Was just 99.99 last week at canada computers price match at staples with 10 off back to school coupon brining it to 89.99

99.99 is the usual price it comes down to so not a hot deal. I would say warm deal would be around 79.99 and hot deal around 69.99 lava when it came down to 55. Been following this drive for a while and waiting on a hot deal

Not sure what Black Friday will look like this year, but I got this exact drive (500GB) for $59.99 from staples 2019 Black Fri. If you can wait, there are better deals to be had!

Yes, I got this drive during Black Friday 2019 at London Drugs for the same price. I initially got the 250 GB, but figured this was cheaper in the long run with double the storage for just $20 more. This may become the "new normal" for pricing as SSD production ramps up and more supplies come on the market with even traditional HDD manufacturers like WD and Seagate and coming out their own line of SSDs. Heck, I even saw an HP SSD on Newegg for crying out loud!
Why settle for full retail price when you can wait and get it at a lower price for better value (even better if there's a bundled freebies deal)? 😉

To be fair, the BF deal last year was 79.99, but made to 59.99 because someone shared a 20$ off 75$ newsletter coupon that was supposed to be one time use, or at least not for everyone to use. Even better if you showed up early and got the 15$ gift card lowering it to ~45$.

Lol at the down votes for bad pricing. Ignore them OP. Any deal is a deal at this point given Covid era.

Decent enough deal if you really want a faster ssd but when you look at real world performance comparisons of ssd's the differences aren't so impressive. Even the differences between a mid range nvme and an ssd isn't that much in everyday use cases. For example..

Been eying up a WD Blue SSD as an upgrade for my new arcade build since I think it hits the right price to performance to dependability ratio for the older system I just bought for cheap. The WD Blue gets decent ratings and is going for $79.99 everywhere from Best Buy to Amazon. Wish Staples carried it to get that extra $10 off though.
