Last Friday Nintendo announced a raincheck program, exclusive to GameStop. This program is for those of you desperate for a Wii, willing to wait until January, and willing to shop at GameStop. Today GameStop outlined the details.
A limited number of reservations will be available at each store and only one reservation can be made per household.
The reservation process requires payment in full at $249.99 plus tax, to guarantee delivery in January. Customers will receive a custom-designed DVD case emblazoned with a Wii and the iconic Mario character wishing a "Happy Holidays! Your Wii is on the Way!" Inside the DVD case is a guarantee slip that provides gift-giver guidelines and an explanation of the gift receipt.
When the reserved Wii console arrives, the gift-giver will receive a telephone call indicating that their system is available for pick-up. Consoles must be picked up at the store location where the reservation was placed.
We suggest you start lifting weights to prepare for the Friday shoving matches.
