If you used your reward zone account they can look up your receipt on the computer so you don't need to technically have it

 

Excellent.  I looked it up at my reward zone and I see I used my account card.  Now I don't have to stop by home after work to get the receipt.  Thanks for the info!

30 miles here and back to the closest one.

 

The Afterglow controller is showing up for around $8.99 though.

 

May finally pick that baby up.

The Best Buy I went to didn't have the afterglow controller either. I would have picked one up if they had. I got the afterglows for my PS3 when they were on sale, and they make decent back-up controllers. Maybe I'll find one at a different Best Buy.

Big thanks Lobstah, I've been wanting a Move setup for a while and thanks to you I picked up an essentials set, another wand, 2 nav controllers, and a charging base for $45 after using a $5 rz cert(receipt showed "total  savings: $138.00").

 

Now to see how Deadly Premonition plays with Move...

Wow, I didn't know Deadly Premonition works with Move. I have to play that damn game. Thanks.

 

My local store I work at has the Wii U controller so even though I don't have a Wii U yet I went ahead and bought one when I do get one. Ended up getting it for under $7 with employee discount and free $5 reward zone certificate I had. Gonna go to the store near my wifes work later to find the $2.99 black cradle and the PS Move bundle thats on clearance for $16

Same here. I have some Wii U games already. Having this controller ready for pickup makes me think more about buying a wii-u sooner rather than later.

 

Found one for $10.99 about 20 miles away, but it's also where my fiancee works so she can go get it for me. Yay! Thanks OP.

The one I ordered is about 20 miles away also. I'll have to find some other things to do in the area to make the drive worth it.

Got 2 Pros. This is nice timing because I just started Wind Waker HD and I don't like the gamepad controls. This should be better to use.

These things arent even being discontinued or anything, Bestbuy just doesnt want to support the White anymore. If you notice, White Wii Remotes arent sold on bestbuy.com  either. This is only a bestbuy thing so these still will go for face value elsewhere.

Pick em up if you can cuz the moment smash hits or Mario Kart people will be begging for em

I'm so glad I checked here on my lunch break. I bought one of the last two on the shelf. It was only a buck and change with my reward cert. The box had a ton of dust on it lol. It still said something like $21.99 on the shelf, but rang up $10.99.

Thanks OP, picked up two at my local Best Buy. I had to go out of town to pick up my first two at the 20.99 price, so I'm glad to see that somehow our store got more. A full set of Pro controllers for about 65+ tax is pretty nice, will be even better when Smash Bros and other multiplayer games come out.

First party Nintendo peripheral for 75% off is a bad sign for Wii U. I still picked one up for my lil brother's so we can play smash bros when that comes out.

Damn MN CAGs, when I checked my area earlier there were $11 Pros all over the place...now only two locations have any in stock.

 

I grabbed my 4 white Pro controllers during the last wave of clearance, and thanks to a combination of certs/gift cards/other discounts I paid $45 total, or about $11.25 each, so NBD that they're sold out all around me.  I'd get on it ASAP if you want one though.

Just like when Apple's famous Retina MacBook Pro hit clearance for 40% off , right?

It's not so much an issue for the Wii U, as it is an issue for the original 8GB white Wii U. Nintendo has essentially stopped selling that model to the U.S., and it could be a while before we see another white Wii U. It seems that most Wii U owners prefer to get a controller that matches the color of their console.

None in my area, unfortunately. I guess at least I was able to pick up one for $25 from Amazon a couple months ago.

I recall Walmart clearing these out too. 

False. Only SOME Walmarts.

 

My Walmart doesn't clear anything out except for the $0.02 strategy guides we had a couple of months ago.

 

We still have Odama for GameCube at $39.96 (it used to be $49.96 for the longest time).

Got one earlier for instore pickup. I checked the site again and its still showing some available so i may pick up another when i go to pick up my order. Would have just ordered 2 for instore pickup but it limited me to 1 when ordering and to think i almost ordered this a couple weeks back when they marked it down to $23.

I ended up going to Best Buy a bit ago just to check even though it showed OOS on the site when I tried to order. I found one hiding in the middle of a row full of black controllers. If you don't see one when you stop by, may be worth peeking behind the other color. My store was reorganizing for the incoming Xbone and PS4 next month.

Don't even have a Wii-U, but given the likelihood Ill get one eventually. Hard not to jump at this. Don't know what's up here. Are they just discontinuing the white color controller because of the basic model being discontinued?

 

Cant believe they also have Move controllers for $5.99, Nav controllers for $3.99, and Charging cradle for $3.99. To think I originally paid $99 for the Move.  :dunce:

Considering it was never $100 for just the Move controller...you got ripped off.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

I dont really mind the stick postions, but i do wish the one on the right was below.

Said it was OOS online after adding it to my cart.  Took a chance, went to the store, and got the last one.  It was marked 22.99 on the shelf but rang up at 10.99, which was the price on the website.
