Amazon Started to Ship SNES Classic Pre-orders

Finally. Amazon is shipping the SNES Classic. Updated.

Amazon moved the shipping dates for our SNES Classic pre-orders from October 24 up to October 19. The first Amazon customers have now received shipping confirmation emails for their SNES Classic pre-order. The first SNES Classic units, pre-ordered on August 22 are arriving on Friday.

There have been false shipping dates sent be Amazon. We will have absolute confirmation that Amazon has the SNES Classic in stock during Friday when the first customers confirm they have received the SNES Classic.

We have placed two SNES Classic orders in the first minutes after the pre-order launched. Initially, the got different delivery dates. Now both will arrive on October 19. Update: Our SNES Classic arrival dates just got moved up again by another day. Now both consoles are scheduled to arrive on October 18. Check your SNES Classic orders, they might arrive sooner than later.

The earlier delivery date and the start of the shipping of the first unit confirm that Nintendo has finally supplied Amazon with a SNES Classic shipment. Update: We can confirm that Amazon has started to ship out the SNES Classic pre-orders yesterday. It's a slow start and it appears that Amazon will need at least a week to ship out all orders.

Because we still did not receive our U.S. SNES Classic units, our current SNES Classic Giveaway is featuring a European SNES Classic we pre-ordered at Amazon UK. Once we receive the two SNES Classic units from Amazon later this month, we will give them away too.

The SNES Classic pre-order is the worst experience I have seen with Amazon ever. I'm a customer since 1996. Something must have gone very wrong with the SNES Classic pre-order behind the scenes.

The $79.99 SNES Classic can be found today at GameStop stores and Target stores. To get notified when the next online sale of the SNES Classic happens, get our inventory tracking app.
