Between shopbot, pricebat, pricecanada and tons of other places you will save money. Doing otherwise just will cut into your budget.
Actually surprisingly shopbot and pricebat kept falling me searching for these cards. I don't know why, they just kept giving me the NCIX links.

And yeah I figured the cards would be a little cheaper all around, but I was just a little irked they would specifically call out HWC on the pricing.
