    Ebay will cost you extra -- if you take the time and call the local stores (Best Buy, Target, Walmart, Gamestop) you should be able to find one. Usually Gamestop will get them in monday-friday around 1PM local time....just keep calling if they wont allow you to put a deposit down on one. It only took me about a week of calling and waiting until I found one and the lady at Gamestop said she would hold it for me for an hour until I was able to get there.

    Sunday morning, I was waiting outside of Toy's R Us waiting for it to open because they confirmed a shipment the night before, then I found out there were some over at Target, I ran over there and snagged one without having to wait in line at all. Joshieca's right, just call around, Target wouldn't tell me if they had any over the phone but Toy's R US would. I wouldn't recommend Gamestop because the guys that work at those stores are pretty rude.

    Go to the shops, ask for one, if they don't have any, ask if you can reserve one, that's what I did.

    My local Walmart had 2 left.

    I called them, and asked for Wiis. They said they had 2 left so I zipped over and picked one up.

    Anyway, keep looking around and calling around, eventually you'll get lucky.

    I went to my GAME and asked when they were Starting Pre-Orders.
    They told me the day they were going to start them. I went down that day with my £20 Deposit and Pre-Ordered one. Since it was the day they started I was pritty much garenteed one.
    On the day (8th Dec) I went down at 6am. Waited till 7:30 and the Shopping Centre opened. I went in and was 7th in Queue :)

    The workers at Gamestop and EBgames are usually rude so I barely go there. Target usually gets shippings(trucks delivering their products not only Wii) on Sunday night.

    Edit: Hope you find it can't wait to get mine.
