yep.. they kept warning that the price was going to triple around the end of summer
it just took longer then expected

that being said.. I still buy mine at outpost.. $9.50 for 50 (80 minute, 24x)... and they use to have free next day air..

and if you keep an eye on techbargains.com, you can constantly find deals to get spindles of blanks for free after rebate

with any effort at all.. you should easily get free blanks.. or at worst.. you shouldnt ever pay more then 10-15 dollars for a spindle of 50!

I bought a spindle of 50 cdrws from outpost, and only paid 19.99

Who pays for CD-Rs? I have over 600 sitting in a box and have to stop myself from getting more $24.99/100 with $25 rebate deals. They're taking up too much room! I guess the tax and the stamp to mail in the rebate cost, so I must end up paying about $2/100.

I just got my first writer.

Care to share where you (used to) get your rebate deals from?

Most recently CompUSA, Best Buy, and Staples.

Be sure to check out if it has a label for writing if you need it, sometimes I don't care depending on what they're for. And the best deals are usually on spindles so you need a storage method or a bunch of empty cases or sleeves.

I don't see any free ones around right now. Don't know anything about this one, but here's one to check out:

CompUSA - 24X CD-R Media, 700MB / 80Min, 50 Pack, Spindle for $5

The deals are out there but finding them when youre looking can be a bit difficult. About 2 weeks ago I picked up 4 50 count spindles of KHypermedia CDRs from OfficeMax.......$10 with a $5 mail in rebate. Also, Walmart in my area now has a slim case CD deal, $10 for 50 cases.......nice deal in my opinion, I can burn and case a CD for a whopping 30 cents!

This week at Office Max I bought a 100 disk box (not spindle, in a box with a plastic core) of 24x 700 MB for $24.00.
