Good place to buy MicroSD

Postby pmaria » Jun 9th, 2017, 12:08 pm

Hello,

I need to buy a 64gb MicroSD for a GoPro somewhere today, as I'm leaving on a trip in the morning. Normally I buy online, but there's no time. I see Best Buy has the one I need but $30 more than online. London Drugs doesn't have the correct one. I'm wondering if there are any other places in Kelowna with a decent selection / price on these? It needs to be minimum class 10, so not any microSD will do.

I think best buy or Walmart will be your best bet for variety and price options

Good call on lens and shutter, and I never even thought of Walmart, but worth a shot. Thanks to you both!

Every card I have I got from NCIX. Waiting for a sale for a U3 rated card for my camera with 4K capability. 4K needs U3, U1 just won't do. Prices are falling though, a U1 rated Adata 64Gb (I own this one) going for $35 and the U3 version $10 more. I have more than one Adata cards and have had zero problems.
Currently free shipping on over $50.
Why use a big word when a diminutive one will suffice.

I once showed a Best Buy salesman an online ad for another store, and he matched the price. So if you were to go in and show someone the on-line deal, they might match it.

Yeah, bestbuy does match with NCIX... I got a PlayStation deal because of it. Took a little arm twisting to prove NCIX actually has a walk-in store front, otherwise bestbuy may not match.

Just pull this up on your phone the next time you have to convince someone that NCIX has a storefront: https://goo.gl/zZ2EB7
I'd like to change your mind, but I don't have a fresh diaper.
