    Not sure if they sell exactly what you want.
    realhotstuff.com
    got me my card from NJ to OK in 3 days.
    Should be about the same or less for you.

    ($18 for a normal acekard2, with free shipping)
    but its $1.20 extra for shipping insurance which I recommend you add
    so $19.20 meets your requirements, enjoy.

    DealExtreme is from Hong Kong... so if you were thinking of buying from them, why not buy from Shoptemp?

    I ordered mine from GameKool (HK) and it got here in a week.
    Conversely, I ordered my R4 (real one) a few years back from Divineo.com (Canada) and it took over a month.
    When I ordered my R4, I chose Divineo.com because it was a reputable place and located in North America. They charged me considerably more than recommended places from China... but I said 'Fine. It's worth it because it's a reputable place and will get here quickly...'

    IIRC, ShopTemp still has a $5 off coupon code you can use to get an AceKard 2i for 11.50, and includes free shipping.
    GoodGREAT price, relatively fast (from what I hear) shipping, and a reputable shop affiliated with GBAtemp... you can't beat that.

    I know you said acekard 2 but acekard 2i is better and only like a dollar or so more with dsi capabilities.

    you can get it here http://www.simplymods.com/products/Acekard-2i.html for 16.50 from San Jose, CA
    haven't personally bought there myself but I found the link on the boards here of others suggesting it so I'm guess its good.

    also from http://www.leetmod.com/acekard-2i-cartridg...e-ds-p-169.html for 16.99 from somewhere in the states... not sure where.. just know its somewhere here lol.

    Haven't ordered from either just heard of positive reviews from other people. I get all mine from HK for like 13$ lol.

    I've bought from deal extreme. They are in Hong Kong, and while the product itself was as advertised, it took a few weeks to arrive. Yes, a few WEEKS. In one case, it took over a month. If you want quick, don't buy Deal Extreme.

    I recently bought from http://www.mygamingmart.com/

    It's a Canadian company, so the shipping is pretty quick. It arrived within the week. It's about 30 bucks though, not 20 like you were looking for. But I'd recommend them.

    PS: I agree with the "Buy Acekard 2i" statement. With all the hassle happening with the "Bad Batch" of Acekard 2.1s recently (That I myself got caught up in) I regret not buying a 2i myself. So yeah, pay the little extra, get a 2i.

    RealHotStuff is located in New Jersey. I know you said under 20, but this is only pushing for envelope by 2 bucks, which is the price of a cheap school lunch. And it comes with free shipping, so it's probably less than if you found one for 20, plus the whoever much shipping is.
