Hi guys, I live in the UK and would like to buy a 1GB San Disk Ultra II card. The cheapest option seems to be to buy from a US retailer on ebay who will shipfor about 55 GBP (100 USD).

My question is, I have a friend who is in the US (California)for a month, can anyone recommend a store where she would be able to pick one up? and how much would she expect to pay.

I have triedsearching the web, butobviouslyjust find online retailers.

many thanks in advance for any input

There are national electronics chains such as Staples, Best Buy and Circuit City which sell memory cards.

They usually sell them more expensive than you would find online in the US though.

If ever they are especially cheap it is by way of mail-in-rebates.

If your friend is going to be in california they could probably find a Fry's near. http://www.frys.com/localframe.html



Another option would be to order it online beforehand and have it delivered to wherever she will be staying I guess. http://www.pricewatch.computs the 1gig card at about 90 dollars US.

If you are willing to go with another SD card manufacturer you might be able to find cheaper deals. Also if you were willing to get two 512mb cards, there's a PNY 512 for about 30 bucks here : http://www.staples.com/products/Spot...55/Default.asp
