    Hi,
    First off, i live in california.

    Anyways, I found three places i would like to order the edge card from, but i am wondering about the SHIPPING SPEED and the SITE REPUTATION. I'm not really worried about price.

    I've never ordered from any of these sites.

    So, here is a list of sites, best at top and worst at bottom.

    Mind you, i put these sites in the order that is closest to my location resulting in the fastest shipping.

    1. Stuffs4kids.com | Based in new jersey, USA
    2. ModChipCentral.com | Based in Canada
    3. DealExtreme.com | Based in Asia

    If i were to only go on site reputation i would probably go with DealExtreme.com, but i have never ordered from any of these sites.

    My main question; is stuffs4kids.com a reputable site?
    How fast/slow is dealextreme.com to ship to the western US?
    Any other recommendations?

    thanks

    Dealextreme is great...mind you if you order from them, I guarantee you that you'll order some other nice little extras on the side like flashlight keychains or gags...its like a kid in a candy store there...mind you I have to tell you that SHIPPING TAKES FOREVER...can take up to 3-4 weeks...if you don't mind long ship times...then dealextreme is the best ever

    I've ordered over 10 times from them.

    thanks for the input.

    I do like those kinds of sites, kind of like thinkgeek.com, and dealextreme does have alot of cool stuff.

    I've heard nothing but good news about dealextreme. It's just the BUT that comes after the praising.

    I do not usually mind, but i do not think i can wait up to 4 weeks...

    Has anyone heard anything about Stuffs4kids.com?

    You CANNOT beat dealextreme.com

    free shipping, great products, but just a little more shipping time (i usually get stuff in less than 2 weeks).

    I ordered mine from dealwoot.com due to the fact that I forgot my paypal user/pass. I ordered with free shipping and it took 3 days to arrive.
