People whining about having to do their job is annoying. Hence you no longer have a job and people buy most of their reading materials from the internet. Fuck off and go work at McDonald's now.

Best Buy managed to out-Gamestop Gamestop. Good show. :applause:

I believe the new policy is that you can only price match other stores at the point-of-sale.  After that, you can only price match Best Buy itself.  You could probably buy one from target and return it to Best Buy.  Someone informed me this may not work either if the UPC numbers are different.

Yeah, looks like they won't do it. It's probably not worth the hassle over $50 anyway. I need to learn to be more patient, I bought the Wii U just for Pikmin and it looks like this deal is trying to get people like me.

Is this the Wii U version that does not come with Nintendo Land? Basically the $50 gift card buys you a new game.

 

Would Best Buy Price Match this and give a $50 gift card?

I'd say you have 100% chance of getting a price match. If for some reason you get shot down at one store try another.
If all else fails you're within the return policy and can take it back and purchase at Target.

Have you had luck, even after their policy change? Their site says they don't match gift cards anymore.

 

I'm going to try either way, but I doubt it will work. And no returns for me, I already transferred my Wii info to my Wii U.

Official policy is that they don't PM gift card deals, but I've had success in the past getting them to take the value of the gift card off of the price (very YMMV). Doesn't hurt to try. If it doesn't work, just go to Target

The price drop will be to $300 for the deluxe.

If you are planning to buy a game this would be worth it although come black friday im sure we will see the $300 Wii U deluxe with a free game or gift card. Or we could see stores do a drop to like $279

Technically, you should be able to return it and then buy it again at the matched price. I know they say they're more strict about price adjustments, but maybe they'd still do it for you if you tell them that's what you'd end up doing if they refuse to match it.

If you still have the box couldn't you buy a Wiiu from target, take the new one out of the box and put it in the box you got from BB and return it to BB?

They may check the Serial Number. Besides, why not just return the BB Wii U and then buy the Target Wii U?

You guys are crazy, I'm not committing fraud (no matter how minor it may be) over $50.

I already transferred my Wii info over to the Wii U, otherwise I'd take it back tonight.

And so it begins. I seriously have been waiting months for the Pikmin 3 deals to start rolling in thinking somebody would offer a bundle, or as I told my kids this morning while we were in Kmart - "Target will offer a $50 GC if you buy a WiiU and Pikmin 3". If the $50 GC is for just the WiiU anybody know how long I have to wait before I go back and buy Pikmin 3? I live within 9 miles of 9 Targets so I don't mind driving to a different store. 

 

Did somebody buy a WiiU at full MSRP to play Pikmin 3 10 days before the game comes out? Must be new to CAG. I'm expecting TRU, BB and maybe Kmart to have similar deals. Gamestop sucks for deals, Walmart may offer a free stylus or something. This is the first opportunity these stores have to unload WiiU stock that has been collecting dust since after Christmas, everybody should have a deal Aug 4.

Naaah, I bet it'll be $300 with a free game or gift card as a standard deal when the PS4/XB1 come out.

Forgot before - thanks to chatgirl4 for the long awaited Pikmin 3 WiiU deal post.

 

Also - is the $299 Basic OFFICIALLY deceased in the US? I checked the websites of BB, Gamestop, TRU, Target, Kmart and Walmart and it's not available new anywhere online (GS had it $279 refurb and TRU said In Store Only, not available for pick-up). If that's the case then the Deluxe price drop to $299 must be imminent, no? Makes me hesitant, but I've waited this long and really want Pikmin 3 NOW.

There's no way you could have known- more times than not patience does nothing but keep you from months of fun on a new system. That Pikmin 3 looks great though doesn't it? I pre ordered mine, but it's through Amazon so it'll take a few days after Aug 4 to come in the mail. I went ham on the Wii U games, also pre ordered NSLU, Splinter Cell Blacklist, Rayman Legends, Wonderful 101, Deus Ex, Windwaker HD, Arkham Origins, Assassin's Creed 4, Watch Dogs, DKC Tropical Freeze, Mario 3D World, Bayonetta 2, Smash Bros 4, and Mario Kart 8! I don't know how much I spent but it's a hell of a lot of $. But hey, I can't turn a good game down... whattaya gonna do right

Wii U Deluxe is the one that comes with NintendoLand, so yes, this comes with a free game along with the Digital Deluxe Program.

 

Anyone saying "it needs to drop more"

 

LOL.. it's not going to drop this year. And if it does ever drop, it's only a $50 drop. That's pretty much the same as the gift card deal.

The Wii U has been constantly dropping price in the UK. It's never had a stable price since launch - for a reason. It was overpriced. The sales are a lot worse there too so that's also a factor.

 

I guess Black Friday.

The basic Wii U is officially discontinued so as of now $350 is the only way, which will make the $50 price drop seem bigger despite the xonsole already have been previously sold for $300 but for the basic of course.

Yeah, i'mma need an exact Wii U bundle like that Deluxe Zombi U set, except without Zombi U. i don't care about that game whatsoever, well maybe if it was free like T!T!T! ;). do a pack in with either NSMBU or the brand new SM3DW for black friday, price it at $350 and include a free $50 GC and i'm down. i wouldn't mind Nintendo Land being digital either like it was in the Zombi U bundle, since i actually like this game and since i would never sell it anyway.

Oh definitely, I held out for a few weeks to see if a deal pops up. Now I can get a couple weeks in with messing around with Nintendo Land before Pikmin arrives.

Yep :D Only like 2 weeks away!

 

I really think the Wii U is a great deal with the $50 gift card. Sure, it currently has a lack of games, but rarely have I enjoyed games as much as multi-player Mario or Nintendoland. I have had so many laughs in New Super Mario Bros because of the stupid collision :P It looks like this Holiday season they'll finally get their act together
