I noticed that as well. For the DVDs and Blu-rays it specifically says 'More titles available'. But not for the games listed. Of course they may still change that for the printed ad, but who knows.

I will have to look at the .PDF version, but i believe that the A Team may be listed twice!

Be sure to check with your store manager on this. Stock may well depend upon the class and size of the store in your area.

Can someone tell me if the any items such as the power wheels for 99.99 would online???

That depends. The overall savings may determine whether the item will be available or not at that price.

To add to what everyone else was saying, this is an amazing deal. I mean first of all you pay $299 for that bundle right now and that's without a $50 GC. As others have said yes this includes the game Kinect Adventures which is a fun game that shows you what the Kinect is all about. If anyone is considering a 360 this year I would easily and wholeheartedly recommend this very bundle. This isn't one I would pass up. Oh and unless you intend to download a ton of games off the Xbox Live Arcade then 4GB will be plenty and even if you do run into trouble the Xbox 360 recently had an update that allows it to work with flash drives up to 16GB so if you run out of space you could always just grab one of those.

Excellent advice. Some may pass on it because it has one major setback....no Bluray. Kids do not care. the Xbox is a solid buy for them. The addition of a Kinect makes it a good family buy as well. Mom gets $50 for the purse......Win Win.

Not bad. Typical deals. Wonder if we will see more. Its un like Walmart to do this but hey. I'm liking some of those. But others are soso. I mean 10$ for 8gb stick? Even stapled beat them on that.


To release this so early, one would have to think that the Execs are looking closely at the reactions on the message boards and Facebook. Walmart has something else up it's secret sleeve..........

Am I the only person who is excited about the 99.00 Wii? Maybe this year we will finally get a game system at our place (if I can convince DS to get the Wii and not the x-box).

I do hope Amazon or Target match this as I'd rather not go to Walmart due to the locations.

Definitely a possibility. . . I wonder if they'll come out (day or two before BF) with a small ad for a secret sale for items around 3 or 4 a.m. to try to keep everyone at Walmart allll night.

Based on price per dollar ratio vs. last year ads, this year deal is MUCH WORSE than last year. 32" LCD is now already going for $199 at some stores, and Walmart is only $10 less at $188. It should have been priced at $149 in the first place. Last year was $199 when most 32" LCD started at $249. Amazon.com has a Haier 32" LCD right now for $199.99 with free shipping, and it is still in-stock. The $198 Compaq laptop has a slower processor with only 1.0 GHz processor speed (10 year old technology) without any HDMI output that regularly sells for $229 right now, vs. a $198 Emachines last year with a 1.8 GHz processor and with HDMI output, so it is MORE expensive this year. The $388 HP 17" laptop is overpriced when some retailers I saw sell a 17" laptop for $299.

The best deal here is the Emerson 40" LCD TV for $248. So far, the lowest-priced 40" I saw is $299.

Overall, I am NOT impressed.

Fair warning to you and perhaps anyone else interested in the Wii for $99. Up until a few weeks ago all Nintendo Wiis had the ability to play Nintendo Gamecube games as well as work with Nintendo Gamecube controllers. Ever since October 23rd all newly manufactured Wiis no longer support Gamecube games and accessories. So it is very likely that this $99 Wii will not support Gamecube games and accessories. For most this may not be much an issue, but some people already have a nice collection of Gamecube games that or they prefer a Gamecube controller to use in games like the Super Smash Bros. series or the Mario Kart series mainly because the Gamecube controller looks and feels most like other controllers from other consoles like the PS3 controller or the Xbox 360 controller. If you don't have a library of Gamecube games or intend this for younger children for whom have never really experienced the Gamecube, then this $99 Wii would be great.

On a different note though, to anyone getting a Wii for the first time, if you have an HDTV then I highly recommend you get a set of component cables for the Wii as, although it won't be true HD like you would find with the PS3 or Xbox 360, but the cables would help make your games look better than with the cables provided. Most all stores sell these cables at around $20 to $25 but if you're not immune to online shopping I might check out Amazon.com or Monoprice.com as either place is assured to give you a much better price on a set of these cables over what most retail stores will charge you.

If you have any questions or comments, let me know.

EDIT - I noticed something interesting, so TAKE NOTE: That Wii console for $99 appears to be just that, the console. Every "bundle" up until this point has included some game with it (the latest bundle, being a console without Gamecube support, includes New Super Mario Bros.) but this $99 Wii doesn't specifically say that it includes a game. So you will want to exercise caution and not automatically assume that $99 deal includes a game, unlike how every other Wii offering before this has. So basically if my thinking is correct on this one, then that makes this offering just a little less sweet as you would then have to purchase a game to go with it.

This could be a real possibility because if you think about it, between midnight and 8AM Wal-Mart doesn't give it's customers any reason to stay in their store, leaving them to wonder off to other places (not counting those that'll already be open (Target/Best Buy) like Sears, for example. So I could see Wal-Mart putting out a separate secret ad with some deals to intice customers to line up for them after their midnight purchases.

And maybe DaFees they'll be some Nintendo DS games in that "secret" ad, *wishing*.

Not only were there no DS of any kind, but there were no games... somethings up :yup:

See, I can't remember that at all-- I remember things we buy, but not the details, not the time, or how many stores we hit. It is like my brain has held it together with coupons and ad matching/waiting in line, etc, so when the mission is accomplished, I forget alot :shock:

do you remember anything that was on secret sale? jog my memory?

Does anyone know much about that wifi router for 25? Is it a good brand? I'm in need of a new one!!! Thanks!!


It's decent, but I believe it's only a single band router. But for $25 it's a pretty good deal.

I gotta say I'm impressed with Walmart this year. Not so much their ad but the way they posted it this year. As a consumer I appreciate their willingness to change what they wanted to what their customer wanted.

I was hoping for a DS deal or a leappad deal. This is the year my child is finally old enough for a ds, I was hoping for the 7 and 10 dollar ds games again too.

I may be skipping walmart for the first time this year..unless they come out with a secret ad.

How many ps3 systems do you think each walmart will have? And do they keep the video games behind the glass doors and you have to wait for someone to help you? Looking at the $28 ones.

I am surprised there aren't more toys too. Seems like something is fishy here, especially since they released it so early. I wonder if there will be another secret ad.

Since they officially announced yesterday the Fire tablet will have Netflix among several other highly sought after apps, they put the best tablet in their ad. THe fire is a really good deal.

I noticed the wii too *have been looking for a while) but it comes with no games so by the time I get those I have paid more. We want wii sports and sports resort.
