Thread: Is This A Good Deal?

  1. #1
    One of the big box electronics retailers (the blue one, as opposed to the red one) is offering a Maxtor 120 gig 7200 rpm Ultra ATA/133 HD for $139 USD with a $60 mail in rebate. Total price (less tax) $79. Is this a good deal? I think it is but I would appreciate some comments. Thanks in advance.

    One thing I forgot to add. The promo is for a 100 gig plus bonus 20 gig HD. Meaning its a 120 gig drive in a 100 gig box.

    Yes, its a good deal, but the rebate may take some time getting into your hands. If you are patient, you'll be rewarded.

    I am on a roll today. After reading the fine print, I have discovered that I was right in the first place!! Its a $60 rebate ($30 from Maxtor and $30 from Best Buy). Thanks for the input Jibbler I am going to get myself a new HD.

    Hell yeah, that's a great deal! As a reference point, I usually consider anytime you can get a HD for less than one dollar per Gigabyte (i.e. a 60GB drive for $59.99) to be a good deal.

    Definately a good deal.

    I just purchasd a 120 Gig single drive by Western Digital with 8 MB cache and 8.9m/s seek from Circuit City with a $100 dollar rebate: total paid though $180 at time of purchase, thus, total paid = $80.

    A "rebate" is defined as a discount which is not given at the time of sale.

    You send in some info, receipt and your address and you get some of the money you originally spent back a few weeks later.

    1/2 of the people are too lazy to follow the instructions exactly, and never get their money back.
