Daily deal – 8GB SDHC memory card for $12.49

Good morning readers! If you are reading this, you clearly made it through New Years Eve without too much damage. I’ll post quietly just in case your head isn’t quite with us yet. First of all, a very happy New Year to you all!

My daily deal for today is for an 8GB SD memory card from Newegg. 8GB is enough for about 3000 photos on most cameras, and the card is suitable for high speed transfers, which is perfect if your camera can shoot HD video.

The card is on sale for just $12.49, and ships for free. Memory cards are the one thing that did not go up (and down again) in price in 2008, and the price of these 8GB cards has plummeted in the past 12 months. My guess is that this spot next year will be advertising cheap 32GB cards.

Before you click “purchase”, please be sure to check whether your camera (or other device) is compatible with the new SDHC format. Virtually all cameras made in 2008 will be fine, but it pays to be sure, as not everything will be capable of working with this card.

Daily deal – 8GB SD memory card for $9.99 shipped!

A very good morning to you! I’m posting my Gadling daily deal a little earlier today because at 8am (PDT), Newegg will start selling their “shell shocker” deal. This deal is for an 8GB SDHC memory card.

The card usually retails for around $20, but for just one day, and until they run out of inventory, it will be on sale for just $9.99. Newegg even pays for the shipping. The card is “class 6”, which means it is the fastest generation SD card on the market, making it perfect for a digital camera.

Make no mistake, this deal will sell out quite quickly, so don’t wait too long to order it. The deal can be found here, but until 8am PDT, you’ll be redirected to a page telling you to be patient!

A quick word of warning; SDHC cards are not regular SD cards, and your camera or other device will have to support the SDHC standard. If you purchased your camera in the past year, then you’ll probably be ok, but please check your user manual before placing an order for a card that might not work.
