The Samsung Evo Select 256GB microSDXC memory card has dropped to $33.99 on Amazon. This price is about $6 off what it normally sells for, and it has been going for $40 since last year. We used to see deals on these cards regularly, but after the holiday season they jumped back up to street prices and stayed there. While the 256GB card has gone as low as $28 before, today's price is the best deal we've seen in some time.

You can also save on the 128GB version of the card. This one is down to $18.99 from a street price of $22. That's a great low price. It has gone as low as $17 in the past, but that was half a year ago at this point. Both options offer some good savings today.

This is an SDXC card so you need to make sure your device can support it. The card is perfect for recording high-quality 4K video. Use it with a laptop, a Nintendo Switch, or any other device that needs a lot of storage. Has a 10 year warranty.

Samsung's EVO Select microSD cards are extremely popular and for good reason. They are some of the fastest and most reliable microSD cards out there. This Class 10 UHS 3 card has read speeds of up to 100MB/s and write speeds of up to 90MB/s. It works great for recording video (even 4K), as well as playing mobile games, taking pictures, and more. The card comes with a full-sized SD card adapter as well so you can put it into devices that accept SD cards instead of microSD cards.

Remember these high-capacity caards are labeled microSDXC. Not all devices can handle microSDXC, so you'll need to make sure whatever device you're buying this for can actually use it. Gaming consoles and laptops generally tend to be able to handle everything. But dash cams and similar smaller cameras tend to have a cap on how much storage they can support.

MicroSD cards are used in a wide variety of ways, and if you're shopping around, you should probably know a few of the devices that use these. So many devices including security cameras, action cameras, drones, and even the Nintendo Switch Lite depend on microSD cards. Whatever you're looking for, be sure to grab one of these so your devices are ready to rock.
