Amazon offers the 256GB SanDisk Ultra Fit USB 3.1 Flash Drive for $49.99 shipped. Also at Newegg. You can expect to pay $70 at Best Buy on sale, and this is the second-lowest price we’ve tracked all-time at Amazon. With college in full swing for many, a flash drive like this is crucial to keep backups of papers and homework in case your computer dies. Rated 4.1/5 stars from hundreds.

For a more premium build quality, we still have Samsung’s 256GB USB 3.1 Flash Drive for $60, and as a more budget-friendly option, there’s always a 32GB USB 3.1 Flash Drive for $11 Prime shipped.
