    Amazon has it for the same price (they actually had it for $227 and some change the other day) . Amazon is going to start charging sales tax in California on Saturday, so if you live in Cali., order it before Saturday to save the tax.

    purchased at best buy, had them price match it, then bought a protection plan it covers accidental damage. such as running over by lawnmower. :(

    as long as you can bring it in they will cover it(according to the sale guy)

    Don't know about BB but I know that if you're doing mail order RS offers free shipping on orders over $50. Advantages of mail order by saving on sales tax plus the option of returning it locally if you run into problems.

    If Radio Shack has stores in your state then you're going to going to get charged sales tax if you order it online. So unless you just like to wait there's no advantage as opposed to going to the store. Unless you count the gas you save as the advantage..

    I picked mine up from RS for $229 two weeks ago. I think this sale is an ongoing thing. Nothing like instant gratification from the brick and mortar pickup. :)

    Yup! I snagged mine on Sunday. The website SAID the sale was ending that day but I don't think it did? Lol whatever, their deception worked and I totally caved. :p

    I guess one bad thing about going to the store is having the sales person try to sell you $40 worth of cases and screen protectors haha.

    Sorry I wasn't clear, I meant that the free shipping offset the sales tax.

    ha! Exactly! As I was paying I had to run the gauntlet of "Will you need a case/charger/screen protector/ etc" :)

    I picked mine up at RS for the $229, I was going to order from Amazon, but I wanted that day.. The CS there sucks at RS but I did manage to get an Otter Commuter case for it for $6 on clearance.. Not really important but wanted to share lol.
