So it turns out they did deactivate my red card and I didn't even activate the forced "upgraded" MasterCard they gave me. Looks like my preorder will be lost when they try to charge it. Called target cs and wasted 2 hours getting bounced to multiple people saying another department could help when they couldn't. Online cs is nice but one lady in offshore redcard services was really rude and just angrily repeated her script that she can activate my new card and hung up on me.
Was really going to cancel my redcard but can't give up 5% for bad service. Also read in the insert the new redcard has warranty doubling and price protection which was one of the few deficiencies about the old redcard.
I'm sorry to hear this. That horrible customer service experience sounds frustrating as all hell. That was my worst fear with my Target order. I put off activating that mastercard that I never ing asked for. My order shipped on the 26th, but it has no tracking yet. The estimated delivery date is Oct 6th. I'm still not activating that damn card until I have an SNES controller in my hands playing some games.
I just read this has the same guts as the Mini NES Classic just different casing. I’m still on the fence but after reading this I think I’m passing up on my impulsiveness lol.
I do not understand. Is this a troll post? Is this a legitimate complaint?
It's not just, "feels like," that is a fact. People have already taken the SNES classic apart to find that the insides are exactly the same as the one in the NES Classic. In short, you are buying the same thing as the NES Classic, but inside a different casing and for $10 more.

The SF2 rom is already up on some sites, so basically if you have an NES Classic, you could (if you haven't already) made it into an SNES Classic.
I already had little interest in this thing, and now this pretty much puts at zero.
I'm not trying to be facetious. I seriously do not understand what you are explaining. Can you please help me understand?
This is what I'm understanding so far. Nintendo was supposed to spend unnecessary time and money designing a new system from scratch because this system has 16 bit roms instead of 8 bit roms? Just about any old PC from this century can run these roms. What we are paying for is the plastic SNES casing. I assume that Nintendo is a business that wants to make a profit. Why would they spend money on a new design if they don't have to? If they increase spending on designing new components, that spending would decrease revenue. Companies like to increase revenue.
If you want to turn your NES classic into an SNES classic to save $80, that's a good idea to save spending $80. I grew up playing the SNES and would happily pay $80+tax for the nostalgic casing that brings back good memories of my childhood.
The SNES classic is $20 more. I could be incorrect (about many things in this post) but I think some people who want 2 controllers don't mind paying $20 more this time.
Please correct me if I misunderstood anything. I welcome criticism. I am truly curious about this. Maybe I am over analyzing a couple joke posts.
