Need a 32 or 64gb micro sd, where to find one cheap?

I was thinking of maybe going with samsung for something cheap that won't corrupt
Know of any trusted ebay/amazon sellers that I could get it from?

Or perhaps any other location? I'll be out of the country for a while and I need them for the other devices.

Costco is 25$ for 64gb or 47$ for 128gb as of 17/05/17. Otherwise I'd check Amazon. 32gb no deals atm from what i have seen so i would go for a 64gb. Costco and Amazon are the same price for 64gb. For 32 you'll be paying over half price of the 64gb so.... Buy whatever you need.

Good luck! :)

Is costco's 25 bucks for 64 gigs a regular price?

Funny, everybody is talking about price and size, but nobody is talking about speed. Unless the same speed, no comparison is worth it. My next USB will be a 3.1.
I'm not using a camera, this is just a tablet reading mediocre quality movies off a tablet. The typical speeds on this are sufficient and not to mention 3.1 doesn't matter because as the title of this thread stated, I'm looking for micro sd.
But feel free to buy one and put it in a usb 3.1 port Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Smiling Eyes

My mistake. Next time I'll take the time to read the whole title of the thread :( That will teach me for not taking the time to read properly.
It's fine but I certainly agree that most people probably don't care

usb and microsd isn't the same animal. microsd is a card. Even when comparing usb drives, 3.1 isn't always faster than 3.0. Some 3.1 drives have the faster inferface but use slower memory.

Walmart has a bunch on clearance for as low as $3.00 but stores usually sell out at those prices. Try also The Source as many of the 16, 32 and 64 GB ones are on sale again...

16GB high performance at Walmart:

Do you know if costco's 64gb card comes with a USB reader?

I would suggest avoiding the Patriot brand. I've RMA'd around 40% of the memory cards bought so far, and their sd card adapters keep falling apart. Some of their cards claim Class 10 performance but falls short and is closer to class 8 or 9 in write speeds.
