Get Massive Discounts On Storage Devices On World Backup Day
You can save big on microSD cards, SSDs, flash drives, and more.
Today is officially World Backup Day--a day that celebrates the fun task of preventing data loss. It might not be the most exciting holiday on the calendar, but backing up data and keeping your important files safe is definitely worth celebrating. And to help you celebrate, dozens of storage devices are on sale today, including microSD cards for Switch and Steam Deck and internal drives for PS5.
If you need a microSD card that’ll last you for years, look no further than the SanDisk 1TB Extreme that’s now on sale for just $100, down from $300. It’s also fully supported for Switch and Steam Deck, allowing you to quickly load games or transfer them between the card and built-in storage.
If you want something a bit more affordable, you can pick up the SanDisk 400GB Ultra for $290--this is a tremendous deal for a card of this size. And since the Steam Deck supports microSD card hot-swapping, you could buy multiple and save a nice chunk of change compared to purchasing one larger capacity microSD card.
External drives are heavily featured in today’s deals, with both massive desktop solutions and portable drives seeing big price cuts. This includes the WD 20TB Elements Desktop External Hard Drive for $280, down from $506, and the SanDisk 2TB Extreme Pro Portable SSD for $175, down from $230.
And if you’re looking for an internal drive for PS5, consider the Samsung 980 Pro Heatsink 2TB Internal SSD as it’s seeing a $120 price cut.
