Need some advice...RitzCamera/Quantaray UV filters

I know this question has been asked a few times, but:

I've got a gift certificate to ritzcamera.com which will soon expire. $20.
Need to buy something.

Was going to pick up one or two UV filters for lens protection, (I've got all the others I need Hoya: Circular Polarizer, ND4, IR72). Unfortunately, all they have is Quantaray stuff, which doesn't instill much confidence in me. I'm concerned about decrease in image quality. Should I still do it? Can't think of anything else to get that they store.

I've got a D40 with kit lens and 55-200mm VR lens.

Also traveling to Costa Rica soon, and was thinking that UV filter would be good protection from sand and rain while shooting at the beach and in the rain forest and volcano site.

Thoughts, comments???
