(ENDED) 256GB PNY USB 3.0 Flash Drive for $48 w/free S&H

This offer expired… On the storage front, the official Best Buy store is offering the new condition 256GB PNY Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive for $48 with free shipping (or free store pickup) with a limit of 10 units per customer.

128GB SanDisk Ultra Dual USB 3.0 and micro-USB Flash Drive for $27.78

Limit 30 units per customer with the usual free shipping terms. One side is full size USB 3.0, the other is micro USB. Of interest if you have phones/tablets/2-in-1s/etc that support OTG on the micro-USB input. If you don’t need the dual input, you can get better prices with standard flash drives. Note that only one side is active, you can’t use it as a “bridge” between two devices (as far as I can tell).

256GB Lexar JumpDrive S57 USB 3.0 Flash Drive for $55 w/free S&H

Ideally I would prefer to organize all the storage-related offers in a single round-up but the offers come at all times and from all directions, it’s a bit of a herding cats type of thing, since some of them expire quickly.

Speaking of storage, the brand new 256GB Lexar USB 3.0 Flash Drive (JumpDrive S57) is now in-stock and shipping, going for $55 with free shipping at B&H Photo and Amazon by Amazon itself.

128GB PNY Turbo Attaché 4 USB 3.0 Flash Drive for $26

PS: with “USB-C” becoming more prevalent, you may see more listings mentioning products as “USB Type A” which is the standard USB size found in desktops/laptops. Everything you want to know on the USB format at Wikipedia. As with everything done by committee, there are goofy things, like USB 3.0 is also known as USB 3.1 First Generation 🙂

64GB Lexar JumpDrive S50 USB 2.0 Flash Drive for $8 [limit 3]

They are almost giving these away, the 64GB Lexar JumpDrive S50 USB 2.0 Flash Drive, in purple, model LJDS50-64GABNL, is on sale for $8 at Amazon by Amazon itself. Limit three per customer with the usual free shipping terms. This particular line is color-coded, so the purple is 64GB, the green is 32GB, the teal is 16GB, the carrot is 8GB. The 64GB beats them all in price, let alone GB/$. This is not a lightning deal, so expiration date unknown/market-driven.

128GB Samsung BAR USB 3.0 Flash Drive for $30

If you like your USB flash drives to have metal casing and a keyring (because Samsung), the 128GB Samsung BAR USB 3.0 Flash Drive, model MUF-128BA/AM, is on sale for $30 at Amazon by Amazon itself (limit three per customer; usual S&H terms) and Beach Camera on eBay (no limits) and NewEgg Business (no limits)… The 64GB goes for $18…

If you prefer the 32GB version, it goes for $9 with free shipping by Best Buy on eBay.

PS: for the microUSB OTG to work on your phone/tablet, your device must support it both in hardware and software.

PS2: as far as I know you cannot use this as a direct bridge, I think only one side can be active at any time, but I haven’t tested all options with all devices.

USB Flash Drive Roundup: 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive for $20, Tiny Ones for more

Tiny USB flash drives are all the more useful these days with USB OTG and smaller slimmer laptops, which brings us to Lexar’s answer to this genre, their 128GB Lexar JumpDrive S45 USB 3.0 Flash Drive, model LJDS45-128ABNL, going for $27 at Amazon by Amazon itself.

Transcend is in the game too, their 64GB Transcend Jetflash 710 USB 3.0, model TS64GJF710S, going for $24 at Amazon by Amazon itself in silver and slightly more in gold. The 32GB goes for $12.50, and the 16GB goes for $8. The gold color schemes cost slightly more.

If you don’t need the smaller form factor and instead prefer more conventional flash drives, the 128GB PNY Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive (P-FD128TBOP-GE) goes for $20 at the Staples website with a limit of ten per customer. Free store pickup or free shipping if you are a Staples Rewards member (free to join).

On the other hand, if you prefer a Flash Drive that solves the Indecision 2016 problem, the 128GB SanDisk Ultra Dual USB Drive 3.0 (model SDDD2-128G-G46) goes for $30. One side is USB 3.0 full size, the other side is micro-USB, so you can access the storage from either side (but not both at the same time, it’s not a “data bridge”).

128GB PNY Elite X USB 3.0 Flash Drive for $25 (limit 5)

128GB Samsung USB 3.0 Flash Drive Fit for $36.50

Sometimes Samsung forgets to turn off the copy machine during product design that they end up copying the name too. Case in point, Sandisk calls their tiny USB flash drives Ultra Fit, so Samsung felt compelled to calls their “Fit” too 🙂

Joking aside, there is a sale, the 128GB Samsung USB 3.0 Flash Drive Fit, model MUF-128BB/AM, with Water proof, Shock proof, magnet proof, temp proof, and X-ray proofness and a 5-year warranty is on sale for $36.50 at Amazon by Amazon itself with a limit of three per customer (usual shipping terms), along with NewEgg (limit 20; free S&H) and if they run out, it goes for $29 with free shipping at Adorama.

These can be really handy when you don’t want the flash drives to protrude, eg laptops, front of desktops, media players, phone/tablet USB-OTG connections, etc. On the other hand, these are easier to lose because of their size 🙂
