Seems like a price mistake. For the last 2 days, (presumably for Cyber Monday), they had this drive listed at $113.99 - $34 instant savings = $79.99. That deal expired at midnight PST on 11/27, and then all of a sudden the $34 is coming off of $79.99. Something was coded wrong?
Staples is famous for screwing stuff up, usually a mid-week coupon that results in a free/nearly-free product, and hurriedly fixing it within a day or two. I suspect the product page will just disappear from the website. Make use of this price while you can.
EDIT: There are a few other Seagate drives with significant discounts, maybe they really are trying to clear some inventory. Whatever the case, I would print the page and get to the store ASAP if considering an in-store PM.
If you ordered this drive over the weekend at $79.99, ask for a price adjustment through their online chat.
I ordered this drive, plus the FAR kaspersky virus software software so I could use the 15 off 100 coupon code on Sunday. Asked for price adjustment this morning via chat and got $36 credited back to me, brining my final (after rebates) price of the hard drive down to around $37!
Just an update guys... I reserved 3 of these at 06:15 and picked them up 30 minutes ago right after the store open. Each rang at $129.99 at the register, I showed them the reservation email I got from them and the store manager had to do price match. Minor inconvenience but definitely worth your time.
I haven't tried picking up my reserved one yet, but I went to a store closer to me that showed they had it in stock. After them making a phone call, they wouldn't honor the $45.99 price; they said it was a cyber Monday deal that rolled over and is only valid for online purchases/reservations. So if you reserved it the GM said it should be good at that price.
I saw this at like 4 AM and didn't realize how good of a deal it was because I so so tired
I had it in my cart and didn't order because somehow I was thinking my 3TB for $100 off of Amazon was just as good of a deal
