Here's what worked for me. Call the 4 EB Games/Gamestop stores closest to Google every morning before heading to work. If one of them has a new shipment in that morning, go there and buy one. This worked for me back in January or so, and it only took about a week to a week and a half of calling. Also, I don't know about you, but I usually get to work around 10:30, and I didn't have to alter my schedule at all to camp out or wait in line or anything of the sort.

Also, at least back then, everywhere was sold out of the wiimotes, but if you ordered them off of Nintendo's website, they were in stock and shipped within a day or two.

YMMV.

Just to close the loop on this: Because I am a lazy bastard, with more money than time, I ordered a bundle from GameStop.com last Tuesday (6/5). It arrived two days ago (6/12). I'm a happy camper. And, for some reason, DeeAnn is kicking my ass at Bowling and Boxing on Wii Sports.
