SIM cards in Bulgaria

Anyone with any experience getting a SIM card in Bulgaria? Best places to buy them, etc?

In literally every city and town you will see Yettel, A1 and Vivacom stores all over the place. You walk in, purchase a pre-paid sim card, pop it out of the package, and place it in your device. I personally would stick with A1, it costs 40 BGN ($20) for 50MB of data and a phone number (which doesn't accept SMS which nobody uses in BG anyway, they all use viber).

50MB of data? That sounds tiny. Should that be 50GB?

(I'm signed up for Best of Bulgaria next year and I always use a local SIM.)

Thanks. I assumed it would be easy but I’ve never been to Bulgaria before so thought I’d double-check.
