Just bought an SNES classic console at Walmart this evening (Tuesday). It appears most stores in my area received either 6 or 12 units (zip code 37604). The first store I went to had not put the consoles in the display case yet but the second store I went to had them available. So it may be a good idea to call before going. Good luck!

I told my buddy to go get one at the store I got mine from and apparently the manager said he wouldn't sell the second box of six until 8am.

Thanks, snagged one. Initially went to one store (American Canyon) marked as having 12. They had closed the Electronics department for the night so I headed to another store with 10 (Martinez). Got one there and saw them sell at least 3 more before they closed so they're still going quickly.

Warning to the lazy. Brickseek
Showed 12 At my store and the woman behind the electronics counter said they have 0 and got none in last night. Not sure if a memo to hold/hide stock is going out.

At my local 6 showing. Got there and two other guys were waiting already at opening. Employee came back and said they were supposed to be on the truck last night but none showed.

So why were 6 added to inventory? Don't they check the items on the truck first before adding them? Something's fishy and it's not just the underwear of the Walmart customers.

I bought 3 over the weekend but I looked at ebay and sales have tanked. I really don't think anything can be made after fees. Hell, you may even lose some and have the possibility of getting scammed or chargeback. I put on cl but not even 1 bite. Maybe they'll get returned or offered to friends at cost.

Same here. I bought 3 and no hits yet. Someone offered me $50 on cl. Might return it next week if I don't sell it. Nintendo finally made more than enough...
Would be funny if Nintendo put out a memo to these retailers that these can't be return. Scalpers are getting burned on this console lol. Suck it scalpers.

I always had mixed results with Brickseek & Walmart although mainly when it's a really low count (i. 2 or less). Generally when it's a higher number, I find it to be fairly close. Where I've had much better luck is when I search the SKU in the Walmart app.

With that said, I'd say there's a good chance they had them and she just didn't want to go get them from the stock room. At the store I was at, they had to go back there to get them.

I just wanted one. No luck at my 2 local Walmarts. I was in both around 7 AM this morning after 12 units showed in brickseek at both stores.

One store when I later checked BS again from work around 10 AM was then down to 6 and is now down to 0. The other store was down from 12 to 0.

Looks to me like there definitely is a timeframe from when deliveries happen in the back, brickseek updates, and the electronics reps are unaware of the stock. I believe I have read in the past to not show brickseek to employees, though in this case it may have been the only way I could have gotten one.

Next shipment I suppose. Good info for those of you who need it though. If brickseek shows in stock, you may need to somehow fight or insist with the electronics employees that they do a manual stock check or call the back room if stock is shown.

Brickseek says my local store has 34. Employees said they sold out immediately after their last shipment on Thursday.

Called around my locals when I saw this. Got a bite at one of the three ( of course, the one farthest away ) drove faster than I should, and grabbed the last one.
