Cheap HDMI cables locally?

Setting up a new home theater and forgot to grab 2 more HDMI cables when I made my monoprice order... Don't want to wait another week for them to show up, but don't want to pay an assload for a silly cable... anywhere locally that sells them for any remotely reasonable price?

Tanner Electronics. Maybe Altex but I think Tanner would be cheaper.

Forgot about tanner.. they're on my way home... good call

if they don't have them, best buy has house brand 3'ers for $8.99 and i'd actually rather pay $2 more a cable not to have 9 feet of cable (twice) laying around back there...

X3! I got a 50' HDMI for $20 if I remember correctly from them. Not local, but worth the wait.

That's where i got my subwoofer cable and in-wall speaker cable... but like my original post said, i forgot to add these to that order, so was looking for something local since I didn't want to wait a week to get my system all hooked up.. the receiver and speakers are sitting on my floor waiting for me to get home

not that it matters now since you already bought them, but I purchased a 3 pack of 6 foot HDMI cables at Frys for like 12 bucks. I dont get into all that triple gold oxygen free yada yada bullshit...digital is digital...it either works or it doesnt.

Kinda like Monster Cable selling their speaker wire for $9k per foot because it is oxygen free,and triple gold plated with the pussy juice of a 19yr old virgin.

I got the same ones at fry's..3 pack for $12..does what i need...
