Buy a Dell, get a Wii

A friend of mine recently decided to buy his kids a Wii for Christmas this year. After trudging to four different stores only to find "Sold out" signs, he gave up and ordered one from a guy on Craigslist for a "slight" premium.

A friend of mine recently decided to buy his kids a Wii for Christmas this year. After trudging to four different stores only to find "Sold out" signs, he gave up and ordered one from a guy on Craigslist for a "slight" premium. It's too bad he didn't wait a few days, because now Dell has a unique promotion. With the purchase of certain high-end computers Dell will throw in a Wii for list price. After discounts, the Wii is essentially free.

In the example above if you order this Studio XPS system you can get a Wii added for $249. That's more than covered by the instant savings Dell gives you on this model normally. (Note that the screen says $249 but the Scrooge-like site actually adds $250 to the price if you select it.)

So, if you're feeling Grinchy because you can't find a Wii for little Timmy, here's another option for you. Be sure to hang some extra-large stockings by the fireplace (with care) for Santa to fill with those extra batteries and controllers you'll need.
