The 128GB Lexar Professional 800x VPG-20 CompactFlash Card, model LCF128CRBNA800, is on sale for a limited time for $88 with free shipping at various authorized dealers. They have quantity limits, so if you need multiple units, you can buy from multiple dealers. The $88 is good at Adorama and B&H Photo and Amazon itself.

Speaking of storage, the 32GB PNY USB 2.0 flash drive is on sale for $8 at Amazon by Amazon itself (limit 4) while the 64GB version (limit 4) goes for $15 and the 128GB version (limit 4) goes for $25.

128GB PNY Elite Perf. SDXC for $40 [updated]

The 128GB version has dropped to $40 (was $38), sold and shipped by Amazon itself with a limit of four per customer. It is in the all-encompassing “Temporarily out of stock” status, so keep that in mind if you need it by a specific date… As you can see, both at the SD and microSD levels, we are seeing a wave of price slides of higher capacity cards (as it is often the case – other things equal)…

UPDATE: the 256GB sale for $75 is over as of 12/6/15 re-check… Last week, the 256GB PNY Elite Performance SDXC was “defeating” the other storage options in its own line-up (32GB to 512GB; UHS-I, U3 up to 95 MB/Sec), going for $75 each. Now there is pushback,

This went up too: Meanwhile the 64GB version remains at $20, with a limit of four per customer…

256GB PNY Elite Performance SDXC for $75 {limit 4}

A PNY memory card sale currently in progress at Amazon (not part of the daily Lightning Deals) includes the 256GB PNY Elite Performance SDXC Class 10 UHS-I, U3 up to 95 MB/Sec, model P-SDX256U395-GE, for $75 with free shipping, with a limit of four per customer.

128GB PNY Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive for $25 [also PNY and Sandisk Memory Card sales]

Storage and backups on the go, the USB flash drives can be. The 128GB PNY Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive, model P-FD128TBOP-GE, is currently on sale for $25 at Amazon by Amazon itself. Limit one per customer. If you try to adjust the quantity in the shopping cart, the shopping cart will grab you by the ear 🙂 The usual free shipping terms apply (2-day Prime or with a $35+ non-Prime). This is standard size USB flash drive.

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.

In other storage related sales, Amazon has a sale of 15 Sandisk products featuring SSDs, SD, microSD cards and flash drives (both regular and wireless).

They are elementproofs with a 10 year warranty.

There’s also the previously mentioned 128GB microSDs for $40. In an ideal world all these would have been rounded up in a single post, but we are now entering the Chaos and Disorder of Black Friday season 🙂

128GB Samsung and PNY microSDXC cards for $40 ea

And now we resume our countdown to the madness, posting deals here, while in parallel updating the Black Friday Ads breakdown.

+ 128GB Corsair USB 3.0 Slider Flash drive for $38 (limit 5) or 64GB for $20 (limit 3)

UPDATE: oops, I forgot to add this one to the list, the 200GB Sandisk Ultra microSDXC is on sale for $100 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself (limit 5) and also at Adorama. It comes with a full SD adapter. Interesting that they went from 128GB to 200GB instead of 256GB.

256GB PNY Elite Performance UHS-I U3 SDXC for $80

The 256GB SDXC memory cards are becoming more and more mainstream in terms of bang for the buck, especially compared to the 512GB which are early-adopter price-levels. So the 256GB PNY Elite Performance UHS-I U3 SDXC, model P-SDX256U395-GE, is on sale for $80 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon herself with a limit of four per customer… It has the same price per GB as the 128GB version which goes for $40, and the 64GB which goes for $20.

256GB PNY Elite SDHC card for $70 after two mail-in rebates

This promotion requires the submission of TWO mail-in rebates. If you haven’t ejected after reading the previous sentence, Tigerdirect is offering the 256GB PNY Elite Performance SDHC memory card for $70 after two mail-in rebates. This is sold along with McAfee’s Multi-Access Security Software as a bundle. The McAfee is a separate box, it’s not on the memory card. You have a $10 MIR for the memory card and a $60 on the McAfee software. So what’s happening is McAfee is subsidizing this deal…

The card goes for $100 after the $10 MIR on its own at Tigerdirect and $110 at Amazon.

Funny how once upon a time we were agonizing over 64MB Smartmedia cards and 2GB vs 4GB SDHC cards. Now we have 256GB cards! On the other hand, talk about a photography disaster if you fill it up with 256GB of photos and it dies on you. Yes, I am a Debbie Downer 🙂
