Columbusites looking for some great last minute holiday sales in mobile gaming this week need to hit up their local Meijer and Micro Center stores, as both are offering great deals on the Nintendo 3DS and Apple iPad 2, respectively.

Meijer's 3DS deal was inside its weekly sales flyer sent out over the weekend, while Micro Center announced the extension of its holiday sale yesterday.

Nintendo 3DS on sale at Meijer

Meijer is giving away a $30 gift card with every Nintendo 3DS bought this week. The 3DS is priced regularly at $169.99. Considering Meijer also recently issued a round of Santa Bucks coupons, the smart gaming shopper might want to see if they can sneak a coupon in on the same invoice for extra savings.

The $30 gift card rebate isn't quite as good as Best Buy's $50 gift card deal on the Nintendo 3DS from earlier this month. For good measure, Best Buy is matching Meijer's 3DS deal this week.

Apple iPad 2 sale continues at Micro Center

Micro Center extended its iPad 2 sale for the last week of the Christmas shopping season. Essentially, all iPad 2 models, WiFi and 3G, are available at a $50 discount. Apple's popular tablet computer originally went on sale at Micro Center for Black Friday.

Those already owning an iPad should check out the last minute holiday app sales at the iTunes App Store. Many quality games are now available for free or as low as 99-cents. AppShopper is a great way to keep abreast of the latest app sale prices as they happen.

With Christmas right around the corner, the smart Columbus gamer needs to take advantage of these great last minute mobile gaming deals.
