The demand for the ever-popular Snes Classic and Nes Classic Nintendo Entertainment Systems far outweighs supply and are thus out of stock often. Customers can pre-order them on Amazon so they don’t miss out.
When you pre-order an item on Amazon that is not-yet-released, you will not be charged immediately but rather a few days before the item is released (when it ships or a few days before shipping, depending on the item).
Amazon guarantees the lowest price — should prices change between the time you place your order and the release date — as long as the item has been labeled " Pre-order Price Guarantee."
How to pre-order on Amazon;
Log in to your Amazon account.
Search for the item you wish to pre-order in the top search bar.
If it's yet-to-be-released, you'll find it says "Pre-order" in the "Add to Cart" button.
Click on the yellow "Proceed to checkout" button to continue.
Complete the checkout process as per normal.
Click "Place your order."
To check your order status, click "Returns & Orders" in the top toolbar.
Scroll down until you find your pre-ordered item. Click on the yellow "Track package" button to double-check the release date and track your package.
You may receive email updates if the release date changes and will have the option to manage or cancel your order.
