    Wal-Mart selling wii gift cards? what a joke!

    For some reason this struck me as a little “cheap“, and I’m not referring to the price.

    Wal-Mart.com is currently selling a Gift Card with that value of $249.24 (the price of a Nintendo Wii) - in hopes that parents will buy the gift card to give to their children for the Holidays.



    “Merry Christmas little Joey, technically we bought you a Nintendo Wii… but you just have to find one for yourself - it’s like 2 gifts in one! A Wii and a scavenger hunt!”

    Personally, I think that any kid would be let down to get this… I mean they would get what it stood for. Correct me if I’m wrong, but does any kid really want to open up a gift card on Christmas morning?

    Alright, let’s say a kid gets the Wii gift card for $250, pretty much the choice is wait for the Wii … or get a new bike and a whole buggy load full of toys? If I was a kid, the choice would be a no brainier.

    What do you guys think of this?

    EDIT: Of course Wal-Mart isn’t just selling this gift card for children, I’m sure there are plenty of adults out there that would love to get this as a gift. I guess just call me old fashioned… but if I’m dropping $250 on a gift - I want to be getting the physical item, not just a place holder.
    this article really gave me a good laugh, honestly, if i got this for christmas, ide be insulted!

    haha, i hope you liked the article, feel free to express your thoughts

    Personally I think it's a great idea.

    If people can't find a Wii for Christmas, they could at least have this so they could get one soon.

    I think it's a cool idea since heaps of parents won't be able to find a Wii before Christmas with the way they're still selling...the kid will at least know they've got one coming to them, all paid for.

    i think its fair. if you're mad at your parents for not being able to find an item in huge demand, then you are the moron, not them.

    Nintendo's answer to the shortages of Wii's for christmas.

    Buying this pretty much insures you a Wii, if you can even find one
    If you want to add me in Brawl, PM me that you're going to (and include your brawl name and friend code). Also, PM me if you delete me, so I can delete your name, too. I need space, ya know.

    For anyone who added me in Brawl and deleted me because it still said "Awaiting Registration", please re-add me. It just means we both haven't been online at the same time.
