Question: I will be using the 3x point bonus for my Wii U and games at Best Buy tomorrow morning, but it says that the bonus does not work for purchases paid for with RZ Certificates or Gift Cards...

http://m.bestbuy.com...rz-6510173.html

I will only be using about $200 worth of certificates and gift cards for my transaction, leaving a balance of well over $300 left. Will I not get 3x points on the remaining $300+ I actually pay for if I use anything at all to bring down the price? That seems rather lame, if so.

Thanks!


Yes, you'll get triple points on the non-certificate/gift card portion of the order. I have used that coupon already with some rz certs and it has posted correctly to my rz account.

I plan on being one of those guys complaining when i return home empty handed around 1AM.
I will then be in a greater rage when i return home around 11AM from the other stores with no Wii U in hand. LOL

The two Walmarts and one K-Mart in my area are getting in very limited supplies of the Wii u. Out of the 3, the most was a Walmart with 12 for preorder and 8 available for sale.

There was an obscene amount of regular Wiis at all three. Wouldn't doubt that the big N is shipping a ton of regular Wiis out to move stock.

Should I preorder the Pro Controller or just snag one tomorrow?


I would just snag one tomorrow, or you could probably even buy one today if you had the time. I went by my Gamestop and they had plenty out on the wall already, in black or white.

Is there any way to change the store pickup person for a preorder? I'm having problems with my leg and I'm supposed to stay off it this weekend so I was going to have someone else pickup my Wii U for me, but I can't find a way to change the person even though I've added them as an authorized pickup person on my account.


If this is Best Buy try calling CS first.

I have a feeling in a week or two these will be easy to get.


Not if walmart extended return policy applies to Wii U's :)

After hearing about the Pro Controller shortage (seeing as my newegg order doesn't look good) I made a quick audible just now and ran to gamestop to pre-order a black and white controller. Saved!

If they go according to policy, they're supposed to hold lawaway items until December 14th, so you should be fine as long as the employees at that store know what they're doing.

I didn't really look into this once I found out the Wii U was basically a 360 with a big tablet controller but now I am thinking I kind of want one, so Wal Mart let you pre-order it? What about Target? There is a 24 hour Target in my town and a few 24 hour Wal Marts so I might troll around looking for one.


Walmart let you "pre-order" by using lawaway, but that ended Nov. 1st and Target had cards in the video games section that let you reserve a system, most of which are likely gone by now.

I bought the $409 Deluxe NSMBU bundle from Target online and paid $33.45 for the 1 day shipping with a delivery estimate of the 18th. That date slipped to the 19, which is understandable because UPS doesn't deliver on Sunday, but now my delivery estimate says the 26th. I have a feeling I'll be on the phone trying to get a hold of someone to refund my shipping charges soon :(

I can get a basic guaranteed if I hang out at Walmart till midnight but there is a SLIGHT chance to get a premium if someone doesn't show up (my local store has a paper list of interested people on a first come first serve basis). I wish I checked into that earlier.

Are any of you getting the basi model? The deluxe just seems lie a MUCH better value :(

Basic is a rip off compared to the deluxe

Pretty much the same boat. I have a preorder card for the Basic, but I'm hoping to get a Deluxe. I won't mind too much either way, though.

I had made the mistake of paying off my layaway a few days ago but the staff there were nice enough to set my system aside. I stopped by the layaway desk today and sure enough, they remembered me. I've got 2 deluxe systems waiting for me!

Well Fuck it. I'm outside target. Only five of us so far, and I'm really regretting not bringing a blanket. At least I'm bundled like an Eskimo.


Bored? Too much money than you know what to do with? Why not check out my Amazon Storefront? If you see anything you want, send me a PM! Make an offer, either monetary or trade! Over 2000 items, and more added daily!

Just FYI. Every console launch I sign up for gameflys current trial. Now it's 15.95 for first 2 months. I paid and already canceled. For two months ill be trying and playing a lot of wii u games. I'm only buying Mario U at this point. This plan worked great for wii back in the day. And now gamefly has a center really close to me so should be even better!


gamefly has become awful with new games you might have problems getting alot of wii u games. takes me like two months to get new release

Why is everyone saying the Wii U Pro Controller is going to be rare? Gamestop.com and Bestbuy.com is showing up for Preorder. I want to place an order online but if its going to be backordered, I want to have a second plan.

So results from that Wal-Mart trick on SlickDeals are mixed, and I really think there's like a 50/50 shot that this is going to work.

Since I already cancelled my KMart order, if this doesn't go through I guess I'm just gonna take a deep breath and move on with my life for now. My own stupidity doing me in again.

I got an order in and called the store to see if they'd set mine aside and he said he would. Here's hoping. Headed out shortly to see if they'll honor it.
