How to find a NES Classic on Amazon Prime Now
Amazon Prime Now has been offering the NES Classic on almost a constant basis in 2017. Supply is each time very constraint. The local delivery service of Amazon has offered the NES in select cities on a random basis. The supply is extremely constraint and very sporadic. It is suspicious that only Amazon has the NES in stock and only sells them through Amazon Prime Now. It looks like Amazon set aside some NES inventory to use it to promote its local delivery service.
Amazon only allows one NES Classic order per person. There is strict limit on how many NES an account can order for a set period of time, at least 24 hours.
Ordering a NES via Amazon Prime Now is though great, but its a hassle to spot one in stock and ready for order. It arrives in 2 hours for free in the cities where Amazon Prime Now is available.
