Woke up today to a Walmart ad about tens of thousands of Wii consoles available for US$249. Take note that those are only basic console sets (console and a controller)… should it come with an extra controllers, games and other bundled items… the price becomes US$329. While I’m not totally a Wii fanboy, I’d say this deal comes perfectly during the holidays. I’m sure parents will take note of this and line up for one. I do hope PlayStation 3, the Xbox and some other stuff follows suit.
I’ve always looked for deals around this time of the year. Walking around BestBuy, Target & Game Stop, I always see product bundles top shelf. The key is to check the papers, cut the coupons, surf the internet… generally be keen at following through where the discounts are. While it IS a job in itself, you’d be thankful your wallet at least remains a little “fatter” after the holidays.
“We’re thrilled to be able to provide more customers the opportunity to experience and enjoy the Nintendo Wii this Christmas,” said Kelly Thompson, Walmart.com chief merchant. “Based on the success we’ve seen with Wii Fit and Nintendo Wii, customers recognize that Walmart.com is the online destination for the strongest values and best selection in video games this season.”
As usual, these offers are only available while supplies last, and given how popular the Wii and Walmart both are, we’d expect these supplies to go pretty quickly. If you’re looking to get a Wii for your loved ones this holiday season, give it a try.
