The eBay action never stops, the Best Buy eBay store is offering the 128GB Sandisk Ultra Fit USB 3.0 Flash Drive (Type A, aka the “standard”/”normal” USB connector) for $28 with free shipping. Limit one unit per customer during this sale.
These are handy if you want to use them on a laptop or front desktop port and don’t want the USB flash drive stick like a sore thumb. You can also use them with various media players and networking/networked-storage devices or media players that have full size USB ports. Since they are small, you can also attach them to smartphones or tablets that support USB OTG (you have to use your own microUSB to USB OTG or USB-C to USB cable).
Speaking of storage, microSD is another way to feed extra storage to devices without sticking out, and the Samsung EVO Select U3 line is on sale at Amazon for $13 (32GB) or $23 (64GB) or $45 (128GB). They include a full size adapter, they have a 10-year warranty (Samsung is going to be around in ten years for sure [* other things equal]), and promise up to 100MB/sec and up to 60MB/sec in Read and Write speeds (other things equal).

These are not lightning deals. Free shipping for Prime members or with a $35+ order (although sometimes it shows minimum $25, so it may still be in flux, I’m not sure).
This apparently sold out and the 16GB option got removed from the website. This may be temporary, as Amazon sometimes yanks listings temporarily when a sale end (must be so kind of a technical issue, perhaps to counter caching issues?)

On the memory card front, the 64GB Sandisk Extreme PRO SDXC UHS-I, Class 10, V30, model DSDXXG-064G-GN4IN, is on sale for $34.95 at Amazon by Amazon itself. Free shipping for Prime members or with a $35+ order (which is why I didn’t round the price, because those $0.05 block non-Prime members from free shipping).

The Best Buy daily daily deal expired, but the 64GB Sandisk Ultra PLUS SDXC memory card continues for $30 with free shipping (instead of $28) by Best Buy on eBay.
One of the Tuesday Best Buy daily deals is a sale on the Sandisk Ultra PLUS SD cards with the 64GB going for $28 and the 32GB going for $18 with free shipping and store pickup. It’s easier to offer free shipping on a tiny little thing such as a memory card 🙂
The PLUS models are faster than the non-PLUS models according to the Sandisk website. The model numbers are different too. The 64GB Ultra PLUS is SDSDUSC-064G-AN6IN while the non-PLUS is SDSDUNC-064G-GN6IN. Visually you can tell the non-PLUS by the absence of the PLUS in the pictures (assuming the retailers use the correct pictures which is not always guaranteed; eg Best Buy on eBay linked in the first paragraph). If you don’t need the extra speed, the non-PLUS currently goes for $22 at Amazon by Amazon itself.
The Best Buy daily deal price ends Tuesday night. The Amazon price is an organic or price-match or dynamic market-driven price; to cut a long story short, I have no clue when that price will change 🙂
