EU: [SDXC]: 128GB Ultra for 20e, 64GB Extreme for 16e, [microSDXC]: 128GB Samsung for 23e

Another wave of price drops in name-brand memory card prices at Amazon Germany, with the following low prices as of the time of writing:

+ 64GB Sandisk Extreme SDXC for 16 euro

+ 128GB Sandisk Ultra SDXC for 20 euro

+ 128GB Samsung EVO Select microSDXC for 23 euro

+ the above three have a limit of up to five cards of each option per shopping cart

With more memory cards added to the arsenal, more memory card readers are not a bad idea, this USB-mountable Transcend RDF5 USB 3.0 card reader is back down to 7 euro in the black color scheme. It has two dedicated slots, one for SD* and one for microSD*…

EU: 128GB Sandisk Ultra SDXC for 20 euro

Amazon Germany is back with more Sandisk memory card sales! These are limited time offers but they are not tied to the daily deals [which occur in the German time zone], so the expiration date/time is unknown to me…

We start with the SDXC memory cards, their new condition 128GB Ultra SDXC (C10, UHS-I, up to 80MB/sec) is on sale for just 20 euro. This is sold and shipped by Amazon itself and it is available in your choice of frustration-free packaging or standard packaging. The limit is up to five per customer at the sale price. Not sure if you can buy five of each packaging, or five total.

Next up we move to the microSD cards. The new condition 200GB Ultra microSDXC (A1, C10, U1) goes for 33 euro with up to five per customer. This defeats the 128GB for 23 euro in terms of $/GB. You pay less than 50% more, but you get more than 50% in extra storage…

Or if you can to solve for a lower price, the new condition 128GB Transcend microSDXC (C10, UHS-I) goes for the very specific price of 18.79 euro per customer…

MicroSD is not just for smartphones any more as the number of digital cameras (including a few iLCs eg Panasonic GX800) take the microSD cards. Most of them include full-size SD adapters, or you probably already have a drawer full of them from previous memory card purchases…

Saturday: PNY SD cards (64GB to 512GB), USB Flash Drives, 512GB microSDXC cards

It’s time to ride the Pony in the Amazon USA Gold Box. Good until Saturday at 11:59pm pacific time (or earlier if they sell out) they are running a sale on select PNY storage products including:

+ various USB flash drives

+ limit three units per individual product per customer

EU: 256GB Sandisk Extreme PRO SDXC (U3, V30, UHS-I, C10) for 60 euro

Amazon Germany is back with another Sandisk sale, this time the theme is 256GB memory cards and storage as follows:

+ 256GB Extreme PRO UHS-I U3 V30 C10 for 60 euro
+ 256GB Ultra for 45 euro
+ 256GB Cruzer Ultra Fit flash drive for 45
+ 480GB Internal SSD Plus III for 58 euro

This is a limited time sale but not a lightning deal, so expiration time is unknown…

128GB Transcend SDXC C10 U3 V30 for $20

If you are a fan of Transcend memory cards, their new condition 128GB Transcend SDXC C10 U3 V30, model TS128GSDC300S-E, is currently going for $20 per card at Amazon by Amazon itself. You can buy as may as you like at this price…

If you are not a fan of Transcend, the 128GB Sandisk Ultra goes for $22 by Amazon itself but it is not U3/V30…

EU: 64GB Sandisk Extreme SDXC (V30, U3) for 15 euro

While price-checking yesterday’s post, a bang for the buck option surfaced, it’s part of a Sandisk sale at Amazon Germany {not a lightning deal, so expiration time unknown) that has the new condition 64GB Sandisk Extreme SDXC card going for 15 euro and you can buy as many as you like. This is NOT a PRO version but it is V30, U3, C10, etc.

Once again, in a turn of conventional wisdom, Amazon Germany defeats the Amazon USA website where it goes for just under $20; however the 128GB goes for $35 in the USA Amazon but 36 euro at Amazon Allemagne…

EU: 256GB Sandisk Extreme PRO V30 SDXC for 60 euro

This is not a lightning deal, so I have no clue when the sale ends, but as of the time of writing, Amazon Germany is offering the new condition 256GB Sandisk Extreme PRO SDXC card (U3, V30, C10, up to 95MB/s) for 60 euro with free shipping in Germany. Limit up to five per customer at the sale price. This price currently soundly defeats the other storage options in this line…

In contrast this card goes for $88 at Amazon USA

UPDATE: this is part of a Sandisk sale (not a lightning deal) at Amazon Germany that also has the 512GB version of the PRO card going for 170 euro {that’s the premium of being the highest capacity available).

Sat: PNY storage sale with SDXC, 512GB microSD, Flash Drives
