Wonder if SDM received them. Would totally get it from there just for points
They do, ask someone if it's not on display. My shoppers had a bunch in the back room. Picked one up on a recent seniors day. Worked out to like 46$ after tax with promos.

I bought mine at SDM the day it was “re released” a few months ago. Had an offer in the app for PC points that weekend so it worked out nicely.

Amazon sucks. There is no such thing as a hot deal there. Prime day was a joke. Thought I’d get a fire tablet.....amazon cancelled it on me JUST last week. Prime membership has been terminated. Screw you amazon.

I think its the fact that NES Classic is still hard to find?
It's not.

It's a hot deal because of it's rare availability..

It's been approved by the mods many time..
It's nowhere near "rare", or there would be a resell market for this the same way the first release had. Yes, unfortunately the mods have for some reason allowed a billion S/NES stock threads to be created constantly for a consistantly restocked at various retailers regular MSRP item.

I see them all the time at locations for those two retailers as well as at EB.

So what? He said local and they're always around in stock at local retailer locations unless you live in Nunavut or Yukon or something like some member argued in another thread. Just because it's "rare" in Nunavut doesn't mean it's really rare. It's because you live in Nunavut.

I’ve been over this many times with others as well. People seem to think it’s a hot deal because of availability.

One of my peeves is people posting anything and everything in the Hot deals forum

This is not the proper forum for Nintendo stock alerts
It is annoying, but usually they don't amount to many threads. S/NES threads have been ridiculous though. At some points, there have been multiple simultaneous threads created and running on the same day. There have been more S/NES threads in Hot Deals than probably all the iPhone/Samsung new phone release threads combined.

Availability for anybody who gets off their behind to check in store instead of only trying to land one online is guaranteed and with minimal effort. Even if stock updates are needed, there is a video game subforum where people who want one should be able to check for threads like these. Yet mods want to spoon feed those people because it's easier for them to see these constant threads in Hot Deals instead. If these people can't be expected to go to the appropriate forum for this, it's no wonder the same people still can't find one when they can literally go to stores not 5 min around them and find them in stock at some point (unless they're in Nunavut). I suggested a master thread be used in Ongoing Hot Deals and one mod moved a thread there, but nobody uses it for updates and mods don't merge new threads that have been created with that one.

The same reason the consoles get sold out so quickly. Re sellers trying to take advantage of lack of supply.

I can’t believe Nintendo still can’t make these systems readily available. There’s obviously a demand for them.
I understand when they do this on launch, but at this point it’s just ridiculous
It's not hard to find. Yesterday I went to bestbuy and Walmart they have lots of them in stock. It's the snes classic that's always gone.

Bezos likely has little to do with it. I never mentioned Bezos. But amazon does suck.

I wonder when someone post about the NES Controllers availability when they become in Stock, if it would help or annoyed the retro pie user...lol

Espacially if the NES Controllers are 4X more hard to find in Canada
