    Hi all,
    As you can see, I'm Irish, and I'm in the market for a DS TWO
    Like anyone, I want it to be a decent price (can't go higher than €30), and I'd like it to get to me quickly (I can wait a week. I cannot, however, wait 3) Also, a reliable site couldn't hurt.
    If anyone could point me in the right direction, I would really appreciate it [​IMG]

    It's hard to find a cheap price on a Supercard two
    The best place to buy one would be here http://shoptemp.com/?gbatemp
    But it's 34$ American, not sure how to convert that.

    It's 25.05 euros from ShopTemp but it will probably be a bit different due to the exhange rate.

    I think your best bets would be Shoptemp.
    They sell it for 25.05€, and their free shipping is reliable (expect 1-2 weeks waiting)

    If you have low expectations of their free shipping, they also offer express shipping, although that is somewhat pricey, expect to pay at least another 10€ for that.

    I got mine from Shoptemp, it was about €26 and I got express shipping that was about €14. So approx. €40 and i had it in 2 weeks. I also live in Ireland so you should get it around the same time.

    I have recently made an order on ShopTemp for a SupercardDStwo, when you change the currency to the GBP it works out at £22.22, a very good price for a quality cart.

    It appears Shoptemp lives up to it's hype
    Thanks for such quick responses, guys
    btw, Thanks for reassuring me RupeeClock. It kinda got me nervous when I saw 2-5 weeks on the website

    whatever you do, i honestly wouldn't purchase from shoptemp.
    my gf purchased an acekard 2i from shoptemp about a month ago.
    she didn't get it until three weeks after.
    i ordered a supercard dstwo from here a week and a half ago and shoptemp has a policy that states that once they send the order information to the company that actually ships your product, it's completely out of their hands.
    that company is hong kong airmail, unless you pay $20+ USD for shipping.
    HK airmail hasn't even processed my order and it's been a week and a half.
    so i probably won't see my card for another month.

    also, my friend ordered a supercard along with a bunch of other things (8GB micro sd, screen protectors etc,) and that was about two weeks ago.
    his order still hasn't been processed with HK airmail either.

    needless to say i'm never purchasing from shoptemp again.

    on the other hand, realhotstuff has supercards for $40.00 USD which is $5 USD more than shoptemp, but their free shipping guarantees you'll receive your order in 3-5 business days.

    so in essence, it's similar to purchasing a DS2 from shoptemp and paying $5 shipping, to receive your order within the same week.

    how they offer free shipping for service like that and shoptemp makes you pay $20+ is something i don't understand.
    the bottom line is, if you're okay with paying $5 less and receiving your order in about three weeks, then that's fine.
    but of course if you're okay with paying for the pricey shipping from shoptemp, then you should disregard this [​IMG]

    edit: by the way, we live in california.

    I ordered twice from shoptemp and never had an issue with it. I got my stuff in two weeks.

    Anyway, there's the Shoptemp forum for stuff like this.

    shoptemp has a cheap starting price, but all the little fees makes them even with their competitor and in some cases more than their competitor

    like their acekard
    15.99+$2 for flashing and update+ $2.50 for packaging and it totals $20.49 shipped
    other places sell acekards that includes all that for about $18 shipped

    "+$2.50" for packaging? What? You should not need to pay extra to have the packaging.

    The flashing service is entirely optional, only necessary for users who only have a DSi.

    Realhotstuff is nice if you live in the US, but the person asking lives in the UK (unless Ireland is seperate now) and decent speed international shipping is expensive no matter what.

    it's only $1 but if you want the tracking number and packaging that other shops offer for free, than you need the $2.50 option
    and most shops update their cart before delivering it to you for free, unlike shoptemp who adds a fee

    No it isn't. The DSTwo can be flashed even if you have an updated DSi due to the onboard CPU. The DSOne is similar, but it uses a USB flasher to update from your computer instead.
