- PNY 240GB SSD for $75 after 2 rebates
PNY 240GB XLR8 Solid State Drive for $145 with free shipping (usually goes for around $110).
It is bundled with Total Defense Premium Internet Security for Windows that usually goes for around $50 by itself.
A $60 mail-in rebate is available on the Total Defense Premium software, and a $10 mail-in rebate is available on the SSD.
Beware that dealing with two rebates is riskier than one rebate, since there is double the hassle and double the chance something may be submitted incorrectly (or your rebate could be denied for no legitimate reason, and may require you to dispute a rebate rejection).
If you would rather deal with one or no rebate, Newegg is selling the SSD for $110, a good deal for a 240GB SSD and a $10 mail-in rebate is available.
