I just drove 3 hours one-way to pick up an HDTV receiver box at the ONLY BestBuy within 1000 miles that had one!!! (I'm nuts, I know. My girlfriend has told me repeatedly!) I ordered it online last night and I picked it up today. I got there right at store opening (10 am) and I noticed there was a huge mass of people gathered at the front door. They all rushed in yelling and screaming. Anyway, long story short, I got my receiver and I asked the dude what all the hooplah was about. He said that they had 15 Nintendo Wii's and that they didn't know if they'd get more by Christmas or not. Word got out that they would put them on the shelf this morning. Ha!! They didn't even make it to the shelf!! I made a split-second decision to buy one and now I'm sitting here looking at it on the couch next to me. It hasn't been touched and I have the receipt if you'd like it for warranty purposes.

I am not looking for some huge profit like the guys with the PS3s are. All I wanted was my HDTV receiver!!!! I figured I'd post it here and see if there was any interest. If I can get back my money, plus some gas money and shipping fees, I'll be happy!

So there it is, let me know if you want to make an offer on it.

Thanks,
Brandon

I was looking for one for my kids for Xmas. I won't pay ebay prices for it though. Let me know what you want for it. Maybe cash and items in trade? Looking for anything?

$400 shipped
That's what he told me, sounds like a bit more than gas and shipping! ($249 in stores)

he did say he drove 6 hours too, so thats some gas.Imagine in a f-250. It will be worth it to someone if they sell out and can't get more. My buddy has one an as much as I hate the thing(cause of no hi-def) Its pretty dang cool and the controller actually work. Its not for hard core gamers, but its perfect for playing with lots of people and beer.

Thanks maxpower!!! Yes, $400 shipped is what I'm asking and that's what I've told everyone that's inquired about it. Take it or leave it. I don't want the thing, but I AM NOT going to take a loss on getting rid of it either. $400 will cover my gas, my materials boxing and wrapping it up, and shipping with insurance. I think that is reasonable. They are going for about that or more on ebay with outrageous shipping charges on top of that! Some as high as $50!

Sorry, but he drove the distance to get his Receiver box and happened to come home with the WII. My point is he came across like he was helping out fellow fliers, but it sounds like $150 profit to me.He was willing to buy the gas for his purchase, why tack the whole gass bill to the WII?
Good luck, someone will buy it, I just got one for $250

I'm sorry, but if you already have one, why did you feel compelled to post in this thread with your personal opinions??? I'm trying to sell an item. I have set a price and it is what it is. You obviously don't want it, so move on.

Just wait until January and there will be tons of the PS3, WII, etc, etc out there. These companies purposely make less to drive up the demand and the talk about these systems and purposely release them at Christmas time. At this time of year they know people will pay for them that's why the cost of the PS3 doubled the cost of the PS2 at it's release time. It's all a big scam so just wait until Jan 1st and there will be so many every kid can have one.

Because I was intersted and you claimed:

However you are no different from the guys with ps3s. You asked, now I'll move on.

** THIS WAS BASED ON THE ABOVE COUPLE OF EDITED POSTS.

ABSOLUTLY REDICULOUS! Blackcat end this thread and start a new one. Here the guy puts out his cash to get an item that may be in super high demand in the next month and all he wants is to make a lil cash for his trouble. And everyone here acts like he is just trying to scam someone. The whole christmas/ebay thing has been going on since tickle me elmo in the late 90's. The simple fact is some people would rather pay someone $100 to get it, rather then going from store to store , preordering, waiting for supply, or just plain camping out in front of a store. I just can't beleive the haters. I hope this thing sells out and you guys gotta hear your kids crying all christmas for one.

.Imagine in a f-250.
I don't remember him stating he drove an F250, are you a friend of his? He came off playing like he was doing everyone a favor, he wasn't out to make a profit, just shipping and a little gas and he was better than those ebay scum, but the game's the same, just a different playing field. I'm just calling it the way I see it, not hating, but not liking either, too many contradictions. He's not doing anyone any favors as he claimed to be, he's in it for the money, so he should just say that.
I agree, close the thread and take the thing over to ebay

My point is this: Base price= $249, asking price= $400 = 60% mark-up
Now read the opening statement again.

hey maybe I dont have kids but i'll be damned when I do if they start expecting a expensive game system to be under the tree.
I grew up in the 1st nintendo age early 80s, then sega etc. I didnt expect any game system as I was told they serve no purpose no educational value.

i would play them at friends houses sometimes...

Still I'll be damned if my kid starts whining what he didnt get, shoulda got..

These companies know the score it started with those damn cabbage patch kid dolls and elmo..
If folks will spend it get your money and laugh all the way to the bank at them fools!
Soon we'll have a generation of kids that will know all the cheat codes to some game but wont know how to use a microscope/telescope/chem set etc...
Try giving those type of gifts to the new bratty generation of kids nowadays..sorry Im 30 years old and they just dont appreciate what they have anymore. not all but most.

Nevermind, I've opened the damn thing and am currently enjoying it on my brand-new 50" LCD!!

I'm addicted and it's off the market.

Thanks for all the comments; albeit, most of them critical.
