendo Switch hasn't been easy over the last 18 months, so it's no surprise that eager gamers have snapped up the available stock of the suped-up OLED model. The Nintendo Switch OLED is practically guaranteed to be one of the most in-demand items this holiday season.

Tracking Nintendo Switch OLED restock will be a necessity for the next several months. That's where we can help, as we're tracking restocks at every major retailer and on Twitter down below. Make sure to bookmark this page and check back often for the latest updates and information.

How to buy Nintendo Switch OLED: Essential tips

Be prepared: Ahead of a restock make sure you have all the right payment details pre-saved on your device/retailer account. This will give you the best possible chance to buy a Nintendo Switch OLED. Units typically go very fast during restocks so if you're spending time entering your credit card number you could miss your chance to secure a Nintendo Switch OLED order.   

Pick a retailer: As you can see from the above list, there are an awful lot of retailers to choose from. This can actually make the process of securing a Nintendo Switch OLED a bit complicated. We advise selecting a couple of major retailers such as Target or Best Buy and keeping an eye on their Nintendo Switch OLED landing pages. Trying to regularly check every single major retailer could lead to you missing stock. 

Sign up for stock alerts: Multiple retailers offer to notify you when they have the Nintendo Switch OLED in stock. While these alerts aren't always the most reliable, we still suggest you sign up for this service at any retailer offering them. They might just tip you off to a restock. 

Sign in to retailers: Make sure you sign in to any retailers you might already have an account with. This will make things a lot faster when buying a Nintendo Switch OLED if you spot one on sale. And speed is of the essence today.

Keep refreshing and don't give up: It can be a little demoralizing trying to find Nintendo Switch OLED restock when everywhere looks sold out. But regularly refresh product pages to see what pops up; you might get lucky. And also keep checking back here for any Nintendo Switch OLED stock updates.
