Refurbished Wii U’s For Less

Although it seems as though retailers in North America are sticking with the recommended retail price of $299 (32GB version) for a Wii U, there are a few ways for you to obtain a cheaper system—especially if it’s price that’s been holding you back.

Along with the usual suspects, like GameStop/EB Games, Microplay, etc., Nintendo of America has gone ahead and begun offering systems below the recommended retail price… at $250, you can purchase a refurbished Wii U directly from Nintendo.

There may be “minor cosmetic blemishes” on these systems, but that’s what you’d expect buying used anyway, right?

A Deluxe Refurbished System includes these items:

  • Wii U console (32GB; black)
  • Wii U GamePad (black)
  • Wii U AC adapter
  • Wii U GamePad AC adapter
  • High Speed HDMI Cable
  • Sensor Bar
  • Nintendo Land game disc

While these systems can’t be registered on Club Nintendo, they are presently eligible for the Deluxe Digital Promotion that offers points / discount funds for Wii U eShop purchases.
