Don't buy from Bestbuy/Circuit city!

For a 2GB SanDisk SD card at Circuit city online, It would cost $89.99 for it. (+7.42 tax;$97 total)
Best Buy sells the same 2gb SD card for a whopping $109.00 online.(free ground shipping)
Fry's/Outpost.com, has it for $69.99 online. (around $6+ shipping)

However at Newegg.comthey have it for $65.99 online.
Shipping is only 4.99(3day) also. Much less.

Buy Newegg!

I never buy from WorstBuy or CircuitS--tty.

I usually buy my audio gear from Local Shops or direct (usually direct sell companies, they often have fantastic return policies, as well as excellent value). Only problem with local shops is the only time I can really go and spend enough time to figure out what to buy is on saturday, and most local hifi shops are open saturday by appt only, and honestly, I don't feel I spend enough to be asking for someone to give up their day off to spend 5-6 hours showcasing equipment to me.

I usually buy my computer parts through Newegg, Directron, Sidewinder Computers, SVC, Krex, or some other company that slipped my mind. Local shops are not worth it for computer parts....very few shops have anyone that knows the difference between an athlon64 and a corn flake, let alone what thermal compound is best for what application...so why pay more to support a fleet of mostly inept register punchers?

I'm not particularly fond of GeekSquad....but GS is lightyears ahead of the average tool I see in most of the computer shops I've been to. (snipped massive rant)

And for bike parts, between LBS, PerformanceNashBike, JensonUSA, and PricePoint.
