Buy A Wii For The Holidays - Where To Find A Wii

Nov 28, 2007
Trying to buy a Wii for the holidays? It's going to be rough going. Nintendo did not manufacture more systems in anticipation of the holiday crunch, and the Nintendo Wii turned out to be such a popular item, that stores everywhere are running out.

If you are trying to find out where to buy a Wii, the best place is always online. Sellers from just about anywhere can offer Wii game systems at competitive prices, and you have a choice of more sellers than at your local mall. You can buy a Wii online and receive it within a day or two. These are new Nintendo Wii game systems, in the box, many times with receipts or with return policies.

Figuring out where to buy a Wii online can be confusing though. Many buyers are reluctant to purchase online because they don't want to be ripped off. Here are some quick tips to make sure you buy a Wii online safely, and aren't disappointed for the holidays:

- Use a well-known auction service like eBay. Don't shop through an unknown channel.

- Use a reliable payment service, like PayPal. PayPal is owned by eBay, and has excellent buyer protection programs if you pay using them. If you can use a credit card or bank account through PayPal, you are better protected than if you mail a check or money order. Most sellers ship faster too for online payment. If the seller does not come through, you will at least get you money back.

- Buy a Wii system from a seller with a high rating, and with several hundred sales under the belt at least. On eBay you can see seller feedback from other buyers, you can see approximately how many items they've sold (by the feedback count) and there are rankings according to how much positive feedback the seller has. PowerSellers are eBay merchants who sell thousands each month, and are also very reliable.

- Compare prices for sold systems. You can see prices for closed auctions on eBay so you know what the systems are going for. Generally, prices will be a little cheaper than you'll find in retail stores.

- Make sure the item you are bidding on has all the accessories and pieces you want. Does it have all the controllers, software, and cables? Is it "new in box"? Do you need a single system, or a bundle, with two controllers and nunchucks?

- Buy from a seller with a cash-back return policy. If your system doesn't measure up, you want to have the choice to get a refund.

- Ask questions before bidding. Get your answer before bidding so you don't win an auction you didn't want to win.

Use these special tips to make sure you buy a Nintendo Wii system you or your family is looking for this holiday season!
