Now in Stock is your best bet.

Someone will make a thread when preoders are up for another retailer, but that depends on you being on GAF at that time.

Isn't JPN the preferred acronym for Japan? I know it's not intentional, but "Jap" is a racist slur.

NowInStock is probably better since you'd have to be actively monitoring the forum when it happened to notice it. Honestly, just set up Twitter. I don't really use it other than to get notified from Wario64. He's a good balance of game deals, pricing errors, key gaming news, and just a small bit of entertainment news. It's the right balance of all that with a focus on the deals.

It was up for nearly 45 minutes. That was one long-ass dump.

I just might give away one of my two SNES Classics during the first season of my upcoming podcast. It would be amazing way to kick start the podcast. What do you guys think?

Do you simply add each of the retailers you want to watch and set it up for email notifications? I figured that's the best option since I'm not always on the computer.

Followed the instructions on Now In Stock to forward their google group emails to text my phone.

Stupidly missed the Walmart pre-orders while I was literally sitting at the dining room table doing NOTHING. I will not miss the next one!

Edit: Thanks for the great OP! Didn't really care about the NES Classic but the SNES was my childhood and so this is really important to me.

NowInStock covers all of the major retailers. I actually joined their SNES Classic notification Google Group weeks ago (which is essentially only used to notify you, it's not for any actual discussion). Got the alert from there tonight right when this all started. There's instructions there in the group's only topic:

Damn. This is why we can't have nice things...

Perhaps in a few years as a subscriber award then - when I'm all established.

Nah, it's rare for retailers to put up preorders at the exact same time if it's unannounced.

Do you guys have both the normal NIS alert AND their Google Group email alert? Since there's so many subscribers for the normal alert, you really need to do the Google alert too. You can have it sent as a text anyway if you give them your email-to-text address.

I don't know if it's ok to share or use this link since obviously the owner makes some money with it (ads and referrals) but I used it and in a week I managed to preorder 3 I'm not scalping you monsters! >> one for me, one for my wife's brother for next Christmas... he had NES Mini last year and another one for my brother

The name of the site is misleading but it's SNES stock tracked here.

Pre-ordering a SNES mini in PAL territories is "pre-ordering a SNES mini Easy Mode"

We might have to bribe or kill someone to secure one here in North America....

It comes with 2 controllers. If you really need another, I think you can use a Wii Classic Controller. If you want something more authentic, there are these official Super Famicom Classic Controllers for Wii that should work too, but they're not cheap. There are also some knockoff ones, but read the reviews before you buy one.

The listing on Walmarts website can be viewed again, if you guys want to add the alert this time and also feel more assured that this wasn't some sort of accident as some people from other sites tried to imply.

I just nabbed the last one of those off of Amazon. Thanks so much for the help, I had no idea Nintendo had made those for Club members!
