Signing up for store memberships can be a great way to save if you're a frequent shopper, so this deal is a must for any Newegg fan. Groupon has discounted the cost of the store's Premier membership, essentially now offering it for free once you factor in the gift card. The membership gives you free expedited shipping on select items, exclusive deals, free returns, and other benefits.

Looking for a shorter commitment? You can alternatively buy a 6-month membership bundled with a $50 Newegg gift card for just $50. That yields a slightly less impressive savings of $30.

If you don't mind opting for a refurbished unit, this SanDisk iXpand drive is a substantial $35 cheaper than what you'd pay for a new unit elsewhere.

That Lightning and USB 3.0 flash drive is specifically designed for use with iPhone and iPad.

Note that a 90-day A4C warranty applies.
