Still Looking For a Wii? Costco's Got a Stash.

Costco


The only catch is that Costco are selling them as a bundle. At a price tag of $344.99 you get the basic Wii, extra nunchuck, extra wiimote, and a copy of Big Brain Academy.

In light of recent eBay gouging of the little white bugger and downright exploitation of the consumer due to Nintendo’s inability to meet the holiday demand, this seems like a good deal. Perhaps it’s not the most ideal price range to be in, considering the competition is only a few bills away. Still, are least you have the comfort of knowing that you aren’t getting bent over when making this particular purchase.

Who knows how long the supply will last? As with many Wii spottings, once word gets out, they quickly become myth again. I just hope these poor little Wiis don’t end on eBay with a $400+ ‘Buy It Now’ slapped on their mugs.

Also, whatever happened to Nintendo’s threat of don’t bundle the Wii or else? Idle threats, indeed.

“Who knows how long the supply will last?”

That picture shows about 32 Wii’s. They are long gone.

Well it’s not a surprise, in my local stores it’s usually only the bundle deals that are in stock as they cost $300+ and have crappy games.

I wonder where this costco photo was taken? I contacted the local costco and they were already sold out. There is an ad for snowshoe resort in the bottom left corner. Unless there is another snowshoe resort i don’t know about the only other one is in WV. I couldn’t find any Costco stores in WV according to their site?

The ski resort could be advertising outside of WV and it appear in another store?

Costco has/had that many? You should have scooped up about 10 of those then sold’em on eBay. Wouldn’t be a bad investment for a possible $1000 profit.

Going to check my area costco’s
