Update: Wii Raincheck Good Idea?

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed.

I’ll admit… I was a little harsh on the “Wii Certificate Program” back when it was first announced before Christmas.

Wii Certificate Program

Some time has past (over a month to be exact), so was this “program” worth it?

Personally, I was never convinced that sitting on a $250 I.O.U was ever a good idea… but what do I know. I’ve had my Wii for almost a year now, so I don’t know of the “Wii” hunger I’m sure some of your have endured.

Did any of you WiiSpinners use this program? If so… did you have any issues when picking up your Wii on the scheduled date? If so I’d like to hear about it.

    i have never, and will never hand over that much money for a piece of paper with a video game character on it. i think a lot of you will agree with me that nintendo, although seemingly harmless and cute, is really an evil heartless golem that enjoys watching children cry as their parents hand them a $250 piece of paper that basically says “We love you, just not enough to stand in line.”

    I used this program and it turned out to be an excellent idea.
    Although, the idea of going to our local gamestop at 3 am in the morning was not so much a good idea.
    Since, Gamestop opened up at 9.
    And the first person besides us came at 8:45.
    :/
    Some guy tried to sell us a wii for 500 dollars too, which was entertaining.

    But anyways, the program…
    I put down the 250 (plus tax) and I got the DVD case, bummed that there wasn’t anything in it.
    But, I did get my Wii in little under a week, which was amazing, I didn’t think it would come that fast.
    There was no hassle in getting the Wii, I gave him my receipt, and he gave me my Wii.
    Easy as pie.

    Pictures of that amazing day:

    I already got a wii before they were SO hard to get. But it looks like a good idea to me.
