Cyber Monday 2021 Storage Deals

When people think of Cyber Monday, they’re not often thinking about grabbing an awesome new external hard drive or a fantastic deal on an SD card. But, digital storage options are plentiful during the holiday shopping season, and the discounts are often steep.

No matter what kind of storage you need, there’s certainly a great deal for you. We’ve sifted through the deals to find some of the best for you.

Solid State Drives (SSDs)

Solid state drives, or SSDs, are one of the best storage methods around, but they’re also more expensive than hard drives. SSD prices have been dropping over the years, though, and the Cyber Monday sales on them are especially great.

SanDisk 2TB Extreme Portable SSD

SanDisk's external SSD is great to take on the go. The beefy 2TB model is also over half off at Amazon for Cyber Monday!

Hard Disk Drives (HDDs)

If you need to backup your data, an external hard disk drive (HDD) is your best bet. You can get a lot of storage for cheap, especially during Cyber Monday, and partition it for any sort of data you want. During this time of the year, you can get multiple terabyte-sized HDDs at bargain prices. Don’t miss out!

If you’re wondering which drive to get, our best external HDD roundup can get you started.

WD Easystore 5TB External Hard Drive

Western Digital’s products are often on sale at Best Buy, but you rarely see such deep discounts unless it’s Cyber Monday. Get a 5TB Easystore hard drive for just $90, and you’ll have plenty of space for backing up your PC.

Network-Attached Storage (NAS)

NAS, or network-attached storage devices, are really great for things like Plex, or to easily share data in a centralized network. Being a bit of a specialized piece of tech, there aren’t a lot of Cyber Monday deals on NASes.

However, the WD My Cloud Home Duo 12TB is $70 off at Best Buy, bringing the already affordable NAS down to just $480. If you’re interested in other NAS models, check out our best NAS buying guide.

Flash Drives and MicroSD Cards

Flash drives and SD cards aren’t the most expensive storage out there, and they’re often on sale. However, you can get even deeper discounts on these helpful, portable storage devices during Cyber Monday, so it’s a great time to take advantage and stock up!

When it comes to SD cards, you often want to aim for a MicroSD card, as opposed to a normal-sized one. MicroSD cards take to be compatible with more devices and also come with adapters to use as regular-sized SD cards to boot.

SanDisk Ultra Plus 256GB MicroSD

SanDisk is the biggest name for SD cards, and this Ultra Plus MicroSD will work perfectly with smartphones, cameras, Nintendo Switches, and more for just $28.
