Storage Deal: Give your Nintendo Switch a boost with this 256GB MicroSD price drop

Now is the time to finally buy that memory card you’d been holding out on for your Nintendo Switch with this great saving on a 256GB SanDisk Micro SD.

Perfect for boosting the storage capacity on a number of devices, the SanDisk 265GB Micro SD can now be snagged from MyMemory for just £27.99, the cheapest price available right now.

With so many people sniffing out any last in-stock listings for the Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite consoles, it’s fair to say a lot of gaming is going on right now whilst the UK population is staying at home and trying to keep occupied. Whether you’re diving into the loveliness that is Animal Crossing: New Horizons or taking in the battle scenes of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, you’re certainly going to need a bit of extra storage before long.

With both the full-bodied Nintendo Switch and the more compact Nintendo Switch Lite both offering just 32GB of internal storage, you’re bound to hit that cap sooner or later, especially when you consider the aforementioned Breath of the Wild takes up 13.4GB alone.

As well as allowing you to expand your library of video games, inserting a Micro SD into the console will also help it’s overall performance, allowing it to boot up games more quickly, getting you straight to the action.

Of course, if you’re not the proud owner of a Nintendo Switch console, it goes without saying this 256GB MicroSD has its other uses, offering additional storage for compatible gadgets like your digital camera or smartphone.

With the ability to hold photos, video, music and documents, this 256GB SanDisk Micro SD card also offers transfer speeds of up to 100MB/s, allowing you to move your precious files from A to B swiftly. With an A1-rated performance, too, this memory card can boost app launches on your phone for an overall slicker performance from your handset.

Now with £5 shaved off, there’s never been a better time to upgrade the storage capacity on your Nintendo Switch – especially with a summer eShop sale expected to drop fairly soon.
