Christmas Wii Availability - How To Find One This Christmas

Nov 29, 2007
One of the biggest concerns shoppers have this season is Christmas Wii availability. This hot new gaming system has really taken the country by storm, and many parents are flocking to the stores to purchase their kids this gaming system for Christmas. Most are leaving the stores empty handed because the demand for this unit this Christmas outweighs the supply.

There is good news though about this unit. You can actually purchase one this Christmas, but you may end up paying a little more than the in store asking price of $249. One of the best sources for finding this system online for a decent price is Ebay. I have seen brand new game systems sold for $290 and upwards to around $400. Another strategy is to purchase a this unit in good condition, as you can get a pretty good price on this.

If you compare the higher prices to the other video game systems on the market such as the Xbox 360 or the PS3 which are over $400 each, paying that much for this unit is not a bad deal. Check out Ebay for a great listing of auctions, but as always be careful not to get scammed. When demand is short scammers tend to really be on the prowl. Here is a list of 3 things to be aware of when shopping on Ebay for this system.

1. Buy only from sellers with some buyer feedback. You can easily check on a buyer's feedback by the star next to the sellers name. If they have no feedback, or little feedback be very cautious.

2. Pay for the item with Paypal. If the transaction turns out to be a fraud they are really good about working with you to get your money back. I have been scammed before, but thanks to Paypal I got my money back easily. Don't pay with money order or Western Union, or anything offsite.

3. Ask as many questions as possible. Make sure you feel comfortable, and most of the time a fraudster will not respond to e-mails. Make sure you are dealing with a live person.

This system can also be found in smaller towns at large retail stores sometimes. Just make sure you call before driving too far to see if they have any in stock. Typically around this time of year the unit will be coming in stock every week to two weeks, so make sure to call your store often to see if they have any in stock, and ask the manager when they think it will be in stock. They usually will tell you that because they want your business.

Also look at Craigs List or other online classified websites to see if someone locally is selling a new or used system. Just deal cautiously, and don't get yourself in any dangerous situations.

Keep looking hard, and you will find a Wii unit, but if you don't it is not the end of the world as the stocks will come back, and make sure you always remember the real importance of the Christmas season.
