    I unfortunately missed the initial wave, and now the Switch seems to be out of stock everywhere, but I have heard friends of mine say it will sometimes come back in stock for brief periods of time. I'd like to be able to jump on that, but I don't know how to tell when this happens--are there any good sites/subreddits/Twitter accounts/whatever that update this info frequently? Also, I don't really care where I get it from--I'm in the US, but I don't mind getting it from Japan/some other country if I really need to.

    Thanks, but I prefer online; I don't have a car, so I can't easily get to a Gamestop to preorder one in person. I guess I'll just have to keep monitoring.

    I preordered like a week late at the Walmart layaway desk so didn't get a guaranteed by date. Would love to get it on the 3rd, but in the grand scheme of things if I end up having to wait a month or two I am zen with that. Patience comes with age I certainly have that. Lol.

    Best Buy had a big sale on iPhones early December so I upgraded. We pass our old phones down to the kids after 2 years at Christmas so it sat hidden in a closet for nearly a month. It was probably harder on one of my boys who was due for an upgrade because I kept poo poing the 7 because if the headphone jack. He was genuinely surprised Christmas morning. Lol.

    One advantage of waiting a month or two is you will be able to have games for it you genuinely want rather then being tempted to waste money on a game or two you are not excited for just to have something to play on it.
