With Wii U-only offerings like Wii Fit U and Wii Sports Club, as well as first-party titles like Pikmin 3 and Super Mario 3D getting impressive reviews, you may be thinking about getting a Wii U. Granted, in the last few weeks the Xbox One and the PS4 have stolen most of the thunder, but after sampling both of those system, I still say that for casual and family gaming, the Wii U is the console to have.
Here’s a deal that’s pretty sweet, in case you’ve been on the fence, but it will require jumping through hoops and being pretty quick.
The first thing to do is to get a Twitter account and an American Express card synced up, and then tweeti “#AmexBestBuy.
Then, head over to Best Buy, where this week they have a deal where you can get a $25 gift card with a special bundle version of the Wii U:
Doing the math, by using your American Express card, this nets you a Wii U Deluxe, which some of us suckers paid $349 for a year ago, for $274.99 (with the Amex credit) and then $249.99 (with the Best Buy Gift Card). Factor in the street value of the games and you’re getting the console for about $200.
Probably the best deal you’ll get for a while on the Wii U.
