Update 11/6: As price drops across the board on the Wii U Deluxe Bundles, you can now find it even cheaper at $265.00 via Buy.com from eBay. (Unknown how many quantities they have at this price but looks to be limited).
As the holiday season approaches you may be looking at a new gaming console. While the Xbox ONE and PS4 are the hottest items, they Wii U is becoming a great deal. The 16GB basic console released at $299.99 and still is at almost the same price at all retailers, but this week at Best Buy that same $299.99 gets you an upgraded 32GB Deluxe Wii U console AND two bonus games: New Super Mario Bros U and New Super Luigi U.
This is a significantly better deal considering you’re getting the Wii U bundle with more storage and more games. If you can’t wait for this year’s Black Friday (or Cyber Monday) deals on the Wii U bundle, this is currently the next best price you should be able to snag in the immediate future. (Back in September Nintendo dropped the price on the Wii U Deluxe to $300, though this didn’t specifically include the gaming bundles listed above. It’ll be interesting to see how much further prices on Wii U drop as the other next-gen consoles arrive on store shelves this holiday season).
On other deal alerts… for the price of a footlong, today Best Buy has an 8GB Flash Drive for only $5. The SanDisk 8GB is only USB 2.0 and not the latest 3.0… but then again the latest transfer speed tech will cost about triple this price tag. The deal is only around at Best Buy for 24 hours and ends at midnight Pacific time.
