These "deals" annoy me. Here is a link for ebay, 10 for about the same price as one here, and shipping is free.

I bought 8 when I got my HP TouchPad and paid $8 with free shipping. And the Chinese were making a profit on me!!! Now ten for $5.09 and they are still making a profit! I think the Chinese supertankers that go to Venezuela to pick up a load of crude stop on the west coast first to bring these in by the gazillion and Amazon, Staples, Wal-Mart, the Apple Stores, etc. sell them from $5 to $30 for each ONE. I scattered my eight around the house so I did not have to go find one.

Hey. What am I missing here?

@southvalley: This is a pencil stylus not a junk one on ebay. I paid $20 for this in the store. The ones you have linked 2 on ebay don't work.

@jeffyn Hmmm. My TouchPad and my son's iPad sure don't agree with you.

be very careful with those Chinese online stores, many times it takes weeks to get your stuff and it is NOT the same quality. Most of the time, you get what you pay for and it takes forever to get it. I'm all for finding a deal, but not at the expense of quality or long shipping time. I've also heard of shipping under payments that have to be paid before item is delivered or left at house. "If it sounds to good to be true....."
