Default Radio Shack Conductive Paint Pen $6.49 Instore

Visited the local Radio Shack store in Auburn MA, didn't expect to find this:

http://www.radioshack.com/product/index...uctive&kw=conductive&parentPage=search

$12.31 shipped to Auburn MA on website (BLEH!)
$6.49 instore + tax (YEAH!)

However, the guy said it was on clearance in their store because they're a 'display store' or somesuch and not a parts store...so as I said in the subject line, YMMV.

Regards,

SB

"I'm pretty sure thats the normal price."

-Well, there's a sticker underneath that sez $12.99, so at that store at least it was once more expensive, anyway. True, it was interesting seeing the $6.49 price at the website...but the shipping costs render that moot.

It sure is funny when ordering small items online and you get shipping charges for more than the product itself costs.

YMMV, but it usually means 'your mileage may vary,' i.e, you may not get the same results.

Sounds like a pretty cool product and depending on how long it lasts I'd pay full price for it.

It's worth it at $6.50 or $12 if you have a 7900GT. Volt-modding unlocks HUGE speed increases in 7900GT's!

Package states 12 months after first use and 24 months if unopened. How we can tell when it was manufactured is beyond me, so I don't know how anyone can calculate the 24 months thing.
