Congrats to Jason of CA (Forbidden), the winner of the giveaway!

Attention, Ben's fans! Tired of those horrible Nintendo bundle deals in the Black Friday flyers? So are Wii!

We are continuing our Black November celebration of deals with another awesome gaming console giveaway. One of you will win the 32 GB Nintendo Wii U Deluxe Set in addition to Super Smash Bros and Mario Kart 8!! (Total MSRP: $420).

The 32GB Nintendo Wii U Deluxe Set bundle includes the black Wii U console, Super Mario 3D World and Nintendo Land. The Wii U GamePad features a 6.2" 16:9 LCD touch screen, motion control system, front-facing camera, microphone, stereo speakers and rumble feature.

Of course, you will also receive the recently released and well-reviewed Super Smash Brothers as well as another AAA system seller, Mario Kart 8. This could potentially be more Mario than any one person can possibly handle, but we are taking the risk!

The giveaway ends at 9:00 AM PT on Monday, November 24th, 2014, and we'll announce the winner later that day. You must leave a comment on this post to qualify (registration required).

In addition to earning one entry for your comment on this post, you can also earn an additional ten entries to increase your odds of winning if you leave at least 10 comments (helpful, interesting, critical or funny; not spam) on other deal posts before the end of the giveaway. You can also try giving us your best Luigi stare to see if that works.

Subject to these Rules & Regulations. Here's the list of Previous Winners.

Good luck!
Time is almost up, ladies and gents (and genetically-modified dinosaurs). There are people already forgoing a delicious Thanksgiving dinner to camp outside retailers around the country. Many online sales have already kicked off as well!

If you are looking for the retailers that seriously procrastinated on releasing an ad, we've got a great roundup for you.

The most impressive of the week is the Fry's Electronics ad. They have a very aggressive array of video game console bundle prices; $249 for the Wii U Super Mario bundle (cheapest of any retailer), $299 for the Xbox One Assassin's Creed bundle and $389 for the PS4 GTA bundle.

A few other standouts from the Fry's ad include the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1" Tablet at $199 ($249 at other stores), an Acer 15" Laptop for $138, a 32-inch Sony LED HDTV for $98, a 50-inch "Trusted Brand" LED HDTV for $199 and a "Trusted Brand" DSLR with lens kit for $248.
