Gamestop is offering $50 trade-in this week only for your GC towards a wii. But I've been bouncing around the local GS's since sunday and they keep telling me "No wii's yet maybe tomorrow" Anyone else have luck with this? Is corporate pulling a bait and switch by offering a limited-time deal and then holding back inventory?????

Brilliant promotion. "We'll give you $50 for your GC, the problem is we don't have a wii for you. Ok?"

I traded in my Gamecube on Sunday and got $50 towards a Wii which they had in stock. This was in Woburn, MA. I got $58 credit towards a Wii for Gamecube, AC Adapter, Composite Cable, Component Cable, and 2 controllers.

thanks tekno. If they don't make good w/ a Wii tomorrow, or at least verify they sold out before I could get there, i will call it in to corporate. Something is rotten in denmark...

No problem. I have heard of people having problems with no Wiis in stock. The fine print of the ad says no Rainchecks so they don't hold one in the future and they don't just give you credit for the store.

I wanted to keep my GC controllers, so i sold my cube + power + s/composite video cable on ebay.

Also got $70 for the component cable in a separate auction.

Many local Gamestop and EBgames had their Wii sale this past Sunday. About five of the ppl in line w/ me sunday morning had their old gamecubes w/ them. LOL.

Ironically, many Ebgames/Gamestop held their Wii inventory all last week JUST for this Sunday's sale.
