Same price on amazon, though it's an add-on item. I would personally buy from bestbuy because of higher risk of getting fakes from Amazon (commingling of inventory with third party sellers).

It's on consumers to detect fakes. Amazon will handle this by refunding/sending replacement, but IMO this is not how shopping should be on the biggest online retailer in the US.

I think for things which are easy to fake and profits are high (SD cards, lens filters etc.) this makes sense. For most things, I think Amazon is still fine to shop because of convenience. Although, this article suggests otherwise: http://www.cnbc.com/2016/07/08/am...worse.html

I was not aware of any of this. I always order from Amazon because I assume it is the most reliable. I will reconsider this going forward. This sucks! Thanks for the link.

It's been a problem with the SD and micro SD cards for awhile now, so I almost always go the best buy route for them. The other big issue I've had with Amazon is shopping their Warehouse Deals, buying from Amazon as the seller, and receiving fakes/cheaper versions where people swap out the real product for a knockoff. Sometimes not even a knock off...ordered a few Philips Hue BR30 bulbs from them, opened the box to find normal CFL light bulbs. Guess the "Inspected by Amazon" sticker doesn't mean much.Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)
