Amazon storage sale has big drives for low prices today

Storage is something that a person living in the digital age can never get enough of, and if you find yourself a little low on available space, then you might want to have a look at Amazon. Today, the company is hosting a one-day sale on a variety of different storage devices, from SD cards and flash drives to SSDs and external hard drives. Some of the discounts on offer are pretty solid, so let’s dive into them.

There aren’t a ton of discounts – there’s only 26 sale items in all – but many of them are worth checking out. Many of these deals include discounts on portable storage, like SanDisk’s Ultra 400GB microSDXC card, which is down to $99.99 from $249.99. That’s a pretty significant discount, so if you’re running out of storage on your phone or a device like the Nintendo Switch, that would be a particularly good buy.

There are also a couple SanDisk flash drives on sale, such as its Ultra Flair 256GB USB 3.0 flash drive for $44.99. That’s only 27% off its original price, so it isn’t a massive discount like what we see on SanDisk’s 400GB microSD card, but it’s still a solid price for a good amount of portable storage.

If you’re looking for something like an internal or external hard drive or SSD, Amazon has some of those discounted as well. Western Digital’s My Passport Ultra 2TB external hard drive is $71.99 in this sale (down from $99.99), while SanDisk’s Ultra 2TB 3D internal SSD is $289.99 (down from $446.99).

So, depending on what you need in terms of storage, today’s sale might be worth a look. These deals are only around until the end of the day, with Amazon wrapping things up at 12 AM Pacific time tomorrow morning.
