I ordered on 12/11 and it is out for delivery today, so 9 days. I'm on the east coast.

Got my Wii Remote today. Looks like new minus a few scratches you wouldn't see unless you really looked for it.

It looks great next to the other colours I own.

Oh man, I had no idea the nunchuck was blue as well in that set. That hella tempting, but I've already got six Wii Remotes.

Solid deal op, thanks! I ordered two hours ago and I got a second email now letting me know it's about to ship. I hope I get the one with the new sync button. I love that I'll have a blue remote and nunchuk. 

 

I'll be using this with Dolphin to play Skyward Sword. About time! Grandma is currently using my Wii for Wii Bowling lol.

Yeah I didn't get the new sync button but this is still a solid deal.

Ordered a set of Blacks, thanks op!

Couple this with a Black Wii U Pro Controller from Best Buy next week and I'll have a full Salt N Pepa set!

Anyone know if a Wii Remote Plus is good enough for a second player to play multiplayer on most games? Not sure if I need a nunchuck, but have one from a Flingsmash to use....

Depends on the game.  NSMBU can use a non Motion+ controller for its multiplayer, for example.

Like the Wii, nunchuck requirement differs from game to game. Check the back of each game's box, or just ask here, we can help.

For instance, New Super Mario Bros. U/New Super Luigi U and Super Mario 3D World both can be played with just the Wii Remote. (Though you can use a nunchuck with SM3DW is you choose to.)

the only negative of this deal is the sync button being inside the battery compartment haha

Thanks for the OP on this one. Got a Wii U at Christmas, so I needed a couple sets for multiplayer and Mario Kart/VC since I sold my old Wii a couple years ago and still miss that game.

thanks OP. Had a nunchuck go bad and needed another remote anyways. At these prices I can order 3 sets for what a new set costs.

Does the blue controller also have a glossy surface? :/ I hate fingerprint residue.

Thanks, OP.  My 4th wiimote just got corroded battery damage so this came at a perfect time.  Ordered a blue one.

All of the Wii remotes have a glossy surface.

The surface is glossy but the back of them are matte... Odd choice to me.

Got my two black sets in today -- they look almost flawless. Thanks OP!

 

Sidenote, these weren't supposed to come with AA batteries were they?

Received my blue set a while back. Very pleased on the condition. I'll keep in mind to check the refurbished stuff at Nintendo store when I'm looking for other stuff that they may carry. Also (kinda off topic but I figure people looking at this thread would be interested) I found a gold Zelda wiimote at a pawn shop (in great condition).... for $15! So check your local pawn shops. Yeah some of the stuff is crap, but when you find a deal you'll be glad. Also scored a Mario Kart Wii CIB in good condition for $10.

I ordered a blue and black set and loved the condition they came in so I ordered another set. Great find!

Yea my wife and I ordered a black set and a blue set the other night. Can't wait for them to be delivered. Such a great deal! That matching nunchucks seals the deal!

Mine had a lot of scratches and the stick on the nunchuck is a lot looser than my new black one. Maybe I am just picky... But it works fine. You need 2 wii remote motion plus's for the dance mode in Wii fit U so this deal is great for that.

My old white wii remote (original without +) stopped working.

I remembered this deal and am still surprised it is still up.

 

I ordered a blue and black wiimote.

I had a similar experience but mine did eventually show up and they are in excellent condition. I ordered a blue and black set.
