SmartCanucks Scavenger Hunt: Week 2

Community Features


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!

    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.

  9. Mary says:

    If we are talking any place that ships to Canada.
    I found a store on call Starmicro Access Inc selling them for 1.74USD 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

  14. tina says:

    best buy price is 2xpny 2 gb for 15.99

  15. baggypants says:

    Okay, for the uninitiated…how can the price range from $4.95 to $25.00 for the same product….what sets them apart??

  16. hm says:

    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.

  17. Candy says:

    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!

  18. Lurker-galore says:

    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! 🙂

  19. Manish says:

    2 for $15 at Fortinos
    PC brand 2 GB SD Card

  20. 2 for 15 at Super store

  21. FallenPixels says:

    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 for example is 80x compared to 30X in the first link

  22. contact_markm says:

    Ok, who can find the most expensive 2gb sd card?

  23. Glen says:

    Hahaha…I was thinking the exact same thing.

    $49.95 Wooohooo!

  24. RJ says:

    Whenever I am looking for an electronics deal, I always check local sales flyers, websites such as,, 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…

  25. FunkyMunky says:

    RJ – I bought a 4GB for $14.00 @ Futurshop
    now they have 2 for $20 deal –

  26. Sally says:

    I think you should get the 16 gb on for daily deals at dell for 29.99

    16gb! Is awesome!

  27. dj6sav says:

    i get all my memory card for mere pennies on 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.
