Green Monday?? Dam what's next, magenta Thursdays? Lol
But nice deals tho. Just wish Black Friday wasn't so close to rent day , otherwise I wouldn't be late paying it! Then I could enjoy this green Monday.

Walmart is selling a bundle for $389 that includes a Wii U, a Wiimote, and 1 Wii U game. The problem is, that price only includes the Basic version of the console. If you want the deluxe version you have to shell out an extra $50 so the bundle is now $440.

If you break down the items in the bundle they are:

Wii U Deluxe console - $350
Wiimote (Ematic brand, not even official Nintendo brand!) - $25
Wii U game - $60

Add that all up and you get $435, yet the bundle costs $440 (before tax and shipping and whatever) PLUS you're not even getting a name brand Wii remote.

This is hilarious and I'm sure parents will surely jump on it because they have a fear of consoles being hard to find around Christmas time. Bundles are supposed to save you money, even if it's only $5-10 not cost you extra. The even funnier part is that Walmart doesn't let you click on the links to them items in the bundle and open them in new tabs/windows in your browser. You have to go manually type in each item to see the prices. Clearly they don't want that information readily available to you so you can see that they're ripping you off. Be careful...
