To all of you out there who are still struggling to find a Wii, I offer the perfect solution: just drink 2,084 bottles of Coke! Sure, the sugar intake alone will rot out all your teeth and you will be paying about $3,271.97 more than you should, but how else are you going to play Super Paper Mario, right?
My Coke Rewards, a Coca-Cola promotion that lets you trade points collected from every Coke product bought for cool stuff, is now offering a Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS for 6,250 and 3,250 points, respectively. I had never heard of this program until today and, once I looked into it, was genuinely surprised by how many different things you can trade in your points for. Everything from a Pirates of the Caribbean pinball machine to a flat screen HDTV is offered on the mega company’s Web site.
Granted, by the time you drink enough soda to get a Wii, Nintendo will most likely have already released its next system, but, hey, beggars can’t be choosers. I just wish Newcastle offered a similar deal. I would have the greatest entertainment center ever by next Tuesday.
