Nintendo Switch Animal Crossing Special Edition $469 + Delivery @ Big W

970

Hopefully with the constant stock, scalpers might give up already.

EDIT: Should also mention, try calling JBHifi around you, they might also carry 1 or 2 from their allotments if people didn't preorder it at the local store.

    I dunno if it's constant stock as OP mentioned, EB Games/JB Hi Fi etc had these up as a second round of preorders available to be released today (10/07/20) so might just be these stores getting their allotments!

    • +5 votes

      Yep this isn't constant stock - this is the last drop

      •  

        100% last drop

        •  

          Last drop like forever or last drop for now?

    • +1 vote

      wait EB games/JBHifi had another round of pre-orders again? Or am i reading wrong and you're saying pre-orders from June are to be sent out today (10/7/20)?

      • +1 vote

        This is from the same batch as Big W and Target didn't have pre-orders

        •  

          Yep that's it

      •  

        they're not selling out as quickly as the previous releases, might be supply actually meeting demand now.

    • +11 votes

      If your daughter plays Animal Crossing already, does she know that her save wont transfer to this new switch? Because if not, she may not be happy haha.

      •  

        ah that sucks.. but they say its coming

    •  

      Why would you sale the old switch ?

  •  

    thanks. got 1.

    wtf do people actually scalp these console? It's just a skin of a console which you can buy online?

        OMG BARBIE HAS A NEW HATTTTTTTTT
        take my money nowwwwwwwwwwwwww

        •  

          exactly. lol

    •  

      There's a limited edition etching on the back of the actual console and the unique colour scheme for the joy-con, which cannot be officially purchased separately.

      • +1 vote

        wrong. it's only a special edition. and that's why Nintendo keep releasing batches as long as it can boost sales. limited edition is more about one time only release.

    • +1 vote

      There's not enough "margin" to scalp it really. Unless it appreciates in the future you are making $100 after fees and charges. I haven't even accounted for time spent in postage, transport, etc.

      Don't forget there is a collectors market as well.

      • +1 vote

        $100 for mailing a package is a good return to a lot of people. You're imaging a scalper as some one without ample free time.

        They also don't scalp one item. If they're mailing out X a week, $100 on these AC switches is just fine. They come in a postage box already, they just relabel them and drop them off in bulk.

        i sold my jbhifi preorder for $905aud after tax and ebay fees. shipping is on me, which will cost roughly $60 to the US.

        Still a tidy $370 profit. don't forget the global collectors market.

        • +1 vote

          That's insane. Sold to the US?

        •  

          what what we're in Australia how do you sell to the US and people actually pay that amount?

          • +1 vote

            @HelpfulMilk: ebay.com and yes they do. i did get lucky though, plenty listed for less now still not sold.

            end of the day, if you have the capital to play with, you can take the risk of a 90% RoR with these switches.

      •  

        $100 to go to the post office and ship a package? Who's that not good enough for?

      •  

        not if you don't use Ebay

    •  

      Another 7/8 popped up on eBay today

      •  

        That's gonna put pressure on the scalper prices.

  •  

    THANKS OP got 1 finally

  •  

    don't have a switch.. gather this doesn't include any games?

    •  

      Doesn't include any games.

    •  

      No games included

  •  

    Thank you.
    Got an order in.

  •  

    here we go again

  •  

    OzBargain… aka NintendoSwitchDeals.com… and some other deals.

    •  

      Why do you hate Switches so much?

      • +1 vote

        I don’t. Just incredible how fast these things are selling. People are going nuts for them. It feel like most deals are for this bloody console these days. Regardless of whether it’s even at a reduced price.

        •  

          I think we get more Techfast deals than Switch.
          We also get an abundance of Amazon deals so I don’t think it’s correct to say there’s an overload of Switch deals.

        •  

          Maybe it's because people are going nuts for them that there are so many deals appearing on the front page. If no-one was interested, they would just get buried somewhere along with those deals for, I dunno, fridge magnets. It's not really that half of everyone's posts are about Switches, just the highlighted ones are.
          I didn't go for this one though, can't justify paying extra for a different design :)

            @diamond: Say… you got any leads on fridge magnets?

    Finally!!! After missed target, jb, gamesman, eb and etc etc! Thank you!

  •  

    there needs to be a deal on the joycons. they break with hardly any use.

    I already had to send a paid back for repairs.

    They should be $40 to $50 for a pair max.

    •  

      I've had mine since launch day March 2017 and they still work normally.

    Thanks!

    took a whole half hour this time to sell out. i fear for my investment :P didnt get any this batch, my JBHifi preorder should get to me soon I hope.

    •  

      They probably got much more of an allotment as I don't think they got any the last time around.

      •  

        almost certain amazon au will have a release soon then. stock is certainly making the rounds.

    • +1 vote

      Amazon is the last one I think. After that then this edition looks like it's done and dusted. Your investment is fine :P

                        @qzcbmo: how? All your 2 quantity orders got cancelled right? so if 9 orders, how can it be xx?

                        •  

                          @skido: happen to have 1 unit order and 2 units order mixed. that's essiential of the BOT mate!

                          •  

                            @qzcbmo: imagine if they cancelled all the multiple orders to same address. lmao

                            •  

                              @skido: not same address. not same payment mathod. so I was so confused. BTW, no bot involved. I'm the bot.

                              @skido: only thing I could think is because of paypal. It's all gone. don't think it anymore. Now lets face the AMAZON : The Last Stand

      •  

        has amazon ever gotten stock for the limited edition switch? I checked camelcamelcamel and it says no data from amazon au

        •  

          Amazon AU had it up for preorder back when it first released and sold out, hasn't had any stock since.

          •  

            @Megumin: the march release don't count. seems all retailers get a new allotment for jun/july.

    My rough guess is they didn't receive many - maybe 400 units

    Does it come with the game as well?
