$249 Black Friday Wii U with Smash & Splatoon available at midnight


Walmart strikes first blood

Update: Deal is now live but Walmart servers are being hammered. FYI, Target’s similar deal is available in store only.

For those unaware, Walmart will be selling the popular Black Friday Wii U Deluxe bundles with Super Smash Bros. and Splatoon for $249.99 as early as Thanksgiving. While the brick & mortar stores will open up and deals become available at 6PM on Thursday, the bundle willalready be availableat 12:01AM midnight Pacific time.

The $249 Wii U deal accidentally showed up early this morning on Target’s eBay storefront, but lots of users were having trouble adding the bundle to their cart and completing the transaction. So your best bet for grabbing a unit at the $249.99 price tag is to wait for Walmart’s deal tonight.

As with usual, Walmart’s online inventory will most likely sell out within the hour — so if you really want to pick a unit up, we highly suggest you set up a Walmart account and prefill your payment information to quickly complete the transaction once the clock strikes midnight.

For those interested, Nintendo’s big eShop Wii U and 3DS sales event is now live too. Check out the full list here.
