Then you can still get counterfeit cards: http://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-review...B00P3NMVVU

http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Memory-Mic...ewpoints=0 (read through the symptons and compare with the many reviews here that talk about the same behaviour when running Android on Pine64)

Here: counterfeit card from Best Buy: http://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?t...58#pid4458

And so on...

And sure, avoiding sources where you get most likely only fake cards is smart. But you'll never know. So always check after purchase and get a refund immediately instead of wasting your time with unreliable hardware leading to all sort of errors that are attributed to software or 'the Pine64 itself' later since you almost forgot that the card could be the real source of problems.
