Where indeed? Stories are surfacing daily that Wiis are sold out. Alternatively, that stores are hoarding Wiis and not putting them out on shelves. If you’ve got someone on your Christmas list that wants a Nintendo Wii, perhaps even you, here’s some tips on getting your hands on a Wii.

First get your relatives in the act. The Wii may be sold out in your neck of the woods, but perhaps not theirs. Have them contact the usual suspects (electronic stores, video game stores, department stores, and discount stores) by phone. Find out when the stores get their shipments in and make sure you call back on that day to see if any have arrived.

When I wanted a Xbox, all my local stores were sold out and not expecting anymore till a month out. My aunt in Denver though called around and found some in a suburb. A few days later after I paypaled the money to her, I had a Xbox! Therefore, it can indeed work.

Second, call around to the small towns perhaps an hour or two away. The demand for a Wii there will probably not be as great as in the bigger towns. Why, wouldn’t they want a Wii too? Of course they would, but there’s not as many people in a smaller town therefore less demand. Unless they’re hunting for a Wii for an out of town relative. Hurry! Call the out of town stores first!

Third, check online. Many big outfits have online stores such as Wal-Mart that many people may not think to check with. Check if any are in stock and if not, email or call for expected dates of delivery. Hedge your bets and place orders at more than one online store. The stores won’t charge your credit card until the Wii ships. When you get notice that one has shipped, cancel the orders at the other stores.

Fourth, if you have the money then go to eBay. The prices there are exorbitant for the Wii, but you will definitely have one for Christmas!
