Amazon offers the SanDisk 32GB iXpand Flash Drive for iPhone and iPad at $25.99 shipped. Best Buy charges a bloated $60, and at Amazon it’s typically around $30. Today’s deal is a new all-time low and the best available. Though with more storage coming as base options on newer iPhones, those of you who hold onto a device for a while might still struggle with finding space every now and then. This is a great way to offload images from your phone while still keeping a physical backup of them and not using iCloud. Rated 3.7/5 stars from over 1,800 shoppers.
