    Well I just order from Newegg (Canada) and with paying $20 for shipping I want to know how fast it'll be! So I'm asking how long will it take to get to me?

    Considering you paid $20 for shipping, they will be delivering by UPS...also consider they don't have a Canadian warehouse...expect it in 3 business days.

    Mind you that's the standard...we have no idea how long customs will hold it up for. Its generally fast but don't always get your hopes up...when they give you the UPS tracking number, figure out where its coming from first.

    Well it's just some MicroSD cards so I don't see why customs would hold it at all.

    Well I've order from DX before and it takes forever... Two weeks is the fastest somethings ever come! So 5 days still isn't bad!

    Are microSD cards so hard to find in Canada that you'll gladly pay 66% more for shipping? (assuming you purchased an 8gb card, the largest they carry)

    I was thinking the same, unless he bought a bunch in bulk... $20 for shipping is crazy.

    Toronto is pretty good with the prices but it seems the prices are worsening as the days go by. Don't you have NCIX locally in vancouver?

    I used newegg to buy some MicroSD cards a while back. Great site, fast shipping, fast delivery. $20 bucks is extreme for shipping, but it is Canada. :L

    I got 8 Kingston 2GB MicroSD Flash Cards for $18 (with shipping). That's like $2.30 per card!!!!
