If they're not too old, like a drive in the last 10 years, there's actually a bizarre used market for platter hard drives. I make the point of selling a drive whenever I buy a new one. They can go for almost new, some times more than new prices on ebay.

The people buying them are data recovery companies, so make sure you do a multi-pass data wipe before shipping out. They have a customer drive who is paying big money to retrieve data from a broken drive that doesn't spin up because of a board problem and they are looking for a good donor board to swap with. Your listing needs to include everything about the drive (ie. firmware version, model number, photos of the drive's board, etc). If you offer overnight shipping, they will often pay that too.
The lowest ever for this was $95 if I'm not mistaken, right?

Edit:
The answer is $89.99.
You do realize that there are no spinner drives that can max out SATA II, let alone SATA III, right?

There's really no simple answer to this. First of all, if they're in an enclosure you're going to have to shuck them to put them into a NAS unit. Secondly, finding the right unit is a non-trivial problem, but you pretty much can't go wrong with QNAP or Synology.

Whether or not you should actually repurpose the drives depends on (in my personal opinion, which is by no means the only opinion) whether they're new enough to make it worthwhile. If they're SATA I or SATA II (1.5Gbps and 3Gbps, respectively) it's probably not worth it. SATA III are already incredibly cheap at 6Gbps (which is already slow enough compared to newer and faster PCI/m.2 drives that are significantly lower-capacity & significantly more expensive).

They had this at $89.99 several months ago.

Best Buy seems to always have ridiculous random pricing for their portable Easystore drives.

For example, they currently have....
4TB w/ Flash drive = $159.99
4TB = $149.99
2TB = $109.99
