Amazon is offering the PNY 128GB Pro Elite microSDXC Card for $24.99 shipped. That’s $10 off the typical rate there and beats the lowest price we have tracked by $5. For Switch owners, you may be surprised to find out that Mario Kart 8, Super Mario Odyssey, and Zelda BOTW all fit on less than 30GBs of storage. With such an incredibly low price, this is an excellent and cost-effective way to say goodbye to physical media in favor of digital downloads. If you’re not a gamer, this is still a budget-friendly way to boost storage on a variety of digital cameras, Android devices, and more. Rated 4/5 stars. Those looking for a 1TB SD card, have a look at the deal we found yesterday. Continue reading to find other sizes included in this sale.

expiredSanDisk’s Ultra 2TB 2.5-inch SSD drops to $200 at Amazon (Reg. $240)

Amazon is offering the SanDisk Ultra 2TB Internal 2.5-inch Solid State Drive for $199.99 shipped. Matched at Best Buy. That’s $40 off the typical rate and is one of the best Amazon offers we have tracked. Having upgraded my PS4 about a month ago to a full-blown SSD, I can happily say it plows through loading screens much faster than all of my friends’ consoles. On top of that, I can rest easier knowing that my drive is significantly less likely to fail since there are no moving parts. Even SanDisk acknowledges this with a 5-year warranty that supersedes what’s generally seen in HDDs by around 65%. Read and write speeds on this drive exceed 500MB/s, making it a great option for consoles, PCs, and aging Macs. Rated 4.6/5 stars.

expiredBoost PS4 speeds and capacity with Seagate’s 2TB SSHD: $65 (Reg. $90)

Amazon is offering the Seagate 2TB FireCuda Gaming SSHD for $64.99 shipped. That’s $25 off the typical rate there and is a match for the lowest price we have tracked. PS4 debuted with 500GBs of storage. Recent iterations offer 1TB capacities, but even that can feel cramped for folks that prefer digital downloads. This 2TB drive will at least double capacity, taking storage to a whole new level. It’s a solid state and conventional hard drive hybrid, yielding faster speeds than what’s traditionally seen. Rated 4.3/5 stars.
