Nintendo via eBay offers its refurbished Nintendo Wii U Nintendo Land 32GB Deluxe Console Bundle in Black for $175 with free shipping. That's $25 under our September mention (which included a $25 eBay gift card) and the lowest outright price we've seen for this system. (It's also the best deal we could find for a refurb today by $29.) It includes the Wii U 32GB console with stand, Wii U GamePad controller with cradle, and Nintendo Land.
Note: A 1-year Nintendo warranty applies.
These tips and tools can help you recoup thousands of dollars if the unthinkable happens.
