The Prime Early Access Sale of today enables you to get the most value with a Steam Deck microSD car

Update: Both the UK''s 512GB deal and the United States'' 1TB agreement are no longer available. Boo, however, the 400GB model is now on sale, so I''ve also changed the former with this mid-sized card in the lists below. The otherwise original version of the article is the following:

Today marks the start of Amazons Prime Early Access Sale: a two-day buffet of discounts that are exclusive to Prime members. The SanDisk Ultra, a one-of-a-kind microSD card for the Steam Deck, is on sale in a wide range of capacities, with the 1TB model receiving a more remarkable >50% discount in the United Kingdom as well.

I have tested game loading times on the Ultra next to higher-spec and more-cost microSDs, and it really holds its own despite being more of a budget design. Amazon''s basically-Prime-Day-but-not-called-Prime-Day sale makes it even cheaper, so if you have purchased a Steam Deck recently due to the increase in production speed, it is good to have extra storage space.

SanDisk Ultra 256GB microSD - 17 (was 49) from Amazon UK

SanDisk Ultra 400GB microSD - 40 (was 77) from Amazon UK

SanDisk Ultra 1TB microSD - 95 (was 218) from Amazon UK

SanDisk Ultra 400GB microSD - $32 (was $70)

SanDisk Ultra 512GB microSD - $44 (was $100) from Amazon US

For my money, I found the Samsung Pro Plus, the only other Steam Deck-ready microSD card you can get, on Amazon UK. Only the 256GB version, and although its arguably worth the extra 2 over the 256GB SanDisk Ultra, there is also a need for PC storage. The Steam Deck, however, is still a PC, which fills up quickly if you are installing modern 3D games on it. Aim for a 512GB or 1TB card if you can, especially

These deals are only available to those who have a Amazon Prime account. By signing up for Primes a 30-day free trial, you may get around that, all of the benefits of a full membership, but remember to cancel before those 30 days are up if you don''t want to maintain paying for a regular subscription.
