Theres a one day deal on microsd cards on amazon.
http://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-microSDHC-Memory-Adapter-SDSDQUA-032G-U46A/dp/B007XZM6VG/ref=br_lf_m_1000816791_1_3_ttl?ie=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&s=pc&pf_rd_p=1391534462&pf_rd_s=center-3&pf_rd_t=1401&pf_rd_i=1000816791&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=0K2NNZYR730E3E8A30KW

And ssds too!

But they only ship to the USA.
I've never used shipitto or similar services, it looks like it could be expensive fast and i dont know the cost of what its going to be.

I only really want a 32gb micro sd. Any ideas/can anyone assist or suggest?

edit: what im concerned about is amazon uses extremely large boxes compared the package size - i dont know how much shipitto is going to charge me.

The actual products themselves aren't that large but im unsure what they put it in.

Although I don't use one of those services, I had the iPad 1 pre-ordered before they came out here in the states and sent to a friend in the states, the postage added California tax etc on it when it went out. Just keep in mind these little hidden costs of getting stuff shipped to the US then back to NZ.

Theres a massive difference in quality and speed, i currently have a Patriot micro SD class 10 and im sick of it. It can manage decent sequential speeds but anything random and its terrible.

Forwarding can work under the right conditions - either wait extreme shipping times 4-6 weeks for cheap shipping and risk stolen items.

Or pay for a courier service and be prepared to ship lots of items at one go to make things worth it. Watch out for customs duties that you have to declare.

I do not recommend sharing accounts either - I believe is it against T&C, the named person is completely responsible for what others do, if you get caught by your shares attempting to send dangerous/illegal goods, you will be liable as the person's account signs the customs declaration.

eXDee: Theres a massive difference in quality and speed, i currently have a Patriot micro SD class 10 and im sick of it. It can manage decent sequential speeds but anything random and its terrible.


If random speeds are your main issue, have you looked at class 4 instead?  I seem to remember a thread on xda developers going into details on them having better random access speed. This one I think:
