Buy This Now On Amazon

Amazon Prime Now offers the $59.99 Nintendo NES Classic on a daily basis. Updated.

Nintendo announced to discontinue the NES Classic Edition. This week are the last chances to buy a Nintendo NES Classic for the regular $59.99 price. Best Buy is hosting a ticketed NES Classic sale at their stores Monday morning. Shoppers came out in droves and lines formed through the night.

Amazon Prime Now continues to offer the NES Classic for select regions on a daily basis. At 2am ET, April 27, the NES Classic is available on Amazon Prime Now in Dallas, TX.

These offers of the NES Classic on Amazon Prime Now become imposssible to get. I was able to add it to the cart, but in the cart the NES was already removed again. It has been much easier to buy a NES on Amazon's local delivery service. Now, iStockNow's notifications are not good enough as scalpers use their own bots to check stock faster.

The NES Classic stock is extremely constraint and quickly sells out each time Amazon begins to take orders.

The reseller prices exploded on the news of the end of NES Classic production by over $200 to $300 and more on amazon.com. Lower priced offers might be a scam. Read our report on the Nintendo Switch and NES Classic Amazon scam for details.

We expect that Amazon is offering more NES Classic consoles today. Read on below to find out how to get notified when the NES Classic is in stock at your Zip code on Amazon Prime Now.

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. NES hunters have to refresh the search for the NES Classic for their ZIP code on a regular basis to spot the NES in stock. Amazon Prime Now is available to Prime members only.

To help spot the NES Classic in stock on Amazon Prime Now, shoppers can use iStockNow. The service is alerting stock in stores and also for Amazon Prime Now. To get audio alerts in your browser use this page on iStockNow. The feature requires a free account.
