Nintendo Switch OLED Stock Tracker: How to Get Restock Alerts

Nintendo Switch OLED Stock Tracker: How to Get Restock Alerts

Here’s everything you need to know to get your hands on Nintendo Switch OLED stock.

Get the console the easy way by signing up with this Nintendo Switch stock tracker and get restock alerts when it’s available again.

If you’re looking to get your hands on Nintendo’s latest hardware, you’re not alone.

Like its next-gen peers, the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X, the new and improved Nintendo Switch OLED has proven difficult to track down ever since its release. All year around, stock for the Nintendo Switch is on and off again.

On top of the nifty handhelds spurring skyrocketing demand, Nintendo says the ongoing global chip shortage has hampered production substantially – with few indications it’ll end soon.

Restocks of the console happen sporadically throughout the year, and sometimes without any kind of heads-up.

Your best chance is to keep a close eye on retailers, and act fast when it’s back in stock – like by signing up with a Nintendo Switch stock tracker, like Visualping, to simply alert you when stock becomes available.

Especially during the holiday shopping season, like the best of Walmart Black Friday deals and Best Buy Black Friday deals, Switch stock would replenish, only to be depleted soon after. Those with a stock tracker were more likely to score the Switch because they were notified of the restock faster than anyone else manually checking retailers for updates.

Here are some quick and easy tips and tricks for scoring the Nintendo Switch – including how to sign up with a Nintendo Switch OLED stock tracker, Visualping.

Nintendo Switch OLED Stock Tracking: Retailers to Watch

To help you search for when the Nintendo Switch OLED has a store restock, here are several of the best restock links below.

Even better, skip bookmarking these pages and repeatedly checking them for updates. Sign up with Visualping to monitor several of these pages automatically, and get restock alerts when the console is back in stock.

Set up takes two minutes. You can also monitor any web pages, from any retailer or seller page, you want.

  • Nintendo: Switch OLED (White) | Switch OLED (Neon Blue/Red)
  • Amazon: Switch OLED (White) | Switch OLED (Neon Blue/Red)
  • B&H Photo: Switch OLED w/ White Joy-Con | Switch OLED w/ Red and Blue Joy-Con
  • Best Buy: Switch OLED (White) | Switch OLED (Neon Blue/Red)
  • GameStop: Switch OLED (White) | Switch OLED (Neon Blue/Red)
  • Target: Switch OLED (White) | Switch OLED (Neon Blue/Red)
  • Walmart: Switch OLED (White) | Switch OLED (Neon Blue/Red)

While the retailers above are some of the most well-known stores that stock the Nintendo Switch OLED, you can also find the console from other outlets, like the few listed below.

Just be sure to check the price before you complete the purchase – including for bundles, some sellers may offer the console at higher prices than the system originally retailers for.

  • Adorama: Switch OLED (White) | Switch OLED (Neon Blue/Red)
  • Newegg: Switch OLED (White) | Switch OLED (Neon Blue/Red)
  • StockX: Switch OLED (White) | Switch OLED (Neon Blue/Red)

Top Tips for Buying Nintendo Switch OLED

1. Be prepared

Before any restock takes place, make sure you have your payment details pre-saved on your account. Stock typically goes fast during restocks, so if you’re spending time entering your credit card number in the system, then that’s time you could have spent hitting “complete purchase”, instead – ahead of others.

2. Monitor various retailers at once

I’ve heard the advice gamers should pick a couple of their favorite retailers, and closely monitor those pages – rather than monitoring various retailers simultaneously, and potentially overlooking a restock and missing out.

I couldn’t disagree more.

As you can see from the above list, there are an awful lot of retailers to choose from – monitor them all. Just don’t do it manually – sign up with a simple stock tracker that’ll automatically do all the checking for you. That’ll increase your odds of securing some Nintendo Switch stock much more than only keeping an eye on a couple – and keeping an eye on them manually.

3. Sign up with a stock tracker

Some retailers offer to notify you when they have the Nintendo Switch OLED in stock. I don’t recommend this route. For one thing, not every retailer offers these – Best Buy doesn’t, and Amazon is very selective for the products that’ll get this feature.

For another thing, retailer alerts aren’t reliable. Many complain they signed up for restock alerts from a retailer, only to get bombarded with ads and marketing campaigns. And, if the restock alert showed up, it was noticeably delayed.

4. Sign in to retailers

Sign in to your account ahead of time! If you don’t already have an account, make one. Don’t waste precious time signing into your account.

Only buy from official retailers; if you see someone selling this console on Twitter, it’s probably a scam.

5. Don’t give up

If you immediately see “Out of Stock” during a drop, try refreshing the page a few times. Retailers have been releasing their consoles in small batches during restocks to prevent resellers from snatching them all up immediately. These staggered drops have been known to go on for upwards of a half-hour, so it’s worth sticking around for a few extra minutes.

Finally, while it may feel like you’ll never get hold of a Nintendo Switch OLED, it’s important to keep trying.

There will be plenty of restocks in the coming months. If you follow these handy tips above, you’ll successfully score a console at some point.

Get Restock Alerts with a Nintendo Switch OLED Stock Tracker


Visualping is a simple and free inventory checker that provides in stock alerts when a particular product you want goes back in stock.

You can stay on top of Nintendo Switch OLED restocks, without all the manual work involved in repeatedly checking various retailers and web pages for restocks yourself.

What is Visualping?

With over 1 million users, Visualping is a website change detection and monitoring tool, that has been mentioned by NBC, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes and Politico, among other press, as a simple and easy-to-use tool for getting price drop alerts.

How does it work?

When it detects a page change – such as the original “Out of Stock” label being replaced with the “Back in Stock” or “Add to Cart” label. The alert includes a screenshot of the web page, with all the changes highlighted for you to see.

There’s also a link, at the bottom of the alert, so you can navigate to your monitored page and make your purchase – promptly, before the restock catches on and everyone else rushes to snag the product for themselves.

To check for changes, Visualping takes automatic screenshots of the product page at regular intervals – every 5 minutes, 30 minutes, hourly, daily, etc – and compares each image to the last to check for changes.

Is it free?

Visualping is free, with several affordable subscription options for higher frequency monitoring. If you’re looking for a product as in-demand as the PS5, for instance, you can automatically check the page every 5 minutes.

Is it More Than a Nintendo Switch OLED Inventory Tracker?


Visualping can be used for restock alerts to monitor any specific products you can think of – it’s often used as a PS5 stock checker and Xbox Series X stock tracker, for example.

It’s also a price tracker. You can use it to monitor specific retailers for the deals you want, like for Amazon price tracking, Walmart price tracking and Best Buy price tracking.

Or, you can use it to monitor several different retailers at once, which is particularly useful during the holiday sales events – like for Black Friday deal alerts and Cyber Monday deal alerts, more generally.

And getting setup is easy.

To add items to a watchlist, simply repeat this process with each product page URL you want automatically monitored for changes.

And you’re done!
