PNY 64GB Classic Attache USB Flash Drive for $35 plus $1 shipping, coupon code EMCXLWN26 applies $8 off, making the purchase price $28 (44¢/GB).
Also, a $10 mail-in rebate is available.
PNY USB flash drives like this are capable of reading around 13 MBytes/sec and writing around 5 MBytes/sec.
This means it can take a good 3.5 hours to fill all 64GB on the drive, and another 1.25 hours to read all the data from the drive.
If you need faster performance, look at getting a USB3.0 drive and plugging into a USB3.0 port (ports are in blue color).

According to a review, it reads and writes around 23 and 14 MBytes/sec, meaning it can take about 3.5 hours to copy 128GB of data onto this drive, and about 2.25 hours to copy all the data from this drive.
Considering the large 128GB capacity, it seems acceptable to take so long to copy.
Assuming you take the time to carefully submit the rebate, and assuming the rebate check comes, this is a great deal at about 32¢/GB.
