Update: It looks like stock for the online store is depleted. If you've got a Fry's store near you, you might still be able to select in-store pickup. Here's a list of retail locations.

Happy Labor Day, Americans! Today is the day we celebrate unwise imbibing on a three-day weekend, billion-dollar retailers hosting sales that ironically force many of their employees to work, the nigh-limitless lobbying power of unions, and oh yeah, laborers. But you can take advantage of this very small deal on a 16GB Class 10 MicroSD card from Fry's even if you have to work, thanks to the magic of online shopping.

Fry's Online is offering this 16GB Samsung Class 10 UHS-1 MicroSD card for a rock-bottom $7.99, with $1.99 "Ultra Saver" shipping to the United States. It includes a handy standard SD adaptor for use in cameras and the like. Faster shipping options are available, and if you happen to live near one of Fry's massive retail stores you can select in-store pickup. Similar cards start at about $14 on Amazon, and considerably more at other stores.

If you're wondering what makes this particular card so special, that Class 10 Ultra High Speed rating means that it can read and write at 10MB per second. These types of cards are usually designed for quick shooting on DSLRs or high-definition video, but can also come in handy if you keep apps on your MicroSD card. Samsung and a few other manufacturers have begun to support this since Google removed the native Apps-to-SD feature in Jelly Bean, including NVIDIA's most recent update to the SHIELD.

The Samsung card will return to its regular retail price tomorrow. We haven't been able to find similar deals on any other cards during Fry's Labor Day Sale. If you're looking for something a little more capacious, Amazon has a SanDisk 32GB Class 10 card for $24 at its regular price.

    I don't have a use for one right now but I might pick it up just because.

  • EvilLordFluffy

    Oh if only I lived in the US, I've been looking for a cheap Micro SD card.

  • Spazticus

    I just checked the site, and it lists shipping as unavailable, but in-store pickup is an option.

    Then there's always the 64gb cards in Ali Express for $12, if you can wait a month for transit...

    • Herman

      And what speed or class would that be?

      How real are they?

      • Jose Torres

        They are NOT Samsung and definitely NOT class 10 (more like class 2).They do store about 60gb or so and of the three I bought, one failed. Two out of three ain't bad I guess...

          I had to post. I bought two Samsung 64GB class 10 SD card from Ali Express (well, if they are Samsung or not I don't know) and they clock 10.7MB/s write speed and 17MB/s reading.

          • Jose Torres

            WOW, not bad. I get write speeds in the mid 3's, I assume that it's since I am transferring through the phone USB storage feature?

    My galaxy s3 corrupted the non-Samsung card I had, do I bought a Samsung card. I didn't notice that the Samsung card was sold without an adapter, as EVERY OTHER card on the market packages the card and the adapter together. And not one tech store in Houston sells a Samsung adapter. The Samsung customer service people were shocked-shocked! I tell you-to think I'd want such a thing though they were willing to sell me one at an unacceptably high price. You can't use any other brand adapter, either. The card can't be read. Be aware of these problems if you buy a Samsung card.
