Deal: $225 refurbished Wii U with $25 gift card from Nintendo


Is your body ready for some Wii U?

The big Nintendo NX announcement is right around the corner, but what to do with a warehouse full of refurbished Wii Us? Nintendo's strategy appears to be pawning them off on eBay with a $75 discount and a bonus $25 eBay gift card.

Today on Nintendo's official eBay page, a discount on the Wii U White 32GB unit showed up for $225 and includes a free $25 eBay gift card. This 32GB console bundle technically isn't a full Deluxe set, because it doesn't come with the Wii U stands, but it does still include the 32GB console and two games: Super Mario 3D World and Nintendo Land.

The units Nintendo is selling are refurbished but come with a one-year warranty. You might see a minor cosmetic blemish, but it's guaranteed to be fully functional. Basically, it's in like-new condition.

Word from eBay is there are 500 units available at this price with the $25 bonus. In case you're not familiar with Wii U costs these days, the discount isn't particularly hot as GameStop has been selling $230 refurbished black Wii U Deluxe sets all summer, but by tossing in the bonus $25 gift card, we're getting the best deal of the season.
