We’re not well into the second day of 2019’s Prime Day sale, and it’s time to get serious about storage. Sure, it might not be as exciting as a hot dog toaster or a giant inflatable unicorn, but internal and external storage drives and USB flash storage drives tend to get pretty good discounts for Amazon Prime Day and this year is no exception. 

Below you’ll find products from SanDisk, WD, Seagate, LaCie with the biggest price drops — some offer savings up to as much as 65%. They’re broken into categories to help you find the storage deals you want fast.

If you’re looking from microSD and SD card deals, here are the best ones from SanDisk. Note that Techhnews may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page.

This desktop hard drive is a great choice for any tasks where speed is a priority, and it comes at a fraction of the cost of an SSD with this capacity. The 6TB version is also on sale for 30% off.

This ruggedized, shock-, water- and dust-resistant (IP55-rated) portable SSD is ready to work wherever you are. It’ll work with PCs or Macs and includes a USB Type-C-to-Type-C cable and a Type-C-to-Type-A adapter so you’re all set no matter what connection is available.

This is a whole lotta storage for backing up all kinds files. It’s plug and play for Windows PCs, but can be reformatted for Mac users. This is just a straightforward hard drive, though, so if you need additional features, you’ll have to look elsewhere. The 10TB version is 47% off, too.

Pure storage It’s not a huge discount, but this drive was already incredibly inexpensive, so this just sweetens the deal. Preformatted for Windows, but can be reformatted for Mac. 

This pocket-size drive is drop-resistant up to 2 meters and has a built-in USB cable for fast and easy transfers. Plus, since it’s an SSD, it can do it faster than your average portable hard drive and uses less power.

Another rugged mobile drive with an IP67 rating for water-and dust-resistance, the G-drive claims transfer rates up to 560MB/s via its USB-C connection. That means it’s fast enough to edit video and photo straight from the drive without transferring first to your Mac or PC.

Flash drives

This is a great choice for Android phones with USB-C ports since it supports on-the-go (OTG) transfers. Just plug it into your phone’s USB-C port and move files from your phone to the drive. You can then plug the USB-C connection into your computer or use the slider on top to switch the connection to a USB-A connector.


Like the Ultra Dual Drive except this has a Lightning connector for use with iPhones and iPads instead of USB-C. Need to quickly free up space on your device without storing to the cloud first? Here you go. 

This is just a fast USB 3.0 thumb drive that’s incredibly inexpensive. If you’d rather have two smaller drives as opposed to one large, the 64GB version is available for $8. 


The Ultra Fit is another really inexpensive flash drive. However, while the PNY drive above gives you something to grab onto, this SanDisk is little more than the USB connector. That makes it better for keeping it constantly connected to a laptop, game console or car stereo.
