GameStop is currently offering a promotion that will give you $50 trade-in credit for your Wii when you’re ready to trade up to a Wii U. The promotional credit can only be used on trading up to a Wii U and you’ll need to have all the original Wii accessories available. The offer is valid until June 2nd and you can trade up to either a basic or a deluxe edition. For anyone considering this offer, the Deluxe set is worth it for the extra game and charging dock that comes with it, not to mention the 10% off Deluxe promotion when you buy games from the Nintendo eShop.
This is a decent deal for someone who might be interested in upgrading and since the Wii U is backwards compatible, unlike other consoles, you won’t have to get rid of your game collection, either.
