Default Best Deal For Sansa Fuze?

I'm in deep trouble since my Samsung S5 died on me(sad story =( but stupid )
ive been looking around and i decided im gonna go for the fuze. Now i just need help, where and how much is the cheapest place to get a fuze? I really don't care if it's from ebay or whatever or the capacity since i will be extending it with a 16gb Micro sdhc in the near future.

thx in advance and my S5 broke because it went in water........

As long as you didn't try turning on the Samsung S5 after it got wet, if properly dried it may work again, there are various threads about drying a player around the forums. I've been able to rescue the wife's phone and the kids gear various times, with a little luck and proper drying. As far as best deals, try googling, always works for me

We get a number of international visitors here. EG I live in Canada. I assume that you live in the USA. Perhaps you will get a good answer if you provide a rough location.

Does Circuit City have the Fuze during their closing sale?

Google'ing up best deals shouldn't be an issue in LA, I've seen good deals on amazon, buy.com, etc... plus a lot of B & M stores carry them, BestBuy, Circuit City, Walmart ...

don't bother with circuit city deals. they are terrible even with their liquidation sales.

i don't think there are any deals at the moment. Since most stores are selling it at around the same price

Don't ever turn on anything electronic after it's doused in water, it will only fry it. Take it apart as much as you can, get out all the water and let it dry naturally for a week or two. You can also very caryfully use a hair dryer, to speed the process, but it still needs to sit in a warm dry place for a week or more. I just leave the item in my car and it dries out over two weeks.

Oh......That would've been so helpful because i dropped a couple of electronics in water and i just assumed that it would either work or never work again.

anyway, what's the average price of an 8gb fuze?
i saw one on ebay for $60 but with my coupon $56.17 =)
is that cheap?

Florida, you lucky so-and-so. Here it would be a frozen electronic-sicle.
