    For the Kingston cards, the model numbers are SDC-1GBFE for the slightly more expensive. SDC-1GB for the less. No idea if there is any different. Could just be updated packaging for all we know. :/

    For the lower priced SanDisk card.
    "This item is "Bulk" packaged. Comes with Protective Plastic Case only (No retail packaging). No additional documentation is included. Full 1 year USA warranty"
    If that's the ONLY difference, then that is one hell of a price difference for packaging.

    Buy the Sandisk Bulk. I would be doing that right now if I was a US resident.

    Yea, the sandisk are different, because the $41 card is sold directly by amazon. The cheaper card is being selled through amazon by a proxy company.

    This is booked marked.

    Also, why would another company be selling this at a _much_ lower price?

    The $40 SanDisk has free shipping, while the $18 one has additional fees, $4.40 per item + $7 per shipment (the first item isn't included in the "per shipment", for some reason). That adds up to $30. Plus, the more expensive one comes in the retail box, probably with the little card-holder box too, and the cheaper one was purchased in bulk, and only comes in a bag (if you're lucky).
