$119.99 for SanDisk 2 GB Ultra II Memory Stick Pro Duo, good deal?

SANDISK - 2 GB Ultra II Memory Stick PRO Duo

I've waited for a while to buy an extra memory stick for my PSP, and after searching, this is the best I can find for a 2 gig. Should I hold out for a sale or is this good?

No.

I bought one for $109 2 months ago in Amazon. It wasn't an ultra II but the PSP doesn't that kind of speed.
You should be able to find the one I bought for under $90 with rebates. I think I saw it for 70-80 with some MIRs.

Amazon $111 (they recently had some $25 rebates on these, but nothing current, you might hold out):
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS...Fencoding=UTF8
Shop.com $96.27:

Buy.com $108.99:

Dell does have coupons floating around since end of quarter is coming up for them. If you have coupons Dell might be the place to get it.

Thanks. I'm doing the Outpost one.

There are a bunch of Dell coupons here, but the best is 10% off $100 with Paypal or $20 off of $150 for any Electronics/Accessories. And neither really apply to me unless I want to do a little extra for that buck.

edit: Crap I can't get the rebate on outpost to show, any help? And also, if it does show and it ships now but doesn't get here till the 19th (the rebate is valid until the 18th), can I still do it?

I noticed it doesn't load, but you could request it sent to you via mail using this form - http://shop1.outpost.com/rebate_request.jsp?p=4442836
Also, don't worry about the dates thing. As long as your purchase date is before the end of the rebate you're ok and most of the time a rebate will require you to send in UPC code plus receipt within 14-30 days of the end of the rebate (should say on the actual rebate form).
If you don't want to wait for them to send you the rebate form you could email outpost about the bad link and they would probably give you the right link pretty quick.

Thanks for the reassurance
Sounds good, I'm requesting the mail form and emailing them just in case that's faster. Now I hope the 4GB doesn't come out on sale really soon.

There was a hot deal post for goyabe.com for a 2GB for $70 shipped seems to have disapeared. I ordered one, the seller has good feedback on Ebay. Their BIN price is $69 + $14 shipping on ebay so cheaper to order through the website. Ill post back when I receive it, a little concerned it's too good to be true price wise.

The go-yabe one is still the best deal, unfortunately it's very fishy. Anyone know about it? 69+1 dollar shipping is incredible for a 2gb Memory stick pro duo.

It is. There are two types of slots, Memory Stick and Memory Stick Duo.

Any type of Memory Stick fits in the first type. Regular Memory Sticks fit perfectly, while Memory Stick Duo's need an adapter, but that still counts as compatible.

Only Memory Stick Duo's fit in the second type, since it's a smaller slot. Regular Memory Sticks are too big. The "Pro" is just to make it fancier because it's higher speed, I think.

We (and other sites) had a couple spammers from them so that site's name is sita non grata from now on. We do not encourage our members to do business with companies that steal advertising as they probaby are ethically challenged in other areas as well.
