Find the Daily Updated Wii Fit Price
When Nintendo launched Wii Fit on May 19th they created another dream product for scalpers and ebay sellers everywhere. The game and balance board retail for $89.99, but the resale price of the package online has been averaging $150.
This comes at a great time for scalpers. The Wii Console was starting to sell for retail prices online (after 18 months on the market). Lucky buyers couldn't resell the system and make easy money anymore. But Nintendo gives them a gift, another product that is hard to find at retail and can be sold for a hefty mark-up on ebay.
Here is a chart of the average price of Wii Fit for the four days it has been available.
The prices have been coming down every day so maybe this profit dream for resellers won't last long. With a $50 markup online I bet a lot of the people waiting inline for the next Wii Fit shipment won't be using it to burn calories but using it to make a little money.
UPDATE: The price for Wii Fit has not continued to drop as it did in the first few days on the market. Wii Fit is now selling for about $165 on amazon and ebay. Maybe those second shipments didn't arrive in stores as planned.
