Funny thing about the BB one is that *online* they will only allow you to purchase a single drive. Go to the store and you can stock up on as many as you want! I picked up 5 of them and still have another waiting for me in ship to store!

FWIW, the stick at Best Buy is the Attache, whereas the Staples item is the Attache 2...perhaps the 2 is faster, making it worth the extra buck?

does anyone have experience with Staples' "reserve" system? I guess I'll report back in a few hours, don't want to miss out

The PNY - Attaché 16GB USB 2.0 from BB has the plastic tip instead of a metallic one. I have used mine for a few days now and can already see some of the plastic being worn away.
The Staples still has the metallic one. Definately worth an extra $ IMHO.
BB sale is over anyways...

Previous thread from a day earlier here, which probably shouldn't have been expired.
I picked up a couple of these at Staples today and used an old one-time check-in coupon for 25% off any one USB key/drive (according to my receipt, I saved an additional $1.75, yay!). While there were some of this same drive model and size on the shelf, they were priced at around $30. According to a mid-level manager who I asked about them (since they showed up as in stock at this particular location), these apparently have "promotional SKUs" and he had just brought them out of the back and they were sitting behind the cashier counter in a shopping basket physically inaccessible and not visible to customers for some reason.

Went in for one, the customer service guy also had them behind the counter.. but still rang up at $30. The guy said he hadn't heard of any deals like that since Black Friday. Oh well..

Are the $7 promo ones not available anymore or is this deal dead everywhere?
