  • Please DO NOT rely on receiving an email or push notification alert to find you stock. We will send notifications on a case by case basis. It is pointless us sending thousands of notifications if a retailer only has a few units of stock which get snapped up almost immediately. Just leads to further frustration.
  • For very high demand products, don't be surprised if stock sells out in seconds. An online store may have only made a single unit available.
  • Any irregular page refreshing or bot activity will result in an automatic permanent block from our server.
  • Please do not attempt to sell on this forum. There is another well known website for that. Offending posts will be deleted and user accounts suspended without notice.
  • Please refer to our FAQs for further answers to common questions.

Thanks, Admin

i have emailed john lewis they told me they are not going to restock the neon nintendo switch as they told me they removed the stock code for it in the email they sent me as they are not geting new stock for it but they said they have new stock on the way for the grey and the animal crossing edition and this was on the 14/05/2020


hazzap 5/15/2020 1:46:

Thanks for the update! Seems so strange that they'd stop selling such a popular item but oh well!


ben101216 5/15/2020 4:06:

its only the neon one they said they are not expecting stock for but the grey and animal crossing they are but they said they are not expecting the neon so it still might come in the future


cheshirekat 5/15/2020 8:24:

still out of stock for me?


bumblebee210 5/15/2020 8:25:

Literally went in seconds


jmh20 5/15/2020 8:26:

Same. Managed to add to my basket and enter my details within 1minute of getting notification, then when it comes to payment it says out of stock. When I go to the page and refresh it'll switch between saying "3 in stock online" and just the general "add to basket" but whenever you press the add to basket either times, it'll say there's been a technical problem.


jmolo93 5/15/2020 8:28:

I had it in my basket, was gone when I entered my Paypal..Literally seconds


jmh20 5/15/2020 8:33:

It seems like the next best options are Currys, who apparently have a large order of the grey coming in (~1200 units) that should be up within the next few days, or Smyths Toys, who are expecting stock sometime in May. It seems it's wise to create an account beforehand and have your details already entered so as soon as it becomes available you can just add to basket and pay straight away.


simon9732 5/15/2020 9:30:

I thought the order of 1200 was for the neon orders


zander1978 5/15/2020 8:30:

Think ive managed to bag one! got an order confirmation by god they went quick!! cnt belive the demand for these!


guest610904 5/15/2020 8:31:

tried to pay with apple pay and went out of stock just before touch id could confirm!


hazzap 5/15/2020 8:36:

I GOT ONE!! I'm so happy! If you get the 'confirmation of order' email then its deffo on its way!!


ellemay 5/15/2020 9:15:

Congrats I didn’t get it 😭😭😭😭


ellemay 5/15/2020 9:17:

I never even got the notification despite I put my email and signed up


hazzap 5/15/2020 9:56:

The only way I managed to get mine was with google Chrome push notifications. It came through waaaay before the website notified of new stock. If I had waited for the website I would have missed it!! 10/10 recommend setting up Chrome instant push notifications


ellemay 5/15/2020 9:57:

Congrats Greig


administrator 5/15/2020 10:39

I again recommend everyone reads our FAQs, it explains all of this.


simon9732 5/15/2020 9:30:

I got 3 of them.


ellemay 5/15/2020 9:42:

Please give me one 😭😭😭


ben101216 5/15/2020 9:49:

thats just greedy when others are trying to buy them


ellemay 5/15/2020 9:53:

Exactly, I have been trying for weeks I just want one ☝️ 1 please


anonswitch 5/15/2020 9:57:

So you ordered 3 so you can gloat about it to those who are struggling to get 1, then resell 2 of them for £400+?


ellemay 5/15/2020 9:58:



ben101216 5/15/2020 10:02

thats what he'll do just sell them for way more and people try get them for ages and he does that


ellemay 5/15/2020 10:05

Absolutely unfair


simon9732 5/16/2020 3:39:

one for me, my brother and my nephew, I am just happy I managed to get one for myself and my family having tried to get one for a while. God some people are immature on here. U should be happy for other people. Grow up


momod92 5/15/2020 9:48:

guys. they are still selling them on the game website (uk buyers) (They £400 for 2 game bundles)


ben101216 5/15/2020 10:06

i think it might of just been a odd few and not the actually restock


ellemay 5/15/2020 10:09

I hope your right


ben101216 5/15/2020 10:10

well everyone is saying it went too quick and i never got a email off john lewis and apprently is was meant to be around the 20th not the 15th so


ellemay 5/15/2020 10:15

Yh I have even spoke to John Lewis this evening and they said 20th nothing was mentioned about today


ben101216 5/15/2020 10:18

ah okay i just had a rant on email to them about it as been emailing them each day about a date but some reason i never get a date just keep saying regularly check the website for updates and what did they say to you on call i guess


ben101216 5/15/2020 10:18

wonder how others got them though


ellemay 5/15/2020 10:28

Only a few who managed


zander1978 5/15/2020 10:22

defo got the confirmation email, i recommend registering and setting up the push notifications with the audible alert, but you need to be super quick Smile


ben101216 5/15/2020 10:29

push notifications on what


ellemay 5/15/2020 10:32

I have an account with John Lewis but never got a email?


