We've seen our fair share of PS5 SSD deals over the last few months, but the Samsung 980 Pro has never been cheaper than it is today at Amazon. You'll find the 1TB stick available for $164.99 (opens in new tab), down from its original $229.99 MSRP. That's the lowest price we've ever seen on this model, after it previously dropped down to $167.99 - pretty impressive considering this is one of the best PS5 SSDs on the market. 

It is worth remembering that you'll need to find and fix your own heatsink to make the most of this PS5 SSD deal. These aren't particularly expensive - this EZDIY model is just $12.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab), for example, but they can be fiddly to manoeuvre. 

If that doesn't sound like the plug and play solution you were after, there are plenty of PS5 SSD deals that feature heatsink models running right now. You can even find the same Samsung 980 Pro model for $219.99 (was $249.99) at Amazon (opens in new tab). That's $20 over the lowest price we've ever seen for this particular stick, though that $199.99 sales price was particularly impressive when it popped up over Black Friday. 

You'll find both of these PS5 SSD deals just below, but if you're after more gifts for gamers be sure to check out our PS5 gifts guide as well.
