    The only catch to this is that you have to buy 3 of them, and presumably have to be in canada? Its at newegg.ca on their main page. Use coupon code Catop50.


    If you buy 3 Kingston 8 GB micro SD cards it only costs you $17.47 + tax and shipping! For me in Alberta it was $35.03

    *EDIT*
    Thats $17.47 for all 3 cards by the way, not each. So my total was 35 for 3 cards including shipping.
    Annnnd the item has been deactivated now. Was probably a mistake. Hopefully they dont cancel my order [​IMG]

    According to the site 'item deactivated' just means its out of stock. So far so good I just wish more people had a chance to get in on this hot item. I was thinking about buying more when they ran out and so was science. too bad =/

    Seems to be more than just out of stock. They have put a limit of 2 on the item now and removed the coupon *grin*

    Looks like they werent expecting them to be quite such a big hit [​IMG]

    Figured it would be either Edmonton or Calgary... I'm actually going to Edmonton tomorrow

    And I can't check mine, Newegg isn't loading for me. I'll check later, hopefully mine is also shipped [​IMG]
