Any decent prices on Micro-SD cards?

As people are buying phones even at this time of year (including me), I'm wondering if there are any decent prices on SD cards of 64-128 GB size. I don't like going to the corner store and paying $$$ for some Class 4 no-name brand. What would you buy if you were ordering on-line?

As an example, Best Buy has a SanDisk Ultra 64GB for $29.99

That seems unlikely. Kingston is a well-known brand name, and their 64 Gbyte microSD cards routinely sell for about the same $30: https://www.amazon.ca/Kingston-Digital- ... ref=sr_1_1

With Kingston one never knows who the actual manufacturer is.

I have bought a fair number of Kingston mSD and SD cards over the years - some good, some not so good

You’re referring to the nand manufacturer.

Kingston is a marketing company. They spot buy from he cheapest producer that week. But they have a lifetime warranty like everyone else

I don't think Kingston's manufacturing arrangements are any different than anyone else. I have lots of Kingston memory cards. I've only ever had one fail. I RMAed it back to Kingston and they mailed me a new one in parallel, so no complaints. They would be my first choice in memory cards.
