Yup. That is EXACTLY how mine was shipped. Just plain stupid on Newegg's part.

HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE Packaging. I don't rag too much on a company but the packaging here was terrible (I've purchased many things from Newegg in the past). This drive was in a smaller HD box surrounded by a bunch of brown newspaper in a larger box. Not very secure. But here is the kicker - the box where the HD was actually in had the two black pieces to be used as support but the box was too big! So, when I opened the box the black pieces were not buffering the hard drive and just floating around! What good do the black plastic buffers do when the box is too big. You have to be kidding me. I'm extremely disappointed in Newegg on this one. Extremely.
Even if the drive checks out alright (I will test it) the confidence I have of ever buying a drive again from Newegg is gone.
I don't get it, I really don't.

This is why I dont shop at newegg.
Fernando: Hi, my name is Fernando. How may I help you?
Me: This was just $109.99 yesterday. Why the price increase in the middle of the promotion?
Fernando: Hello. I'd be happy to help you with that. We apologize for the inconvenience, Please kindly note that our price including all promotions are managed in real time and we do not offer any sort of price protection. Due to the constant fluctuation of prices in this industry, the cost of our inventory is changing regularly. Items costs on our website reflect this, as they are adjusted daily. Our product pricing is determined by our Marketing and Purchasing departments collaboratively due to various circumstances.
Me: Kind of defeats the benefit of the promo
Fernando: We apologize for the inconvenience. The promotion works for 2/14 and 2/15 but the item price is managed in real time. We do apologize for the inconvenience.
Me: Yea, but the price increase brings it to the same price it was before the promo. Maybe someone should pass that on to your Marketing department that its not really a promo if you just raise the price and eliminate the incentive.

|Fireguyy||That was short lived...Crappy practice to raise prices during the middle of a promotion IMO. Promo not worth it now.|

Thanks for the tip on Amazon - JustinG1160

Promo code is for a straight $12.50 off the order total. So it's only going down to $112.49 for me. Screenshot .
Looks like Amazon is price matching the 98.99, though!
