Register your copy for a free Wii U game, too!
If you own a Wii U and aren't playing Mario Kart 8 right now, well, you have very different priorities than the rest of us. Perhaps this deal will be tempting enough for you to change your ways: Walmart and Amazon are both selling the game for $48.80 right now.
Considering you also get one free Wii U game by registering Mario Kart 8 on Club Nintendo -- Pikmin 3, The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD, New Super Mario Bros. U, or Wii Party U here in North America -- that's a price worth jumping on. The game is ridiculously good fun.
Watch out for that Luigi, though.

Disclosure-bot: Just in case the editor neglected to mention it, we have zero control when deals start and end. Deals can sometimes be gone within minutes (please don't shoot the messenger). Trying deal links even hours after this article's time stamp may lead to self-punching, so maybe bookmark our video game deals if you're on the hunt. Also, it goes without saying, but some shopping links do directly support the author. If you've spotted any inaccuracy please let us know asap.
