[Web4lib] Bulk USB Sticks...

We had been getting jump drives from geeks.com, but they got too expensive
to continue to retail. Then we found this site with a terrific price point
(S+H was minimal). We've been reselling 2 giggers for $9 for about a year
now. When we started, we'd get people come in off the street to buy jump

Hi Kern,
When my boss was looking, I suggested he do a Google Shopping search, and
either a browse or search on Pricewatch.com; it now seems to be our defacto
pattern when searching to buy. Using both sites in tandem has allowed us to
find very good deals on our USB sticks. When we started selling, we offered
512MB, then 1GB. The typical size we offer now is 2GB, but due to
fluctuations in cost and sales, we have sometimes thought of offering 4GB
sticks. Prices are typically anywhere between $7-12 each depending on
shipping and handling. Ironically, we often have better prices than our
local Walmart.
Pricewatch found 2GB Memorex $7.98 (before S&H/tax)
Google found 2GB Kingston $6.35 (before S&H -- search term "2GB USB")
I hope this helps.

Hi Everyone,

We're looking to purchase USB sticks to sell to patrons at cost.  I
think small capacity would be fine.  Does anyone have experience with
this?  What size(s) do you purchase/offer?  Where to you buy from?  What
do you charge?
