Circuit City currently has the Wii in stock online.. It's a package deal that makes you buy three games though. The good thing is there are three games worth buying: Super Mario Galaxy, Brawl, and Carnival Games. I have all three of those and the shipping is free.

Wii

You need to use a site like wiialerts.com and sign up for text-messaging alerts to have any hope of getting a Wii online. By the time someone buys one and posts on a message board, it's already too late.

I am registered at Wiialerts but I usually get the emails too late. I have registered my cell phone twice but I never get any messages. Well...... actually I got a call yesterday from California and I hit "ignore". then I checked it out later, and sure enough, it was from wiialerts So now I have the phone number saved as "wii alert". I'm being patient, one will come my way

Today, Amazon has started taking pre-orders for Wii Fit at $89.99 with free shipping and no sales tax. I decided that was a deal I couldn't pass up.

I'm always a big fan of no tax and free shipping and that's why most of my shopping is done online now.. the added bonus is not wasting money on gas and that can be a pretty significant chunk of change these days.
I checked it out on buy.com to see if I could take advantage of the $10 off with google checkout, but they aren't offering it for sale yet. They do have a warning about it being very popular and they might run out of it quickly.. I think it will be VERY popular and will get Wii interest up even more than it already is. Which means I seriously need to find a few of them so I can craigslist them for some nice profit..

Especially since it was on its way out the door a couple years ago because it didn't keep up with the graphics power of the other two..

Currently available @ ToysRUs for $294.98. You have to buy Brawl, but that's a game most people will buy anyhow.
