How to purchase, download and install TS CALs

I'm in a bind and need to get my hands on a 5 Pack of TS Cals for 2008 quickly. Are there any sites where you can purchase these and immediately download for use? I've looked but it seems like everythinjg with MS licensing is made to be as confusing as possible.

Do you have a technet subscription? I believe there are CAL's for TS included with that?

Also you should be able to install the TS Role for 120 days without license.

You can purchase licenses from anywhere that sells them you will then usually you recieve an email with the license information. You will then need to add the CALs to a TS licensing server you will then need to activate those CALs.

i do not have a technet subscription.
Also, I have already used up the 120 day demo period. It just expired today which is why im in this mess.

I guess Im hoping someone can provide a link to a place that sells the Cals and it is known for sure that you get them digitally. i cannot afford to wait for it to be shipped.

Are you on Per User or Per Device licensing (set on the TS itself)? If it is per device you can simply delete the MSLicensing registry key from any device that is prevented to connect and they will get a new temporary license, good for 90 days, giving you plenty of time to find the best place to purchase your licenses.
If you are on Per User, this is not enforced so you should still be good to go after the 120 days.
Note:
1. In both cases the licensing server MUST be up/running/activated after the 120 days.
2. The recommendations above are NOT meant to be used to circumvent licensing but as directions to give you more time to find a reseller and get your the licenses you need.
