how over priced are jessops and other high street stores?!

I'm off to spain on thursday, and wanted a bigger memory card for my camera. I've bought a 2gb card off amazon, cost me 18 summit. But it's not here yet. So i thought.. go into town and see how much they cost, then if its not here by thursday, i can go buy one locally.

Jessops didn't have any 2gb cards, but they had a 1gb card i could have for about 40.

Went to PC world, biggest card they had was a 512mb for about 50. Maplin didn't have any fuji XD cards.

what a bloody rip off!

got 30% off my cam, which i have to admit totally suprised me as i didnt think they'd go for it, but i suppose if you don't ask you don't get

as for cards, i'm holding off now in the hope that my visit to hong kong will yield some really cheap ones, they all seem to come from around there anyway
