If you're looking for a big bargain today, Cyber Monday, be sure to check out Amazon. Of course, there are great deals on laptop computers, books and gifts for everyone on your list.

But Amazon is also slashing the price of one of its most useful, though intangible, products by 92%. Yes, 92% and it's not just for Cyber Monday.

We've been telling you about the cloud. Basically, you store your photographs, videos and files onto secure servers owned by other companies, whether it's Amazon, Microsoft, Google, Dropbox or several others.

Usually for a fee, you can save quite a bit of your computer files, either to backup up your photos, videos and documents, just in case your computer crashes, and you lose everything. Or just save your files to the cloud, then free up space on your smartphone, tablet and computer by deleting the files you've saved to the cloud.

However, not all cloud services are the same. Google Photos and others, for instance, compress some of your pictures, which might affect the quality of your images. And Microsoft has been decreasing how much you can save to its OneDrive.

But, if you can spare $5, Amazon Cloud Drive is offering unlimited storage for one year. (Regular price is $54.99.) Amazon says it'll never "change or reduce the resolution of your images."

With Amazon Cloud Drive, not only can you save files to its secure server, you can also set it up to auto-save your photos. So, you can free up space on your devices without losing quality on an unlimited number of saved photos for $5? That's a pretty good deal.

Note: After one year, the price for unlimited storage goes up to $60.
