    if you dont want to order one i just picked up a couple good deals from your local Electronic retailer (the one with the big blue and yellow sign shaped like a price tag).

    4 gb PNY $12.99 (last week)
    8 gb PNY $29 i think...(this weak)

    I have no patience for mail order so i thought i'd share

    if you google the memory card you want and go to the shopping tab, they usually show good prices. But also be aware of the site that you are shopping from. See if they have good reviews or if they are trustworthy. Same kind of system you use on ebay.

    Lexar and Sandisk are doing rebates. I found a site selling Extreme IV 8gb cards for $85 and if you buy three, you get a $150 prepaid visa card. That's like only paying $100 in the long run.

    But unless you have a camera that can utilize a UDMA card, then it's almost pointless to spend that money when you can get 8gb Extreme III's for about $50ish iirc. They're running a rebate on those, but they're smaller. I think it's like $80 or so back for three Extreme III cards.
