When you buy a Wii or GamePad, you can save up to $20 or even a couple hundred dollars, depending on what the console is and how much you spend.
To make sure that you’re not going to spend more than that, Nintendo has put a number of special codes into its savings accounts, and these will show up in your console’s savings page once you’ve bought the console.
One of the best ways to save money is to make a Wii Virtual Console gamepad.
You can use the code to get the gamepad for $20, which is more than most console games cost.
Nintendo has also created a virtual Wii U account that lets you buy and play games from its eShop for $10.
There are also a couple of savings account-specific features that are worth checking out, including the ability to save a game to a local hard drive.
All of this can help you save money and make sure you’re saving more for your next console purchase.
