Check out Walmart.com or Amazon.com
As far as deals go, you want get it cheaper than the $250 but you may be able to find the Wii including another controller or games. Good Luck, there still tough to find and continue to sell like hot cakes!

The major stores, e.g. Target, Best Buy, Game Stop, Costco. You need to ask a rep who has been around a while when they hit the floor, then be there when they are released.

The local Target has a whole stock, but puts out 5/week at store opening Sunday morning (as they advertise them in the Sunday circular). Game Stop puts them out right off the UPS truck - which delivers on a fairly routine schedule. At BJ's, they keep them behind the customer service desk and you'll need to ask. If you make a few phone calls and find a helpful salesperson you should be okay. Good luck.

Got it yesterday at Amazon, no tax.. the free shipping thing is kind of "tricky".. it's suppose to be a Xmas sale, but if you buy it with the special "Xmas free delivery" you got it AFTER Xmas!!!!

So I had to pay for regular shipping to get it on the 23 rd....

Duct Tape: Thanks for the link, it worked perfect.. I add it to my RSS feed on I-google and kept me informed when it was up in stock....

Thanks everybody else for your help too.... I guess that now I have to start looking for shooting games!!!!

You did about as good as you can if you spent $250 on the console. The accessories will add up fast. I got one for the kids (and us...) this year. I saw the prices about the same everywhere, so I went to Best Buy since its local and has a decent return policy.

Now... this is weird and it sounds fishy... I bougth the console and 2 or 3 accesories and I told you the story about "the FREE Xmas delivery offer that does not get your gift untill after Xmas..." well because of that I had to expedite my shipping and pay more....

Today I received and email from amazon saying that they are going to brake the order down "WITH NO EXTRA COST FOR ME" so I will get my console tomorrow!!!!!?!?!?!?

Why the heck did I paid for expedite shipping??? why the heck they especifically told me, "no you will not get it on time" and they send it to me 3 days later?????!!!

Don't get me wrong, I do not complain about getting the console earlier, or them breaking up the order "WITH NO EXTRA COST FOR ME", what it sound fishy is the way that they handle this "Free shipping"
The ammount of money for shipping is not going to make me poorer either, it just felt that it was wrong....
