I call BS on the $99 996XT until someone can state where they are finding these deals and posts pictures of the receipt with the RS item number clearly visible.
That is a great deal! That's why I always go to any Radio Shack wherever I go. You never know what they will have on clearance. I bought a wireless Schlage IP security camera for $29 last year. I had to change the firmware to another brand in order for it to work without a subscription fee but it works great now.I bought a 996XT for $99 and a Pro-106 for $83 today from the Radio Shack in Marshall Michigan. Both were brand new locked in the display case. Last of each one.
I stopped at 2 more stores in the area one had no scanners, one had the 996 for $469. I called 4 more and one had one for $369.
The 996 had the latest firmware the 106 had to be updated one level up.
I'm amazed anyone still had a Pro-106 in stock.
I had them do a store inventory search in Houston and they were the only store with one listed as in stock. Otherwise I'd be posting them for sale here. Good luck though, there has to be more around somewhere. Look for PRO-106 deals too.Hot damn! I think I'm gonna go around RS stores in my area and look for them.
Kinda pricey for clearance. I paid $72.00 plus tax and got two $10 coupons back. Was able to get 3 at that price. All mint too.Since I got such a great deal on the BCD-996XT yesterday, I went back and bought the PRO-106 being clearanced, Paid $150
