Holding something for Sunday means it is in the ad. They want this held for Monday because it is going on planogram which means it will have a spot in the Nintendo aisle. Going through all the trouble to rearrange the Nintendo aisle to include something that is going to sell out in 5 mins is pretty pointless but what do I know. :dunce:

 

Used to work there for years including as a manager and this is totally the stupid shit they would do.

If that's the case, is this going to be a thing where they ticket the items out, or are we going to have to run like hell when they open the doors? Me and my buddy are planning on camping at our local Best Buy, really hoping for a smooth morning lol.

Well, I'm out.  Was going to try to get one for my daughter's uncle for his b-day next month, but some of us work m-f 9-5 jobs. At this point, saving them for monday morning is pretty much catering to the "professional" flippers.



Bored? Too much money than you know what to do with? Why not check out my Amazon Storefront? If you see anything you want, send me a PM! Make an offer, either monetary or trade! Over 2000 items, and more added daily!

I saw shelf tags for them at Walmart around a week and a half before they started getting them in recently.


Once as a kid I cried as my parents drove from ny to nj. That was a far cry.

The real question is will they limit it 1 per customer...I would hope so, anyways. Otherwise the first in line would probably take them all...

Well soccer moms can bring all their kids and probably still grab them up.

Or you could just hire all the panhandlers by the exit ramps!

The planogram spot for the NES classic is going to be Store Pickup Accessories. Also known as the cart of random stuff by customer service when you go to pick up an online order.

That location just adds to the weirdness. Are they expecting enough stock at each store to fill that display?

My Best Buy always puts items behind checkout and does a good job maintaining order. If you're there in time you'll be taken care of.

Depends on the store. I would call before going though as it sounds like a good amount of stores sold them immediately before they were told not to.

Think that'll be the best bet, don't know if they'll tell me for sure if they will have them Monday but I might call a couple best buys in my area tomorrow to see if they'll be available , wish there were another way to check

Mini SNES or Switch XL...which of these will come true in the future? Both? Neither? Only one? So many rumors an speculation...


They need a friggin Switch Pro, cause that thing sounds like the cheapest plasticy POS worthy of an AVGN video like Atari 5200. It breaks in a dozen different ways. You have to wrap it in Shamwows before putting it in the official docking station. It's own screen protectors scratch the damn screen.

Just went to Best Buy and they had a bunch of switches hanging from the ceiling. Apparently you had to ask an employee about them, then he sets up this ladder and races you up it. If you beat him to it, it's yours. We both got pretty heated so I suplexed his ass.

I now own a Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo doesn't want to make $5 a pop on these but they want to limit them enough so scalpers make $100+ on eBay? Collectors item my ass.

Best Buy is Smart with this ad. They know everybody and thre monther, grandmothet, etc eill be lining up for this. Flippers, scalpers have their work cut out. It'll be like a Walmart Black Friday retail opening everybody will be pushing and shoving. And if you don't get a NES Classic, you buy some other shit in the atore, maybe a Switch. Can't wait for youtube videos of someone getting pepper sprayed or something.

Best bet is to call your store. Some reportedly have already sold what they got or are planning to put them out Sunday instead of Monday.

Gonna be difficult to get a Switch, since they're holding them until the 28th.

Guess you could camp out in the store for 4 days.
Hop inside a fridge or dryer maybe.

And every store in the area is going to be sending people there all week to get one when people ask to check stock...
