How to Find NES Classic, Hatchimals, Pokemon Go Plus and New Nintendo 3DS on Black Friday

The most challenging Holiday gifts to buy this year have crystalized. Here is how to succeed buying them.

Update: NES Classic now on sale by resellers on Amazon starting at $189.

We have not seen anything like this in years. This Holiday season shoppers are faced with more gifts than ever that are hard to find due to high demand und extreme low supply. At the center of the shortage fiasco is Nintendo. The Japanese video game maker is not able to satisfy demand for the Pokemon Go Plus since months and has angered many fans yesterday with the bodged launch of the Nintendo NES Classic Edition console.

Add to the misery the upcoming $99 New Nintendo 3DS Black Friday edition, which will likely cause fist fights in the Walmart Black Friday sale. Nintendo is joined by toy maker Spin Master. The company landed a surprise hit with the Hatchimals Eggs. Who knew that we are ready for a Furby again.

It is still early and there are ways to buy the aforementioned hard to find holiday gifts at regular or sales prices. I have personally engaged in hunting down the released items in online shops like Hatchimals and NES, and it is very difficult. As soon as a NES or Hatchimals shows up in stock at a retailer, they are gone in seconds. Find below the best practices and links to have a fighting chance on buying a Nintendo NES mini, Hatchimals Egg, Pokemon Go Plus or New Nintendo 3DS.

How to Buy Hatchimals

Walmart is the only store that has advertised a Hatchimals Black Friday deal. Walmart will offer the $48.88 Hatchimals deal it is also already offering now in the Walmart Black Friday 2016 sale beginning on Thanksgiving Day. As reported, I managed to buy a Hatchimals in the Walmart online store for $48.88 last week. Read how I have succeeded in scoring the $48.88 Hatchimals deal.

To get the $48.88 Hatchimals deal on Black Friday is likely going to be messy, depending how many Hatchimals Eggs Walmart is hoarding for the Walmart Black Friday sale in stores. Even if Walmart stores would have a whole transport container full of Hatchimals, they crowd would clean it out within a minute. Our recommendation is to try to find a Hatchimals in stock online before Thanksgiving.

Prospectors have driven the prices of Hatchimals up to around $150 on the Amazon Marketplace. The MSRP of Hatchimals is $59.99. Read on to Find out more ways to find Hachimals.

How to Buy Nintendo NES Classic

The $59.99 Nintendo NES Classic Edition console launched on November 11 in stores and online. The supply was extremely constraint in stores and especially online. Right now all stores are sold out of the retro 80s TV gaming console. Even NES accessories are hard to come by.

The in-stock notification on the Nintendo NES Classic Edition page on is too slow for ultra-high demand items like the NES Classic. You need to use real-time stock tracker tools. Read our NES Classic buyer's guide to find out how.

Resellers have started on the Amazon marketplace to offer the NES Classic starting at $189 plus $12 shipping. Other deals for the NES Classic on the Amazon marketplace are $250 and up.

The deals on Amazon's marketplace are more reasonable than on eBay. On eBay prices of the NES Classic are going crazy, some listing ask $13,000 for the $59.99 NES. I assume these sellers hope that Kanye West just absolutely wants a NES Classic now. The lowest offers are around $300 on These outragous prices might be the reason Amazon does not allow NES resellers yet on its marketplace.

How to Buy Pokemon Go Plus

The Pokemon Go Plus is the most frustrating to find as there is just no new inventory coming in. The $34.99 Pokemon Go accessory has been spotted in stock at for 1 minute once last week. All other online stores that carry the Pokemon Go Plus had no stock. Nintendo initially promised new stock for end of October. That did not materialize. Resellers offer the Pokemon Go Plus for $100 on Amazon's Market Place.

How to Buy $99 New Nintendo 3DS

Nintendo announced a new special edition of the New Nintendo 3DS console for Black Friday 2016 for $99.99. The hand-held console does not come with a game at this lowest price in history of the 3DS. The $99 3DS will go on sale on Thanksgiving Day at Amazon, Walmart, Target, Best Buy, GameStop and more. The $99 New Nintendo 3DS will sell out as one of the first Black Friday items on Thanksgiving Day. The 3DS is a perfect Holiday gift for kids and at $99 a bargain. So far only Walmart is listing the $99 Nintendo 3DS online. Check if has started to list the new 3DS deal.
