Transcend SD Cards are Amazon’s Deal of the Day

Transcend 64GB SDXC Speed Class 3

Amazon has several Transcend SDXC cards available as its Deal of the Day today, June 11, 2015. Recall that Transcend’s U3 cards scored well in my recent memory card test with the Nikon D7200. Unfortunately, the high-end, 85MB/s versions are not on sale too. But Amazon still has solid deals on the entry-level and mid-range cards.

MicroSDXC cards, flash thumb drives and SSD drives are also part of today’s deals. Check them out here on Amazon.com.
