Well, never run into this before...

The original seller makes profit, Amazon makes profit, Newegg makes profit.
It came with insert stating it was a GIFT.

OUCH.

New thought occured... If the item is listed as a "gift" then the IRS might be expecting me to pay income tax! ??

That would be a really nasty surprise.

$46 for this? :o It costs only $20 at Amazon... I know that Newegg likes to rip people off with slightly elevated prices on many of their products, but this is ridiculous...

I got a warning that the website likely contained malware when I clicked on the first link.

What's up with your link man? That URL looks sketchy as ****, or at least it looks like some sort of referral program.

edit: Looking through your post history, anytime you've linked to newegg you've used this proxy site. Are you gaming TR for click-throughs or what's the deal?
