Here come the deals!
Today, Amazon is running one of its typical memory discounts, with SanDisk at the helm. You can grab their memory products for up to 60% off, which includes 200GB and 128GB microSD cards. The 128GB card has now dropped to $44.99, while the 200GB is now just $134.99.
The deal also includes thumb drives, full sized memory cards, and solid state drives, all of which have Prime shipping.
UPDATE: 200GB card dropped to $99 today.
Amazon’s deal of the day happens to be another massive discount on SanDisk storage products. We’re talking up to 60% off on everything from microSD cards to thumb and flash drives to solid state hard drives. These happen every so often, but they are always worth a look. Whether you have a new phone that needs additional storage or are building a computer and need a new-school hard drive, these deals offer great values.
Our favorite deals of the bunch are the deeply discounted 200GB microSD card for $149, 32GB class 10 microSD card for $10.99 (!!!), and the 960GB solid state drive for $255.
These deals are only good for today.
Still own a phone that has a microSD card slot and are in need of some storage? You might want to consider the deal running over at Amazon for the next few days that features a SanDisk 128GB microSD card for just $59.99. These cards typically retail for around $100, so you are looking at a solid 40% discount.
The card comes with an adapter, 48MB/s read speeds, and Prime shipping, for those who are members.
The deal is live until August 29.
Remember SanDisk’s sort-of-insane 200GB microSD card that became available a couple of weeks ago? We are about to save one of you $240, thanks to SanDisk, who has offered up a 200GB card as a giveaway prize to one of our readers. (more…)
Back in March, days after Samsung announced the Galaxy S6 without an expandable storage slot, SanDisk unveiled its new 200GB microSD card. They told us at the time to expect the “world’s highest capacity” card at some point in Q2 of this year. Well, here we are in Q2 and the card is available at retailers like Amazon.
Of course, this much storage will cost you. The price was supposed to start around $399, but Amazon has the little guy for $240. I don’t know that I would call that a “deal,” though that’s much easier to swallow than the original price quote.
With a card like this, you could technically hold up to 20 hours of full HD video or transfer 1,200 photos in a minute with theoretic speeds of 90MB/s.

Samsung may have flipped the bird to microSD cards, but that doesn’t mean most of the rest of the industry is fully in support of them. HTC is. LG is too. Sony loves SD cards. So that, my friends, means you should still be interested in deals like today’s over at Amazon. SanDisk flash storage – including microSD cards – has been slashed by up to 40%.
You can grab a UHS-1 Class 10 32GB microSD card for as little as $12.99. Maybe you need more storage? Jump to 64GB for just $24.99. Even SanDisk’s Extreme PRO cards with speeds up to 95MB/s have been discounted by 20%.
And if you simply do not need another microSD card in your collection, you can also buy regular SD cards or thumb drives on the cheap.

Samsung’s new Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge phones have few weaknesses on paper, but one is arguably the lack of a microSD card slot. For years, while the rest of the smartphone industry backed away from expandable storage, Samsung stuck to it, claiming that its customers would rather have the option. Whatever the reason was for cutting the feature from their new phones, it’s unfortunate, because storage companies like SanDisk are only going bigger and bolder with removable flash cards. This morning, SanDisk announced a new 200GB microSD card that arrives in Q2. (more…)
In case you didn’t know, SanDisk specializes in storage solutions – USB drives, microSD cards, and the like. So it’s only appropriate that the company unveiled a new flash drive this morning, but with a twist: it’s intended for Android smartphones and tablets. (more…)
