Welcome back to the SmartCanucks Scavenger Hunt — our weekly challenge to our readers to find the lowest price on a specific item! In our first week we were looking for the lowest price on a floor lamp. The lowest price (although unconfirmed) comes to us from meisagirl who found “a nice one, silver with a shade that can be an up or down shade for $7.99” at XSCargo. Thanks meisagirl!
For week 2, we’re going to look for something a little more specific. This week we’re going to look for the lowest price on something almost all of us could use — a 2GB SD Card. As always, we’re going to stick with retailers, so no eBay or freecycle-type deals. It can be any brand, so long as it’s a 2GB SD Card.
That’s it, dealketeers! Happy hunting!
$5.56 at this site: http://www.bestdirect.ca/products/115628/Kingston/SD_2GBCR/

2G SD Card for $6.99 at Factory Direct
Future Shop has one online for $9.95. It’s a PNY 2GB Secure Digital Card.
Tigerdirect has a Transend 2gb SD card for $6.99.
Can’t say if their retail stores would carry it…but that is pretty cheap haha.
2G SD Card for $6.99 at Factory Direct
What the hell nothing is posting
I need one of these! Bring on the deals!
Walmart has them from $9.00 to $28.00..they usually come on sale though there..I picked mine up for just under $20.00 for a four pack…but you would have to wait for the sale.
sorry that was $9.00 to $18.00
Superstore is advertising two 2gig SD Cards of the president choice brand (who knew that they made sd cards too) for $14.99 to bad you didn’t need them before christmas as they were a 2 pack of 2 gig SD Cards Kingston for $8.99
$4.99 at newegg.ca
for Transcend 2GB Secure Digital (SD) Flash Card Model TS2GSDC
If we are talking any place that ships to Canada.
I found a store on amazon.com call Starmicro Access Inc selling them for 1.74USD XE.com converts that to 2.07CAD
If we’re talking from Canadian stores only.
PCVonline has a micro one that comes with an SD adapter for 4.95CAD
When in doubt, I turn to my favourite electronics retailer.
A-Data Turbo Series SD 150X Secure Digital Flash Memory Card 2GB
Everyday Low Price: $4.99
best buy price is 2xpny 2 gb for 15.99
$4.75 at this site:
Okay, for the uninitiated…how can the price range from $4.95 to $25.00 for the same product….what sets them apart??
there are various classes of them–some are faster than others. also the ‘better/well known’ brands are usually a bit more pricey. i saw an 8GB one at bestbuy during boxing week.. it was 10 or 15$ if i recall.
Thanks for the explanation hm! Say for example… if I were looking for a fast 2gb SD card… which one would I get? They all look the same in the store and prices are all over the place!
Wow, I didnt know they sold 2 GB SD cards for less than $20!!! And I thought the one in the Shopper’s flyer for this week @ $14.99 was a hot deal! 🙂
2 for $15 at Fortinos
PC brand 2 GB SD Card
2 for 15 at Super store
If you look at this one it tells you the speed and number of times the card can be inserted and removed before it is likely to fail
30x and 10,000 insertions
Foe the one I linked above
has all of their various cards at different speeds
http://www.transcendusa.com/Products/ModDetail.asp?ModNo=72&LangNo=0&Func1No=1&Func2No=13 for example is 80x compared to 30X in the first link
Ok, who can find the most expensive 2gb sd card?
Hahaha…I was thinking the exact same thing.
Whenever I am looking for an electronics deal, I always check local sales flyers, websites such as ncix.com, newegg.ca, shoprbc.com and then bring it into Best Buy or similar shop that has a “match it, plus 10% of the difference” policy for a matching product. Bought myself a 4GB Micro SDHC for $18 ($20 elsewhere, $40 for that particular brand at Bestbuy), and a D-Link 802.11N wireless router for $48 recently ($50 elsewhere, $70 at bestbuy). May only be $4 saved, but also meant one place to goto, rather than 2, and no hassle…
RJ – I bought a 4GB for $14.00 @ Futurshop
now they have 2 for $20 deal – http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/proddetail.asp?logon=&langid=EN&sku_id=0665000FS10109023&catid=25942
I think you should get the 16 gb on for daily deals at dell for 29.99
16gb! Is awesome!http://accessories.dell.com/sna/products/Accessories/productdetail.aspx?c=ca&l=en&s=bsd&cs=cabsdt1&sku=A1651480
I found a 2gb disk for $4.45 @ this address http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820211347
i get all my memory card for mere pennies on ebay.ca look for micro or mini cards that come with adaptors too they work perfect and normally can find bigger ones cheaper. the last one i bought after shipping was 1.41 for a 2G and if you do it properly you get points on mypoints or cashback on smartcanucsk too.
