My guess is there's not a whole lot of difference between the blade and the glide, as far as the electronics.

FYI there is also the SanDisk Cruzer Glide 32gb for 12.99 http://www.staples.com/SanDisk-Cruzer-Glide-32GB-USB-20-USB-Flash-Drive-Black-Red/product_642408?externalize=certona

I have this one I got last year from radioshack for 7.99 and its been pretty good over the last year. I'm not sure I would even consider something thats all plastic

Just got mine a little while ago. Had to ask for it because it wasn't on the shelves even thought it said In Stock at this store I went to. The manager got it from the back room and brought it to the register for me. Rang up $24.99 but was changed to $9.99 when I showed them the link from staples.com for $9.99.

The cashier isn't going to be the best option... they have a low price guarantee if I remember correctly. Oh, and yea, at one of the stores they did say it wasn't out on the floor as it is not listed on their regular display. Another store had them in a bin in the middle of the store where the manager knew what I was coming in for (went with a friend the second time). So this had worked at two locations for me and I picked up quite a few for xmas gifts.

@danieleg: No luck. The store was out of stock as far as I could tell, and the cashier told me the $9.99 price was online only. Looks like other people on this thread had better luck than me though, maybe you can call ahead.

The 20% off bag thing is legitimate though. Make sure to bring the coupon with you, or show the coupon on your smartphone.

Its been in and out of stock all day. I just ordered mine. Signed up for a new Staples Rewards account to get free shipping. Don't mind not getting the additional 20% off with the brown bag deal just to not have to go to the store.

Yea it's currently out of stock online but it says it available at my local store. Might want to check that out if you have one nearby.

I just got it today. At the store I went to they didn't have it in the rack. One of the employees knew about the deal told me to go to the register and ask them for it, they kept it behind the register. And they rung it up as $25 but I asked about this deal and they changed it to $10. Didn't even ask for a proof of the deal, just changed the price.

That said it not a great drive. Speed is still slow, 6mb/write 11mb/read. the body is all plastic, even the usb shroud. It feels soft and flimsy, But its a great deal for this much storage, especially if you're not planning of putting it through too much abuse.

@jamesm760: The sale starts on Thanksgiving Day. Probably only have like 5 of them per store to drive in customers. I dont participate in Holiday riots so I'll just pass.

This model is not yet rated on newegg, older models have horrible reviews. Is it this cheap for a reason? I guess if it's crap you got what you paid for, and if it's good you got a great deal. I would just wait until black friday or cyber monday and get something better for an extra $6 with 4+ reviews and free shipping. IMO.

@nicbor: Let us know, it's a long way to the store for me.

@danieleg: Looks like the $9.99 is already active (on the staples website at least)... so it should match up with the bag deal over the next couple days. I'm going to try it out tomorrow. Great deal if it works.

The Bag coupon is good 11/24 thru 11/26

The 32 GB Cruz Flash $9.99 is only good 11/28 thru 11/30

$10 for 32 GB is still a good deal,
you just cant get the extra 20% off
