How To Use BrickSeek To Find A Nintendo Switch
Players can save time and frustration by using BrickSeek to see which stores around them have Switches in stock.
Finding a Nintendo Switch has become fairly difficult. Unlike with most products, people can't just waltz into a store and pick up a Switch system off the shelf, because the retailer is more than likely sold out. Sure, interested buyers could make phone calls to several different stores in their area to see if any places are stocking the console, but that's old-fashioned. Tech-saavy consumers prefer using BrickSeek, an online inventory checker, to see where the system is available of all retailers within a set radius.
If you haven't heard of BrickSeek or haven't used inventory checkers before, worry not. We've got all the crucial steps needed to find a local Nintendo Switch outlined below.
1.) Head over to BrickSeek.
It's at BrickSeek.com.
2.) Click the image for your preferred retailer.
Lowe's and Office Depot don't stock the Switch, so the only real choices here are between Walmart and Target.
3.) Find the product's SKU number.
BrickSeek finds products by searching inventories for items with a specific Stockkeeping Unit number. The site features an SKU Finder for people who need to look up a product's SKU, but for people specifically looking for the Nintendo Switch, we'll save you the trouble:
Walmart - Nintendo Switch SKU 55449983
Target - Nintendo Switch with Gray Joy-Cons - 207-29-1000
Target - Nintendo Switch Breath of the Wild Edition - 207-30-7012
4.) Type in your zip code.
This is the final step in locating current stock. BrickSeek will check every location of a specific retailer within about 50 miles, and will report back with the on-hand stock and price, where available.
That's it! With a little bit of due diligence, players should be well on their way to finding a Nintendo Switch system near them. And, for all those who can't locate a Switch nearby, BrickSeek allows users to subscribe to individual product updates, presumably in order to stay on top of when new stock has arrived. Just be forewarned that this requires signing up for a BrickSeek account.
