Apparently Amazon also have it at the same price as pointed out by fellow redflags members. http://forums.redflagdeals.com/samsung- ... g-2320489/

Staples has it for $89.99 too, minus any coupons that you may have. https://www.staples.ca/products/2858952 ... e500bam-st

Same price as Amazon where the price has vacillated between this price and $130 for the last little while.

They all track each other's prices. I mean think about it, at consumer level we can track thru different tools to see price history, stock levels etc., the big players are definitely using more intense tools and probably have individuals assigned to program to receive price alerts all the time...

And coupon codes, should be able to get at least 10% off:

I thought it ended yesterday, and it did for the other sizes but not the 500GB.

Keep in mind all the recent reports on RFD of Staples cancelling orders for no apparent reason.

Because of how electronics, distribution, and retail work in Canada. If it's not black friday or boxing day, there's a greater than 99% chance that any sale you see on a name-brand product isn't from the retailer. The discount comes from the vendor. So in this case either Samsung has a rebate on offer, or the SSD is discontinued and the Canadian distributor wants to move whatever's left out of its warehouses. In the past the retailers probably only updated their prices once a week with their new flyers but maybe now it's easier to automate the price change on their websites.

Was just about to buy the Crucial mx500 yesterday for $90... the Evo now comes in at that price, including tax... just wondering if it's worth a gamble for BF.. trying to upgrade my wife's 2012 MBP from HDD to SSD.

Good suggestion from the last thread on this product: if you have an RBC Visa card, you can get a $10 statement credit for a purchase at Staples over $50 (on until Nov. 19). Must pre-register for this with RBC before you buy.

Also, if you are looking to upgrade an SSD (like I was a few weeks back), this link has good instructions on how to clone your existing OS drive and it worked perfectly for me. I upgraded from a 128 GB SSD to a 500 GB SSD. https://www.pcmag.com/feature/363387/ho ... hard-drive

Exactly. The retailer actually still makes the same profit as they would if the item was at regular price. There are lots of times when multiple retailers have sales on the same item at the same time.

BTW, don't get fooled by the "3-bit MLC" bit. 3-bit MLC = TLC.
