its 1/12 now, is it too late to buy it now?
No, it's not too late until the 16th, since it expires on the 15th.
so there is also a sale going on, with the rebates too?!?
edit: i just checked the weekly add, and it says the price after rebates is $129.99? How did you save $18.00?
Right, the $18-off sale must've ended for the 250GB drive. Also, the 120GB drive is out of stock, so this deal is almost all done.
You can still get $50 off the 250GB drive, but I don't know if it's worth it anymore.
