    So excited!! I just bought the boyfriend his Christmas gift off ebay.
    I've been scoping out Wii's on ebay for awhile, usually they go for about 350 on ebay.
    I started watching one yesterday, that really wasnt being bid on. It ended in about 3 hours. I ended up winning the Wii for 280, plus ebay gave me a coupon to use with paypal so I ended up getting the Wii for a total of 250 with shipping!
    I know this is the price they go for in stores but I didnt have to stand in line, or search for one because they are just about all sold out up here. And I didnt have to pay taxes on it either, so if I would have bought it in a store I probably would have spent close to 300.

    Im so excited, I dont know how this item managed to go unnoticed in the ebay world, I was bidding with somebody up to the last minute but I won.

    Sometimes you luck out. Plain and simple. I have scored a few items that should have gone for much more. I am a china (as in dishes buff.....Aynsley Grotto Rose 185 is just one pattern I like). Got a $50 unit for about $12. Once in a while people aren't paying attention.

    Congrats on the find.

    I have been trying to get the wii fit for my moms x-mas present off of e-bay everyone is paying rediculous prices for them. I wont pay over 89 which is retail and they have all been going for 150-170. I will get one no matter how much sleep i miss.

    I was trying to get a wii fit the other day during the dollar deal thing on ebay. It drove me nuts, I kept seeing it but couldn't buy it in time! I'm jealous, I want one!!!

    the wife bought me one for our anniversary then i tore my rotater cuff so no wii for me, anyway we got it at normal msrp at circuit city, she just ordered it online and selected in-store pickup, even though they were out of stock it just told her the day they would be in and it was held at the counter for her

    I know what you mean, I think I almost bought it too early, now I have to sit for a month before we can play with it.
