Increase your Nintendo Switch video game storage with these excellent Amazon Prime Day deals.
The Nintendo Switch is a modern marvel, but on-board storage space is limited to a mere 32GB. Fortunately, the Switch supports the microSD memory card standard, making it easy to bump up the space available for games downloaded from the Nintendo eShop. Unfortunately, larger size microSD cards can be expensive.
Well, the good news is that Amazon is offering big discounts on tiny microSD cards as part of its annual Prime Day event. A range of capacities are on offer, right up to 512GB. Our pick is the SanDisk 400GB microSDXC card, which is priced at a very tempting $44.99 in the US, and £47.99 in the UK.
400GB is more than enough to store a huge selection of games, meaning you don’t have to free up space every few months. And with the Nintendo Switch Lite on the way, it’s a good choice if you want to have a completely digital video game library.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
