Thats pretty insane. That stuff just keeps getting lower and lower in price.

And I thought $38.88CAD for 512MB (locally) was a steal of a deal

Oh I know Just in comparison, $3, yikes.

Before it was 38.88, it was $45, and I thought it bottomed out in price, so I got 1GB of it

I've gotten rebates back in the past usually within 3 weeks. And people will cash one for $30 unlike the $5 ones
