[US deal] NVIDIA SHIELD TV Pro Stand

Deal Link:
Price:
$4.99 US
Retailer:
newegg.com
If you've purchased a NVIDIA SHIELD recently and want to put it vertically this topic might be right for you.
Was looking for a stand and found that it is quite expensive.
$34.97 & amazon.ca and even more expensive at other retailers.
Eventually, found that newegg.com is clearing it out for $4.99 with a free US shipping.
The stand is well reviewed everywhere function wise, so I believe it's a good investment if you can pick it up across the border.

Apparently new Shield is coming soonish, might mean Canadian retailers will have price cuts for accessories

Wondering what people are downvoting this thread for.
The discount is around 70-80%, but US only.
Just for not being able to get it shipped to Canada?
It's clearly posted as [US deal] in the title.

Frankly, this kills all the motivation to post any deals here.

Thanks Op, this is a good find! Buddy and I wanted to buy it when we got our shields, but was discouraged from the high price for a chunk of plastic! Ordered 2!

Fair statement. However to be fair to those downvotes though, one of the reason is "unable to get the deal". It's not rated solely on price. (I upvoted)

Don't get discouraged!

The problem is it also interferes with deal discovery for others, I don't even have a shield and it's pretty obvious this deal is good, no genuine reason to downvote

Don't think so, the newer shield is smaller in size.

It's metal, not plastic.

Using the same logic people should downvote all deals not available to them locally or online, like Costco West or GTA only. Many times you can see deals available in a single store only.
Another example is a deal for Costco members or teachers.
I don't think the intention of the "unable to get the deal" option relates to this case.

Or if an item just happens to be out of stock at the particular store that they went to. "Unable to get the deal" should mean there's an issue with the deal itself (e.g. a deal posted as available to all, but actually only available to people who got the email, or a deal that was based on negotiating) - not "I could not summon the item to me with a single mouse click".

This is a great deal... if I lived in the United States.

When you downvote, there are 5 options. This IS a great price! It's not a bad product or service. NewEgg is a good company. The 4th option is "Unable to get the deal" which in this case, is true for many Canadians as this is an American deal.

With that being said, I'm not sure why people here are complaining about the downvoting and that RFD members are voting "Unable to get the deal" because it's true. WORD!
Yes, I'd like to price match RedFlagDeals please - Ken Adams

Vocal downvoters seem like difficult people, case in point above. Unsurprisingly, many are also Anti-American.

Regarding this deal, CrossBorderPickups is a thing, and it's reasonably priced if you can batch that shipment with other shipments (i.e. US orders) to the Niagara, NY reshipper location.
