Antonio Villas-Boas/Business InsiderSometimes, fortune smiles on you.
It did on me on Friday — and I ended up with a Super Nintendo Entertainment System Classic Edition as a result!
There I was, going about my usual end-of-the-week routine, when a colleague mentioned that Amazon was selling the incredibly hard-to-get console on a nearby street corner through one of its Treasure Trucks.
To get one, all I’d have to do is place an order through Amazon’s mobile app.
I jumped at the chance.
I had actually already pre-ordered the SNES Classic, but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity. My pre-order isn’t set to arrive until October 3, and I wanted the SNES Classic now.
So, I fired up the Amazon app, tapped the order button, went down to the truck, which was parked at the corner of 28th and Broadway in Manhattan, and got my console.
Amazon’s Treasure Truck program has already been running in Seattle for the last year and a half, but it rolled out to several major cities in the US on Friday. Every day, Amazon picks a hot product and loads into its Treasure Trucks. After you sign up for the program — assuming it’s available in your city — you’ll get texts alerting you to the featured product of the day. If you want to buy it, you just order it from the Amazon app, and pick it up from a truck.
The product of the day on Friday was the SNES Classic, which the company offered through its Treasure Trucks in their various US locations.
