    I normally buy from focal price and dealextreme

    Deal extreme i used to use the link http://www.dealextreme.com/feedbacks/Brows...ws.dx/sku.18728
    but they are sold out since march 15 as i have 2 order awaiting stock

    focal price doesn't sell them anymore

    is there any other Chinese site that sell the for $13-14 dollars

    i here there volumerate.com but doesn't have free shipping

    priceangel acekard 2i link doesn't work anymore

    and it seem all the other place are like 16.99 which i buy bulk and sell so there goes my profit especially when i know they sell for 13-14 dollars



    so back to my question anyone know of any places that sell for $13-14 like dealextreme and focalprice did?

    I just bought a replacement Acekard 2i from www.gamekool.com.

    $15 with free shipping, and it only took 7 days to arrive! (They estimated 14!)
    I bought it because the contacts on my old Acekard were slipping, this new one has a flush fit. [​IMG]

    This is great news, because I recently did the exact same thing.

    Wow. I think I'm going to buy it from Gamekool.com now.
    Best price so far.

    Just wondering, but did yours come already updated for 1.4? I want to buy one from there as well but I have no way of updating it if it isn't already updated for 1.4 :/

    No, I had to reflash mine when it arrived.
    I don't think Gamekool has the option to flash it either, but if that's not a problem for you, then it's a great place to buy.

    Question.
    Kay, is this a good deal o-o
    I'm paying in Canadian Dollars Btw. But is that worth it? (I'd be using it on my DSL, not DSi)

    I'd recommend http://www.0shippingzone.com/ , just ordered one from there myself. Came in just over a week, and they update it before hand, so you know they're not fakes.

    i also recommend 0shippingzone too. if you're ordering more than 2, the prices of each one will decrease but for one its around 17 dollars. they have a little promotion thing for their acekard and some of their other items which include a metallic stylus for free. of course i opted for the promotion, and all three of acekards that i ordered came with these styluses. it took about 9 days for mine to come in.

    USD$15 (inc shipping) looks to be the best price now, since the DX option has gone. Even then, it's only USD$2 more than what they were selling for, so we're not emptying the old piggybank for too much more!
    I think it is wise to buy a "DSi ready" flashcart these days, so you can never be limited by which console you can use it on (ie. it's backwards compatible). In essence, you are basically trying to "future proof" your purchase. And the cost variance is minimal to the non-DSi carts.

    You say you buy in bulk, so what's the problem?

    If you buy 10 from 0ShippingZone they are $12.50, less than you were paying at DX.

    Well, I did find one on Dealperfect for $13 with free shipping, so that one might be the best price around for one of these.

    http://www.dealperfect.com/detail.dp/sku.21154

    EDIT: Oops, sorry I didn't see that it was sold out.

    Uh, apparently this can be bought by putting the URL into http://www.pbpurchase.com and clicking 'Add to cart'. Can anyone verify this?

    I have had great luck with http://www.0shippingzone.com. They are real AK2i's and they are not expensive from them. And you get a free extendable stylus!

    Is 0ShippingZone in USD? Because if it is, then I think I might buy from GameKool because I don't really NEED the stylus.
