You could even use the AMZN-ELEC-DEAL (which gives $20 off of $100) and add a SanDisk SDMB-16-470 16MB MultiMedia Card for $29 more after coupon.
does anyone know if this thing is actually worth it?
Well.......if it was a Rio or one from Samsung yea. But seeing as how it is an iJam; they have been know to break. The fact that the m-cards are in two 16mb sucks two, if would be better if it was one 32mb card. But it is only 30 bucks, so hey it ain't too bad. If you have 30 bucks and want a MP3 player it is a pretty good find, but I wouldn't.

I agree that it's not the greatest MP3 player out there, but if you have someone on your Xmas list who needs one, go for it. Let them buy their own memory upgrade. The prices are bound to come down soon.
I bought the I Jam and added a color printer cartridge for my Epson 1270 for $21.94; that pushed me over the $100.00 mark by $1.98. I then used Amazon's $20.00 off coupon which, after the rebate, brings my grand total to $31.98. Even after shipping, that's a damn good deal.
