In the past, this drive has only been this cheap with rebates. Not today. This deal via Adorama's eBay account saves you $16 off the current next best price and makes this one of the cheapest terabyte USB 3.0 external drives available.
Not the cheapest we've ever seen this drive, but solidly below the average lowest price we've seen on it in the past. You'd pay $5 more anywhere else. Just be sure to mail in the rebate.
Lowest price we've seen on this Western Digital Elements 1TB drive, and a $5 price drop from less than a week ago. This is a very inexpensive way to archive all the music that's overflowing your SSD right now. Remember to mail the rebate.
I noticed that the rebate requires you to activate a subscription to the Total Defense Premium Internet Security package. The details are here: http://static.highspeedbackbone.net/rebates/TDI-10199.pdf . I haven't been able to figure out if activating the subscription means that I necessarily have to pay any extra money in order to redeem my rebate. Can you guys shed any light on this for me?
Hi Adam, thanks so much for your question and bringing this to our attention.
We looked it up too and didn't find anything solid, either. Apparently people have been asking TigerDirect support and have received varying answers - but not even about whether you have to pay for the Security suite. There's a chance from some reports that you'd have to buy something completely separate just for the rebate to work if you read the fine print.
One person reported you get 12 months free, meaning you'd have plenty of time to cancel before your card started getting charged...but then another person said they'd tried to cancel, got the runaround, got charged $50, and then they refunded the $50 only after complaints and a month's time (without any notification they were honoring the request).
Shady stuff. I've expired this deal page on our site for the time being. There's a chance it's legitimate, but with so many people having trouble, we don't want to unintentionally misrepresent something the company may not even honor.
Need a cheap portable drive? This is a full terabyte for only $44 shipped. USB 3.0 and reviews don't throw any red flags (they're mostly very positive). You'll pay $35 more elsewhere.
Lowest price ever for the 1TB Western Digital Elements External Hard Drive, only $69.99 at Newegg --available this weekend only. That's $10 cheaper than the next lowest price and $60 less than the list price.
