The guy was wondering what was so special about them so I just said they were a very high quality media. He said I was lucky I got there when I did as if the price had changed they wouldn't have let me get them for 20$. Awesome timing I guess, very good boxing day/week overall for me :)

I'm not 100% sure, you could call first and ask or you could sweet talk some nice CSR there into giving you the price from yesterday. I would maybe call first if its a long drive from where you are.

Hey Mike how did you manage to even carry all those out the door? Was it a group effort? 25, that's insane.
I only got two, now I feel I should have got more.

I just came back from the Bestbuy at Downsview in Toronto, and they were all sold out of the fuji's...damn I wanted to get more...Oh well, I did grab a 250gb WD for $129AR, so they trip wasn't a total loss. Pretty good deal, cause the cost price for Bestbuy on those drives is 185.80 (I looked it up on their computer)

If anyone else is interested, they still have loads of 160's and 250's sitting around.

I just checked Bestbuy.ca a few minutes ago and somehow 2 spindles of the + discs were available. I quickly grabbed one, finished checking out and then tried getting the second. I was nearly through the checkout procedure for the second one when it told me that it was out of stock. Just a notice that it's possible that more may be up for grabs on the site later tonight.

I would say those ones were from cancelled orders, not a restock. I cancelled one of mine earlier so someone could try to grab it but no luck :(

I was considering that, but then how do you count multiple spindle purchases by the same person? Wait, ahh, I guess I could have made different options for 1, 2 ,3, etc. Oh well.

I think the count is currently at 22 btw.
