    Shameless plug for Cheap Chips

    I'm sure if its not approved, I'm sure it will be removed if its not, so apology if this is the wrong thing to do. But I just want to put in a plug for Cheap Chips. The service a couple of weeks ago, was payment at 1:00pm and it was in my hands by 11:00 am the next day. Prices was also the best that I could find. Went to the store friday and the service and price was just as good. thanks.

    Cheap Chips are a site advertiser (and owned my a friend of mine here in Tasmania). So feedback is good, but remember to use the ads on AP to click through and order. AP gets commission when you do, which helps keep AP online and free for members.

    www.cheapchips.com.au


    So either click the ad when it appears on the AP page, or click our AP sponsors link at the top and bottom of every AP page (between the banner ads), to get to the site sponsors, and click to them from there.

    I might as well add my $0.02 as well for them.

    Clicked through here on Thursday morning and ordered a couple of CF cards and there was a minor glitch with the site when I went to print the receipt so I rang Rohan when the store opened and he assured me that the order had gone through and said that I would receive them Friday without him knowing that we are "officially outside" the Australia Post express delivery area. They arrived here today, perfect service from Cheap Chips, just a pity Australia Post can't do better though.

    Just did a purchase of a 16gb CF card through Cheap Chips. Fast delivery and they are very friendly and helpful to talk to. A+++

    I've found computer swap meets cheaper than some of their CF cards. But credit to any online store with fast delivery.

    Thanks for the tip guys. I ordered from them after reading about their service here when my usual supplier couldn't supply.
    I must say they have great service. My 32Gb card arrived in less than 16 hours after ordering. Fantastic.

    I ordered a card over Easter weekend, and received it on the Wednesday afterwards - I also like getting emails from online stores about when my order has been shipped too - makes the process that a lot less daunting
