    Hello,

    the ShopTemp guys have decided to offer a $5 discount on the Acekard 2i for all GBAtemp members.
    Why the Acekard 2i? Because you guys have elected it "Flashcart of the millenium" [​IMG]
    That takes the price of the Acekard 2i down to only $11.50.

    I wish they were pre-flashed to v.1.4 before they were shipped.

    Not going to lie, this sorta pisses me off.

    I had the coupon inputted on like the 8th, but didn't get to order until the 11th. Then it disappeared, and now it's coming back. That reeeeeeally pisses me off.

    Oh I would to. But you have to admit, if it was you, you'd be pissed off too.

    I can't do much, as I already paid the 25 dollars -_-

    But hey, I can dream.

    Just wondering, is it possible for non-GBAtemp members to redeem this coupon?
    Because my cousin is not a GBAtemp member and he wants to buy an Acekard 2i.

    Pretty sure all you have to do is enter the code and you'll get the discount. It's not like they can tell who is from GBAtemp or not. This is labeled as a Temper's Deal probably because it's made available to those who are on the forum. So naturally, people outside of the Temp wouldn't know about it.
    But I'm sure sharing the code with your cousin is fine!

    It looks like that's now an option! You can pay a little extra for their premium update+flashing service.

    Just ordered the Acekard with 8gig card using the coupon! I've been using a slot-2 M3 SD for many a year now. I still have an original DS as well! This shoptemp thing is great. I'm glad that I'm able to buy a cart, but contribute some revenue to the site as well.

    And here I was hoping that the coupon would apply to each individual unit, or is that just an oversight?
    But then what's stopping me, or anyone else, from making multiple separate orders with free shipping?

    They don't want people buying them for resale later. [​IMG]

    An Acekard 2i for $11.50 is unbeatable.

    Hot hot hot! Just ordered a bunch! Hopefully I can get rid of them within a month when they arrive.

    What's the Premium Update + Flashing Service?

    For people who have a DSi/XL running 1.4, and no other system or compatible flashcart, they won't be able to run an unflashed Acekard 2i.

    Shoptemp will reflash the Acekard 2i and make it DSi 1.4 compatible for you.

    I thought all new Acekard 2i are DSi 1.4 compatible.

    The AceKard 2i should come with the USB flasher like the SuperCard DSOnei. That would solve the problem. I wonder if the DSTwo will also have the flasher, I bet it does.

    Good thing I didn't actually checkout yet. Just found this out. I'm buying 15 Acekard 2i and the following happens:

    $11.56 (with coupon) X 15 = $173.40

    However, I'm getting charged $243.66. Original price without coupon for 15 Acekards is $248.66.

    This is CDN btw.

    coupon is only for one unit

    pretty cool if I ever upgrade to a DS XL

    btw, all you have to do is enter the coupon on your shopping cart

    you dont need to use your member info
