Default Cheap source for USB keys (flash drives)

I would like to have 10 or so 64 meg (can be larger) USB keys for a project. Anyone have any ideas where to get something like this from? I would think I ought to be able to get 10 of them for about $30 somewhere but I haven't found anything like that yet. I can get 128meg keys for like $5 each but I want something cheaper. Used would be fine...

But fuji storage compression down 30% so only hold 700GB. Jimmy should have said no, thumbdrive is tired. But he good sport and transfer file anyway. Go to show you that itb storage device is fastest stock internal storage device on race track. You bring your 64 mb storage device and we line up on race track. fuji storage device fastest on circuit.
