All Wii U bundles $249.99? Target B&M YMMV

Sawzall the Wii U, but not the Zelda inspired Gamepad controller, seems a bit sacrilegious. :-(


Are you kidding? I'm too fucking cheap to cut this thing up! I was just joking around. Besides I'm sure there's at least one game my kids can play. I've been waiting on the $250 price for a year now. Been predicting it would hit this price though it wasn't an official price cut that did it.

One of the Targets across town had a couple Mario bundles left but when I called the dude claimed he scanned it at $299.99. I have same doubts that he actually scanned it though but I don't really have the energy to run across town on the off chance that they still have them left when I get there, and it'll ring up at $249.99. I'll check this thread later this weekend and see what's up.

I disregarded the Wii U until the price drop, and now realize I how misinformed I was. Especially if you can snag it for $250, it's awesome.

I have gotten 50 hours of use with my Wii U this month.  It's such a great little system. 20 hours on Mario 3D World. 10 hours on Wind Waker. The rest of time is browsing the net and Netflix in bed. Man. I'm going to be sad if they cut the gamepad out of their next console. At $249, it's damn well worth it.

Is the store inventory system typically accurate for Target?

 

At that price, the Skylanders bundle with the extras, like the figures, flipped on ebay could make the console very, very cheap.

So how certain are people that the 20% off coupon will be  able to apply to a Wii U? I've got like an hour until Target closes and I might run to the close Target and pick up Wonderful 101 and a controller or something.

Does best buy price match any longer post purchase for silver/my elite plus members? I just bought one Tuesday.

How do I access the inventory checker for the Wind Waker bundle?

 

Nevermind...absolutely none in my area http://m.target.com/fiats/t-14757369

This didn't work in Minneapolis, MN. The Nintendoland Deluxe model was marked down to $249.99, but the Mario U bundle still rang up at $299.99.

I did some other shopping and got the 20% off coupon. It isn't active until 12/1, but will it work on a Wii U console then? It says it excludes "video games" and PS4/XB1 consoles. I take that to mean that games themselves and those specific consoles are excluded.

If anybody is looking for this in CenLA and planning to try the Alexandria target don't bother. I went earlier today and they were completely sold out.

 

This is a killer deal for Wii U though! Definitely picking one up soon.

The coupon doesn't say it excludes the Wii U, so it should be fine.  You can buy a &75 gift card and get the coupon, I did that tonight with no problem.

Well, crap. Too late for that now. That would have been sweet.

Is it too late?  Isn't Target going by central time for prices?

Top that off with the 20% coupon the other cags are discussing and that is most definitely worth it. I bought my Wii U Deluxe day one and after the price drop I shrugged it off because of all the fun ive had with mine. Picked up the Wind Waker bunduru when it debuted. Now I feel the cringe in the back of my eyeballs swell up. :oops:

Had them scan my mario bundle at guest services to attempt a return/rebuy which they said they would allow, but rang up $299, so luckily I didn't return it yet.  Hope the 20% coupon works.

Hmm imagine if they do this sale next week and you get it at 250 with the 20% off coupon and the 5% off redcard. that's a roughly $188 dollar wii U.

 

I think this idea has potential. All i really need is for some store either walmart or best buy, TRU to run a $250 wii u deal from 12/1 to 12/7. Then just PM+ coupon and redcard.

Well I went ahead and ordered a gift card to be sent to myself at another email address. We'll see if this works, or else I've just committed $75 to Target for nothing.

IIRC...the shelf tag stated that the $249.99 price was in effect 11/28-11/30, so you may not want to bet on them still being at this price when the coupon goes into affect.

 

For those of you in Southern California, the Montclair Target broke open a new case of the Zelda editions from back stock so I could buy one. So as of about 6pm they had a handful of them still there, ask for one if you don't see them out on the floor, which is what I had to do. They were sold out of all other Wii Us.

 

Also, a rep in the electronics department in the Pomona store told me they had the Mario and Luigi editions still in stock, but no Zeldas.

 

Good Luck!

If you're looking for specifics, you'll be disappointed. All we know is one of the daily deals on Dec. 2 will be a "Wii U Bundle for $249.99." Who's the seller? Is it new or refurbished? Exactly which bundle is it? We probably won't know for sure until it goes live on Monday.

I can confirm this is 249.99. I bought the last one at my Target. Hit my pricepoint finally. I'll post a picture in a few minutes. I"m going to do a youtube video of me cutting it up with my sawzall.

finally, a fucking unboxing video worth watching.

I checked 3 Targets in the Houston area yesterday (on my quest to snag a Zelda 3ds). The Mario wii u bundle rang up at $299 at all 3 (at one store they had the bundle out, so I personally walked it over to a scanner to confirm the price myself). They did have the Nintendo land bundle marked down to $250, though. No Zelda wii u bundles in stock to check. I don't think this price applies to the Mario bundle, as I have not seen one successful post yet for it. I am hoping to use my target 20% off coupon to snag one tomorrow for $240.

I checked the local Target since I was there to get the Zelda 3DS (and succeeded, check out that nutty thread if interested) - they only had the Mario bundle, three of them, and yeah, rings up $299. No ad to show them or anything either, of course. Fresh out of the Skylanders bundle too, but no surprise there.

Thanks for the link, I'll keep an eye out for this. If it does exist though where on ebays site will it be able to be found?