ben101216 5/15/2020 10:42

same so must not of actually been real stock as they didnt email


ellemay 5/15/2020 10:53

Yh exactly


guest652805 5/15/2020 10:41

Game****** have them in stock now, not featured on stockinformer. They are all bundles for £399 with two games but I. Stock nonetheless


jmh20 5/15/2020 10:43

I think Game have had stock for a while, but only from Third Party sellers which is why they're in bundles and priced in ridiculously amounts, £400-600.


ben101216 5/15/2020 10:44

it is expensive though as can get a bundle for £320 or £330 then buy the other game for £45 so like £25 more and have no animal crossing games included


ben101216 5/15/2020 10:47

they are by game but not good bundles though and more expensive than others


guest652805 5/15/2020 10:53

Game weren't showing stock today, they weren't listing at all but are currently. Yep ever so slightly.more than some sites but not a complete rip off. And if you're desperate enough for one that you're discussing stock on a stock notification site, I'd say it's a reasonable deal.


greig2 5/16/2020 3:19:

Dispatched and coming tomorrow! Thank you Stock Informer / John Lewis! 😍 Waited so long for the Grey version.


administrator 5/16/2020 3:25:

Excellent, you were one of the super quick ones! Well done. 👍


umbreon 5/17/2020 12:33

It seemed to have gone so quickly. I was refreshing for a while as none were showing in stock then suddenly 1 showed in stock and when I was about to add it to my cart it was gone


guest658703 5/17/2020 12:46

Same here


leebroath 5/17/2020 12:54

Return logged back into the system...madness how quick it went!


bumblebee210 5/17/2020 2:27:

I did not even get a notification from Stockinformer regarding. Alot of times I don’t get from them, have to keep manually checking. All notifications turned on too 🤔


jmh20 5/17/2020 2:54:

I find having the alarm enabled seems to help me massively - it seem to be the best/quickest alert system on the website. Saying that, the alarm didn't go off for some reason for this update but the stock seemed to have vanished almost as quickly as it was available so it probably wouldn't have made a difference.


bumblebee210 5/17/2020 3:05:

The alarm only works on a desktop not mobile. Stockinformer need to fix a bug in their system as not only myself do not get all the alerts (all registered users)


jmh20 5/17/2020 3:15:

It explains why they don't send notifications for all their stock alerts in their FAQ: ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- "Stock Informer has detected stock but didn't send any emails or push notifications, why not? Although our systems can automatically send notifications when stock is found, on occasions we may decide to review each stock detection on a case by case basis before sending notifications . The reason for this is that if a retailer only has a few units of stock available,there is little point in sending thousands of notifications as by the time people receive and read them the stock will be sold out and gone (especially emails). This just wastes everyones time and adds further frustration. People who use the loud audible alerts option and opted in to the "Full" Push Notifications will always be the first to know about stock and very often snap up a few units of stock before anyone else." ------------------------------------------------------------This seemed to be one of those cases where only a few units were available so notifications weren't sent out.


leebroath 5/17/2020 5:14:

...and in this case there was only 1 Unit for sale (probably a return marked back into the system), so no point sending out a notification.


administrator 5/17/2020 5:34:

bumblebee210 - There is no bug to fix. Please read the sticky post at the top and the FAQs. Completely pointless sending tens of thousands of notifications for 1 unit of stock! Users who opted into the "Full" Push Notifications were sent alerts and most desktop alarms would have gone off. Trust me thousands of people clicked through for that John Lewis alert earlier.


guest629933 5/20/2020 2:03:

Does anyone know if there will be a restock on John Lewis soon?


greig2 5/20/2020 7:54:



guest672972 5/27/2020 9:50:

Went in seconds...


ovi 5/27/2020 9:55:

Literally. I managed to add 1 to the basket but then it was gone lol. Bots most likely


guest672972 5/27/2020 9:56:

Same here, had it in my basket then went to buy and it was gone


guest660069 5/27/2020 10:57

Me too :'(


leebroath 5/27/2020 12:03

There absolutely no point in trying, again it was only 1 available. Another return probably and just marked into the system


happy_2008 5/27/2020 2:14:

Try searching other forums, i've seen a couple for sale at RRP price Smile


simon9732 5/27/2020 5:22:

Really quiet for stock at the moment


tomo182 6/12/2020 9:40:

Boom! Got one!


pineappledope 12/28/2020 11:22

Does anyone know when there will next be a restock? Desperate for one, in grey or neon.


lucy_gj 1/11/2021 10:53

Has anyone got any info about when this will come back in stock ? ive been trying for ages to get one and they never seen to be in stock


mylifeisajoke 1/11/2021 10:31
