Save on Nintendo Switch storage with Amazon Prime Day

Increase your Nintendo Switch storage with these excellent Amazon Prime Day deals.



Nintendo Switch console and games

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.

Here are the prices currently listed on Amazon for the SanDisk range, all of which are Switch compatible. Head over to Amazon in the US or UK to grab one while stocks last.

  • SanDisk 64GB Ultra microSDXC – $12.99/£5.73
  • SanDisk 128GB Ultra microSDXC – $19.09/£14.39
  • SanDisk 200GB Ultra microSDXC – $31.99/£20.29
  • SanDisk 256GB Ultra microSDXC – $Sold Out/£27.99
  • SanDisk 400GB Ultra microSDXC – $44.99/£47.99
  • SanDisk 512GB Ultra microSDXC – $99.99/£134.99

If you are looking for some Nintendo Switch game recommendations, we’re here to help. Infinite Fall’s Night in the Woods is one of our all-time favourites, as is Team Cherry’s marvellous Hollow Knight. We are also extremely fond of Gris, American Fugitive, Gato Roboto, Ape Out, Downwell, Pikuniku, and, of course, Wonder Boy The Dragon’s Trap. You can also stay up to date with the latest Nintendo Switch games via the Thumbsticks new releases page.


If you don’t have Amazon Prime, you could always sign up for a month’s free trial. Here’s a link for the UK trial, and here’s one for the US.

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.
