EB Games
  • If you trade in any Wii U, PS4 or Xbox One, towards a Nintendo Switch, EB Games says the new console will only cost you $249.99, at $150 off. If you can find a used console for cheaper than $150, this may be a deal. Nintendo Switch not sold online from EB Games.
London Drugs
  • Call and ask for stock; pick an obscure location away from the city centre.
Shoppers Drug Mart
  • Call the store and press 4, then 1, to get to customer service, to ask for stock (BTW—Sidney has stock). Best to try a far away location to increase your chances of getting the console.
Again, if you’re looking for a Nintendo Switch, your best bet is to put on your AirPods or another Bluetooth headset and start making calls to stores, to plan out your mission to acquire the console.

Nintendo also has released their Parental Controls iOS app, which lets parents take full control over access to the console.
