Future Shop Canada 7 Days of Web Deals – Day 7 – Good Deal at Last!


Future Shop Canada

Just when I had lost all hope in Future Shop’s marketing team, they come up with a pretty decent deal on the last days of deals. Today’s deal is the Kingston 1GB Data Traveler USB Flash Drive (DTI-1GBCR) for $39.99 $12.99.

Pros:

– $12.99 is a good price for a 1GB USB flash drive.
– This is a high quality and reliable device. When it comes to storing data this is one of the most important features to look for. You don’t want to store a presentation on the device to find that it has malfunctioned right before you start your presentation!
– 1GB is large enough to store a bunch of mp3s or even a movie file 🙂

Cons:

– Future Shop now charges shipping. Make sure the shipping isn’t too large to ruin the deal. Shouldn’t be a problem for most provinces.
– It’s not a very fast device. This shouldn’t be a problem for the regular user. Unless your time is ultra-precious (but then you shouldn’t be reading this in the first place ;-)), don’t worry about it.
– Not very easy to attach to your key chain (small slot).
– The white looks ugly.
– Cover may get lost if you don’t handle it with care.

All the cons are really minor and I’m personally buying one of these.

    One more con: This is not US3 enabled.

    I’ll just echo that those cons are VERY minor. I’ve had one of these for almost a year and have never had any problems with it. I use it on both macs and pcs (transferring files back and forth) with absolutely no problem.

    I’ve got one of these too.. thing works awesome… a bit slow but oh well. The key is to format as soon as you get it cause for some reason it starts off with a small amount of free space.

    They’re all sold out but ncix.com has the 2gb for around $25 so you get a good deal there too… actually I reccoment checking their site at about 9:00pm on Wednesday nights… every week they have a few amazing deals

    I bought 2, I did the store pick up, what I didn’t notice until a bit too late, they charge me 25.98 twice, for almost $60 for two after taxes. 25.98 was the cost for both…

    Now I gotta go back with all the bills, and print out of the original sale from online, which shows they are 12.99 each…

    A bit of a hassle, but I have some business in the area tomorrow, so I guess that’s ok.

    They say there is no such thing as a free lunch, and the sale had to be too good, the extra time and gas, leaves me not really saving any money.

    Probably this comment is too late to be very helpful, but two notes on this deal:

    – I don’t consider US3 a “positive” thing; I’ve seen more than one instance where it’s caused problems. For me, I don’t need it, it’s superfluous.

    – Canada Computers has the Kingmax ‘Super Stick’ 1GB for $12.99:

    It’s super tiny, check the pic at the site. It’s not extremely fast, but it works fine so far, and it’s convenient to be able to just slip it into my wallet. The 2GB is $21.99.
