Amazon has discounted the SanDisk Ultra 256GB Micro SD Card today, dropping the price down to just $54.99. That is a pretty incredible price for this micro SD card. This brings this particular model down to its all-time lowest price, beating its former all-time lowest price by about $8. And for $55, it's hard to beat this deal, considering you are getting 256GB of storage here.
The SanDisk Ultra 256GB Micro SD Card is part of the Ultra lineup which boasts some pretty fast read and write speeds. We're talking about speeds of around 100MB/s on the read and write side of things. This means that you are going to be able to record video and have it write to the SD card without having to wait for it to write. Slower SD cards will take longer to write, and thus force the user to wait longer to actually shoot more video or take more pictures. So if you are doing a lot of 4K recording, this is definitely a good micro SD card to pick up right now. This also comes with a SD card adapter, so if you are looking to use this in a DSLR, then you can do so with the SD card adapter, and even at $55, this is still a good price for a regular sized SD card. As a micro SD card, it will work in many smartphones – like the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, LG V40 ThinQ, HTC U12+ and more – it will also work on GoPro's and other action cameras and many more products. What really sets apart this micro SD card from others on the market, though, is the fact that it is A1 certified. So that you can actually use this for Adoptable Storage (that is Android's feature for using the SD card to store apps and games on), and not worry about it being slower. In fact, it will still run about as fast as the storage inside of your smartphone. So you can store apps, games, movies, TV shows, pictures, music and more on this micro SD card without worrying about how slow it might be. This is definitely a good pick up right now, especially if you do need some more storage.
This is also eligible for Amazon Prime's free shipping. Which includes free two-day shipping, and pretty cheap (usually $3.99) next-day shipping if you need it extra fast. However, if you are in one of the select areas that has Prime Now, this is also available and you can get it within a couple of hours, if you are in desperate need.

You'll get 30 days free (if you're a student, you get 6 months), and then it's $119/year (or $59/year for students). Prime members do get a whole lot more than just free shipping though, so be sure to check out the full benefits. That includes Amazon Prime Video, Twitch Prime, and even some benefits at Whole Foods.
