Question microSD prices in Canada

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

Anyone know where to get a good, affordable microSD card in Canada. The cheapest I've seen is $109CDN (darn, now it's gone up to $115) for a Corsair 2Gb microSD.

cheers

Couldn't you just order from newegg.com? A SanDisk 2GB is $43 there.

Shipping can sometimes be expensive from the U.S. - though probably still cheaper than buying local.

Have you checked how much it would be? Do you know anyone in the US who could buy it for you and ship it to you?

Ok, I just tried to place an order at newegg, I can't enter a Canadian postal code to determine the shipping costs. Darn.

Hmmm, the 2Gb microSD card is only a little more than the local price - shipping would probably put it over.

Rogers threw in a free 1Gb Sandisk microSD (which just arrived in the mail yesterday) with my Pearl. I was thinking that I'd be better served with a 2Gb but now that I've got the 1Gb I may wait for the prices of the 2Gb cards to drop a little.

cheers
