It's $50 until you enter the code which reduces it to $0 (+$5 shipping).

I ordered one out of peer pressure but honestly I don't know if this thing is worth the $5.25 I paid for tax and shipping. I think we're doing the company a favor by taking it off their hands. Reviews are terrible and honestly it looks like piece of shlt.

Got my order in. I plan to install the universal driver and use it for my emulators. I tried to order a second one a few minutes later (from a different IP no less) but it said the promotion was expired.

Every review I've read from a website has been positive.

I ordered it tonight, too! I think I got it in at like 7 or so. I don't remember. Regardless, I played with this at the Verizon store and was going to buy it with my employee discount for $36. I'm glad I waited!

Supposedly, mine has already shipped. I'm a little surprised (and dubious)...
