The mark to watch for in a good deal is $15/TB in a drive 8TB and up.

My bar is slightly different. First, I won't consider an 8TB from WD or Seagate, because both of them put SMR in the 8TB drives. So the fact that I can get an 8TB drive for a really good price doesn't factor into it at all for me. So nothing smaller than a 10TB (and 12+ is really my target - current none of the manufacturers uses SMR in sizes 10TB and up).

Averages seem to be $18+/TB, so anything below $17.5/TB is at least an ok deal. I managed to pick up a pair of the WD 12TB from Amazon when they were $175 ($15.2/TB after taxes) which was an outstanding deal. Since January, under $17/TB seems to be a decent deal. I assume we could see a deal or two for 14TB or maybe 16TB in November, but I think most of the deals will be for 10TB or 12TB this season (8TB was the easy find last year). Basically, anything under $16/TB is a very good deal. If you find something that is actually $15/TB (or under), that is essentially unheard of and you should buy them all.

For comparison:
the Best Buy 12TB@189.99 deal, after taxes was $17.14/TB
the Best Buy via Ebay 12TB@200.00 deal, was $16.67/TB (assuming you don't get charged tax).
the Best Buy via Google Shopping 12TB@180.00 deal, after taxes was $16.23/TB
the Best Buy via Google Shopping 12TB@170.00 deal, after taxes was $15.35/TB
the B&H Photo 12TB@185.00 deal, assuming no tax was $15.41/TB
