Update, February 11, 2019 (1:50PM EST): That was quick! After publication, the price jumped up to $77. It’s still a good discount from the normal $99.99 price tag, but it’s not as much of a discount as it was before. We updated the original article below to reflect the new price.
Original article, February 11, 2019 (12:46PM EST): For a limited time, Amazon is holding a sale on SanDisk microSD cards and SSDs. The headliner is a 400GB microSD card currently selling for just $77.
This is a Class 10 microSD card that supports Full HD video recording and playback. The card also features up to 100MB/s transfer read speed, an A1 rating for use with Android smartphones and apps, and a 10-year warranty should anything go awry.
Lastly, you can download the SanDisk Memory Zone app to manage files on the microSD card. That’ll come in handy, since you can use the microSD card with everything from smartphones and cameras to laptops and the Nintendo Switch.
If you want something beefier, Amazon also offers some discounted SanDisk SSDs. Of note are the 500GB and 1TB options, which go for $67.99 and $125.99, respectively. Both SSDs are part of SanDisk’s Ultra line of SSDs — that means a five-year warranty, faster boot-up times relative to a 7200RPM SATA drive, sequential read speeds of up to 560MB/s, and sequential write speeds of up to 530MB/s.
Even though the SSDs are meant to live inside of a computer, you can snag a USB 3.0 enclosure to use them as external and portable storage.
