Those who will be unable to catch the above-mentioned deals will have to wait after the holidays. Big retailers such as Target and Walmart carried very limited units of the console. Their?stocks also have not been very regular.

Nonetheless, those who are willing to take a chance can use sites such as NowInStock or BrickSeek for easier monitoring. In fact, many are on the lookout for new NES Classic Edition in Target as they are known for surprise overnight deliveries.

For those who prefer to be more sure, online alternative is also available. However, sites such as eBay offer the console for as much as $200 – three times more than Target?s $60 retail price. There?s also the $50 fee for overnight shipping.
