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?

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

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.

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.
