    Pretty sweet.

    The guy said they sold the last four drives 10 minutes before I came in.

    Went to two Targets both were sold out. People in Electronics said they went fast. Downside of not being 1 per customer I guess. Not sure the exact locations as they weren't the usual stores I go to. Hunt Valley MD and the one in Columbia.

    Meh. Great deal, but I've given up on my local Target, for anything that's B&M only. They typically don't have any great electronic deals in stock, during the week it's on sale (and I really don't want to deal with rain checks, and having to go back.....especially at this time of year!).

    Next closest one is an hour away, so they'd pretty much have to be giving away free BJ's, for me to drive there! ;)

    Target near me didn't have any. Not even a tag on the shelf where it should have been. But basically all their external drives were on sale. I picked up a 2TB Seagate for $80+ tax. Got a $5 coupon at check out, so may go back tomorrow and get another one.

    $120+ shipping at newegg:

    I bought 3 of the 1TB Seagate Back Up drives for $49.99 each. They were completely out of the 750s. I did, however, get a rain check for 2 750s at the $39 price. This was in KC, MO.

    I thought it said no rain checks allowed. Guess you got a person that didn't know what the heck they were doing.

    Yeah, I had read that same thing, but he offered, and I said "yes please".
