NEW YORK (MainStreet) – If we needed any further proof that you don’t need to camp out on Black Friday to get the best deals on electronics, today’s Wii sale from Wal-Mart (Stock Quote: WMT) just about seals the deal.
Starting tonight at 9 p.m., you can go to any Wal-Mart store and get a Nintendo Wii (in white, black or red) for $199. While that’s far from the best price we’ve seen on the console – Best Buy had it for $169.99 on Black Friday – Wal-Mart is also throwing in a $75 gift card to sweeten the deal. Though we’ve seen several retailers offering bonus gift cards (Toys R Us offered a $50 card with the iPod Touch on Black Friday), this the most valuable gift card we’ve seen, and it also makes it the best deal you can get on the Wii.
The console comes with a Wii Sports and one controller, plus the critically-acclaimed Super Mario Bros. Wii, which retails separately for $40 at Wal-Mart. And once you’re done playing those games you can use your gift card to buy a couple more, or another controller.
The deal is good in stores only and supplies are limited, so you might want to get there early.
