    Best place to buy Memory cards

    The problem with living "down under" is that we are sometimes 6 months behind release dates and/or twice as expensive as you lucky folks living in the states (Australia lucky place to live, bad place to shop)

    I would like to know the best place to buy memory cards from in the states or even overseas that offer international shipping.

    I am chasing a Sandisk Ultra II SDHC 8gb. It wont be in Australia for another 6-8 weeks.

    Any help would be appreciated,

    Aussie

    A good site to check out is www.pricegrabber.com

    It's one of many comparison sites here in the US.

    Also try www.shopping.com

    For regular updates of cheap tech deals try: www.techbargains.com

    Adorama has it: http://www.adorama.com/IDSUSD8G.html They or B&H Photo Video (although they don't list it) would be two places I'd completely trust, they're huge and have been in business for years. I've bought a lot of video gear from B&H over the years and recommend them regularly. Both ship internationally.

    Can't you just change your default google search page from Australia to USA and then type in the search string "Sandisk Ultra II SDHC 8gb"? I found 39 different vendors

    I double check my prices against adorama for my camera gear. The price they had it over here was better. I did see the Sandisk Extreme III 16gb CF card for $219. I wish that Nikon stayed with CF than going to SD on the D80!!!!

    Cheers Aussie

    newegg.com is nice, techbargains.com is incredible. LOTS of amazing priced items on there. i got my dell laptop for i think $600 under retail THRU dell. companies put sales on the website and adv. them there, dunno why. but yea, lots of great deals thru other companies (its basically a middle man to display great deals)
    Ours is not to wonder why; ours is but to do or die.

    If you're not in a rush wait until the Thanksgiving weekend. That's always the BEST time of the year to buy tech stuff.

    Then check out Techbargains.com at that time and they'll have tons of real steals.
