Get more space with a microSD card

I've seen the SanDisk line of microSD cards discounted heavily from time to time, and it's been possible for years to get a good deal. Even so, the 1.5TB card being available for just $88 is a new low, and it's an absolute must-buy for even the most casual gamer who has a Steam Deck or Nintendo Switch. 

Game sizes have continued to get more and more absurd, but 1.5TB easily deals with that issue. For context, that's enough to install Baldur's Gate 3 — one of the most popular games on Steam Deck and one of the best games of 2023 — ten times over. Even if you have a lower-capacity Steam Deck, whatever storage issues you're having will disappear with the most half-hearted effort at being careful with your downloads. 

It's even more of an absurdly good deal if you're using it on a Nintendo Switch, as Nintendo Switch games tend to be a fair bit smaller than games made for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, or Windows PC. The Witcher 3: Complete Edition, which bundles in the main game and all its DLC, takes up about 40GB on Nintendo Switch. With this card, you could install that game 37 times. Seriously, if you upgrade with this card on your Nintendo Switch, you're not going to have space issues anymore without going on the most unhinged eShop spree known to humankind.

The one caveat to all of this is that this deal is only available for Amazon Prime subscribers. If you're not subscribed to Amazon Prime, you won't get as much of a discount, and you'll need to weigh the cost of subscribing again for at least a short while against what savings you'll get from this and other deals.
