Get three HDMI cables for 10 bucks shipped

Don't get suckered into buying overpriced cables when these cheapies are just as good. You don't really need to pay $30, $50, or even $80 for a single 6-footer at a big-box store.

Get three, three, three HDMI cables for less than the price of one. SuperMediaStore

Hello, and welcome to another edition of How Not to Get Ripped Off When You Buy Cables. See, fancy electronics like Blu-ray Disc players, game consoles, and high-definition camcorders need HDMI cables to connect to your HDTV. But do you really need to pay $30, $50, or even $80 for a single 6-footer?

Those are the going rates at your average big-box store (as well as places like Radio Shack), but SuperMediaStore has three 6-foot HDMI cables for $9.97 shipped.

If you're concerned that these ubercheap cables won't be as good as their heavily packaged retail counterparts, don't be: there's ample scientific and anecdotal evidence that dirt-cheap generics perform just as well.

To get the SuperMediaStore deal, head to the site, add three of the cables to your shopping cart, then use code EL50P to bring the price down to $9.97. Note that this code expires Thursday, so don't wait!
