Some good deals at Costco right now.
A stack of 100 blank TDK CDRs is $29.99 at the register, and there’s a $20 rebate from Costco. (Unlike other rebates, Costco processes rebate forms quickly and actually mails the checks.) Ten bucks for a hundred blank CDRs! Incidentally, don’t be confused – these are labeled “Data CDRs,” but they are perfectly good for music CDs as well. To the best of my knowledge, the blanks labeled “Music CDRs” are physically identical, but they’re more expensive because a royalty has been paid to someone or other.
Costco has long had Sylvania monitors. I don’t know a lot about them, but I’ve seen several clients buy them and they’re perfectly happy. The specs are good. A 17″ monitor is $149.99. Even better is a 19″ monitor, $199.99 at the register less a $20 rebate from Costco.
If you’re running Windows XP, there’s a new “Application Compatibility Update” at the Windows Update site. It includes an update for “Need for Speed: Porsche Unleashed,” a perfectly nice car racing game, which I picked up at Costco yesterday for $8.99. Happy spending!
