I dropped by Toys R Us to see if they had a GameCube Wavebird I could buy (they didn’t). I did find that they had a sale on all video games: buy two get one free (of equal or lesser value). If there are at least two games you would have liked to buy, this is a really good deal. There were only two there that I wanted that didn’t already have, but the third one I wanted, Dance Dance Revolution: Hottest Party, wouldn’t be released until this Tuesday.
I asked the employee when the sale was over. He said that it was likely to be tomorrow, Sunday. He revealed that they had a shipment of Wii’s to sell Sunday so they would want to ensure the deal was available so that people could buy games once they got the console. Sounds like a good idea to me.
However, that didn’t help me as much since I already own a Wii and the third game I wanted wouldn’t be available until after the sale. I discussed the return/exchange policy with the employee. In the end, I decided to buy a third game that I would exchange for DDR once it is available. I would just have to pay the difference since DDR is more expensive than any of the available Wii games since it includes the dance pad.
In summary, if you want a great deal on games that you would have wanted to buy anyway, check out the buy 2 get 1 free deal. This is good for any platform, even portable ones. If you don’t have a Wii, check out Toys R Us on Sunday. Good luck and have fun!
