Wal-Mart starting Wii U layaway/pre-order program on Oct. 14
Wal-Mart will be launching a Wii U layaway program this sunday, October 14. This news stems from an official Wal-Mart document being given to employees. You can the full details of the program but we’ll summarize the most important points for you.
The Wii U Layaway Reservation Process will begin on October 14 and run until November 1st or whenever Wal-Mart runs out of systems. It could end before that. You will pay a $5 layaway service fee, and must put at least 10% down on the system. So be prepared to pay $35 for the deluxe.
So far this program is being said to only work with the Deluxe 32GB SKU and not the white basic model.
Additionally you can only make two pre-orders per person so don’t get all ebay happy folks.
Wal-Mart will want you to keep your pre-order receipt and bring it on November 18 (midnight for those who can’t wait) to the layaway desk, not the electronics counter.
This could be a great way to get in on the Wii U on launch day. I was lucky enough to score a deluxe model for myself personally, but a lot of you guys haven’t been so fortunate.
Are you going to rush to Wal-Mart on Sunday to put your money down?
