    Outpost.com (fry's online) has Transcend 1GB 80X SD cards at a total steal.

    29.99 are they freakin nuts? Heres the link:



    It's also SLC NAND flash (the better type) and high speed too... just wanted to share.........

    I removed the link because it does not appear to be a real sale.

    I don't know about their online stores, but here in CA, Fry's has some of the most insanely low electronic and home appliance prices you will ever find!

    I don't doubt for one minute they were selling them at that price, but again, I can't vouch for their web store.

    they have 32 stores each the size of a football field from Ca to illinois..

    I did not know that Fry's Outpost.com had such a bad customer rating. I know the stores are nice, but havent bought online....

    I just saw the good price and thought I would pass it along. Hope no one has any trouble with them because of my post


    right now you can actually buy it in the store for 29.99 , and onlinr with rebate for 19.99 after rebate. Frys owns outpost.


    Its in every national newspaper also in the west coast USA, how is this NOT a sale? lol

    probably they got a not so great rap because people buy stuff they dont know how to install when its cheap they try to do it themselves and if they cant figure it out they just return it... i know for a fact outpost goes through more inventory in a week then sammy's, b&H, and cals camera combined. they must be doing something right

    im not sayin there service is the the best in the world, but to say its not a real sale because one site gave them bad reviews.......come on.

    I've made purchases from them in the past and didn't have a problem with them at all. As with any online purchase, do your research and come to your own conclusion. The brick and mortar version of Fry's is an amazing place (there are 4 or 5 here in the Dallas area that I shop at regularly) with prices that are well below most of their competitors.

    If you weren't aware of their stores, and had never purchased from them online before, it is reasonable to have some level of concern with the store considering the reviews that are out there. Please understand that we see a ton of links come through the site and it is very difficult at times to determine which are valid and which may be scams, so when we have that level of concern, we try to be as cautious as possible.

    Trying to moderate such things is difficult and we are just doing our best to try to make sure we weed out potential problems as often as possible.
