There is also a printable $25 off $75 in store coupon floating around. Not sure if it is the same price in store or not.

If something is on slickdeals you got to jump when you see it. Being available for over 12 hours after posting isn't actually fast.

Looks like to 2TB is available.

The best deal on drives is definitely through Staples with an Amazon price match and a $30 off $150 online coupon. It's very easy to do.

First, purchase your $30 off $150 Staples coupon from ejunkie or eBay. Usually costs around $2

Next, go to staples website and order your drive using the coupon. The Seagate Go Flex is $179.99 so your total after coupon should be $149.99. Keep your order # handy.

Finally, open a customer service chat window or call the Staples customer service line. Tell the rep that you want to do a price match from Amazon on an item you just purchased. Give your order number and the rep will find the item on Amazon. They will then refund you the difference from the ORIGINAL Staples price. So if you purchased the item for $179.99 and Amazon has it for $139.99, the rep will refund $40 to your credit card. Final price after coupon = $109 + tax

PS: I was able to do this with several times and got great deals. I purchased a 128GB Crucial M4 for $110, and an Antec Three Hundred case of $25.

Not sure what drive is inside though.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

Did this back before christmas got two 3TB drives for 85 shipped each but I called before I placed the order and they did it all over the phone without having to do the refund part.

Newegg has 2.5TB WD refurbs for $120. You're just below the $50/TB at that price.

That sucks. I picked up one of those a year or so ago and it contains a Samsung F4. I like the F4's. I also like the overall enclosure. Case is sturdy metal and as solid as they come, and have had 0 issues with it. Those fantom green drives are def worth it to use as intended, nevermind to steal the drive out of.

$89 for a Green 2TB is not a bad price.
