The Strangest Sale Ever

5 posts in this topic

Or perhaps stupidest.

Wandering around Wal-Mart last night, (much to DX's dismay, I'm sure), I stumbled upon classic Wii controllers packaged with a silicone sleeve for $7.00. This, although a really great deal (regularly $24.98) is not the absolutely mind-boggling one.

Right next to these were similar packages--silicone sleeve--but instead of the controller, the top part of the box held a card with 2,000 Wii points on it. These, too, were $7.00.

Now, 2,000 Wii points has a cash equivalent of $20.00. Wii points are essentially cash, except that they cannot be refunded. Wal-Mart was selling $20.00 in a box, with an additional silicone skin, for $7.00.

I'm not sure how this works out for Wal-Mart, but it definitely worked out for me. I bought 10 of them (no limit, either!). Hello every TurboGrafix16 game I ever wanted.

I'm sure this is YMMV, and no one should rush out to Wal-Mart with high hopes...but I'll be damned if it's not the dumbest and greatest sale I've ever come across.

Judging by the numbers, it was a cool sale *has no clue about the Wii, it's points system ot it's games*


I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.
