    For the US specifically.

    Also would any place be offering any sort of deals or discounts or should we expect full price from every retailer?

    I'm talking about Best Buy's GCU or Amazon's Prime, would they apply?

    I'm just getting it on launch day, and buying it from a Walmart in Oregon (No sales tax) and then applying my 10% employee discount on top. Then I'll be able to afford the Zelda bundle with Pro controller ($370 USD) and another game like Splatoon.

    Are those bundles confirmed? Where and how do you know about this?

    So is the only way to get a discount on a Switch is by employee discount? How much discount does Best Buy employees get and would it apply to brand new consoles?

    My discount applies to anything that's not food, alcohol, tobacco, or clearance items. Anything else is fair game, 10% off. I was able to buy my Wii U for $270 brand new, so I was able to buy NES Remix Pack with the $30 I saved.

    And I have no clue what discounts BestBuy employees get, but I'd guess 10%-to-15%.

    If this is true, $260 is an amazing starting price. I don't care about the pro controller, so I probably just buy Zelda separately. Unless, maybe, if it is a special edition.

    If those bundle is accurate you would be saving money by going for them instead rather than separate and this is assuming you already have Best Buy GCU or Amazon Prime.

    I think would only be saving money, if I wanted the Pro controller or whatever the Mario game is. Otherwise, I would be speeding money on something I don't want.
