How early should I arrive, if the store opens at 11:00 am? I'm willing to do anything.
That is SO GREAT!!! welcome to wiichat!
you will find great information here! :yesnod:
visit my surreal thread to share what you love about your wii when you get to use it!!!
If your willing to do anything and want to get a Wii real bad I would go at midnight. There will be other people looking for Wii's as well with the release of Brawl, so thats probably your best bet.
I'd suggest leaving no later than 4:00 AM. It might be a lot of waiting, but you will probably be guaranteed a Wii. The best of luck to you my friend.
Do you have the money for it now? If so, call your local places and ask if they have any Wii's in stock.
I have a strong feeling you won't be able to buy a Wii on the day Brawl is out.
Depends on exactly where you live. Big city, I'd say midnight, medium sized town, probably 4:00AM. Small rural town, 6 or 7AM. Goodluck...
I've already called every store that I know sells Wii's and they're all sold out, only Best Buy said that they would have some in on Sunday...
this is how i got a NEW wii and RETAIL price during Xmas rush. :yesnod::yesnod:
look for a store advertising wiis in their circulars... this can take MUCH circular hunting...
be THE FIRST customer for the day posted in the circular and run straight to get one... (shouldn't require campling out)...
if they are "out" show them the circular that showed they would have one and ask for a rain check
if they don't give rain-checks then INSIST that they do! they advertised that they WOULD have them in their circular... AFTERALL you were the first customer in the store!
you should be able to get a rain check due to a false forcast in the circular
i didn't have to take much time while they decided to agree, but i would've pushed very hard and spent much time standing there insisting everytime a customer was in ear-shot. :yesnod:
Unlucky! I can't believe people are still on the search for Wii's!
Everytime I go into work on a saturday we have between 3 and 4 just kicking around in the stockroom!
Seriously, anyone who doesn't have a Wii by now, who actually really wants one, is obviously not trying hard enough.
good luck but call to make sure there will be some and i think it opens at 10
I wouldn't follow the advice for the Christmas rush, most stores ad's clearly state NO RAINCHECKS. Also, most people who really want one will camp out. Which means you won't be the first person in the store, so unless they got 12 and only 3 people are camping out, you most likely aren't going to get one.
4 A.M. should get you a top 10 spot. It's a shame some people still can't find Wii's, as well as an incredible tribute to the popularity of the Wii.
*ahem* if you're the 1st one there and there is no Wiis as advertised... you are entitled to a rain check..
visit customer service: don't give up... don't give in them :wink:
I got a Wii at christmas by getting to a store at 5 for a 8:00 opening... But I think you should get to the store by 3:00am at least. I was competing with less-then-happy parents, you will most likely be hanging with the big dogs. ^_^
you have to camp out if you realy want one best buy will give number for each unit so sometimes you don't have to wait untill the store open they will give the number early .
i was lucky and got mine on the day it came out good luck getting your wii if you need to say you have a disease and say you really really want a wii that should work(dont try that i was kidding)
USE CRAIGSLIST!!! I've helped 3 of my friends find one here. Wii's are still hard to get around where I live (metro Atlanta) but there's lots of people selling them off Craigslist. I got mine for $300, slightly used, with Wii Play, sports, an extra set of controllers, 2 GC controllers, and Mario Strikers. Not a bad deal... except I had to drive kinda far to get it and pay up in cash. Much better than waiting around in line forever.
I've tried Craig's List, and although they have them, I'm hesitant to buy one that has been used, I'd much rather have one brand new with a warranty. Anyways, I'll be there at 7:30 and I just hope I get lucky.
When i got my wii i arrived at 6:20AM
Well, I got one ! It came with an awesome package that included: Wii, extra nunchuck, extra wiimote, wiimote/nunchuck armour, SSBB, 3 year warranty, AND a Nintendo/Wii/Mario blanket.
