your free is 16.49 to ship to me. not worth the effort- and no they s/h is not free. its 9 bucks plus shipping and handling then a mail in deal for 9 bucks back- meanwhile shipping is still paid.



didn't you notice the "Free*" with the * ? lol. Scroll down and read the fine print.

They were doing this with Power Supply's before.

Radioshack has had similar deals. $30 with a $30 instant rebate.

Mail-In Rebate. Practically, it's not free until you send in a rebate form and get your money back.
