Where did you get that Seagate XT 750GB for $59 in your sig?
ah, that's kind of fake... cuz it's from staples.. and you know, from staples you get rewards coupon by recycling cartridges... collected from your buddies, company recycle boxes, your own, etc...
so it was about $144.99, or maybe $149.99 - can't remember, yet the only receipt I can access to in my emails, having it at the price it was matched to - $123.49 at Walmart.com;
I have $38 in staples rewards coming from cartridges,
and i bought a 2x$20 staples rewards at ebay for $29 ($11 saved)
then I have a $25 off $75 from staples.
so the net price for me was about (123.49 - 38 - 11 - 25) = 49.49, but I think I also included the filler items - which I don't really need but just to achieve threshold for $25 off $75 to be working, plus tax, i guess that's how i got it for say $59...
NOW, last week, with the rewards from Dec becomes available, I bought a Scorpio Blue 1TB at staples, the same strategy -
buy at retail price - $119.99, with $34 in rewards from cartridge; a $25 of $75 from ebay for $8 bucks i think, then PM to Amazon at ~$85. Gonna pick it up today, guess i'd update my sig as well.
that should be (85-34-(25-8)) = 34 plus tax. hmmmm... wow...
EDIT, haven't checked on CB via ShopDiscover or some other sites I used. PM might have void the CB. But I've been happy already. didn't bother to confirm on those 5-10% CB. so.
er, guess these two are the only staples deals I did with rewards from cartridges (free money) in my sig. kind of shame to call them deal though...
