In the past, Amazon Prime Day has been a boon for storage deals. Over the past few years, we’ve seen the online retailer sell hundreds of flash drives, microSD cards, internal and portable SSDs, and more for its members-only shopping event. This year is no different, with devices from Crucial, SanDisk, Samsung and others being heavily discounted for Prime members. Now is a good time to buy a portable drive for the upcoming school year, an extra SD card for your DSLR, or an expensive internal drive for your PS5, even though they’re a lot cheaper than usual. Here are the best storage deals we’ve found for Prime Day 2022.
