Are you one of those parents rushing around to find a Nintendo Wii for your kid this holiday season? I don’t blame you. I played the Wii this past summer at my friend’s house, and it almost made me buy one the next day, but I refrained from doing so. They are pretty cool systems, because they appeal to such a wide range of people. I am guessing that is why they are so hard to find this holiday season! I’ve been trying to find one, but I’ve been unsuccessful so far.
Don’t Use These Methods:
- Ebay: You’ll just get ripped off, and you don’t want to take the chance of getting scammed on the holidays.
- Going from store to store: You’ll waste so much time trying to get lucky by finding one left at a store, and you’ll get so frustrated that it’ll put you out of the “‘ ’tis the season ” mood.
Try These Methods:
- The Wii Tracker: Make the Wii Tracker your homepage. It updates itself, by the minute, when an online retailer posts a limited amount of Wii’s for sale. I’ve been checking this site, and they only seem to last about 10 minutes, so check it religiously.
- Craigslist: Check your local craigslist. Some people will be selling them for a ridiculous amount of money, but I’ve seen a few ads in my town for people selling them for $300. That’s only $50 more, and you can go to pick it up instead of relying on someone to ship it to you.
If that fails, you can always just wrap up a big empty box with a coupon for “One free Nintendo Wii”. Yeah, your kid will be slightly disapointed, but at least he or she will know that they can get it as soon as you can find it. Keep in mind, I was unsuccessful in finding a Wii, but I have narrowed it down to Craigslist or the Wii Tracker as my best chances for finding one.
