Any place in Sydney where I can hire a Nintendo Switch for a few weeks

My wife is a big fan of Pokemon Go and she wants to try out Pokemon Let's Go. Is there any shops in Sydney where I can hire the console for a few weeks (I know places where I can hire the game). I am almost certain, after a few weeks, she will not play anymore.

I try googling but I cannot find any.

One alternative I can think of is "Buy" and "Return" at retailers such as Target or BigW, but I don't want to do that.

  • Hi - not sure about renting but you can pick them up not too expensive on gumtree, use for a few weeks and then sell it right after. Similar to your "buying" and returning suggestion - but more morally correct.

  • Yeah buy, try and then sell. You'd probably make close to your money back. I'd recommend Just Dance, awesome game

  • Buy it from the current EBGames Ebay deal for $359, play for a few weeks and sell it easily afterwards for over $300.

  • Maybe she'd like some other games too? There's lots of awesome games for more casual players

  • Just buy one mate 300 something is cheap as happy wife = happy life

  • Used Switch's retain their value quite well, I can almost guarantee it'd be cheaper to buy and resell than hire. Another option is getting a used one from EBGames, which I'm pretty sure you can return for a full refund no questions asked in the first month (do confirm that though).

  • There is one in Parramatta westfield where you can rent consoles etc.

    Change of mind returns usually require item to be in saleable condition..

  • If it's for Pokemon Go she'll probably want to keep using it to transfer Pokemon to Let's Go to keep getting access to the Mystery Box in Go.

    • ^ Exactly this. I thought I was gonna sell Let's Go after I was done but need to get my Meltans….

      PoGo is what drives me to pick up my Switch at least once a week
