Agreed, and in looking at today's prices, my 2016 purchases were a steal.

FWIW, it also included three 64GB SDXC cards (SanDisk 64GB Extreme 
UHS-I Class 10) for $20 each.

That's where I'm at now...plus I also buy only from B&H, to
minimize counterfeit risks.  My last 'off brand' were some 
Delkin's in 2012 (was $37 for 16GB = ~$2.30/GB)

Using 32GB cards at B&H, they're currently around ~$1/GB, especially
when at the lower speeds (not sure what you really need (vs want)):

"330x"
$26 ... SanDisk 32GB Ultra ('up to Write 50 / Read 50 MB/sec)

"800x"
$32 ... SanDisk 32 GB Extreme (UDMA 7; Write 85/Read 120 MB/sec)
$60 ... two-pack of same --> works out to $0.94/GB

"1000x"
$48 ... SanDisk 32GB Extreme Pro ({160MB/s} W150/R160 MB/sec)

"1066x"
$75 ... two-pack of Lexar Professional (UDMA 7; W(65)155/R160 MB/sec)
        --> $1.17/GB

Link for the above, plus you can change the search to 64GB cards, etc:

<https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?Ns=p_PRICE_2%7c0&ci=1097&a...

FWIW, I don't see B&H offering any Lexar 128GB's (let alone a "2000x"), but
they do have a Sandisk Extreme ("800x")for $85 and a Sandisk Extreme Pro
("1000x") for $150, which works out to $0.66/GB & $1.17/GB respectively.

And for price history, one can find tools such as:

and this one for understanding price trends over time:

Yes, there's always more considerations and elements to consider
building into one's contingency plans.  The good news is that
memory pricing isn't one that still costs an arm & leg.
