Amazon trying to temper the Amiibo craze
I woke up this morning to find the below email from Amazon in my inbox. Basically, it looks like Amazon gets the whole Amiibo craze, and they are trying to ensure that people do not get screwed out of their shot at the Amazon exclusive Chibi-Robo Amiibo that drops later today. I appreciate Amazon trying to stop people from cornering the market and elevating the price on the resale market, but I suspect that this little guy will still probably sell it very quickly. So if you want him, be prepared to hit this link at 2 p.m. PST today for your chance to own this exclusive.
Dear Daniel Keener,
Thank you for your interest in ordering the new amiibo figures from Amazon.com! Quantities of the new character will be limited, so we’d like to ensure that as many customers as possible have availability information. The individual character from the latest wave will be available for purchase Thursday, November 19, at this time.
Chibi-Robo amiibo – Amazon Exclusive: 2:00 p.m. PT
Purchases are limited to 2 per customer, and 1-Click Ordering will be enabled for these items. Please make sure you’ve updated your credit card and shipping information to help you move quickly through the checkout process.
We have ample quantities of the amiibo, but do expect to sell out. Please act quickly Thursday afternoon for your best chance at buying the character you want. Demand is expected to be very high, and there’s no guarantee that it will remain in stock for long.
Thank you for shopping with us.
