Google and Motorola don't seem particularly interested in MicroSD cards these days, but most of the other manufacturers have at least some phones and tablets that still offer expandable storage. If you'd like to pick up a capacious card for your Android device (or anything else), Amazon is offering SanDisk models at a significant discount. This isn't a Gold Box deal, but it is Cyber Monday, so the prices may be good for today only.


If you're a bit low on cash, the 16GB SanDisk card is just $9.99, a solid 50% off the current retail price. For a bit of perspective, 16GB is juuuust big enough to cram every audiobook in Terry Pratchett's Discworld series on there so you don't have to stream it. The 32GB MicroSD card (which retails for $69.99) is on sale for $16.99, a whopping 76% off. That's big enough to carry the entire pirated music collection of a Generation Y college student. And the 64GB card, which can hold all your files plus 10,000 high-resolution image files of your kitchen sink, is on sale for $34.95. That's 65% off the $100 retail price. These are the best prices we've ever seen for these particular cards.

All three of these cards have Class 10 UHS-1 speed certifications, which basically means you can throw them in a high-quality camera and shoot to your heart's content without fearing that they'll slow it down. They're all eligible for Amazon Prime shipping as well, and while they might not fly to your doorstep, they'll get there in a couple of days for free if you're a Prime member. You might want to get an order in quickly: cards could go out of stock at this price.

    would be interesting to see a piece on the price of external memory. if internal memory serves me correctly, in 2005 the price of 1GB was about $100.

    Bought one of these back when they were a gold back deal, 32Gb to be specific. It worked for awhile then completely stopped for no reason. Just a word of caution to all of you, since after reading through some forums I wasn't the only that happened to.

      Just be careful with the transfer duration. The card does get pretty hot. So do not transfer 64Gb of music all in one go. Transfer like 10Gb then another .. and so on. I bought a 32Gb last year. Still holding up wonderfully with no issues. I'm waiting for Sandisk to release a 128Gb version already. I wanted a 64Gb, but I think I'll just wait.

    I'm curious, what can I store on an external SD card with modern day Android? It seems like all data defaults to the internal card, other than the camera.

    "16GB is juuuust big enough to cram every audiobook in Terry Pratchett's Discworld series on there so you don't have to stream it." Thanks for that! You know my requirements for an SD Card!
