Your best bet for guaranteeing one at this point is to go to Gamestop, they're still taking in store orders for their next shipment whenever that might be. You'll probably get one in a week or two.

If I'm not mistaken, the current preorder at GameStop is only for the $440 bundle. Right?

My GS told me that they're only taking orders for the bundle.

Walked into a gamestop in Vegas yesterday and they had 3 grey units behind the counter. Didn't ask about them, since I already have one, so I am not sure if they were for bundles or not.

YMMV but I just used brickseek and noticed one store went from sold out to having 5 in stock.  I went and bought the only one they had on the shelf.   I wasn't willing to jump through a lot of hoops but I'm so happy I got this system so relatively easily.

There's a search bar on Brickseek.

Right above where you type it in.

Walmart sku 55449983

Although the exact same # of stock has been showing, since last Wednesday.

For stores around me, at least.
So I wouldn't trust those numbers.

I returned my unopened switch to bestbuy and they all acted surprised.  I didn't ask but I guess they haven't gotten many returns.  I assumed they would have to ship it back to nintendo, but they made a point of confirming that I said I hadn't opened it and they looked inside to see, so maybe they are able to sell it or let an employee buy it as an open item or something.  Merry Christmas to whoever got it.  I haven't seen or predict much incentive to keep it yet for the next 8 months at least, like an ambassador program or other freebie live service that they hinted at, so I couldn't justify paying msrp and keeping it for a year or so without much to play on it and possibly having the controller glitch.  Backlog on older systems is probably approaching 1000 including zeldas after majoras mask.  If any discounted or bundle deal pops up in the meantime I will probably snatch one though and be assured to have a fixed controller.  I will keep the games and accs I already bought at GCU + VisaCheckout$25 off.  Don't expect them to go much lower.

You haven't played the Zelda games after Majora's mask yet? I think it's time to evaluate your spare time situation and get on that!

Can you alphabetize by state on the NES classic like the rest of the sheet? It makes things alot easier. Thanks!

Anyone else pretty much just going to wait until the summer to buy one? I know my desire to get one has waned.

Pretty much given up finding one, since I have a narrow window of time during which I could have really dug into Zelda.  Perhaps after summer, which usually involves a lot of my downtime being taken up with house maintenance and other tasks.

Yea both of my targets still have 2 blue/red and 2 grey's had them since monday. I would definitely check your local target if you are looking for one.
