The other day, as part of a bonus deal, I wondered aloud how long it would be before 32GB flash drives dipped below $10.
Not long, apparently. While supplies last, TigerDirect has the Patriot PSF32GFXUSB Xporter Flex 32GB Flash Drive for $9.97 shipped. That's your post-rebate price (PDF); it'll cost you $19.97 to get out the door.
Assuming you don't have a deep-seated hatred of rebates (many people do), that's an incredibly low price. It was scarcely six months ago that I was crowing about piddly 8GB drives for under $10.
The PSF32GFXUSB -- er, I think I'll just call it the Xporter -- is an ultra-small, keychain-friendly drive, measuring a mere 1.5 inches long. And yet it holds a whopping 32GB, which is enough to house all kinds of things: an entire music or photo library, a full backup of all your data, or even a complete USB-bootable Linux operating system (along with all your stuff).
The warranty is perhaps a bit short at two years, but by then I suspect we'll all have Bluetooth-enabled terabyte chips embedded in our skulls. (Talk about mobile storage!)
To get the rebate, you must purchase the drive before June 30 -- but don't be surprised if it sells out before June 28 (tomorrow).
Bonus deal: Ending today, Newegg has the Haier L39B2180 39-inch LCD HDTV for $289.99 shipped. That's after applying coupon code HAIERTV50 at checkout. This is a 1080p TV with three HDMI inputs and glowing reviews from users.
Bonus deal No. 2: Are you an iTunes user? Head to StackSocial, where you can get TuneUp Media's TuneUp Bundle (Win/Mac) for $30. Normally $50, this lifetime license includes an iTunes library cleaner, de-duper, cover-art finder/fixer, and more.
