yeah, but it's offset by the media prices (@#$%^%& music levy).

Yeah, you can still get deals like that here too, but they don't happen THAT often, because they are obviously below cost. Remember, the raw manufacturing cost of a CD-R is approx $0.05 USD, and it changes hands several times before it reaches you.

However, I've now gotten to the point where I only buy about one tenth of the media I use, so I don't care about price so much anymore :wink: Now I'm more concerned with finding the time to use it!! LOL!

Every couple of of weeks they go on sale here and if they don't I just wait it out until I "will" the stores to lower their prices!!! :D
Dolphinius,I'm sure with who you know you probably get pretty good deals also.I know no-one except sale papers.
Got some Ri-data cd-r's a few days ago for free(100 pack)at officemax.Are Ri-data's OK?
Friend of mine got 2-100 pack maxells about 2 months ago from them for nothin' also.I found that Officemax is the place to go for cd-r media.

Ridata depends a lot of what grade it is. It's pretty hard to know what grade it is unless you have access to the original packaging it was shipped in to the distributor.
