No, its more like:

Sending in the rebate for an item with all appropriate documentation. Waiting for several months to get the check and if it finally shows up, the item is already on sale cheaper with no rebate.

nuc_e, yep, as evidenced by these drives.
a few months back i got a seagate 160 for 90 AR.


anyway, i got this 20 minuges ago, damn good deal for a HD. (and all stores around here were in-stock, they had a guy there practically handing them out like russian bread in 1985 too)
it is indeed 8 meg cache and ATA.
(yay for 320gb of storage!!!!!!)

Tried to pick one up today, my closest CompUSA was totally sold out. May try going to another one nearby...the web site claims they're still in stock there.

I lucked out. I called CompUSA about 2PM and they had 3 left. I hopped in the car for a 40 minute drive only to find the Harbor Bridge (CC TX) under construction and a 30+ minute wait. Got to CUSA around 3:30 and grabbed the last one off the shelf. Also picked up the Philips DVD player that was on sale for $70. I cannot resist cheap harddrives. Along with my $20 Officemax WDJB80 this will make 240gig of storage for under $100.

All out in Pleasanton, CA

When asked if they will be getting anymore, they said "We have none on order, so none will be here for the Ad in time"

All gone here as well, only took a day or two. I'll bet they only had a couple drives per store but oh well, just have to wait for the next 50 cents a gigabyte deal to come along.
