Wii™ and Wii Fit™ Plus Giveaway

by Angie [A Whole Lot of Nothing] on March 25, 2010

in Giveaways


Congrats to the winner, Jennifer Jozwiak!

You know how when you work at something day after day, night after night, foregoing precious time with yourself family, just to reach that final goal you’ve set for yourself?

That’s how I feel about the opportunity I have to offer you the best giveaway known to mankind I’ve ever hosted. After years of slaving away at this laptop, building relationships, and making up stuff developing my voice, I’ve been given the chance to work with one of the most renowned companies in the world: Nintendo.

To be honest, I’m not much of a gamer. There are a few games I like to play, but in general, my idea of fun centers around inactivity in front of the TV rather than being actively engaged.

Until the Wii™ came along.

My inactivity levels were forced to decline. I had to actually get off my butt to play a video game. I really do remember the first time I saw a Wii™ and how to play a Wii™. I felt it would change the way home entertainment would be seen. Being active. Playing a video game. weird.

We were those people who searched and scoured and begged/pleaded/fought for a Wii after they were released onto the retail shelves. After literally months of waiting for our Wii™ system, we finally brought our baby it home and were immediately mesmerized. ACTION in FRONT of the TV.

And then? The Wii Fit™. Oh. My. Golly. Even MORE action in front of the TV? And playing fitness games will help me lose weight? (I swear the Wii™ gets more action than other things around here.) SOLD!

Just this past Fall, Nintendo released a new edition of Wii Fit called Wii Fit™ Plus. (P.S. I received a copy of the new Wii Fit™ Plus software in exchange for telling you about its awesomeness.) They’ve added to the core of the activities to make them better, more efficient, and more engaging. With tailored routines, you can plan your workout to make the most of your time. For someone like me, that’s incredibly motivating. That, and my girls pestering me to “play the board game!” every afternoon.

Here’s the reason you stopped by. (It’s ok, I know it’s not all about me. It’s about the free stuff.)


Nintendo has given me a Wii™ system (MSRP $199) AND a Wii Fit™ Plus (MSRP $99) and I am going to give them away to one lucky winner.

I know. More than Awesome.

Nearly $300 worth of Awesome.

To enter, leave one (1) comment below letting me know what time in your day will be dedicated to getting fit with your new Wii Fit™ Plus.

Simple. Easy, peasy, chicken cheesy.

Entries will be open through Saturday April, 3rd, at 11:59pm EST. Only US residents 18 years of age and older are eligible to win. Nintendo employees are not eligible to win.

The winner will be selected at random using a random identifier selector to choose from eligible comments left for the duration of the giveaway. The winner will be notified via email by me and will have to confidentially provide their home address, telephone number, and email address. The prize will be shipped within 2 weeks.

This giveaway and blog post has been approved by Nintendo and is posted at the request of Nintendo and Brand About Town.

Disclosure: I received a Wii Fit™ Plus game in exchange for hosting this giveaway, as well as the Wii™ and the Wii Fit™ Plus game to give away.

3 patjasmin April 3, 2010 at 11:46 am

my friend has one and i would usa it in the morning

4 Cheri C. April 3, 2010 at 11:49 am

I will probably dedicate my evenings to working out with the Wii Fit.

5 SHARON April 3, 2010 at 12:07 pm

I really really want this great prize!

6 Jason April 3, 2010 at 12:15 pm

Looking forward to using it when i get out of work around 7 everyday

7 Elkaye April 3, 2010 at 12:26 pm

I’d use the Wii fit when I drive home from school, in the evenings.

8 barbara wright April 3, 2010 at 12:35 pm

Definitely in the morning right after I get the kids off to school. I read somewhere that women who exercise in the morning stick to it better, and it makes total sense. I’ll work out “as soon as I get done” doing whatever for whoever. So if I do it FIRST, I have less of a chance of getting derailed.

9 Lauren April 3, 2010 at 12:44 pm

My evenings will be dedicated to using my new Wii Fit! Thanks!!

10 Michelle April 3, 2010 at 12:49 pm

I would probably use the Wii fit after my husband leaves for work, we’d probably fight over using it when he’s home, so early morning hours.

11 Tiffany April 3, 2010 at 1:10 pm

I would use it in the daytime when the kids are at school.

12 Leigh April 3, 2010 at 1:29 pm

I’d love to use this for my morning workout! Thanks for the contest.

13 Gary McDaniel April 3, 2010 at 1:34 pm

Evening before supper will be set aside to exercise on my new Wii.

14 Crystal F April 3, 2010 at 1:38 pm

I would get up early, before I get my girls up for school, to work out. Thank you!

15 Mark Price April 3, 2010 at 1:39 pm

I will be using this in the evening when I get home.

16 carol lewis April 3, 2010 at 2:01 pm

I walk every morning for 45 minutes, but at my age I need more of a workout. I would use this to add to it also in the morning right after my walk. This would help me burn more calories and also use other muscles that I need to exercise.

17 Debra F April 3, 2010 at 2:16 pm

I can’t possibly get up any earlier, so I’d have to fit my workout in after the kids go to bed.

18 blueviolet April 3, 2010 at 2:18 pm

5 AM is when I’ll meet up with my Wii and make it happen!

in the evening, the whole family, before going to bed

21 Pammy April 3, 2010 at 3:05 pm

In that short span of morningtime when my cat and I discuss the schedule for the day. I think that is when we can both WII together!!

22 Susan Smith April 3, 2010 at 3:06 pm

Later at night when the children are in bed

23 Dan April 3, 2010 at 3:39 pm

25 Lori Morgan April 3, 2010 at 3:51 pm

Most of my workouts would be after work but on weekends I may like having them in the morning. Thanks for an awesome giveaway 🙂

37 DEBIJOT April 3, 2010 at 5:32 pm

38 Susan Ledet April 3, 2010 at 5:46 pm

I would start early in the morning around 7 am. This would be wonderful to have.

