Do you have your Wii Remote? I have mine!

I sure do feel dumb. Really dumb. The past few weeks I have meandered around local Target, Best Buy, and Toys-R-Us stores hunting for Wii Remotes and Nunchucks. It is not secret that I scored my Wal*Mart Wii Bundle back in November and subsequently returned all the items from the bundle I did not want. But, I never came across additional Wiimotes so that more than one person could play the game. Every time I went to a store, they were out.

Now here is where I feel both dumb and a little awkward. First off, I am not one to shamelessly promote a product or service -- however, in this case I must. Secondly, since this method worked for me scoring a Wii Bundle from Wal*Mart, I should have realized it much sooner.

To make a long story short, over the past weekend I thought to myself -- it should would be great if a service like NowInStock.net had a service that also looked for the Nintendo Wii accessories and notified me. Because, it worked great when they helped me get my Wii Console. So, on Sunday afternoon -- I signed up for notifications from NowInStock.net for Wii Remote controllers.

Within two days, I was notified that the Wii Remotes were in stock. So, I finally ordered my extra Wii Remotes and Nunchucks from Amazon.com yesterday and their shipment was confirmed today. Thanks again to NowInStock.net, I feel dumb for not relying on you sooner!
