In the past, Amazon Prime Day has brought a number of good storage deals and this year is much the same. If you’re a Prime member in need more digital space (that’s not in the cloud) for your documents, photos, video games and other information, you’ll probably be able to find a decent deal in this shopping event. But instead of sifting through all of them on your own, we’ve gathered the storage deals we believe to be the best of the best in the list below.

Samsung EVO Select microSDXC card (256GB) - $27.99

If you want a thumb drive that also works with iPhone, the 256GB model of SanDisk’s iXpand Flash Drive Go is on sale for $56. While not the lowest it’s ever been, it’s a good sale on a versatile (and compact) accessory. It fits both USB-A and Lightning devices so you can use it to offload documents, photos and more from your laptop as well as your iPhone.

Crucial’s MX500 NAND SATA drive (1TB) is down to $92 for Prime Day, which is a new all-time low. This is a rare deal because this SSD in particular doesn’t fall below $100 often. It’s a standard 2.5-inch SSD that will serve both laptops and desktops well, so now’s the time to pick it up if you’re in need of more storage.

WD Gaming Drive (PS4, 4TB) - $92.90

WD’s 4TB Gaming Drive is a great value at this Prime Day-price of $93. This works specifically with PlayStation 4, making it a good investment if you plan on keeping that console for a while longer. If you going to invest in the PlayStation 5 (or one of the new Xbox consoles for that matter), you’re better off getting a smaller, faster SSD.

That’s about $6 more than its all-time-low price, but it remains a good deal for photographers and videographers looking for a fast and reliable card with a decent amount of space. If you can sacrifice speed, Lexar’s 1667x SDXC card with 256GB of space is on sale for $53 as well.
