    do they steel your money?
    do they steel your ID?
    I know they SAY there safe, but are they???

    and they say there with yahoo, whats that about

    I need an acekard 2i but my grandma is too scared to order stuff over the internet, she'll do it if a have lots of people saying it's safe, if you've ordered from this site and it was safe, and noone stole your credit card # and it's all good, then say so, everyone who used this site please

    dealextreme.com is the best.

    Half price for AK2i (about 13USD), and free shipping. However the shipping is mad slow. Average delivery is 3 weeks.
    And it's VERY safe. Many people from GBAtemp buy their flashcarts there.

    I ordered a AK2i from www.dscardsdepot.com and the card came really fast. I contacted them through email and they responded in a few hours. I would order from them again for sure.

    Id have to say DEALEXTREME as well . i got my acekard2i from them and its one of the best sites id say and as yoshi said it takes some time to get shipped since their offices are in japan i beleive. it took me 2 weeks to get my card to NY but it was well worth the wait. no scams and very efficient.

    I have bought SuperCard Mini from them for my GBA SP, in fact I got one for me, and my 2 sons. However I did get some bad cards, but DealExtreme sent me new ones free, and gave me store credit for the shipping return costs!

    I plan on buying a card for my used DS lite, and probably gonna get the Acekard from Deal Extreme. I just wanna get more info before I make my purchase in which card to get.

    Obviously, we don't know. I wouldn't go off what that other guy said, he only has one post, so he is probably not very credible. I don't know if RealHotStuff ships to Canada, but they're great and have decent prices. Fast shipping as well.

    if you've ordered from them before you'd know it was china ¬¬

    ontopic:

    I'd go with dealextreme they are the cheapest around that I know of they are very reliable and everything I've ordered from there have been legit and arrived within 1-2weeks, they don't steal your ID or CC info either everything comes well packaged, the only problem some people have with delivery times is chinas customs is kind strict and something take a while to get through and I've ordered several things from them so I know what I'm talking about :- EDGE card, PSP 1000 screen, PSP usb charger/data transfer, and a host of other stuff so yes they are safe reliable and DIRT CHEAP + delivery is free on ALL items.

    Right behind you
    Another +1 to dealextreme. Takes 2-3 weeks to get your stuff, but they have yet to let me down. Plus, they do paypal too.

    If you want to pay more and get it faster, I've had good experiences with modchipcentral.com (canada based) as well.

    I've ordered R4 cards and other stuff off a site called focalprice.com. They're based in Hong Kong (much like dealextreme) and have similar pricing / shipping times (~3 weeks to get to the US... "patience is a virtue"). They also do "focal points" thought which gives you points based off how much money you've spent with them and then you can earn extra points by writing reviews and posting pictures. You can eventually trade in points for coupons. I like that site.

    Other purchasing options would be the american sites gamebygame.com (used to be dealwoot.com) and realhotstuff.com- both in the US, CA and NY respectively, so offer faster shipping but they charge more because they're local. They both offer free shipping like DealExtreme and FocalPrice though.

    i have bought a few ak2i from www.0shippingzone.com and they are very reliable. They are the sponser for scdev.org. a couple bucks more than dealextreme but if you have ever had an issue with the product from dealextreme, returns are a pain in the butt, as well as their customer service sucks.

    never heard of that company....try gamezway.com their price on the ak 2i is actually $15.50 and it's recommended by this site! Have heard nothing but good things about gamezway, I'd steer clear of places that are virtually unheard off especially places that do not specialize in gaming devices because they usually have low priority on shipping times and have terrible customer service....take dealextreme for example, it's common knowledge that it usually takes about 2 weeks for shipping but several people have reported not receiving their items for almost 2 months.Gamezway is probably the best site for a good balance of low price and good customer service as well as relatively fast shipping. Also I've ordered from consolesource.com and gamebygame.com before and didn't have any problems with them at all but again their prices are higher and when I order again it will be from gamezway since their prices are alot better.

    They are also sponsers on the gbatemp download site. When you go to downloads, you will see www.0shippingzone.com.

    I don't think so. DX Sevice has problems. There are many customers blame for their unresposible for shipping errors(some people may not). I bought item from them over 2 months but nothing came. I called for help many times, they told me to wait for days, from days to weeks, from weeks to month. After 2 months waiting but no item arrived, I blamed them in forum and they closed my account. sigh...
