Order Sanrio Amiibo cards online for Animal Crossing: New Horizons

To prevent the contraction of COVID-19 and reduce crowds, Target is only accepting online orders for the pack. Moreover, the store is also not delivering orders to customers’ homes. Players will have to go to stores near them and pick up their pack of Animal Crossing: New Horizons Sanrio Amiibo cards.

Each Target store will only stock 70 packs of cards. Therefore, with 2 as the limit, only around 35 players will be able to get the cards from each store. The online sales will start on Friday, March 26 at 8 AM CT, so players can log in as soon as possible and order their set of cards.

For those living outside of the US, these cards were also available for pre-order on Amazon and Best Buy. However, at the time of writing, they were sold out. Fans can keep checking these websites for a chance at buying these rare packs of cards. Moreover, they might also be available on the Nintendo UK website on March 26.
