PNY 16 GB Monkey Tail Flash Drives for just $4.99 on Amazon



Amazon has got these PNY 16 GB Monkey Tail Flash Drives for just $4.99.  This pricing applies to the blue and the purple ones only (the other colors cost more).  No quantity limits.
  • Flexible Monkey Tail extends, then returns to its original shape
  • The 16GB Monkey Tail USB 2.0 Flash Drive can hold approximately 2,949 songs
  • Free technical support
  • Compatible with most PC and Mac laptop and desktop computers
  • Shape memory material expands and attaches to backpacks, notebooks and more
This is an Amazon Add-On item, which means that it ships for free with a $25 minimum order if you are an Amazon Prime member (and its price of $4.99 counts towards that $25), or it ships for free with a $49 minimum order if you're not a Prime member.  You can buy multiples of this item to help get you to your $25 or $49 minimum for free shipping.  (Other Amazon Add-On item deals can be found here.)

What do I use flash drives for?  Because flash drives are so physically small and portable but at the same time can hold so much information, they are ideal for data storage.
  • Travel:  this is my main use for portable drives. if I want to take my laptop with me on a plane, but also need a ton of files from my main computer, it takes me about 5 minutes to copy them on to a flash drive and put the drive in my purse.  I can work with the files by just plugging them into my computer, and then bring home the updated versions the same way.  Flash drives were made for travel.
  • Backup:  I have a regular backup drive, but there are certain files (documents, pictures) I'd like to keep multiple safe copies of in different physical locations.  You never know when a disaster like Sandy or a fire or a burglary (all God forbid) may hit you.  We actually have some flash drives tucked away in our safe deposit vault.
  • Music storage:  music files like mp3s are huge and tend to eat up my computer, laptop, iPad and phone storage very quickly.  While I keep the majority in cloud storage, there are a few I like to keep offline, and those are on flash drives.
  • Photos:  ever empty an entire summer's worth of pictures from your iPhone to your PC?  There are a few you'll want to keep on there, but the rest should go into storage.  Also remember that those wedding pictures of your grandparents from the 1940s just aren't going to last forever; scan them into digital form and back them up them on a flash drive.  
  • Documents:  birth certificates, passports, marriage licenses, divorce papers, ketubahs, gets, citizenship papers, court records, even tax returns and receipts, financial records, etc. all should be backed up tucked away on a flash drive.  These are all things that are not easily replaceable.
