Amazon vote is back, PS3 and Wii offered

If you are one of those die-hard gamers who camped out for hours and still failed to get a gaming console this holiday season — I have good news for you. The rumors that TechCrunch is spreading about Amazon to sell Wii and PS3 at retail price have partially come true. The old holiday promotion from Amazon is back with a new twist.

Go to this Amazon page, select the item you want: PS3 (20GB), PS3 (60GB), or Wii and click “Sign up” button for your chance to buy it on Tuesday, December 19 (you will need to come to the same page to find if you are the winner). Some new rules apply:

Your account must have been created no later than 11:59 p.m. (Pacific time) on December 11, 2006.
You need an authorized credit card on your account.
If selected, you are eligible to buy only the deal that you signed up for.

Swiss KnifeThe vote ends the end of the day tomorrow so hurry up for your chance (how ridiculously it may sound) to buy a gaming console at retail price.

It may be a good idea to come and check back early. When I took part in the last week’s vote I came to check the page around 1am to find that I lost (as usually) and Amazon offered me a Swiss Army Knife for $2.99 shipped to compensate for the inconvenience (not that I particularly had any complains, but the knife came very handy). By the next day morning all knives were gone. :-(

    Thanks for the tip! It looks like the Wii is a better bet for reselling on eBay, retails for $250, selling on eBay for 450-500. What are your thoughts?

    That is what I voted for too! Will have to check on it tomorrow…
