JB Hi-Fi has today sent out an email to those that preordered the SNES Classic Mini online. Due to the fact that they’ve had an overwhelming response to SNES Classic Mini and its accessories, they’ll be handling preorders a little bit different.
Due to the massive amount of consoles that they need to ship out, they’ll be starting to send them out on September 19th which means that you’ll need to have your delivery address updated as well as funds in your account by this date. JB has also advised that you’ll need to sign for delivery due to the fact that they won’t be able to replace if it gets lost.
Usually, JB won’t take funds until the release date (or day before) of a product, but they’ll be doing it almost two weeks early to ensure that as many arrive on release date as possible.
