Trying to find a Nintendo Classic Mini during Black Friday is like trying to find a needle in a haystack but hopefully, that’ll change soon. Yesterday UK retailer Tesco had some of the consoles in stock, but they sold out in a matter of minutes. Retailer Argos also has stock of the device, but that is limited to a single store in Sheffield.

Meanwhile, those in the United States who are waiting to get their hands on the nostalgic device are left twiddling their thumbs, as retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, Newegg, and even Jet.com show out of stock for the mini console.

How do I find out when the NES Classic Mini is available?

With so many only retailers sold out and the console being scalped on eBay, you may be wondering the best way to track when new stock is available. Your best friend in this situation is NowInStock.net, which offers a convenient tracker and notifications for numerous sites. You’ll see that they’re all listed as out of stock since November 11th.

This website auto-updates its tracker every minute, so if you leave the tab open and have your notifications turned on, you’ll hear a ping play when the tracker finds a site that has the console in stock. You can even set it up to send you email notifications, so when you’re away from your computer at home you’ll still be alerted when stock is available again on any website you specify.
