Newegg has the "refurbished" (server pulls) 3TB HGST/Hitachi Ultrastar 7K4000 HUS724030ALE641, 64MB Cache 7200RPM SATA III 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Internal Hard Drive on sale for $49.99 - $5 off w/ promo code 17FAN082 until 7/13, as part of their FantasTech promotion to compete with Amazon Prime Day, or $44.99 total. Shipping is free. Faster 2-day shipping is available with Shoprunner.
The previous best price seen on these is $47 once with an e-bay limited use coupon. Generally, these go on sale for around $55.
Note that these "refurbished" drives are pulls from server farms that have likely been in use for over 20,000 hours. You're going to want to run a scan of the SMART data right away to make sure it's healthy without bad sectors or errors. It's probably also a good idea to use software like Hard Disc Sentinel to make sure it's reading and writing without errors. That said, these are enterprise level drives that are meant to be much hardier than retail user drives and are specified for over 2 million hours median time before failure.
