Amazon’s deal of the day is all about storage

The Nintendo Switch is almost the perfect video game console, but perhaps the most annoying thing about it (since Nintendo Switch Online gave us cloud saves) is the pitiful 32 GB of internal memory. External storage is pretty much a necessity, especially as downloads become the norm. If your Switch is nearing maximum capacity, you may want to check out today’s Amazon Gold Box deal.

Amazon is discounting a bunch of external storage drives today, including some Sandisk microSD cards. Polygon recommended SanDisk’s microSD cards in our Switch accessories guide, noting that they often go on sale. However, this one-day-only deal is just about the lowest we’ve ever seen Sandisk’s highest capacity drives.

A 200 GB microSD is on sale for $34.99 (usually $58.45) and a 256 GB model is going for $51.99 (usually $149.99). The highlight of the sale, though, is the massive 400 GB microSD, which until recently was the largest microSD on the market. To put it into perspective, the card can fit 28 copies of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which takes up almost half of the Switch’s internal storage. MSRP on this bad boy is $250, though it’s been recently discounted to $130. Today you can pick it up for $99.99.

Flash drives and other external hard drives are also discounted, so you may want to check it out if you have non-Switch storage needs. PC gamers can take advantage of a Logitech peripherals deal happening today as well.

Amazon Gold Box deals end at 12 a.m. PT (3 a.m. ET).
