In what has to be the coolest promotion of the year, 7-Eleven is offering 711people (of course) a chance at a free Wii starting in November. Distressed because there's no 7-Eleven in your neighborhood? Not to fret, fanboys and girls -- the official rules include a backup plan for those of us denied the pleasure of a Purple S'Creme. Until the Wii becomes available as a prize in November, there are other goodies to tide you over, like iPod Shuffles (that look like they can double as a pregnancy test stick in a pinch) and portable DVD players. Now that's awesome cool!
