Cheap USB zip drive for $55 or $15?
I got this from anandtech bbs, sears has a usb zip drive (the imac blue one) for $55 which is a great deal, however, you can try pricematching it at staples, office depot, or office max whatever, and get it for ~$15 [img]/forum/smile.gif[/img] I would buy the one from sears first, then ask office max if they have the philips dvd kit for $49; and maybe you will make them feel sorry for you and pricematch the zip drive? Anyway please don't delete this, i think this is a good deal to follow up for those that didn't get anything from Value America. Please, all i ask is that you people don't start hawking that zip drive to everyone for $100.
Delete it? not a chance. [img]/forum/smile.gif[/img]
I have mine on backorder through Sears. $58 is right up my alley. Unfortuantely, my local OD will call Sears to verify price and stock status before pricematching so I know I won't ever see a $15 USB Zip in my area. Good luck to the rest of you.
any one want to buy a usb zip drize for $100???? [img]/forum/smile.gif[/img]
by the way I hate office max, I went to get the $49 dvd deal, and all they had left was the display model, I told them I would take it and I then saw the guy going to the back to get it telling his coworker buddy about the great deal I was getting. After about ten minutes he came out and said he couldn't find it, so I said ok and went next door to circuit city to look around. While coming back out to my car I saw the same guy from office max carrying what looked like the dvd out to his car. i wonder how many people they do this to.
The people at the office stores do it all the time. I called OD and asked if they had any usb zip drives left, they had 2. So i told them to hold em for me and I would be right down to pick em up and that I wanted a pricematch from sears for $54.99 and they said no problem. Well when I got there they could only find 1 and the guy that put them on hold for me was conveniently on break. I told the manager Id wait for him to take his break so I could find out what was up with my order. Well I waited for over 20 mins but the manager couldnt find the guy(yeah right). So I said fine gimme the one drive. The very next day I went back in and guess what, there was 2 more drives in stock. I asked one of the salesmen bout them and he said it was a great deal and that he had just got one the night before. Then I noticed his name tag, it was the same guy that put the stuff on hold for me. Needless to say I was pissed. Not only did OD or the sales rep lie to me but the sears sale was over so I couldnt get the other 2 drives [img]/forum/frown.gif[/img] [img]/forum/frown.gif[/img]. I will never ever call ahead again thats for sure
