Best buy will be getting tons of shipments in over the next couple of weeks. Also, check out ebay, they have not been inflated too much last time I checked.

I would always call the electronic store in the morning to see when their next shipment is due in

Wal-Mart supposedly has it in stock online if you get the bundle pack
or you can pre-order it at Target.

also if you know someone at best buy, bribe them to call you as soon as the shipment of wii arrives if you want to buy it in-store

They don't last long. Be prapared to wake up early on sundays and go to Best Buy or Circut city when they are in the circular.

Good luck

It all depends on the area you live. Before the holiday season it is almost impossible to find a Wii in the stores (while they are still well filled in many european countries – except the UK) but you can get them online whether on Amazon and their system of third party retailers or Ebay. Wherever you look, the prices will continue to rise. So the current situation is that you can get them but you have to pay more as the “official” price.

In search of wii
My search started in mid-october when my 10 year old son asked for a wii for Christmas. I knew from the start that I had to find him one because of the connection with my name. You see, my name is William Isaac Ishman with my initials being WII and my sons name being William Isaac Ishman the 2nd, WII 2. As a matter of fact my wife refers to us as wii 1 and wii 2. Every weekend in October and November my time was spent searching all stores in the city I live in, including walmart,toys r us, best buy,circuit city,comp USA and many others with no results. I spent hours standing in lines and even witnessed a fight in best buy, when two elderly men reached for the last wii. When December arrived I was about to tell my son that their would probably be no wii for Christmas this year, but first I wanted to give the online stores a try. I check all of the big box stores, always with the same results“out of stock”. I ended up checking a couple of the wii tracker sites, and their it was at amazon.com “in stock”. Amazon was selling the wii for $250.00 that morning. I immediately went to their site and purchased one.It was worth every penny just to see the look on my sons (wii 2) face Christmas morning. The wii trackers had really done the job for me.
