Has anyone who preordered on think geek received an email confirmation or order number? I was able to place an order but I haven't received anything.

I got 4 of the crappy think geek BULLcrappers...  (limit of 1 per bundle!)

stores should NOT force you to buy unwanted CRAP

I was upset till I remember I got the Amazon UK order.

Edit: which was apparently cancel with no email notice. 

Mine says "Not Yet Dispatched", so I'm not sure if that means cancelled or not.

There's no way I'm going to keep it, but I was able to successfully order the $250 bundle on ThinkGeek.  I think they killed half of them because suddenly the site worked but almost everything was out of stock.

 

I probably would have actually kept the cheaper two bundles if I could have completed checkout, but oh well.

I'm like 99% sure that's just UK for "Not yet Shipped"

I got the cheapest TG bundle. Sucks but I really want an SNES Classic :(

The solution is simple. Nintendo ups the price to $149.99 and watch the demand and interest drop.


Lol nope. People buy nintendo switch's at 300 to resell for 400. you think 149 is about to stop people from wanting this

I finally got to the "place order" stage of the crap thinkgeek bundles after 20 minutes and got a "item is sold out" error.....

thinkgeek and gamecrap apps are both broken as well. (gamestop site down forever?)

spent the last 2hrs40minutes trying to order this junk.

Honestly, I'm giving up at this point. I don't waste my whole day and have nothing to show for it. Might as well do something else.

It's gonna cut off a lot of the gimmes from people who don't really care about the games and just want to get in on the hype. The Switch hasn't been all that profitable for scalpers. These Classics are, though. It isn't going to happen anyway because this kind of feeding frenzy is what Nintendo wants and more.

Even the $330 think geek bundle is sold out. Isn't a $275-$300 snes classic from ebay better?

I just ordered the $250 bundle as well. I could have sworn it was possible to use GS trade credit or GS giftcards on thinkgeek. I didn't even see the option. Am I making this up? 

 

$250 GS credit vs $250 cash is a big difference for me right now. 

 

I know from experience it's possible to return gamestop.com bundle items to GS stores. Is it possible to return the unwanted thinkgeek items to GS stores?

Unlikely. They very specifically say on the site that you won't be able to return the bundled items.

Spent an hour and a half driving around to GameStops (they're all at least 30 minutes away from me) but I got an in-store pre-order. I know the pre-order frenzy isn't necessarily an indicator of how easy these will be to get come the holiday, but I have zero interest in lining up outside a store on a chilly October morning to find out.

I used GS credit for the NES bundle last month on thinkgeek

And I smartly cancelled that $250 ThinkGeek monstrosity, so if anyone really wants it, maybe it'll pop back up.

I saw that as well. I'm betting you're correct. Is it possible to return any thinkgeek items to GS should have been my question. The employees at my store are pretty cool and would likely try it even if it's against policy. I'm curious if the computer system would allow it.

I thought so. I didn't have the option. Thinkgeek redirected my order to celery.com or something. No option to input a giftcard there either. I must be missing something.

Quick google search suggest that you can not. 

 

According to their website, you can't even return online orders to their OWN B&M stores

 

Although Reddit says that you can, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Those people might have made $250 working their job during the last 3 hours I wasted on this or the couple hours I wasted last night on Best Buy and Amazon.

my fault the one i saw at 280 is "modded" but still a year later getting double. In terms of patient look at how orders sold today its not going to be any different come october/november ; can you blame them for paying 300 now when some rich kids parents are gonna pay 400 in november? lol.

Thank you. I completed the quick google search earlier, but I was hoping to hear from a CAG who attempted it with the NES classic bundles before I lose all hope.

Just got a CONFIRMED order off of Target's website. May be that some slip back in stock as orders are cancelled.
