You can probably just wait until June or August when various stores do big calculator sales. If you are lucky enough to find an European store that don't charge a lot for oversea shipping, then all you have to do is buy a TI-83 Premium CE for 90 euros then you just saved $20. Used ones might be cheaper, but some Ebay sellers might charge a lot for oversea shipping.

Else, you can wait until Canada got some for sale and take advantage of the poor exchange rate.

~$80 is still a lot for a (soon to be) poor college student.

Yeah true. Hopefully you can save and buy one later, though :P

Too bad DJ is so far from you. He could send you his CE. Or, you could always try GoFundme. What never worked for me might work for you... ;)

Actually, DJ only lives ~6 hours away from me.

Kinda surprising considering we are in two different countries, but not surprising I guess if your city is close to the border.

You can't do it like that, @Ivoah! You must state your purpose,  explain your intentions, give several links to increase interest, make it all look fancy, share it everywhere you can with some photoshopped "would-be screenies," and add some sentimental reason exactly why you can't currently get the money! The way you are doing it now is the same way I tried, and I am currently posting from a Nokia E63, not a gleaming and frequently cleaned beautiful Android.
You must think like a :ninja: :walrii: !

Wait, so, if DJ's not so far away, can't he just send you his CE? It's not like it's his only calculator. But you could always try to my :ninja: plan.

Well, seeing as a TI-84+ CE is like $100 I doubt he'd just give it to someone on the internet. But hey, I wouldn't mind if he wanted to ;)

You know your country is too big when you think 6 hours is close. Anything over 20 minutes away is far in my book. 6 hours gets me to france, dammit!

It takes ~30 minutes to get to the nearest supermarket for me, so 6 hours isn't too crazy.

~6 hours would get me about 1/6 of the way across the country ('murica)

Got some more progress, screenies, a fancy progress bar, project website, or any money(or maybe improvements) from GoFundme?
And I wonder if you've considered checking eBay? I saw a CE on sale, working but damaged, for $72. I don't know if it's still there, though.
Oh. DJ Omnimaga already suggested this. :-|
