Can I get a Wii U?

What's the best way to get a Wii U? I didn't stand in line on launch night and now I want to buy one at a normal price, sooner rather than later.

Nintendo's new console, Wii U, is sold out in all my local stores. Perhaps in all stores in all of time and space. But I want one. Pretty badly, though not desperately.
Back when the original Wii came out, I was keeping up with gaming press, so I knew which store to hit on what day of the week to have the best chances. Nowadays, I can't be digging through a million articles like "No One Will Buy The Wii U" on sites like Kotaku trying to get useful info, and so I turn to the hivemind.
I thought for some reason I'd be able to order a Wii U on Amazon or something and have it delivered in a month or so. Silly of me. So, what do I do? Call Target every day? Get a Costco membership? Should I break down and get myself on the GameStop waitlist? I don't want to pay an extra couple hundred bucks to get one off Amazon Marketplace or eBay. Am I just S.O.L.?
