It's that time again, boys and girls: Amazon is having another massive Gold Box sale on SanDisk-brand memory cards and other storage mediums. Specifically for mobile devices, the SanDisk Ultra 32GB MicroSD (SDHC) card with a free card reader is just $21.99, a savings of 69% off the retail price. The 64GB (SDXC) version of the same card is $42.99, 57% off the retail price of a hundred bucks. Both are currently in stock and qualify for Amazon Prime free shipping. The deals are valid for today, Monday, June 3rd only.

If you've got a more versatile device (or just need some storage for your camera), the SanDisk Extreme SD cards are also on sale. You can pick up a 32GB Class 10 card for $30.99, a 64GB Class 10 SDXC card for $58.99, or a whopping 128GB Class 10 SDXC for $129. Between them, the 64GB card offers the most savings at $141, or 71%. If the prices on these standard SD cards seem high, remember that Class 10 has incredibly fast read and write speeds, ideal for digital SLR and video cameras.

Other general deals include flash drives for up to 67% off, and some pretty sweet deals on SanDisk's SSD computer drives as well - their 480GB SSD is just $309, a savings of 56%. (Yes, I know these aren't really Android-related. Good deals, nonetheless.) Click this link for the whole range of discounted storage, or the individual MicroSD and SD card links below. Once again, these prices are good for today only.

    I want to buy one so bad, But all these issues these cards have with samsung devices (maybe with other devices as well?), made me think again :/

    • http://circa85.me/ Henree G

      What issues? I've never had an issue since the Vibrant [currently with GS3].

      • Singh

        I bought a 16gb scandisk card for my S3 fromamazon and 6 months down the road, the card started unmounting and mounting on its own. Don't buy scandisk!

        • http://circa85.me/ Henree G

          Damn... you just made me realize something LOL
          That happens to my tablet... it's Sandisk. I didn't know it was the card!

          • Francis Scardino

            lifetime warranty. they will send a new one usually without hassle.

        • enomele

          Sandisk is the standard all the other companies base theyre product on.

    • YoHoJo

      I've heard about all of the issues with these cards and it scared me at first too, but overall there are WAY more positive than negative reviews,which makes me think it might have just been a bad batch of cards.
      I've been using one for over 3 months on my S3 with absolutely no problems at all! I'd go for it :), or if you are truly worried just wait for a sale on a different brand of card, SanDisk seems to have more sales more often, but I've seen others too.

      • HellG

        They are the highest quality/Fastest cards(samsung SDcards are comparable) out there with great discounts on them happening all the time,The problem is that i'm currently in Egypt, And if there's something wrong with the card i rather not send it and pay 30$ minimum for shipping to get another one, But i think i will go for it if i can find it locally, Its sandisk or a brand called "Team" -_-

    • r0lct

      I did have an issue with my Note 2 after months of use that coincided with flashing a new rom. That was fixed with formatting the card.

      However these are only about $6 less than Amazon's normal price (for the 32 GB, I don't think the 64 GB is much more in savings either). So no need to jump on it if you don't need it now.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      I have the 64GB one and a Note II with 0 problems whatsoever.

    • WHO?

      I got mine at Best buy about 3 months back for $64. I thought that was regular price. But evidently according to the post, it must normally cost about $90 through amazon 'Shrug"

      Oh and i have a Note 2. No issues. Now i do have some sandisk 32 gig cards that use to have to be reformatted all the time. But not once on my 64 gig

  • Merri Mogridge

    I got the 32GB one off Amazon UK for €29 a few months ago! Worked out free in the end though due to an error on amazons behalf :) (I got a refund for the package not arriving after about 3 weeks and then the day after the package came.)

    • http://blog.artesea.co.uk/ artesea

      Merri that's not free, that's theft. If you file for lost in post, you are expected to return any items which finally arrive.

      • MasterMuffin

        Oh no, Merri is a criminal CALL THE COPS!

        Sarcasm

      • Merri Mogridge

        An Amazon employee actually told me (In their on-line chat) that if it arrived at a later date I could either keep it or donate it to charity.

        • Merri Mogridge

          "If the original package arrives afterwards, please keep the package with our compliments, as the cost of returning the package is likely to be overly expensive. You may know of a local charity which would benefit from the item." From their follow up email.

          • http://blog.artesea.co.uk/ artesea

            Fair enough, guess like they say the item is too small and cheap to bother with returns. The last item I had go missing the email informed me on what to do if the original arrived before or after the replacement arrived, and a month later a follow up email asking me to confirm that it never arrived.

      • squiddy20

        Basically the same thing happened to me with an album purchase on Google Play Music. I thought there was an error with one of the songs (turns out, it was supposed to be that way), contacted Google Play customer service, and after a few days got a refund. I was surprised to find that the album never disappeared from the online collection, which Google could have done at any point. I guess you'll tell me that's theft too?

      • WHO?

        You could of at least apologized for calling him a thief! lol SMH Some people....

  • Jackster

    I've had that 64 GB card on my shopping list for months but couldn't bring myself to pull the trigger.

    Glad I waited thanks for the tip.

  • Barnassey

    I wouldn't get it. The last sale had a HUGE number of people who got cards that simply die after only a few weeks to few months use.

    • Geoff Johnson

      Mine works great still.

      • enomele

        Yeah, got mine on the last gold box and its still running great. I did have a problem of my GS3 not recognizing it at first but a reformat did it right.

    • squiddy20

      I got one over a year ago during one of these sales (including two 32GB thumb drives at a later date) and it worked flawlessly. I gave it to a friend a few months back since I have a Galaxy Nexus (which doesn't have an SD card slot, so it was just sitting around) and he's never once complained about any issues.

  • Yash Ostwal

    Theres nothing mentioned about the warranty. if theres manufacturer warranty, i'd go ahead!

    • jacktheripper

      I got two of these. One 32Gb, the other 64Gb. My tablet ruined the 32Gb one, and SanDisk sent me back a new one. For free. It's ten year-warranty on SanDisk product. Anyway, my guess is in ten years, those 32 or 64Gb memory cards will be as obsolete as my first PSP memory card with 256Mb storage space is now...

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      If it's a new product, there is always a manufacturer's warranty. How's that even a question?

  • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

    Since I already have the 64GB MicroSD, I picked up the 480GB SSD this time around. The lappy's 160GB has 1GB left, so it'll be happy.

  • DanSan

    purchased the 32GB microSD about a week and a half ago for $25 bucks. not much of a sale on that

  • james kendall

    i have been burned in the past with fake cards etc. you best bet to avoid fake card is to avoid the "frustration free packaging" and pray that the suppler is legit.

  • Samsung Fanboy

    these cards are GARBAGE, don't y'all remember how a few months ago SanDisk issued a statement about how faulty these cards are and was offering to replace them?!

    • Joseph Cascio

      Yes because they would still be selling the faulty ones after replacing them. God fanboys are dumb.

      In related news: I have had my 64GB one for over a year and read write speeds are still great.
