Update 9/12/15: The $190 Wii U deal is still going strong although some of the other console deals we’ve listed have expired. We’ve updated the post below with currently available deals.
Interested in getting a Wii U this fall but wish you didn’t have to fork out a full $300 to get one? Groupon probably wouldn’t be the first place you’d think to find a Wii U deal, but they have a fairly hot offer on a 32GB refurbished unit down to $199.99 instantly. On top of that there’s a 5% off VISA card themed coupon code you can use at checkout and cut the price an additional $10 to $190. In addition to that Groupon is throwing in a free copy of Nintendo Land.
If you need new games to go along with your Wii U, Target has a few games on sale for around 30% off. You’ll be able to purchase online or grab from your local store.

Below is the original post from 9/4/15:
This week several retailers have unveiled Xbox One console discounts. The eBay Powerseller “antonline” dropped the price on the 1TB Halo: Master Chief Collection from $400
to only $359.99 – a rare $40 drop with free shipping in the US. That same 1TB console is also offered at Dell Home, and while you’ll have to pay the full $399.99 price tag, there you’ll get a bonus $100 eGift Card. Walmart even has a decent offer, making the newly released 500GB Gears of War: Ultimate Edition bundle quite inciting with an extra controller and a free game of choice bonus for $349 (approximately a $110 in bonuses).
Beyond hardware two AAA PC game releases this week are already getting discounts. GMG has a 23% off coupon code for Metal Gear Solid: The Phantom Pain dropping the price from $59.99 to only $46.20 – an impressive drop considering the rave 10/10 reviews you’ll find from most critics. Another big name title this week is Mad Max dropping 40% after coupon to $36.
