Well I finally got a dispatch email and a Royal mail tracking number, thanks stock informer 👍
guest623556 5/8/2020 9:09:
Was yours standard free delivery or for a nominated day?
kendoguk 5/8/2020 9:46:
Mine was standard, where I live I could not choose a day.
mas 5/8/2020 10:44
Hopefully I get an update today as well as I ordered with standard delivery
guest627595 5/8/2020 1:05:
Just has my cancellation email
sturdi01 5/8/2020 1:09:
My order got cancelled too 👎
kendoguk 5/8/2020 2:24:
It's still in stock at Argos is that helps.
akgaynor24 5/8/2020 1:37:
Got my dispatch email! Hopefully it comes in the next few days. I got standard delivery but hopefully it doesn't take a whole week.
simon9732 5/8/2020 1:48:
mine got dispatched to
kendoguk 5/8/2020 2:23:
It's 48 royal mail delivery on mine so it shouldn't take a week
neonpsn 5/11/2020 11:47
Mine arrived this morning from standard delivery, so shouldn't take long!
guest620454 5/11/2020 9:39:
Mine also arrived this morning with standard delivery, ordered Thursday, sent via Royal Mail 48hrs x

My girlfriend received her order from Currys this morning (order placed on the 7th) and we are thinking of returning it. The console came in that terrible grey shipping bag and the console box inside is in terrible condition! All 4 corners are bashed and there's a massive dent on the front. I was honestly expecting better! I got mine from Very on the same day which was also delivered today in a massive cardboard box and it came in pristine condition! Am I exaggerating? It seems like the console from Currys was handled badly and might have been damaged.
akgaynor24 5/11/2020 1:51:
It may have been damaged while in transit. Mine was delivered today and the box is okay. And the actual switch is in perfect condition.
yiannis 5/11/2020 3:41:
Was it also in that gray plastic bag or did they put it in a box first?
akgaynor24 5/11/2020 4:45:
Yeah it was in the grey bag, but the box was not damaged inside. There was a bit of scuffing but I think that was just from being handled and everything inside the box was well wrapped and not damaged at all.
yiannis 5/11/2020 4:58:
Thanks for your message. I'm not going to risk it, our box is pretty beat up. Not going to open and check in case they don't accept the return. I still think it's unacceptable for them to ship such an expensive product without any protection.
lee_loves_gaming 5/11/2020 7:44:
Mine came today in that lovely grey bag but all is ok with the device. I’m more worried on the fact Royal Mail rang my bell and when I went to answer the door the package was on my doormat but the postman had long gone lol he didn’t even wait to see me pick it up. They fully don’t care!
guest620454 5/11/2020 9:38:
Mine arrived today in a grey bag, all was fine inside x
guest620454 5/11/2020 9:42:
A huge thank you to Stock Informer & ***** ******, our Switch arrived this morning! Would never have got one without you. Those who are still trying, don’t give up, you will get one! Thank you again & good luck to all x
hjbgn 5/12/2020 2:39:
i've been trying since the start of march. It's not worth even thinking about anymore as theres just too many people and bots instantly snagging them. Looks like i won't be getting one for at least another month. I've been asked 'any switches today' by my 3 boys every single day. Hate to disappoint them.
tadders 5/12/2020 9:32:
Received emails from Curry's overnight to say that they're no longer going to stock the grey or neon Switches anymore... thankfully I managed to get one from them last week but I didn't remove my notifications from them about the restock.
celine: ) 5/12/2020 4:09:
They always say that and they always come back in stock. I got similar email last week. Anyway at least you have a switch. My ACNH switch got delivered yesterday from Smyths!
guest496861 5/13/2020 8:53:
This normally means there going to get them the next day, keep checking x
guest566154 5/12/2020 10:04
amazon uk taking neon pre orders at 299
jmh20 5/14/2020 5:17:
Does anyone know if the most recent stock altert was genuine/had been successful? I kept constantly trying from 5:05 - 5:10 but couldn't even add the product to my basket because it said it was sold out, other times when I refreshed the page and saw the add basket option light it, it'd say there's been a problem. Also received no email from Currys talking about new stock despite signing up for it.
ellemay 5/14/2020 5:25:
Hey there Yh I totes agree with you I signed up for the email me when back in stock but never received one and I was on the website don’t think it was genuine just a false alarm hope we get one soon
jmh20 5/14/2020 5:38:
It's happened again, for the 5:31 stock alert - still unavailable. It might be worth keeping an eye out today in case this is some indication of Curry's receiving stock but maybe not available for purchase yet. I might just be talking nonsense though.
ellemay 5/14/2020 6:09:
No your probably right
guest496861 5/14/2020 8:16:
I’ve been on here a while. Curry’s normally email saying they won’t come back in stock, then the next day they get them. Keep your eyes peeled. It’s how I got mine. Always pay for next day delivery because they prioritise these orders first. Good luck people. I just browse on here for a mate, I luckily got one after about tjree weeks of hunting, it is just pure luck unfortunately x
greig2 5/14/2020 10:56
The early AM stock is most likely relisting from cancelled orders and therefore only 1 or 2 units available.
