I never heard anything from 1thing so I don't know if his deal idea ever went anywhere. I did snag one of the 2012 exp date RCIRs from fdsman though and that was uncomplicated. The ebay seller heartofmypeople sells current issue RCIRs one at a time - seems to end up at about $60 each shipped to the US from Germany. Not sure if he'd ever sell a few together and discount shipping, but it can't hurt to ask.

There seems to be lots on ebay.fr all the time. Looking now and there's a seller doing buy-it-now for 6 euros each, but shipping is another 31. Each.

cablemonkey, I think you've just doomed me :twisted:

I hadn't really done much searching on international eBay sites in the last few years, but looking around tonight I'm finding a surprising number of sellers that ship internationally for fairly reasonable prices. I may have to start expanding my searches to ebay.fr, ebay.de, ebay.co.uk, ebay.es, etc... :mrgreen:

Next time before you pay an arm and a leg for shipping, send me a hint and we`ll see what we can do for you!! :shock:
With (German) DHL we can send 20kg for "just" ~€70 :wink:
