Deal: Snag a high-performance 128 GB microSD card for $70 on Amazon
Running out of storage is perhaps second on the list of mobile device owners' pet peeves behind, of course, a dead battery. Most of us have been in that position where, upon trying to install an app or download a video, the dreaded pop-up kindly informs us that the system is out of free space. Although manufacturers are increasingly trying to stifle the idea of expandable memory, microSD slots are still fairly prevalent, offering invaluable respite at a time when millions of apps are available to download. If you're in the market for a microSD card for your device, there's a limited-time deal on Amazon pushing a 128-gig card for just $71.99. 

That's an incredibly low price, and if you like to hoard music, videos and apps, may be an investment worth making. The Lexar MicroSDXC 633X is a high performer despite the price, boasting up to 95 MB/s read speed. It comes with a USB 3.0 adapter as well, so you can readily hook it up to your computer or any other device lacking card-reading facilities. 

If you aren't looking for so much real estate, Lexar has a number of other storage options currently on offer. The 64 GB version is down from $94.99 to $31.99, the 32 GB edition has dropped from $50.99 to $23.95, and the 16 GB variant has been reduced from $33.99 to $17.95. With a saving of $88 over the usual price, though, that 128 GB offering looks very tempting indeed. 

At the time of writing, the deal has just over 15 hours left to go, so if you want to get involved, act quickly. Needless to say, these could well sell out before the allotted discount window has closed, so grab yourself a real bargain at the source before somebody else does.

64GB version is the best deal @ about $0.50 per GB

Well, the option I posted in comment 4 has an average of $0.47 per GB for a 128 Micro SDXC. It's 15 MB/s slower though...

I just order 3 pieces of Sandisk Extreme Pro 64GB from Amazon. I think write speed is very crucial for the impatient like me. Its also important when 4K video recording get more popular.

There's a cheaper option for 128GB on a Micro SDXC card if anyone else is interested. Granted, it's only 80 MB/s speeds and not the 95 like the one in this article but it should still be fast enough for most of your needs. $59.99 (Save you an additional $10.00) and it's not on a timed sale like this one.

Why thank you, they other guy retaliated by doing the same to me, but I think he could have done a better job. I noticed that you are without a profile picture, you should join in on the fun!

Well, originality had never been his forte. He just copies and claims it was his idea. Why does that sound so familiar....?

Yeah, and it's a darn shame too, I would really like to talk crap to someone with an actual functioning brain. It'd make things more fun around here. Question, at my current rate, how long do you think it'll take me to get banned for good? Or do I need to cross some more lines first? lol.

Yeah, that's the one I purchased earlier, liking the added storage in my Surface Pro 2 :)

I bought that one before. It is a very good card. I bought it when it first came out and I paid $110 for it. Nice to see the price drop. The only problem I had is, when you put the card inside the adapter and put it in a USB 3.0 port, it gets really hot. Be careful.

Just in time for my 950xl preorder. Coincidentally. I was browsing the phonearena database and came across a rather interesting device. 64gb internal, two sd card slots, 3gb rom, stock android, qi, ois, gg4, stereo front speakers, 3100mAh battery, usb 3.0, water resistant, 20 mp camera, 13mp selfie camera, fingerprint scanner, 443 ppi, 75% screen to body ratio, 5 inches, 141 grams, $600. WOW!. If I were an android fan this would have me drooling. I'm drooling and I'm a confessed wp fan. this phone ticks all of the boxes of what people want in a phone. Why isnt there more coverage of this device?

Damn, it's an older phone though with an 801 processor and running Android 4.4.4, I doubt it'll ever get 6.0. But yeah, it would have been an awesome phone to buy if i was in the market for a new device when it was first released. Nice find!

It's a crowd funded project, supposed to see the daylight around 6 months ago, but it's still coming out of the womb. Guys who have funded it, is ready to take a life and guys who have preordered it via their website, would love to.....

Damn, just bought TWO 128GB Sandisk MicroSD 80MB/s cards for $70 USD and they've already arrived here in Canada...oh well, I'll purchase two of those and demand a refund from Sandisk. EDIT Make that $60, I'll keep the savings.

Would be good if it weren't for all the phone manufacturers trying to get rid of micro SD slots and charging hundreds of dollars extra for a 128gb model.

My next SmartPhone better have MicroSD card slot or simply no purchase, the privacy-invading cloud is not an option, can't install apps on it. Only went with the OnePlus One 'cause it offered a gateway from iOS to Android while keeping the semi-privacy of iOS (via Privacy Guard), OS updates are both carrier/manufacturer independent (Cyano, didn't think I'll need more than 64GB (just past half of my 64GB storage iPhone), and pricing from 16GB to 64GB was good enough for that time (just $50)...
