Nintendo’s marketing vice president has insisted that fresh Wii U supplies are incoming to alleviate the new console bottleneck, promising “a great quantity” though warning that shortages may still be on the cards. “Demand has been phenomenal” Scott Moffitt told Forbes, though declined to give any specific sales figures, only highlighting the sell-out presales and insisting that there will be more Wii U units than there were Wii consoles at the older model’s launch.

I am planning to return the Wii Us this weekend to Walmart. got them from walmart.com. does anyone know if I can get the refund back in cash instead of going back to the credit card? at least I will get to keep the 5% CB. or is this totally YMMV from store to store?
both the wii u's i returned to walmart(2 different) bought on credit card, i was given cash back. Hope this helps.

ok I was about return 2 this week to kmart, but both were bought on Amazon for 415+3.99 shipping. I made exactly 50 cents on both but at least I got 10% cashback from Discover,so 70 dollar net profit.
I've always lost my cashback from Discover when I've returned the item. How did you manage that?

Perhaps the same kind that doesn't realize that median is a type of average. Mean, median, mode...all averages. Just sayin.
The term your looking for are measures of central tendency.

Is it a bad idea to return to sender the walmart.com bundle purchases? I know in store would get you the credit back faster but it seems like such a hassle to wait in the line lol

dang the return process @ WM was quite tedious. The lady took out the console from each box and cross verified the serial number. To return 3 consoles and 3 games it took like approx. 25-30 mins. I have like 8 more to return. BTW, I was only offered to either refund back on my cc or store credit. I just took the cc option. Need to stop by another WM later today to return another 3 or 4. What a PITA this Wii U deal has turned into !

can't you return them all to the same WalMart?

I returned all but one black set, which I'm still not sure whether I should keep it, or return and re-buy later.

have a huge backlog of Xbox games from Microsoft store black Friday sale.

yes I can return all to one WM store but was just little worried if it will have any negative impact like asking for my DL,etc., so far returned in two different WMs and all good. will return the remaining tomorrow to another WM store and I will be done w/ this Wii U deal !
