    I'll have $90 in 2 weeks and I'm (regrettably) buying a gateway. (I hate the thought of PAYING for PIRACY; take notes devs). I'm literally only doing this to play a randomized version of pokemon ORAS.

    Anyway, I need some help finding out the best place to buy it, and cheapest preferred. Nothing over $90 (including shipping).

    Any ideas?

    http://www.eachmall.me/goods-30962-30962.html is the cheapest you'll find. Currently $55 with free shipping, but I recommend going for the cheapest registered shipping as it's significantly faster (should only cost $3 or so)
    That's where I got mine :)

    I totally agree with Satel. Ordered my Sky and GW from them - they all came within 10 working days. The best and most reliable flashcard reseller IMHO!

    $69? it should only be $66 $63 for the gateway and $3 for shipping
    i did not have as much luck with them, i ordered something from them on monday, on tuesday they emailed me to say my credit card was declined(not sure why it's worked everywhere else since then) and asked me to pay again said if i paid within an hour they'd ship it that same day, they finally gave me tracking information on wednesday but didn't actually ship it til thursday. now the whole week is over and i still don't have what i ordered by the time it gets here it will have been a whole week.
    while that is much quicker than it would have come from china using anything but fedex it's still far too long a wait for something i ordered on monday.

    this is a direct quote in an email i got from them "If you can pay in the next hour, we can ship it out today :)"
    i paid in an hour, not only did they not ship it that day like she said they would but they didn't even ship it the next day.
    shipping something thursday that you said you'd ship on tuesday that was ordered on monday is just not ok in my book.

    i ordered on monday paid first thing tuesday morning and they said they'd ship that same day, they didn't ship til thursday; last time i checked thursday was not the day after tuesday.

    Well all I can say is shit happens its a 4-6 day wait max if you have your tracking since it usps first class. Dont forget we have easter coming up and people have lives at least you didn't have to wait 2 and a half months like I did :P
