In what appears to be a trend this week, Amazon has once again made a limited amount of NES Classic Edition consoles available on Amazon Prime Now for a few select cities in the United States. This time, the list includes New York, Austin, Houston, Dallas and San Antonia, so Texas customers are in luck.
Here’s the latest tweet from Amazon regarding the availability of the NES Classic Edition:
Once you arrive at the Amazon Prime Now website, just type in your zip code and, provided you live in an area that has access to Prime Now, you will be able to search for the NES Classic Edition. But here’s a link just in case. If you live in any of the 28 or so cities that Prime Now delivers to, you might wanna bookmark it.
We covered this yesterday, but ThinkGeek is holding a lottery on its website to give its customers a chance to get a mini NES before the holidays. Add the NES Classic Edition to your wishlist and you’ll be entered into that day’s lottery. If ThinkGeek pulls you name out of a digital hat, you’ll get a code to order one.
If that fails, you can also start lining up at a Best Buy store over the weekend. Earlier this month, Best Buy sent out an email proclaiming that the NES Classic Edition would be in stock at their retail stores beginning on December 20th. You’re going to need to be there early if you want to grab one.
We’ve also included a widget for the standard Amazon listing of the NES Classic. In all likelihood, this one won’t do you much good for the holidays, but it can’t hurt to have every tool at your disposal.
