[Amazon.ca] [Micro SD] Deal Dead, check again tomorrow - Samsung Evo Select (same as Plus) 256GB - $39.99

I saw this deal on Friday but held off in case there was more cash back on Cyber Monday. By then it was gone and no extra cash back.

Then I saw this deal yesterday as they said they were getting more stock on Dec 9 so I bought it but it was gone by the time I could post it.

Seems this deal comes and goes so keep watching for it!

Edit: Make sure it "Ships from and sold by Amazon.ca" to avoid fakes. And no matter what, check it once you get it and exchange if there's a problem.

Would this work on a nintendo switch?

Edit: just looked at the reviews and there is a LOT of people saying they got fakes.

Edit2: rolled the dice, see how I go, most of the fake cards look like they are the 128gb, though a couple reviews were 256gb. I recommend anyone buying these to test them as soon as you get them.

That's what I plan for it. Speed-wise it's probably overkill since it'll be limited by the Switch hardware, but in case I want it for something else then it's great.

Would this card be ideal for a GoPro hero 8?

Interestingly I saw some of the cheap Chinese dash cams that come with sd cards shoe a pic of these samsung looking ones but with their own branding. Scary stuff, explains the fakes

Bought this exact card 2 months ago for $55. Great card, too bad I didn't get it for this price though!

I bought a 196 MB Compact Flash card many years ago for $120.00 (half price sale at the time!) I try not to dwell on it.Smiling Face With Open Mouth

I still think it's a great value at the regular price. I needed a card fast for a trip and it was the best price at that time. Recorded a ton of 4K 60FPS video with it and it worked perfectly.

I just attempted to purchase one of these and seen this charge. Never seen this before on SD cards. Normal?

Not normal. Make sure it is "Shipped and sold by Amazon.ca"

I've tried using the link here, and searching manually both in Chrome and in the app. Verified shipped and sold by Amazon, price, etc. Each attempt results in that additional $4.40 charge. Very strange.

Very weird.. Must be a glitch or something.

Environmental handling fee was $1 for me.

No additional charges when I add the same card in 128gb capacity.

I think if there are fake reviews, they won't be for the version branded "Select", since Select is an Amazon-exclusive.

Could it be a higher fee specific to Alberta?
