canon powershot A480s refurbished, $73 at best buy

Red and blue are available and shipping and tax raise the total for two to $173. Pickup at local Best Buys was not available - that option must apply only to stocked items.

This camera model is on the CHDK list and the SDM list. See the glossary thread in the Hardware forum if you are not familiar with these terms.

The Canon online store says it has the same refurbished cameras, in an additional color or two (silver and something else, I think) for $70, but I got conflicting messages when adding them to the shopping cart (it worked once, but thereafter said the item was no longer in stock and not backordered) and then I was never able to check out - got a virtually blank screen when looking at the shopping cart.

I believe Daniel has said that in his experience refurbs have worked as well as new.
