These are not the SNES Mini deals you are looking for [UPDATE]
The Mid Winter Melt Down Sale starts 9:00am 26 July.
UPDATE 26/7/2017: So it turns out the SNES Mini didn't go on sale at 9:00am this morning. Users logged on early today to find a complete lack of SNES Minis and a competition sign up to win 1 of 10 SNES Mini consoles. Catch's PR has since clarified that the SNES Mini will appear in one of the website's hourly deal drops, which drop on the hour, every hour so long as you're a "Catch Club" member. Not ideal, but there's still a chance you could pick one up if you hover over Catch's website like a vulture over a wounded wildebeest.

Last year, demand for Nintendo's NES Mini Classic was fervent enough to crash EB Games' website. The hype around this year's SNES Classic Mini was, strangely, a little more timid, though strong enough to sell out just about every console pre-order on the face of the planet.
If you didn't learn from last year's mistakes and pre-order a SNES Mini immediately, there's hope for you yet.
The daily deals website Catch.com.au is running a Mid Winter sale this Wednesday (26 July) beginning 9:00am and will be selling SNES Mini consoles in celebration.
It's a little rich calling it a sale when they're charging $10 more than the original retail price but thems the breaks, I guess.
There's also a limited number of consoles and they're set to sell fast, so be ready at the clicker if you're keen to snag a SNES Mini.
Let's hope Catch knows exactly what kind of demand they're dealing with here, other wise it really will be a melt down sale.
