Wal-Mart KitKat gift card stacked with My Coke Rewards gift cards and thus Pokemon Go Plus and KitKat #2 are on their merry way to my house.  My wife was getting way, way too far ahead of me with hers.

One of the only benefits of managing a gas station is the free candy racks. Not sure what im going to do with it. I was thinking about putting my consoles on it. Or some other game related display.

Could also use it as a closet organizer or something.

Start taking home 'free' candy a pocketful at a time and make your own household candy rack.  Sell items to house guests for $1 each.

Duh.

Zip ties are too expensive. Peel some gum from beneath the checkout counter. I know its there. My family owned and ran gas stations since before I was born.

Isn't that the wife that spent $30k on Runescape and shacked up with her online side piece in Tennessee or something?

If so, that candy rack goes in your dining room.

Do you have any of those ice bins shaped like a Red Bull can or a Coke bottle? Those are good for parties. They are waist high and roll around on wheels. Women love them. They are really classy. ;D

Had a red bull one for a while and sold it.

@pbj it was game war. And they never shacked up. Just exchanged pics and texted or whatever.

Sears has some wire shelving like that.  They are putting their stuff up for sale as it empties up.  I'm going to have enough to open a store when all is said and done. 

I've got my consoles in wire cubes similar to that atm.  Since light can go through the display looks a lot brighter, so I say go for it.  You might want to paint it black first.

Well I haven't checked the stock yet, but you might not be able to get a switch anyway.  Reggie tweeted something about the switch outselling any console Nintendo has ever released in the US for the first 2 days.  Of course that could be because they actually produced enough to have it in stock this time.

People sighting them at area Wal-Marts and posting on Facebook here.  Given as there are no games out for it I'm content to wait.

My wife wants to go to the concert anyway, so I'll post pics later this week.   :P

Well they've sold well AND they still have stock.  Nintendo learning!  Who would have thunk it!  It looks like, around here at least the smaller stores are out, but the larger stores still have a decent amount of stock.  I saw some of the game boxes.... they are a special size which means they are going to be a pain in the butt to put on dvd shelves. 

Since you have a Wii U I really don't see the rush.  Unless you are really into bomber man or something.

I wouldn't rush. Id wait until the holidays at the very least. Unlike ps4 and xbox one, the nintendo consoles arent usually centered around online gaming. (Aside from a couple games) so you dont feel like you missed out on all the fun when you finally get to play a game.

Eh I dunno.  The latest Smash Bros. Mario Kart and Splatoon were very online centric.  Mind you Mario Kart 8 still has a large online presence now, so it still wouldn't matter.

So, this is a pretty weak hustle, but if you're around an unattended machine....

Get the Coke Freestyle app.  Make a custom drink and save it.  Go to one of those mix your own combination Coke fountains.  Scan the QR code on the machine, select your custom drink on the screen, tap the pour button, and walk away.  Every 5 times you do this (limited to once per day) you get a $5 Amazon gift card, limit of 2 cards in March.

I walk through a food court on my daily Pokemon Go route, so it's pretty quick and easy.  The employees at Chik Fil A are starting to look at me funny but meh.

I was thinking for the smaller one, i can get some picture frame stands and put all my hand helds in there. Gameboy/color/advance, psp game gear and ds. Maybe put som graphics on there and change them into mini World of Nintendo Cases.

I got the last of my Sears loads the other day.  That's what I'm doing essentially.... I'll make a world of Nintendo cabinet from all the glass shelves and some shelving racks I also bought.  A couple of angle irons, a sheet of plywood for the bottom shelves.... no problem!

So, I missed UPS by 10 minutes last night, and apparently they have a system of "driver discretion" where the item is now taken to a "UPS Access Point" which in reality is a seedy gas station - rather than attempt re-delivery.  My FedEx buddy tells me they're doing the same with Walgreen's.

I have a Best Buy approximately 2 miles from my house, but decided to have it shipped because "shipping is free!" and "I don't want to bother with going to Best Buy!"

Now I gotta drive 10 miles to get my item.

 :lol

Anyway, picture a $15 sound bar here.   :P

I'm more curious as to what a "washateria" is.  It sounds like either a food court where they hose you down afterwards, or something with a happy ending... possibly both.
