Perhaps akin to the B2G1 unadvertised special on WiiU games last week, I just came from Target and saw the WiiU deluxe console is $20 off from 1/20 to 1/26, dropping it to $329.99. The basic console looked to still be $299.99.

It may not be clear in the bottom left of the pic, but the DPCI looks to be 207-29-0002.

EDIT: I thought that the placard meant it came from Target HQ, but it seems that may not be the case. Tossing YMMV in the title.

I was at Target today and did not see this so might be YMMV.

Why would they discount the Deluxe and not the Basic since the Basic is the slower mover of the 2?

I didnt see it at my store today so has to be YMMV.

I see that and really doesn't make sense. Temp price cuts though are always YMMV and can be just because that area is very slow moving on a product.

Shouldn't be a YMMV, it looks like a sign direct from HQ and not a store made sign. You can always call your local Target store and ask them to punch in some DPCI numbers that you have since you wondered what the price was in-store.

I know when I worked at target (03-06) Temp price cuts were store to store and we wouldn't price match a temp price cut from another store.

holy shiat, tomorrow would be 65 days from November 18th if your Premiere Silver and bought it at BB like I did. Too bad that the website isn't reflecting this, and the BB would prolly call the store and stock is uncertain..too much leg work for 12 hours of tomorrow. Oh well..

$313.49 with red card for a wii u deluxe is a pretty good deal, nice find op.


Until you add on the NY 8.625% tax, and your 5% goes *poof*.

I'm surprised this is Deluxe and not Basic, each of the 2 Targets I go to have had 8 Basics and only 2 Deluxe in the display case for the past 2 weeks. Though I also think Nintendo should stop making the Basic, clear out inventory at $249 and drop the Deluxe to $299. MH3U will give them a few sales, but Pikmin 3 and Bayonetta 2 don't even have dates yet. I think the Wii U will survive and prosper once the main titles get released, but what happens when stores stop taking deliveries, does Nintedno just stop making the things for 2 years until Mario Universe and SSBUnlimited comes out?

Target prints all their ad bubble signs in store

Yeah, I did.

I was at two targets yesterday and neither had them at a temp price cut. When I go out tomorrow ill look around and see if any other targets in the area have it at a price cut.

That only helps if they all had the same serial #.

"unadvertised special" is YMMV. Write YMMV.
