If you were brave enough to be in line early last night (a.k.a. super early this morning) at your local Old Navy store, then you were also lucky enough to have scored a bracelet. I, of course, got there too late and missed the plastic-y promotional accessory.
That bracelet is basically a go-home-and-sleep pass so that you can get some rest, freshen up a bit and come back any time later today (November 23, 2012) to get your free copy of Super Mario Bros. U for Nintendo’s new Wii U game console. Assuming that you also spend $40 or more today as well, of course.
This store, as like most Old Navy locations, only had a limited number to give out which were allocated pretty much right away. According to what the nice line lady told me, this store had only 48 copies.
Pretty much everyone who entered the store, however, was handed a nice “Here’s Your Chance to Win A Wii U System” entry code card that printed to look like and trimmed to the exact shape of a white Wii U GamePad controller.
In order to enter, you also have to provide your name, home address and email address through the Old Navy Wii U promo web site, so they pretty much scooped up a lot of mailer info today. If you do decide to enter your code, you’ll need to do so by 11:59 p.m, Monday, November 26, 2012.
Old Navy also has a Wii U on display to try within each store, which should be playable through the weekend. The store I dared to enter, however, had a big ol’ “CLOSED” sign on it, so no one was playing anything.
If you were lucky enough to get a bracelet and a free New Super Mario Bros. U, let us know. We’d love to see a picture of it
And it you won a Wii U console, grab a screen cap of that sweet action as well. The rest of us get to see the loser screen instead:
And as for Old Navy’s other deals: Well, the hour+ checkout line was not worth it for a $10 sweater, $5 fleece or half-price $40+ “outerwear.”
UPDATE: Seems that, after you enter the code, you are emailed a coupon good for $10 off a purchase of $50 or more good from November 25 through December 8, 2012. So I guess it might be worth it if you plan to shop Old Navy for the holidays.
