FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't whether I got it free or NOT!

Get'em While their Hot!

Digital Photo Cards

My camera and my digital photo frame both use SD (secure digital) memory cards. My first camera came with a whopping big 16 mb card. Since then I have upgraded cameras and cards several times. Currently I am using a 2GB card that rates at 938 photos at the best quality. I doubt that I will be shooting more photos than that at any one time. The older, smaller cards got relegated to my backup camera and I carry a spare with my main camera. Another use is to back up files from my laptop to the SD cards. 256mb can hold lots & lots of documents. Since I have flash card readers on most of my computers and they are built into my laptop it is simplicity itself to do the backup. I also have three to rotate photos through my digital photo frame.

Now the money saving part, Radio Shack has the 256MB SanDisk® 256MB Secure Digital™ Memory Card Model: SDSDB-256-768 Catalog #: 44-1905 for $5.99. Yup, less than 6 bucks. My guess is that when the inventory is gone, it will be gone for good since 1GB cards are normally in the $20.00 category. I got a 2gb SD card for $12.00 including freight due to a rebate and sale. So the little cards are going away. But keep in mind the little card is 256MB! Remember the 1.44MB floppy drive. There is a world of use for these little cards and I would suggest you run out and avail yourself of the deal before it disappears.
