    First off, I'd like to say that camera and electronics stores in Boulder, CO SUCK
    That off ym chest, at Circuit City, I just bought a Sandisk UltraII SD card. This card comes with a flip-down USB plug and one without. In the digital memory section, there were only the ones with the USB thing on display and the Price/product description said they were $67! There were 5-6 all on this rack, and like I said, no other SanDisk UltraII 1GB SD cards on the rack.

    When I go up to pay, it rings in a $85! The USB card has an extra 'P' in the code that is not on the price's code. The difference of ocurse is the USB flip-down feature, BUT the descriptions in the computer showed no difference. After about 15 mins, They found the ONE non-USB version they had in stock and would not sell the other card to me at the price it was shown under.

    I decided to get the USB version (the cost of a dedicated reader would be close to this, and would be a fair bit larger). While only $17, I feel cheated.

    Is there anything I can/should do about this? I'd like to stress that all of the USB versions were under the lower price on the floor and the description on the price tag did not indicate any difference.

    I work in retail, and honestly, you can complain but no one will really care.

    I guess the best you can hope for is to get it for the display price, otherwise take your money somewhere else, if possible.
