If they are sold out in the store (which is what happened to me); go into the store and have them order it for either FS to your home or to the staples store; then have them select Pay at Store; and you can use all of the coupons listed above. They are stack-able.

Reason: USB is at 3.0 .. correction
not sure. most of the time those coupons are online or phone orders only. which means the 20% and $5 off coupons listed above are In store only. so, unless you can persuade the CSR to take them, probably not.
It looks like the elements drive is $200 and usb 2.0. The my book essential is $140 and usb 3.0.
I believe the consensus is that the elements drives hold up better than than the my book externals.
Edit: Also seems to me that the $5 off coupon should not apply because the my book essential drive already has an 'instant savings' of $10. The fine print on the $5 off coupons specifically excludes 'instant savings' items.
Got mine at my local Staples for $116 including tax. Had to ask a rep to find it though cause everything is in the back. Great deal if you asked me, even though the USB 3.0 didn't really make a difference. Thanks for the post!
I just ordered the WD Elements 3TB USB 2.0 online for $169.99, used a $25 off $75 coupon from eBay (costing me $2.25), and got Staples (via online chat) to pricematch Amazon $119.99 (refund $50+tax). The order total was $156.95 + $2.25 (cost of coupon) - $54.12 = $105.08 shipped (incl CA tax).
OP appears to be for Western Digital® My Book® Essential™ 3TB External Hard Drive-USB 3.0 and not the Elements drive that I purchased. Although the Essential drive has USB 3.0, the Elements drive gets better reviews (no WD SmartWare).

Reason: noticed difference between models
