Needless to say he wasn't happy. And it turns out he's not alone. Several people have reported problems with the Wii remotes, and as my wife recently got one I've also been a little concerned. Fortunately Nintendo is a great company. They have invented a rubber non-slip jacket for Wii remotes, and they're giving them away free to current owners of Wii systems.</p> <p>This comes direct from the <a href="http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/jacket/jacketrequest.jsp">Nintendo website</a> :</p> <blockquote><p><strong>Wii Remote Jacket Accessory Offer</strong></p> <p>Nintendo is now including the Wii Remote Jacket for the Wii Remotes in all new hardware being shipped. For Wii owners who purchased their systems prior to this addition, we are offering to send free Wii Remote Jackets for their existing Wii Remotes. If you would like to request a Wii Remote Jacket, please start by completing the information form below.</p> <p>If you have already submitted a request and want to check on the status of your order, please <a href="http://www.nintendo.com/cpp/orders/getOrders.do"><strong>click here</strong></a>.</p> <p><a href="http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/jacket/jacket_latam.jsp">Latin American users - Please click here for information for your region.<br /> Usuarios de América Latina - Por favor haz clic aquí para obtener información para tu región.</a></p> <p>Please note, <strong>we will begin shipping Wii Remote Jackets on October 15th, 2007</strong>.

Please do not contact Nintendo regarding your Wii Remote Jacket order until after that time period has passed.</p> </blockquote> <p>You can also call Nintendo customer service at 1- 866-431-8367. I'm putting my call in first thing in the morning. I just can't get the picture of a smashed widescreen TV out of my head!</p> <br /><div id="custom_wisebread_footer"><div id="rss_tagline">This article is from <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/paul-michael">Paul Michael</a> of <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/nintendo-giving-away-free-non-slip-jackets-for-wii-remotes">Wise Bread</a>, an award-winning personal finance and <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/credit-cards">credit card comparison</a> website.

Credit Card offers (<a href="/junk-mail-revenge-part-2-its-war">more on those in part 2 of this series</a> ), fake checks from mortgage firms, endless reams of useless coupons and, of course, the trusty 1lb envelope of garbage from ValPak. But a friend recently told me of a hidden gem inside the ValPak envelope. A gem that's worth at least $20.</p> <p><strong>The voucher that's like Wonka's golden ticket. </strong><br /> Inside ValPak envelopes (depending on your zip code) is a voucher from Northwest Airlines. It looks something like the picture below (I apologize for the poor quality, it's the best pic I could find anywhere on the web).</p> <p><img width="343" height="127" title="NWA voucher" alt="NWA voucher" src="http://wisebread.killeracesmedia.netdna-cdn.com/files/fruganomics/wisebread_imce/nwavoucher.jpg" /></p> <p>Now, what this voucher does is give the redeemer anywhere from $25 to $100 off of a Northwest Airlines flight. Great, if you happen to be in the market for a flight. If you're not, which is probably the case, you'll trash it. But using the mighty reach of eBay you can find hundreds of people who desperately want to save cash on a flight. And that means quick money for the smart eBayer.</p> <p><strong>M</strong><strong>aking the quick buck(s).</strong><br /> All you have to do is list your Northwest Airlines voucher on eBay. As you can see, completed listings (for eBay novices, those green prices are the final SOLD price for the item) are averaging $20-$25.</p> <p><img width="440" height="336" title="Compare listings" alt="Compare listings" src="http://wisebread.killeracesmedia.netdna-cdn.com/files/fruganomics/wisebread_imce/Picture_5_1.png" /></p> <p>That's cold, hard cash for a voucher that was sent to you free in the mail. List the item for a starting price of around $18.99 and give FREE shipping (it's just the cost of a stamp anyway). You may also want to do a Buy It Now option for $19.99. It's all up to you.</p> <p><strong>Get vouchers from friends, make even more money.</strong><br /> Most people will be more than happy to give you their ValPak envelopes, if they haven't already dumped them in the garbage. You could get 5 or 6 NWA vouchers and sell them in seperate auctions, or list them as &quot;5 available&quot; in one auction. Either way, that's at least $100 lovely dollars from something that used to be a pain in your butt.</p> <p>Now, prepare for something you've never experienced before in your life. Get ready to be happy to see junk mail in your mail box. Next time, starting the Junk Mail war.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <br /><div id="custom_wisebread_footer"><div id="rss_tagline">This article is from <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/paul-michael">Paul Michael</a> of <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/junk-mail-revenge-part-1-make-fast-cash-reselling-junk-mail">Wise Bread</a>, an award-winning personal finance and <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/credit-cards">credit card comparison</a> website.

But free ice-cream? Thank you, thank you (although Ben &amp; Jerry's is my personal fav - Cherry Garcia, oh baby).</p> <p>Anyway, on MAY 15th, from 4pm to 8pm, rush along to your local Haagen-Dazs store and you can try a scoop of one of their two new exciting and delicious flavors. Either <a href="http://www.haagen-dazs.com/newflavorday/">Cinnamon Dulce de Leche or Sticky Toffee Pudding</a> (yes please). You don't have to buy anything, just stand in line and wait for you big old scoop of creamy truthiness.</p> <p>To find participating stores near you, <a href="http://www.haagen-dazs.com/shops/shopLocator.aspx">click here</a>. And as this is one of those 'participating stores only' kinda deals, it may be wise to give them a call first. But that's the over-cautious Brit in me.</p> <p>Enjoy your ice-cream, you lucky dogs!</p> <p><em>Photo by <a href="http://www.sxc.hu/photo/570269">The Stock Exchange. </a>Please note.
