i was really lucky to find it as it was on was one of the ebay seller pages and i just happened to read it. at 30 % off it lets you buy it now for about the same price as the auctions, without having to bid. it is a little tricky to get it. anyone having problems, feel free to pm.

To make it easier, you can search for 'Wii' or 'cheap Wii' (or 'PS3', or lots of other expensive toys). At the top of your screen in the sponsored links, it'll show a link to ebay, saying you may get X% off via Paypal if eligible.
That link takes you to ebay. But you don't *have* to buy the item you searched for. So just search for the item you're looking for, then complete the purchase like you normally would.
Just look for the little green 'Microsoft Cashback' banner at the top of the screen - as long as that's there, you'll get the deal.
Here's the other catches:
- You have to buy the item using Paypal, from a 'Buy It Now' auction. - You'll receive your Cashback 60 days after the purchase completes. Then they'll transfer the money into your Paypal account. (This is to prevent people from buying, then returning, and still keeping the cash). - You can only receive up to $200 cashback per transaction, and $2500 maximum annually. - The amount off changes from time to time - IIRC, the most it ever gets is 30%, and it can go as low as 10%.
When you win the auction, you'll get an email asking you to create a cashback account through live.com. Follow the instructions and you're all set.
(Yes, I'm that cheap. This offer has led to lots of impulse buys.)
