I need your help

My daughter wants a Nintendo Wii game console for Christmas but I cannot find any of them in stores. I can get them online for $500-$700 for the same thing that costs $249 in a store. If anyone here finds a brand new unopened Wii in a retail store in the $249 price range would you please purchase it and I will reimburse you, pay for shipping from you to me and send you two lbs of your choice of Wolfe Rub or $25 for your troubles. This will make Cathryn really happy and make me the #1 Dad if I can get this for her for Christmas! Thanks.

If you need to contact me via e-mail - wolferub at gmail dot com

Larry my family got ours right after Easter last year. We had a hard time finding it at first. After asking around a few store we learned that most places will release their new shipments of the wii on Sunday morning and the trick was to get there an hour or two before the store opened and be one of the first in line for the wii. My dad and brother went to a local circuit city a few hours before it opened and since they were on of the first there they got a pass guaranteing them a wii when the store opened. Try and ask around and see if Sunday is the day the stores release their wii and if it is try geting there a few hours befor the store open.

Hope this helps,

Chris

If any of you use Firefox, there is a cool add on called Check For Change. What it allows you to do is monitor online stores like Best Buy, you set it up to monitor their stock level and as soon as it changes, it'll let you know.

I used it last year to score a Wii at Best Buy online (there would be 0 available and I'd set Check for Change to monitor it) as soon as there was stock the program would play a tune and I'd know there was stock.

The only thing is that you need to be sitting by the computer when stock changes. If you're by the computer a lot it's a handy tool.
