Best place order a usb cable?

Ok these things seem to rank right up there with Monster Cable and a bar of gold. I wasn't aware usb cables were like $30. Anyone reccomend a place to purchase these at a more wallet friendly rate? Or am I just whining and being unreasonable. (no need to answer that one)

Thanks in advance,

If you just want one as an extension cable, you may take a look at getting a hub instead. I purchased a hub at Costco for about $15.

If we're talking about printer style USB cables, Sam's Club sells two packs for $6something.

Thanks, I actually found one for 69 cents at, their shipping is $5 though. I also had someone tell me that they can be found for .99 at those "Dollar Stores" here in California.

I got a two pack (10' and 6') at BJs a couple of weeks back for $6 and some change...I don't know if it was a misprice or not but it went through fine at the checkout....