39 Kerri Hartman April 3, 2010 at 6:01 pm

I intend to use my Wii Fit as soon as I get up in the morning … a little exercise to get my day started right … then breakfast and a shower before work.

40 Francine Anchondo April 3, 2010 at 6:05 pm

I would use at night before I go to bed.

41 LeeAnn P. April 3, 2010 at 6:24 pm

I would use this during naptime! that’s about the only time I have to myself. Ideally, I’d also use it with the kids for a little extra fun and exercise!

42 Daphne April 3, 2010 at 6:25 pm

Late afternoon
the dinner’s in the oven
the laundry’s all done
the garden’s had it’s lovin’
the bed’s all made
the floor’s all clean
I’m looking frazzled
and don’t want to be seen.

Afternoon’s the best time
to work up my last sweat
cuz that’s the only time left
this body’s gonna’ get!

43 Kathy April 3, 2010 at 6:37 pm

I’m going to set aside 5:30 PM as my time of day to get fit. Who cares if dinner is cooked!

44 Jennifer Jozwiak April 3, 2010 at 6:48 pm

I’d use the Wii when my little girl is in her playyard, so she watch and play while i exercise!

45 Gianna April 3, 2010 at 6:58 pm

After everyone is asleep at night.

46 Chase April 3, 2010 at 7:18 pm

I would use it at about 6pm, Perfect time for me!!!

47 sherrie April 3, 2010 at 7:22 pm

I would use the Wii fit in the late morning. That’s when I feel fully energized and ready to work out. I sure could use one after the holidays. 🙁

48 Nichole LeVern April 3, 2010 at 7:47 pm

I get up each morning and workout before showering and am looking for a way to spice up my routines. I would probably be more inclined to workout upon returning home from work if I had a gaming system to make it more fun. Thanks for the chance to finally have a Wii!! 🙂

49 Rich Kee April 3, 2010 at 7:53 pm

As soon as I get home from work! It’s the best time for me. Thanks a ton for the giveaway 😀

50 shawn April 3, 2010 at 7:59 pm

First thing in the morning is the best time for me to workout. I love the Wiifitplus and would love to win this for my mom

51 korgie April 3, 2010 at 8:02 pm

My 11 year old does not live in a “kid friendly” community and does not get as much exercise as she could. I’ve been wanting one of these for her for ages. She loves them and it would greatly benefit her activity level. Prevent her from being a couch potato!!

52 Jerry Lafferty April 3, 2010 at 8:05 pm

In the morning would be best for me. I am always to wore out after work to do much.

53 Joshua April 3, 2010 at 8:28 pm

I would wake up in the morning and do it for 1 hour.

54 Jack Ryan April 3, 2010 at 8:59 pm

Every morning. I just got laid off and this will be a good way to jumpstart my day.

55 Julia Semans April 3, 2010 at 9:01 pm

During the week I would be using my Wii and working out after work. But on the weekends – it could be anytime!

56 kim e April 3, 2010 at 9:43 pm

early morning works best for me, before the kids are up and need me.

57 tina April 3, 2010 at 9:52 pm

The morning time before everyone else is up to jumpstart my day so between 6:30 am and 8 am thanks for the chance to win

58 Geralyn April 3, 2010 at 9:54 pm

I would like to use it after I get off of work at 2:30 in the afternoon, before getting dinner ready.

59 kristy April 3, 2010 at 9:54 pm

I would use it in the afternoons.. *crossing my fingers*

60 Kim Benton April 3, 2010 at 10:09 pm

I play Wii sports every night with my grandson & believe me you work up a sweat. We could do this together also after bath & dinner. Thanks so much for this offer. 🙂

61 kathy pease April 3, 2010 at 10:12 pm

i would do it in the mornings after the kids go to school or my son would laugh at me 🙁

62 Cathy April 3, 2010 at 10:16 pm

With Nintendo fit I would exercise just before dinner time. That’s when I usually am most physical and used to walk. This is something I could do safely indoors. Have tried the bowling at a friends house, loved the tennis but would really like to try the Yoga!
I wish Anissa the best.

63 matt abramson April 3, 2010 at 10:22 pm

I would probably use it in the morning.

70 Over Thirty Mommy April 3, 2010 at 11:28 pm

Since I already get up at 5:00 AM just to get ready for work, I would have to excercise at night after I get baby to bed (8:00)

71 Lily Kwan April 3, 2010 at 11:35 pm

78 Sabrina April 4, 2010 at 12:18 am

HI!!!!! OMG its 11:58PM here SATURDAY APRIL 3rd, IM GOING TO MAKE IT!!

Anyway, I basically live a healthy lifestyle, I LOVE healthy lifestyles, it just makes me more upbeat, and positive, strong, and happy.

I’ve been wanting to try the Wii Fit, but I can’t with my budget.

Usually I first work out in the morning for 8 minutes, If I had the Wii Fit I would definitley Workout 35 minutes in the afternoon then 15 minutes before going to bed, then drink like a bottle of water after the workout! It sounds like fun!

Oh Boy, cross my fingerzzz!!


79 Minjung Choi April 4, 2010 at 12:23 am

My workout time would be around 5 o’clock. After I come home from school, I’d go on the computer and be lazy. And when I’m supposed to be doing my homework, I’d go workout, not only to get fit, but to procrastinate as well. 🙂

80 Randy Klein April 4, 2010 at 9:55 am

right after work

81 wkp April 4, 2010 at 1:50 pm
