The 256GB Elite SDXC goes for $80, while the 128GB for $45, the 64GB for $23, the 32GB for $13, the 16GB for $8. So the bang for the buck is in capacity order, 256GB “wins”. Free shipping with orders of $49+ unless a particular card is participating in a free shipping promotion (eg the 1286GB Elite SDXC).

64GB Sony SDXC for $15 or 32GB for $8 or 128GB for $35 [the up to 70MB/s models]

More memory card action now, the 64GB Sony Class 10 UHS-1 SDXC (up to 70MB/s model SF64UY2/TQ) is on sale for $15 with a limit of 30 per customer at Amazon by Amazon itself, while the 32GB version goes for $8 (limit 30 as well). Meanwhile the 128GB version goes for $35 (same limit).

And to think that once upon a time we thought a 32MB Smartmedia card could hold so many pictures 🙂

Speaking of storage, here’s a few other ones buzzing around:
+ 128GB PNY microSDXC for $30 (“defeats” other options in its own lineup)
+ 128GB PNY USB 3.0 Flash Drive for $25

The usual free shipping terms apply. Free 2-day for Prime members (remember you can get some digital credits or Prime pantry credits if you select slower shipping). Non-Prime members get free shipping with an order total of $49 or more in eligible items, or if your order contains at least $25 in books (I don’t remember if used books fulfilled by Amazon count towards the limit).

64GB Samsung EVO element-proof microSDXC w/adapter for $18 (limit 3)

If you have some of the newer smaller cameras that take microSD cards or use other non-camera cameras (smartphones, action cams, etc), and like the idea of element-proofness in memory cards (Water proof, Temperature Proof, X-Ray proof, Magnetic proof), the 64GB Samsung EVO Class 10 Micro SDXC Card with full size SD Adapter (up to 48/MB/s, model MB-MP64DA/AM) is on sale again for $18~ with a limit of three per customer at Amazon by Amazon itself. A marketplace seller (fulfilled by Amazon) has it for $0.55 less for the more adventurous shoppers. This currently “defeats” all the other options in its own line-up (16GB to 128GB). Note that the prices of this change very often, probably a combination of market-driven price-changes, price-matches, and things like that.

Free shipping if you are a Prime member, or with a order of $49+. Or if your order contains $25+ in books. More details on Amazon’s new free super saver shipping terms.

UPDATE: while we are talking microSDXC cards, the 128GB PNY microSDXC Class 10 UHS-1, model P-SDUX128U160G-GE, is on sale for $35 at B&H Photo (no limits) and Amazon itself (limit 3). Neither has unconditional free shipping. B&H has free shipping with a $49+ order, Amazon with a $49+ order (or if you have $25+ in Books OR if you are a Prime member). Maybe I need to create a free shipping flowchart graphic 🙂 [actually this sounds like a good idea!]

(ENDED) PNY Storage Sale: 256GB Elite SD for $65, 64GB PRO Elite for $25, 128GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive for $20 [14 options]

1TB WD External USB 3.0 Hard Drive with 256-bit AES as low as $52 (volume discount) or $59 (one unit)

I keep preaching about the importance of backups, yet I can’t even recall the last time I did a full proper backup of everything that needs backing up 🙂 With prices continuing to drop, $50 or less is a reasonable price to set for 1TB external hard drives unless you want more advanced features. One such model with more advanced features, optional 256-bit AES hardware encryption, is the 1TB WD My Passport Ultra USB 3.0 Secure Portable Hard Drive which is currently on sale for $59 with free shipping at B&H Photo (expires 2/13/16). But that’s not all. This qualifies for volume discounts. If you buy more than three units, the price drops to $54 per HDD. If you buy 10+ units the price drops to $52 per HDD. The volume discount is only on the black color scheme. The other three colors also go for $59 but they don’t have a volume discount promotion.

This is the first time I recall seeing a Volume Discount at B&H. Here’s an annotated screenshot crop of the above product page to help you locate it if you are not familiar with it:


If you need more, or want to color-code your backups by type (personal, work, landscape, clients, etc), or have gift cards from the holiday season, they are also on sale for $59 each in five colors, with a limit of five per color per customer at Amazon by Amazon itself. No volume discounts at Amazon because rockets are expensive 🙂

Back to B&H Photo, they have two offers on 128GB microSDXC memory cards (with full SD adapters). The 128GB PNY UHS-I U1 C10 (P-SDUX128U160G-GE) goes for $35, while the 128GB Sony UHS-I U1 C10 (SRG1UY2A/TQ) goes for $40. Free shipping if your order total is $49+. You can buy multiple units of each card. Both are limited time offers.

Speaking of PNY, a total of 11 PNY memory cards are on sale at Amazon featuring SD and microSDs. The SDs are 32GB, 64GB, 128GB, 256GB and 512GB.
