Retailer is not Amazon Canada in this case, it's a 3rd party seller - Elecanada, while being fulfilled by Amazon.ca.

The actual Amazon Canada's price is $129.07.

Fulfilled by Amazon means you can still get a fake.

That only works if you know how to test it.
Otherwise the guarantee won't be much consolation after you lose your vacation photos.

I think the only way to be sure is to print or save media on multiple locations . Everything will eventually fail

I ended up buying the 128gb from states amazon for 50 bucks cad. Sold and shipped by amazon. So far good the only issue is it claims 100mbps but is about 25 in read and write. If anyone has any recommendations for a better micro sd it would be helpful.

Two different matters; 1. Immediate storage capability validation. 2. Functional reliability over a period.

If anyone cares, please be aware that I purchased 2 Sandisk micro SD cards from Amazon in the past few months.

The first was sold by a 3rd party and fulfilled by Amazon, while the second was sold and shipped directly by Amazon.

Both of them were fake.

I read on multiple occasions that any card sold directly by Amazon was safe, but I can assure you that this is incorrect. No matter what, you can receive a fake card from Amazon.

I don't think Amazon has any intention to sell any fake item. However, Amazon uses "Commingling" to allow the mix of inventory from different sellers raises a major issue of shipping a fake product even you think you are ordering from a trusted source. If a product has never added to the Amazon fulfillment center by another marketplace sellers, then the product "Ship and Sold" by Amazon should be closed to 100% safe unless the there is another issue from Amazon's own source - distributor or manufacturer. Keepa.com can be used to verify if the product is ever added by a marketplace seller

For this product, you can see there are 4 different sellers (3 marketplace and Amazon). Regardless the specific seller is being picked for the order, there is no guarantee the product is coming from that seller at all. However, even if that seller you pick is selling the fake product, but Amazon may ship its own product to you. In that case, you will receive the real one. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee.

Considering that "SanDisk Ultra 200GB microSDXC UHS-I " was widely available on Prime Day for $64.49 - and anyone could create a new account and 30 day free trial - I would call the value of this deal questionable at best.

Time machine aside, I'd guess that for every 1 person who got a counterfeit and had to deal with customer service, at least 9 did not.

FWIW, I've bought MicroSD cards from the 3rd party Amazon re-seller, "Maracana CA", multiple times in the past few years [96% positive over the past 12 months. (5,507 total ratings)].

In general, they feature competitive prices compared to the Amazon dynamic pricing algorithm (I actually wouldn't be surprised if the bots use them as the baseline from time to time) and I've never, ever received a fake from Maracana CA as the supplier and delivery agent. Stand up guys until proven otherwise, as far as I'm concerned.
