Black Friday 2021 Storage Deals

When people think about Black Friday, they don’t often think about getting a new external hard drive or an amazing deal on an SD Card. Digital storage options are abundant during holiday shopping season and often offer steep discounts.

No matter what type of storage you require, there is a great deal available. We have scoured the offers to find the best deals for you.

Solid State Drives (SSDs)

Solid State Drives (or SSDs) are one of the most efficient storage options, but they are also more expensive than hard drives. However, SSD prices have dropped over the years and Black Friday deals on them are particularly great.

  • Samsung 1TB T7 Portable SSD for $110 at Amazon
  • SanDisk 2TB Extreme Portable SSD for $225 at Amazon
  • WD_BLACK 1TB P50 Game Drive SSD for $200 at Amazon

How To Tech

Hard Disk Drives (HDDs)

If you need to back up your data, an external hard drive (HDD), is the best option. Black Friday is a great time to get lots of storage and you can partition it to store any type of data. You can find multiple Terabyte-sized HDDs for bargain prices during this time of year. Do not miss this opportunity!

  • WD 2TB My Passport Ultra Blue for $75 at Amazon
  • WD_BLACK 5TB P10 Game Drive for $130 at Amazon
  • WD Easystore 5TB External Hard Drive for $90 at Best Buy
  • WD 18TB Elements Desktop Hard Drive for $340 at Newegg
    • On 11/26, use code BFFRDY47 to get it for $300

If you are unsure which drive you should get, we have a roundup of the best external HDDs.

Network-Attached Storage (NAS)

NAS is a network-attached storage device that’s great for Plex and to share data in a central network. NASes are a specialized piece, so there are not many Black Friday deals.

However, the WD My Cloud Home Duo 12TB is $70 off at Best Buy, bringing the already affordable NAS down to just $480. You can also check out our top NAS buying guide.

Flash Drives and MicroSD Cards

Flash cards and SD cards don’t have to be the most expensive storage options, but they are often on sale. These handy, portable storage devices are often on sale during Black Friday.

When it comes to SD cards you should aim for a MicroSD card rather than a regular-sized one. MicroSD cards are compatible with more devices, and come with adapters that can be used as regular-sized SD card cards.

  • SanDisk 256GB Ultra Plus MicroSD for $28 at Best Buy
  • Samsung 128GB Pro Endurance for $19 at Amazon
  • SanDisk 256GB Ultra Flash Drive for $35 at Best Buy
  • PNY 256GB Turbo Attache 3 Flash Drive for $24 at Amazon
