I already know that HDMI cables can be had for absurdly cheap amounts on the ol' Internet, but let's say I really, really wanted to have one in my hot little hands TODAY and would need to drive to a real store to get it. Where can I find the cheap stuff? Just surfing, it looks like I can't get out for less than $29.99 for a standard 6' cable. I checked Best Buy, Radio Shack and a few office supply stores. (OR: do you think they'd have them in stock but not list them on the websites?)

EDIT: Online-wise, I opted for the "1 cent" (really $4.99) cables at Amazon (The W at Amazon) - I figured it was a risk I could afford to take. I'd still like one TODAY, though.

Honestly, you should try WalMart. I think they've probably got a few HDMI sets and if they do they should have a decent margin on the cables (not the huge mark-ups that you get at Best Buy or the Shack).

Website says $19.94 (walmart.com) but maybe they have something in the store that isn't on the website. I wish I'd thought to check last time I was at Super Target - THEIR website lists one for $14.99 (target.com) which corresponds to this Amazon listing (The W at Amazon)...
