The gift card is a wash considering taxes if you can buy the console from a non tax website.

Here in CA, all major online retailers collect tax. That's becoming the case for more and more states.

Also, buying from those other sites doesn't get you reward zone points, nor does it contribute toward silver membership. All things to consider.

Those are some excellent points, I live in TN and I am starting to run out of places to buy from without paying our nearly 10% tax. With that said, Ebay may still be the place to purchase these or at least wait until a few more sales or bundles pop up. There don't appear to be any big games coming soon and I'm thinking that anyone that really wanted one has probably already bought it.

I wouldn't buy it if it was $50-100 off with a $50 GC. Why do I need another dust collector? All the good games don't come out until the end of this year(hopefully) or until next year.

Yuck.

I'll wait till black friday and see if I can get it at a good price. With the release of the PS4 being at about that time I would think that they should have some good sales.

If you're planning on buying one it is a okay bonus. However, I don't see this moving too many systems.

I'll eventually buy one but it will be at least a few years.

I just picked up a deluxe system with Nintendo land, Super Mario U, and Zombi U from a guy on craigslist for $320. I absolutely love the system and the games. Not sure if I'll keep it, as I will be selling some of my other systems to help recoup the costs.

I thought it was a great deal compared to other used ones on craigslist as I would have been paying $470 to buy all of that new.

At worst it'll be like a rental considering I could sell it for the same or more for what I paid.

Yeah, I don't think Amazon is going to accept my Best Buy Reward Zone certificates or gift cards :/

Youd be better to grab the ZombiU bundle for Newegg with the 10% code.

This. Even if they don't lower the price, I'm waiting for a good bundle where they add in a bunch of stuff. Ill prpbably buy it the black Friday after next. I'm a huge nintendo fan but I can wait.

Well, I ordered one from Target last week.
They had the Super Mario bundle for 368.00 with a $25 gift card and 5% off with the Red Card. So I went with that instead of the ZombiU bundle that Newegg had. (Nobody in the family wants the Zombie game, but they all like Mario)

Target doesn't offer the $25 gift card anymore, but if you have a Red Card, and were planning to get Super Mario anyway, that might be a better way to go than this Best Buy deal.
What was nice is that the the NintendoLand game is the physical copy, not the download token. I prefer the physical copy...that was another minus for the Zombie bundle for me.

Target will be offering a $50 gift card 3/17 - 3/23. Best buy will match per their policy.

That is not correct. Best Buy's official policy is that they don't match gift card offers. YMMV on getting BBY to match.

Thanks.

Does Best Buy price match "free gift with purchase" offers?

No. Best Buy does not price match "free gift with purchase" orders. This includes free gift card with purchase offers.

I actually have been enjoying the Wii U more than I thought I would have.
