Bargain Hunter: Wii Bundle Madness

Bargain Hunter: Wii Bundle Madness

wii lifestyle 091021There are some crazy Wii bundles happening right now. Here’s a quick wrap.

Note that all Wii consoles come with Wii Sports, one Wiimote and one Nunchuk. I’ve also mentioned when each deal expires, if specified by the retailer.

Obviously GAME’s web only price is the lowest, but there are some good bundles out there (Good Guys and Kmart, for example) if you’re interested in those extra controllers and games.

Let me know if you’ve spotted any better deals than these.

Console plus Mario Kart and 2nd Wiimote – $399.95

Console plus Wii Fit and Shaun White Snowboarding – $604.95

  • At GAME they also have:

    Wii + 5 games (including Mario Kart) for $447

    Wii + 6 games (including Mario Kart) for $464

    Both have exended warranties in them as well.

  • So Nintendo’s forcing retailers to bundle and lose their margin instead of dropping it themselves like the rest of the world. Bravo.

    Good for consumers either way though haha.

  • Actually that’s not true Daniel, Nintendo are providing more margin on the console so retailers can make their own bundles or sell them cheaper (eg Game’s $339). I work at a game retailer, and the consoles are cheaper at cost price to let us make bundles. Bundles always seem to sell better, even moreso than just a cheap console.

  • These Wii bundles are “crazy” only in the sense that they are still $150 overpriced and only come in one colour.

  • EBGames also has starting from today:

    Wii + Mario Kart + Hasbro Family Games for $398

    The previous bundle mentioned here has ended.

  • Actually JB’s deal is different.

    $399 – Wii console, Game Party, Mario Kart and EA Sports Active.

  • At Target til April 25, Wii console, remote, nunchuk, Mario Kart, Wii wheel, Wii Sports Resort & 12 – in – 1 accessory kit all for $179. What a bargain.
