Today at the Sam's Club in Fayetteville I snagged a Wii U Zelda Bundle for only $98.71! Happy Hunting!

Nintendo is screwed..... Closes Sam's Club store to me is Idaho Falls. They quit carrying them last year. The 2 Walmart's close to me have only a few games a piece and no systems. I just figured they were selling better since the Nintendo Direct. But according to the guy I talked to they have started to send the Wii U stuff back.

WOW, would definitely buy one at $98

Probably wont ever play it, but it would be cool to preserve it in its original package and then see how much it would go for 40 years from now.

hey man block the serial number!

I would buy one if I was a sams club member.

#5 Posted by good_sk8er7 (4322 posts) -

I already have one. Bought for $300 with Mario U/Luigi U. Was worth it. :)

They offer a one day pass at most of them. I called the Salt Lake City Sam's Club and they have some for $130.00 with either Zelda or a Mario / Luigi combo (Never knew it existed.) Debating on getting my Sister to get me one.

I looked online and the regular price is still listed

I would imagine you should call and see if your location has them and at what price. If you are shopping for a system online I would think the sales would not be valid, if you can buy online from Sam's Club at all.

I have never worked retail electronics, but I assume similar principles apply to any situation where stock builds up and needs to go.

Nintendo already got their money for these units. The longer they sit around, the higher the chance the retailer will take a hit to get rid of them.

Means nothing other than people aren't buying them from those particular retailers.

I'm good, I already bought my Wii U last year at Target. Oh and by the way, Walmart is a terrible store.

#11 Posted by Opus_Rea-333 (987 posts) -

Lol for 150 seems like a steal to play the new smash, mario kart 8 game and hopefully a new Pokemon game.

#12 Posted by charizard1605 (58260 posts) -

Meanwhile, the Walmart near me has an entire section dedicated to Nintendo, and they tell me it sells faster than Xbox One!

Anecdotes, man, how do they work?

#13 Edited by lamprey263 (24221 posts) -

Is this just Sams Club or Walmart too? I know ASDA which is like Walmart's UK outlet already liquidated their inventory last year, and I remember people mistook the firesale as a spike in demand.

#14 Posted by MFDOOM1983 (8453 posts) -

I wonder what the manufacturing dates are on these units.

#15 Posted by KingsofQueens (2217 posts) -

Wow, that's sweet deal. I'd definitely snag a WiiU at that price.

@charizard1605: I was about to post something similar, haha.

#17 Posted by Randolph (10542 posts) -

Better use that voucher for Wind Waker now, they expire in early March. (that may be why that bundle was priced to move)

#18 Posted by StrongDeadlift (5176 posts) -

If that ends up being true, I would run out and buy one literally tomorrow. Not even for the Wii U value, but for the value of it being a Wii. I never had a Wii last gen and there were games I wanted to play. This bundle is roughly the price of an original Wii.

#19 Posted by m_machine024 (15018 posts) -

Hmm I'd get one right away at that price! :)

#20 Posted by PrincessGomez92 (3616 posts) -

Yes, Nintendo is screwed. Lol timbers.

You really shed too many tears for Nintendo.

#23 Posted by DrRockso87 (2529 posts) -

Nintendo, full-fledged Pokemon game for the Wii-U. Try it and see if it works. What do you have to lose at this point? No more rumble app bull. An actual effort would be nice.

#24 Edited by Couth_ (10180 posts) -

Wal mart employee checking in. I tell people wii u sells like hotcakes for the lulz. We haven't sold one in weeks

THIS NOW seriously

#26 Posted by silversix_ (14795 posts) -

For $100 even i would grab one just to play mario kart while drunk with friends

#27 Posted by Shewgenja (9633 posts) -

Snap! I might shop around tomorrow for one then.

#28 Posted by Krelian-co (11203 posts) -

dafuq time to buy one

#29 Posted by CrashNBurn281 (424 posts) -

Hell, when you find a good deal, jump on it. The Wii U is a good console. I have been having a blast on it. Its third party is severely lacking, but the first party titles are outstanding.

#30 Posted by Heil68 (45220 posts) -

That's a good price. Much better than the $349 we paid with a shitty pack in game.

#31 Edited by Joedgabe (5119 posts) -

which Wii U though ? the 32gb one ?

#32 Posted by Kingpin0114 (2599 posts) -

I need to go to Sams club tomorrow.

#33 Posted by happyduds77 (1488 posts) -

Is Wii U compatible with Wii games? I wanna buy one.

On the contrary, I couldn't have less shits to give about Wii U if I tried.

#35 Posted by timbers_WSU (5753 posts) -

This pic is on several websites already. Blocking his serial number is pointless now. Just read that not every Sam's is doing the deal.

#37 Posted by kitty (114803 posts) -

None of this ever happens near here, so no point in me getting interested. :p

Yes I will finally get to experience the Zelda games.

It was one of the selling points to me. Enjoy. You have to buy a wiimote though. Otherwise I believe it is ready from the get go. The older games weren't programmed for the new pad.

#41 Posted by Grey_Eyed_Elf (3904 posts) -

That's a bargain.

In the UK I will wait till it drops to £150 then I will grab one till since the only games I want are Mario Kart and Zelda.

#42 Posted by Pray_to_me (2877 posts) -

Not gonna lie I still wouldn't get it for the space it would waste plus the scarlet letter effect of owning one.

#43 Posted by ninjapirate2000 (3058 posts) -

Is sam's club the same as a costco? I don't think there are any sam's club's in southern cali.

#44 Posted by DarthBilf (1356 posts) -

I would buy a Wii U in a heartbeat at that price.

#45 Posted by _Matt_ (8924 posts) -

Dayum, awesome price.

I think £140 is my sweet spot for the 32GB Wii U to reach before I invest currently.

Agreed. 300 + 2 games is a very good deal.

I think that 400 or 500 without any games is too expensive for a system, even if it is more powerful.

#47 Edited by Opus_Rea-333 (987 posts) -

Microsoft with all their money should help Nintendo and Sony do this for all their remaining consoles.

People love cheap stuff.

But unlike PS4, WiiU actually has great games coming soon and great backward compability.

#48 Posted by speedfog (3229 posts) -

That is a steal man. Maybe a new model will come out. If lucky

#49 Posted by LegatoSkyheart (25600 posts) -

Good time to get a WiiU.

Though I wish Walmart would organize their Game shelves better.

#50 Edited by santoron (7775 posts) -

Looks like we've found the magic price point for WiiU.

Make it happen Nintendo!
