Where To Purchase Smart Cover For Lowest Price?

I've been looking online where to purchase a Smart Cover for the lowest price, figuring (as well) that the community would know of places to snag one of these babies for a low price.

Obviously, Apple sells them for $39.
Amazon seems to have them (used) for as low as $21.
eBay has them for under $10, but shipping arrival dates are over a month away. Normally I would shutter away from purchasing fake goods from China over eBay but upon my recent trip to China I noticed the impeccable build quality in their fake products. In Beijing, a week ago, I purchased Dr. Dre Beats (3 of them) for $15 each and they look and feel just like the real thing.

My thing is, I'm currently in NY while home base for me is L.A. and want the Smart Cover to arrive at my L.A. home before I do, so I can simply open up the delivery boxes consisting on my iPad 2 (), Smart Cover, Back Protector and Carrying Messenger Bag.

But I digress (as usual); Where do I purchase a Smart Cover for the Lowest Price?

I managed to get a black leather one for the price of the poly one at Walmart. Try there. Mis-priced all the time.

I got a leather one on eBay for $40 w/ free shipping. That's probably your best bet unless you get lucky in a store.

If you want to go the b&m route, try best buy. they sometimes have the open box returns they'll sell for like 20% off

I just walked into a Best Buy and Target with no luck.

Guess my search continues.

Either way, i'll purchase a Smart Cover online now .. or wait till I'm back in L.A. and purchase a Smart Cover @ regular price...
