Aside from battery life, storage limitations are a Nintendo Switch player’s worst enemy. Imagine travelling halfway across the country only to find out you’ve uninstalled your favourite game to make room for something else. Fortunately, there’s a way you can have your cake and eat it, too, as Amazon Prime Day has slashed prices on the 1TB Lexar Play microSDXC card that’s specifically made with the portable console in mind.

First, you’ll need to sign-up to Amazon Prime to take advantage of this deal because it’s only available to subscribers. If you’re a first-timer, you can always use the free trial and ditch the subscription once Prime Day’s run its course without paying a dime. Just remember that it’s on auto-renew by default and will charge your connected card once the free month’s over.

The Prime Day deal takes the Lexar Play 1TB down to just $62.99, a 52% drop from its original triple digit price tag. Since you’re a subscriber, it’ll arrive on your doorstep the very next day and it’s as easy as popping it into the slot underneath the kickstand.

To put in perspective just how big of a capacity 1TB is, it’s more than 31 times larger than the Nintendo Switch’s internal 32GB storage, and the Lexar is just as fast. Maxing it out will take a lot of work, because there’s enough room for pretty much all of Nintendo’s first party games and then some.


The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Breath of the Wild, Link’s Awakening, Super Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart Deluxe 8 Deluxe, Animal Crossing New Horizons, Luigi’s Mansion 3, and all 15 of the Switch’s Pokemon games collectively only amounts to around 151GB. That’s just 15% of this Lexar Play 1TB. Bonkers!

Amazon Prime Day deals are time-limited and tend to sell out quickly. Don’t wait until the very end of the event in a couple of hours, because there might not be any left.
