While we're at it, the GameStop has another way for you to order.
If you weren't able to score a bundle just now from ThinkGeek or order a console on its own from Target, Amazon, Best Buy, or Walmart, you have two more chances to score a SNES Classic Edition. If you have the GameStop app on your phone, you need to boot that up immediately and see if you can't purchase a bundle there. Several users have had luck doing so.
Additionally, there are pre-orders live in-store at GameStop, so if you have a store nearby, you need to head there immediately. If you place a pre-order in-store, you'll need to put down $25 right away, but then your console will be secured! These will go fast, so act fast!prevnext