123abstar 5/15/2020 12:05
Well, I paid for a switch with Currys on the 7th and a few of us were told they sold out fast but would be sending our ones out as they restock. This hasn't happened yet so I assume anything getting listed as in stock now will enjoy taken off and given to those of us that have been waiting since the 7th.
harry11 5/14/2020 1:32:
Has anyone experienced the following as well? Got order confirmed on the 7th in the afternoon. I then got got an email in the evening saying they needed to cancel as no stock,,, However, they emailed me back on the 8th saying they ave now been informed that this item will be available for delivery within the next 7 days. If so, did you get any news from Currys? Been waiting on the phone to get an update for 1h35 minutes now 😡
dubs02 5/14/2020 2:56:
I think like 1200 units are coming in
harry11 5/14/2020 4:11:
Thanks Dubs2 - finger crossed I will get an udpate tomorrow
guest627595 5/14/2020 8:59:
No news but this has happened to me as well - had no luck with the email or phone line either. Fingers crossed x
ellemay 5/14/2020 10:19
Hey there guys just spoke to Currys and they said they should be putting them up this week if not the beginnings of next the latest and like you said it’s a big order 1200 fingers crossed x hopefully we will all get one
dubs02 5/15/2020 11:58
I’ve heard now we have to wait till June🤔Can anyone confirm this?
123abstar 5/15/2020 12:00
Same here. Originally cancelled then told they will send my item out as stock arrives. I've been on hold to customer services for 40mins thus far with no progress. Live chat said when the stock comes in, we will get an update but call customer services for more details. Basically, being sent from pillar to post.
jmolo93 5/15/2020 2:46:
Wait, it’s not until June for the stock replenish?
ellemay 5/15/2020 6:49:
Hey guys I spoke to someone on customer services and they said this week if not early next week
sew 5/16/2020 1:52:
I have ordered a switch like others on the 7th, had the cancellation eMail and then one after to say they have stock from their supplier coming in ready for delivery within 7 days. Has anyone who ordered on the 7th with standard delivery had the dispatch email yet?
brknshmn 5/16/2020 2:11:
I ordered two (neon) from them. First one from their main site, second from their ebay site about 30 minutes later (a gift for a relative and another for our family so we can play games against the relative. The first order arrived on Tuesday. The second ebay one has still not dispatched and now they have had more neon consoles in and appear to have sold them to new customers.
sew 5/16/2020 8:31:
I have just received a dispatch email for dpd hopefully you will get one soon! Was worried it was going to be cancelled
guest650022 5/16/2020 4:11:
I have spoken with Curry's , they have no idea when new stock will arrive. Like a lot of other customers I have placed my order on the 7th
guest650022 5/16/2020 4:12:
They never anything about 1200 unit...
tiagogaspar98 5/17/2020 1:01:
Hello guys I've been following this website for about 3 weeks now. And since then I also had emails from Currys saying that they would not restock the Nintendo switches (both colours) anymore. However I found out that nearly every 2/3 days they restock at 5am. Last Thursday I saw that there was stock available at 5 am. So yesterday I woke up again at 5 just to check and I managed to get one. So my suggestion is wake up at 5 and check it for about half an hour if they are available. Hope this helps.
greig2 5/17/2020 1:30:
Usually from cancelled orders. Great execution to grab yourself one though, haha.
bumblebutt9 5/19/2020 8:36:
Managed to order twice with curry’s in the early hours of the morning and on both occasions my order has been cancelled and refunded the next day. I will keep trying!
guest649028 5/19/2020 8:49:
Just had a email from them that they will NOT be getting either finish back in stock.
katrina edmands 5/19/2020 1:58:
They say this all the time x
superjack 5/31/2020 8:36:
Hi. No switches now for the best part of two weeks and no there are no lites available either! Is this in preparation for their shops re opening? Seems strange for them to have none for this long.
will12 5/31/2020 11:54
Perhaps Amazon has priority over the over shops, as it has more warehouses, more employees meaning they can hold more safety?
guest483036 6/9/2020 1:49:
Stores aren’t opening properly, just for pick up. They also have nothing in their warehouse
maryt 7/22/2020 10:45
i got this email on Monday 20/7/20. Find something else you love. Just to say the item you asked us to email you about, Switch - Neon Red & Blue, won’t be coming back in stock. But we can still help you get it right. Why not check out the rest of the range now? I was gutted,as we were hoping to get a switch for our son's birthday this Sunday. The tone of the message is very final and most people reading it, would take it to mean that they would not be restocking the item at all in the future. I managed to get a Nintendo Lite from the local supermarket. Shocked to get email from Currys this morning saying the item I wanted was back in stock. So really confused as to why they send misleading messages like this. Going to get a Nintendo Switch for Christmas for all the kids instead..
deano 1 7/22/2020 12:07
I don,t trust curry’s on items like this they very quickly take your cash only to then cancel your orders then you have to wait at least five working days to get your cash back there not for me I purchased from Nintendo uk yesterday and would rather wait for them to send me my switch bundle than buy of curry’s for me buyers beware..
jolenebell 7/22/2020 2:02:
Ordered at 5:30am, called at 9:30 to check they had actually got them after being disappointed by Nintendo. Just had my dispatch email saying delivery tomorrow!!!! Thanks Stock informer!
guest773669 7/25/2020 11:41
Saying in stock but as soon as I complete transaction I get an email saying my order has been cancelled (I assume due to low/no stock)
simon9732 7/25/2020 11:57
yes same here.
simon9732 7/26/2020 12:05
Have u ordered any other switchs form currys before?
deano 1 7/26/2020 12:16
Hello I got one they have taken payment and I have received relevant emails so looking good first time buying this from currys good luck don,t give up you will get one even if not currys😊

niamhmcg14 7/29/2020 11:11
