    So, where you live, USB cables grow on money trees?

    Truly, America is the land of opportunity.

    Dollar Tree is a chain of stores that sells items for no more than $1

    More than anything, I'm just kind of annoyed by the inability to find a decent middle-of-the-road USB cable

    You can go to Wal-Mart where they charge like $10 for a cable that's worth half that much, or you can go to Dollar Tree and pay $1 for a cable that doesn't last very long

    Just let me pay $5 for a decent cable, dammit!

    YES I HAVE >:3
  • Have you tried an office supply store?

    They often have cheapo stuff near the cash registers.  I once picked up a USB car charger for like $5.

    Right now I have a couple of these:

    Incidentally, the Dollar Tree ones are passable if you're just interested in charging your device, but they're a little too unreliable for actual data transfer. At least the kind I've purchased. Dollar Tree actually sells a couple different varieties of cable...
  • I've actually got a few extra USB/microUSB cables just from devices that don't provide their own charging block but do provide their own USB/microUSB cable.  These included a Bluetooth speaker, Bluetooth headphones, and a Bluetooth selfie stick.

    Full disclosure: I am a bit rough on my micro-USB cables. All the ones that came with my devices ended up lost or broken.
