Nintendo Wii on Amazon

Amazon will have the Nintendo Wii available for purchase the morning of Saturday 11/19 for $250. You can only purchase one and inventory will disappear very quickly. In fact, request for availability notices were 100 more than the number of consoles they’ll have.

Even though the first batch will disappear quickly, expect more inventory to arrive soon. To make sure you don’t miss out on these opportunities, we’ve embedded an Amazon Nintendo Wii product page and store in this post and at Bookmark either of these links and check often to see if available (I’m guessing you better get used to constantly hitting the refresh button). If it appears quickly click the buy button and it will take you through Amazon’s purchase process.
