I bought mine in Wal-mart on March 1st.
My girl gave me a best buy gift card for the amount of the wii console for christmass, they never had any. The only day they had it got there 2 minutes late, I saw the little kid taking it..... *sigh*..... anyways, they told me that on the 6 of march they were having some shipped in, that was in around february 26... I couldn't wait, the next two days I was going early morning to wal-mart or k-mart to see nothing... On the first I couldn't go in the morning so I was thinking that if they had it they were going to be gone by then, but I went around 3 pm to check.. sure enough, they had 2 wii's left, they told me they just got them in about an hour ago, they only had two left.. got mine in a heart beat... I was going to pay, my check card was not going through.. "WHAT???" I shouted.... called bank, rant with them, I had enough to buy 3 wii's in my account.... they though my card was stolen... I spent about 30 minutes not letting that wii go, finally bank re-activate my card and got it. and with the gift card, I bought 2 more controlers 3 more nunchuks, rayman, wii play and zonic.. hehehe thats my story
