I was going to pick up a GCU membership ($30 for two years) because I thought that it included 20% off video game accessories as well, but I guess that I'm wrong about that. Now, I'm not too sure. What are some of the other perks? Do they usually send coupons with any regularity?

When you sign up they do send you coupons, also some preorders that you make online will get you $10 in bonus points to use on bestbuy.com, right now they don't have the list up for the preorders with the bonus points, they usually have them up in April/May time

Yeah, I think that I'll probably pick one up as I'm gonna be trying to pick up a PS4 Pro in the next year or so as well. With that many games/stuff to buy, it'll work itself out. What accessories are you getting with your Switch? I was thinking of getting the charging grip or pro controller but I may just hold off on that. They're just too expensive atm.

I'll likely pick one up sometime after launch, since it is currently sold out everywhere in the USA. I will likely use some of my tax return money this year for it.

It will probably come back in stock on either release day or soon after that

I'm super hyped for the switch. I've got a release day event I'm going to pick mine up at, then going to stream Breath of the wild (also preordered for pickup) immediately after. My goal is to stream it for 72h, but realistically it'll last until I pass out/go to the hospital.

Oh. My. God. I have the WORST luck ever. I finally decide to pickup the Gamer Club Unlocked membership. When I went to BestBuy, I had the following preorder open for the Breath of the Wild Special Edition ($100) open with the preorder button available. I was told by the lady that I could only preorder via the website and to just get the GCU there. I bought the $30 unlock and then 10 minutes later try to preorder/buy the game and now the button has changed to "Coming soon" and I'm unable to preorder...

 

FUUUUUUUUCK.

I never had an original order... :(

 

It more sucks cause I was delaying getting a GCU as long as possible and right when I got it, the thing that I wanted to get became unavailable. Although looking more closely at the Special Edition, I don't really care for the other things included in the package other than the case. I might just preorder the regular version with the discount and I think that there is some kind of $10 rewards points promo for preorders, right? Or am I wrong about that...

There is a $10 rewards points promo, but the games with that promo have not been announced yet, they will probably be announced by either May or after E3, my suggestion is to preorder the original version and hopefully by release day bestbuy will have the special edition, cause they are that type of company to have extras of special editions of games

It can't get any worse, can it?

Well, I guess my Zelda preorder-gate scandal resulted in some positives. Right now, BestBuy's $25 off $100+ deal if you use Visa Checkout is back until 2/22/17 so I was able to get a little extra discount on some Switch shit. Unfortunately, you have to spend at least $100 on your Visa card, so I couldn't use all my giftcards (I used another $15 one that I had), but I picked up a regular Zelda: Breath of the Wild and a Nintendo Switch Pro controller together. I was thinking about maybe getting a Charge Grip but at least with a Pro Controller, get a complete extra controller to use in multiplayer situations. Plus, with the $25 discount, it makes the $70 price more reasonable...

Great minds think alike :D I really want to get 1-2 Switch as well, but $50 is too much. I'll grab it the second it goes on sale.

 

I've watched the unboxing video from the guy who got his Switch 2 weeks early, and I'm so f'n pumped for it. March 3rd can't get here soon enough.

For those getting the Switch and/or with current Nintendo Accounts, you can now add a "User ID" which will apparently be used for the Switch and probably future Nintendo stuff. Claim your dank username before someone else has the chance to.

And about 1.5 weeks left till the Switch hits. It's gonna be so lit.
