- 5TB Portable Hard Drive for $90 or $95 $90 for Costco members, or add 5% for non-members.
We used this hard drive for backups of photos while traveling, and it performed faster than other portable hard drives we used (100 megabytes per second write speed) when plugged into a computer's USB 3.0 port.

- Western Digital Blue 1TB NVMe SSD for $75 (expired)
$84, and code BCMAY22464 applies $9 off in the cart.
Beats the previous best price by about $8, and normally sells for around $90.
NVMe SSDs are used in the latest laptop and desktop PCs, and generally perform better than the larger Serial-ATA (SATA) SSDs.
Alienware 38" Curved IPS Monitor AW3821DW for $1,100.
Normally sells for at least $1,400.
This IPS 3840x1600 144Hz panel has a 2300R curved screen meant for viewing up to 7.5 feet away, a DisplayPort 1.4 port, 2 HDMI ports, and a USB 3.2 Gen 1 hub.
Western Digital Elements 12TB USB External Hard Drive for $250, and code EMC2AAZAA27 applies $50 off.
That comes out to $16.67 per TB, still shy of $15 per TB back in May, but one of the best deals today.
- 12TB External/Desktop Hard Drive $200 (expired)
Western Digital Elements 12TB USB External Hard Drive for $250, and code EMC2AZ92467 applies $50 off.

- Samsung 980 Pro 2TB M.2 SSD for $342 (expired)
Samsung 980 Pro M.2 2TB Gen 4 NVMe SSD for $380, and code SS2AZ9A928 drops the price to $342.
This is a significant price drop from the $399 price two months ago.
Only some of the very latest desktop and laptop computers have Gen 4 compatibility.
With Gen 4, this SSD will provide the best performing reads and writes available today.
Some laptops may have Gen-4 compatibility, but may ship with a Gen-3 SSD.
Our new Thinkpad X1 laptop is Gen-4 compatible, but came with a Gen-3 SSD.
We opened the bottom of the laptop and replaced the SSD with this Samsung 980 Pro 2TB, and love the incredibly fast performance boost.
If you want a M.2 SSD but your computer does not support Gen-4, a quality Gen-3 SSD may be a better choice than a Gen-4.
For example, a Samsung 970 EVO Plus 2TB uses MLC cells which could give better longevity than the TLC used in the 980 Pro.
- Seagate 5TB Portable Hard Drive $102 (expired)
Seagate Backup Plus 5TB Portable Hard Drive for $102.
Normally $110 and up.
This had been a good backup drive for us.
The 5TB capacity stores a lot of data, and transfers were quick.
We measured the rate at over 90 megabytes per second, which was twice the performance of other small, large capacity, portable hard drives we used.
If speed is more important than capacity and price, look at an external SSD or a large capacity USB-C flash drive.
Those will cost more than the 2 cents per GB price of the Seagate.
