SNES Classic in Stock at Walmart for a Few Seconds Today

The first SNES Classic sale at Walmart was a farce. Updated.

Based on yesterday's SNES Classic sale at Walmart, the SNES Classic will sell out in seconds again today. Walmart announced on Tuesday that the SNES Classic will be in stock online at for three consecutive flash sales that started yesterday. Today Walmart will put the SNES Classic on sale again starting 11 am PST online at

Update: SNES Classic was again sold out in seconds today. Some people had success keeping the SNES Classic in the saved for later list from yesterday. This did not work for all. Tomorrow is again a chance but will be as slim as today.

The demand for the SNES Classic has died down considerably since launch. This is why it was extremely surprising that the SNES Classic sold out literally in seconds yesterday. On top of that Walmart did not offer SNES Classic consoles for immediate shipping. The retailer offered a pre-order with a shipping date of Nov. 30.

We have seen the pre-order button live for a few seconds before it was gone again. There might have been also other shipping dates. The suspicion is that shopping bots scooped up the available SNES Classic inventory. Another explanation is that Walmart only has very limited inventory. The puzzling aspect is that the Walmart offers to pre-order SNES Classic and apparently does not have available stock.

The Tracker app did send out a notification about the availability, but a sale that only lasts seconds is impossible to shop. Since there is no other online availability you can try your luck again today at 11 am PST at Please leave a comment below in case you succeed.

The Tracker app will send out an alert on smartphones and a tweet at @TheTrackerApp as soon as the SNES Classic will be in stock at major online retailers including Amazon, GameStop, Target and others.

As this is a scheduled Super NES Classic sale, you should actually be already on at briefly before 11 am PST to have a chance to buy the SNES Classic. Walmart is a prime target for shopping bots. You need to have everything prepared to check out quickly.

Make sure you are logged in and all your account data and credit card data are up to date. Consider using the Walmart shopping app. The Walmart shopping app might be the faster and more responsive option to get the SNES Classic purchase completed.

The SNES Classic comes bundled with an HDMI cable, a USB charging cable, two Super NES Classic Controllers, and 21 games, pre-installed and ready-to-play. The 16-bit retro console, first introduced in the 90s is also compatible with the Classic Controller and Classic Controller Pro accessories.
