Storage is getting ever smaller and ever cheaper and on Black Friday there will be plenty of options to fulfill your digital storage needs for even less. Hard drives, solid state drives and memory cards will all feature in considerable discounts. And the best news is that most can be purchased without having to battle the crowds on Friday or even line up in the early hours of the morning.
Even better, a lot of deals are already available.
WD 2TB My Passport Ultra External Hard Drive (69.99, Walmart)
Weighing in at 12 ounces, if you want a high amount of storage to take anywhere on the go, then this deal is among the best. Available at the cheapest price of $89.99 elsewhere, Walmart will have this 2TB hard drive available for just $69.99 in store starting at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day.
SanDisk Pixtor Advanced 64Gb microSDXC ($24.99, Best Buy)
While many of Best Buy’s pre-Black Friday deals can be found for cheaper online, this one is a solid option on offer ahead of time.
