oneclickdigital.com

Buyer beware! read their reviews! I will update when I actually receive the camera

Has it very cheap. They do not include a memory card and you can get them to negotiate down the warranty price. Order on phone I paid $99 for 5 year parts and labor + cleaning kit.
Do not buy cards or batteries there!
for cards go to http://www.PROVANTAGE.com
I bought 60x 1 gig ATP for $36

Camera Canada shows the S2 for $565 CDN...

Future Shop shows it at $549... that's after a $50 discount that ends on the 27th

I recently purchased the S2 from Dell for $284 US with two coupons that I found on-line. It is on sale there now for $320 US and you may be able to finda coupon. I have had good experiences with Dell for my PC's, so I went with them.

After researching, I did not buy from oneclickdigital or some of the other really cheap sellers because of their poor ratings. Checking Pricegrabber, it seems that the S2 has significantly dropped in price as the release of the S3 comes closer, however over the past week or so, the prices have not really moved ($330-340 US from on-line sellers with fair ratings).

I am terribly sorry for mentioning them! I had not read the reviews! The reviews are down right scary! I normally extensively research the products I buy, but years of ordering online with out issues made me overlook the obvious; research the vendor. I did order a camera from them and received the "you must call us to confirm email". When I called I received the sales pitch for their overpriced add-ons. I did not really think twice other than "Oh so this is why it is so cheap" but my local phone company and Cable Company use the same ploy, therefore I was not overly alarmed. My camera is supposed to be here Tuesday and while I have received a FedEx tracking number, I am very worried about what I might receive.
I talked to my credit card company fraud services that advised me that if I did not received exactly what I ordered to place a stop payment and they would refund my money. (I love my credit union!) I am reissuing my credit card just to be on the safe side.
Since I mentioned http://www.PROVANTAGE.com in the same breath as this hardly reputable company I want to say I received no hassles from them no confirmation calls. My SD cards arrived 3 days after I ordered with ground shipping. I would most definitely recommend them and do business with them again.

I've read and re-read the above 6 times this morning. I still cannot tell WHERE you have seen this price. W/o that info, I won't be able to tell you anything about the vendor, andI fear that anyone w/o some sort of telepathic ability will be able to assist here...
