Deal: SanDisk's 200 GB microSD is down to just $59.99 for a limited time
When SanDisk rolled out its 200 GB microSD card back in June of last year, the $239 asking price seemed fairly reasonable. In fact, it was something of a bargain given the $399 retail price suggested upon its announcement at MWC '15. In more recent times, the 200-gig card's price has fallen dramatically, with last month's $89 asking price having since been bettered by the $79 cost in early March. Today's deal, which runs for a very limited time, sees the price drop down to $59.99 over at Amazon, and even if you don't require all that real estate, the smaller storage options are also heavily discounted. 

We always expect the per-gigabyte price of storage hardware to decrease as time goes by. But the SanDisk microSD story has been music to the ears of avid geeks. Whether you own a compatible smartphone, tablet or DSLR camera, a microSD card adds a great deal more potential in a minuscule package. As we've discussed before now, SanDisk is among the authority in this particular department, placing the latest deal firmly in the cheap and cheerful category. 

The $59.99 is a saving of 76 percent on the list price, but as aforementioned, you don't have to go for the whole 200 GB if it's not required. There are similarly enticing price cuts on most denominations of SanDisk's range, with the 32, 64 and 128 GB offerings down to $9.99, $17.99 and $34.99 respectively. 

The price change is not indefinite, and at the time of writing, there are 18 hours to run. If you've been waiting patiently for a price drop, we've a hunch that quality microSD storage won't get this cheap for a while. 

Given the price, it is possible that Amazon could sell out before the end of the deal's duration. Thus, if you are interested, do hit up that source link sooner rather than later to avoid missing out.

Ughh. I just bought a 64GB Samsung Micro SD Card last night for $23.45. Do any of you prefer Samsung Micro SD Cards over SanDisk? Or are both pretty much the same quality in your opinion?

I used to use SanDisk cards, now I just use Samsung card. No particular preference, it's just that I prefer Samsung's color choice

Samsung Evo and Pro Plus series of SD cards are better, IMO.

For me, either the 64GB Sandisk Extreme Pro or the 128GB Samsung Evo Plus.

Its U3 write speed make it a plug in and forget especially for Go Pro user.

Depends. Some high speed SanDisk cards did give problems to GoPro users especially those with the Black edition (such as myself). They met the ratings but subsequently failed but the issue has been fixed on SanDisk's end but it left a sour taste in my mouth.

I prefer to use Samsung or PNY as they are just as good for a cheaper price, this current discount on the 200GB excluded.

I using Sandisk Extreme Pro 64GB for my Nvidia Shield TV running Android 6.0 is just sweet.

I install all my available Android games on it and it automatically installed on to microSD card, no fuss, no lag.

I only buy Sandisk or Samsung. Samsung EVO Plus has good enough write speed too especially for their 64GB and 128GB option.

If you have no issues with spending an extra $40 or so then the SanDisk should serve you quite well for a long time... that is if you see yourself filling up that 64GB card in a short time.

Isn't that always the case, you get something for what you think is a good price (and actually in some cases is already a good price)!

And then it goes on sale (even bigger).

Personally, most recently, I bought a playstation tv, despite it going out of style, so I could play on a bigger screen, and it got cut to what basically is 40$ from its already cheap 78$ at same shop, two days after I bought it was like....
"of course" and that's just the most recent, luckily shop refunded the difference.

I can get the Silicon Power card 128GB for $35. Why waste money on this card?

In terms of quality and speed, is the Silicon Powered card better? Price-wise, 128GB for $35 is roughly $0.27 per GB vs the SanDisk 200GB for $60 is $0.30 per GB so it's fairly close on price per GB.

Wondering the same thing.... I have the SP card... and ill just sell it or give it to my fiance, if this is actually more powerful... but if they're even i don't think ill ever truly need more than 128 gigs lol

It's pretty good but the speed isn't quite as fast but still good. I have one in 128GB form and it works quite well with my GoPro and Sony Action cams without a hiccup.

Price is showing $127, so I guess the sale went away.

Edit, there we go, I see the 59.99 price.

Haha, funny that it's now saying it doesn't ship to Canada, whereas earlier, I already bought 2 from that same Amazon page...
