After watching the Nintendo Switch event I knew I was going to be purchasing one so the following morning, I hopped on to BestBuy.ca and pre-ordered mine as soon as I could.
I messed up my original order by using my shipping address as my billing address and my billing address as my shipping address. After a couple of calls to Best Buy customer service, my order was corrected and good to go with one small problem…………………..
The launch date that Best Buy has for my order and for the Nintendo Switch is March 31st? This doesn’t make any sense as the console is launching on the 3rd of March.
I’ve reached out to Best Buy on Twitter to clarifiy.
Hey @BestBuyCanada! What’s the deal with the Nintendo Switch release date? My order is showing March 31st? It realses on the 3rd?

I have read conflicting information saying that Best Buy made a mistake or they intend to launch it on the 31st. I will be sure to update this post with new information as soon as Best Buy responds.
***** UPDATE *****
BestBuy Canada didn’t respond to me at all on Twitter however they did send out a bulk email confirming the date is wrong on everyones preorders. See below.
