$249 Wii U from Best Buy until Saturday night


Just in time for Christmas

Missed out on Black Friday or even last week’s $50 drop on the Wii U from Toys”R”Us? No problemo, the $50 discount has been extended on the Wii U Mario Kart 8 bundle through Best Buy, which has it as a part of its weekly sale (but strangely didn’t really make too much of a fuss on its website about it).

This is the best deal post-Cyber Monday for the Wii U from a mainline retailer. The highly in-demand Wii U Super Smash Bros. + Splatoon bundle did hit this same $249.99 price for a short time on Thanksgiving Thursday until it quickly sold out at that price. We don’t see the bundle available online anymore anywhere legitimate, but you may still be able to find it for $279.99 at select GameStop (in fact, some sellers on Amazon Marketplace even have it above the holiday list price).

Note for the physical package and disc lovers, Mario Kart 8 comes pre-installed digitally, so if you want to add to your shelf collection – this wouldn’t really do the trick (the aforementioned Smash + Splatoon bundle is also the same situation).

While this is an older bundle, Mario Kart 8 is the quintessential title for the Wii U, so you really can’t go wrong with picking this up if you must have it for Christmas. Shipping time frame is Dec 16 to 23, and you’ll also earn $5 in eBay bucks (good for an accessory in the future?).
