    Sorry, the rebate is over, so you cannot buy this for $6 anymore. However, you can get it for $12 at Newegg.com or $13 at Buy.com after google checkout. It's still a great deal, just not as great as the topic states. And there aren't any rebates in either of those deals, so that makes life a bit easier.

    To get it at Newegg.com for $12 bucks, you have to use a coupon.

    1GB Kingston MicroSD at Newegg

    Coupon for Newegg:
    EMC130MCROSD1GB



    Kingston 1gb microsd at buy.com

    This is just a great deal that I wanted to share with everybody [​IMG]


    EDIT: Deleted old deal with the rebate, and added to $12 and $13 deals. (both without rebates)

    From H-Town, Residing in ATL.
    Got a Jap here. Same site, same item, although it was done at the end of last year when the deal had free shipping and totaled $10 after everything. They ship out both Japan's and Taiwan's from what I've read from other people.

    Oops. I forgot that the rebate ended so soon. Well, I guess you would have had to have purchased it by yesterday for the rebate to work. Sorry, the deal is over [​IMG]

    Well, you can still get it for $13 without the rebate. That deal is still pretty good.

    Newegg has a bunch of 1GB MicroSD cards for $12 plus about $5 in shipping, no rebates, including Kingston. I think I will order a couple soon...

    they are slower than ones made in japan, and u have better chances to freeze in games.

    I ordered one of these and it was made in Taiwan. I'm not sure if that is always the case though. I don't think NewEgg is sorting them by manufacturing country.

    They *do* sort by country. There's two different listings. The SDC/1GB is Japanese, but the SDC/1GBKR is Taiwanese.

    I definitely read a post by someone here that you randomly get either the Japanese or the Taiwanese versions regardless of the version you order on newegg.
    Basically SDC/1GB and SDC/1GBKR can both be from Taiwan or Japan.

    Can anyone else confirm this?
