Get a 4GB Eye-Fi Explore Video SD card for $29.99

That's one of the lowest prices I've seen for this wireless memory card, which offers both geotagging and a year of AT&T hotspot access. Sellout risk: high!

The 4GB Eye-Fi Explore Video typically sells for $100, but today it's on sale for $30.

I continue to be fan of Eye-Fi memory cards, which wirelessly beam photos from your digital camera to your PC and/or an online service like Flickr or Facebook.

I'm not, however, a fan of their high prices. Dropping a hundred bucks on a 4GB SD card--even one with built-in Wi-Fi--is not my idea of a good deal.

Here's a better one: Today only, Best Buy outlet store Cowboom has the 4GB Eye-Fi Explore Video SD card for $29.99, plus $5 for shipping. (You may also be on the hook for sales tax.) This same card lists for $99.99 on Eye-Fi's own site.

This may sell out very quickly, folks. Update: And, sure enough, it did.

Not familiar with Eye-Fi? It's a standard-size SDHC memory card (meaning it's compatible with most cameras) with a built-in Wi-Fi radio.

When it's in range of your home network and your camera is on, the card automatically transfers photos to your PC--a major convenience, in my humble opinion.

Alternately, it can upload photos to the online service of your choice: Facebook, Flickr, Snapfish, Photobucket, and about two dozen others. Videos shown with your camera can be directed straight to YouTube and other video-friendly destinations.

The Explore version includes one year of access to AT&T Wi-Fi hotspots, which should make for easier uploading while you're out and about. It also offers unlimited geotagging.

In other words, it's one of the more advanced versions of Eye-Fi's previous-generation cards. Although 30 bucks is still mighty pricey for just 4GB of SD storage, it's a pretty sweet deal for Eye-Fi SD storage.

Bonus deal: Also today only, Woot has a Memorex MVBD2535 Blu-ray player for $89.99, plus $5 for shipping. It's new, not refurbished, and it features 802.11n Wi-Fi and support for Netflix, Pandora, and Blockbuster streaming.
