    I just found out I can't get from Dealextreme, Realhotstuff, or anywhere else that ships outside the USA. It's for personal reasons only. Is there a way to get these flashcarts in the US?

    1. Check out those sites yourself, its not that hard.
    2. Go to Chinatown, you can find some there
    3. Real Hot Stuff ships from New Jersey...? Not outside the US

    But DealWoot, RealHotStuff, and a few others DO ship from inside the US, or do you mean you can't buy from those places either?

    How do you know RealHotStuff ships from New Jersey? They only sell flashcarts and other piracy stuff that they can only make in China. How would they even get them?

    They order bulk, store it in a warehouse, and ship the orders they get.

    So is RealHotStuff the safest website where I can order flashcarts in the USA? I checked eBay and Amazon but they sell them from somewhere else. The real reason I don't want to buy from DX is because I showed my brother this and he got so mad that it gets shipped from China.

    It's a safe website. It's probably the only site that's based in the us and sells flashcards and etc. But what's wrong with stuff being shipped from China? All of these things are made there, since it's easier to avoid getting in trouble for a while. The only thing is, is that it takes ~2 weeks to ship to the us.

    He thinks that they will do something bad with your account and steal your identity information when you order there. Crazy, I know, but that's why he hates to deal with international orders. I can't convince him, so I have to buy something that ships from the USA since he never wants to deal with stuff from China or Asia from that matter.

    Yeah, Supercard. But I dont think there are any shops besides RHS that sell it from the US. Also, he read an article recently where some website scammed 50 people into buying something that shipped from China. So that's why he never wants to buy anything international since he's so secure about his orders.

    Dealextreme is very safe, it's one of the most frequently used sites to get flashcarts and etc. There's a list of good sites to buy from somewhere on this site. Things that use PayPal are safe as far as identity and things. You just need to buy from well known sites.

    Whatever I can do, I can never get him to buy from Dealextreme. So RHS is the best well known flashcart site that ships from the USA, huh?

    You do know that Dealextreme does not get any of your credit card information right? Paypal is 100% secure.

    Yeah, I do know this stuff, but my brother doesn't. He just doesn't want any international orders, plain and simple. Also he hates long shipping too.

    If you are looking for a Supercard DS One, check out Kickgaming.ca. They are based here in Canada, in Toronto actually and their prices are pretty good, I bought my M3 Simply from them and they shipped it to me pronto, although I am not that far away but they are safe, reliable and have good prices.

    Tell your brother he is an idiot and racist one too.


    When every person is telling you that there is nothing wrong with a Chinese based website and they have bought from them and had a great transaction and that they don't even get any of your info to begin with since you are using paypal you have got to be a moron to not understand.

    So I read this article about a guy who raped a woman in America and you know what, ALL AMERICANS ARE RAPISTS!!! GOOD FOR NOTHING SCUM! America is horrible. They should all burn in hell!!!


    Do you see anything wrong with the above?
