Where to buy a Contour+?

So I've come to the conclusion that I'd like a POV camera, and that the Contour+ is likely the one I should go with. It's a little more $$, but the quality seems the same, the features are better, I can use the BT viewfinder while it's in the waterproof case and it doesn't look ridiculous when attached to anything.

Does anyone have recommendations on where to purchase one (and some accessories) online? Price is the biggest consideration, but it'd be nice to have good service and fast.

Also, if you've got a Contour+ can you tell me why this is a great decision or if I'll regret it?

I was set on getting the contour+ then the go pro 2 came out. So much cheaper! I have a contour 1080p and it worked well. But the metal creates a ring on top of the lens wich then turns into a snow catcher if you are shredding pow. So many of my shots were just a plug of snow on the lens. I rigged a better setup with a 38mm filter.

I know Go pros make you look like a teletubby but for the price you gotta do it.

Gopros have better mounting options. Get one.
