Best Buy has a selection of internal and external WD hard drives where you can get a free $25 gift card when you purchase one. For example, if you want an internal hard drive you can get this WD Red 4TB internal drive for $150. That's a pretty normal street price for that drive without the $25 gift card.
For external drives, I'd recommend the My Passport 4TB USB 3.0 portable drive for $120. You might be able to get that drive for as low as $110 at other places, but when you factor in the $25 gift card that makes it a better deal.
If that extra $10 is important, remember that Best Buy does price matching with other retailers. Wouldn't take too much extra effort to get the price lowered and still get your $25 gift card.
The WD My Passport is a great drive we've written about before. It's a secure hard drive with password protection and hardware encryption. It can be used as a backup device and comes with a three-year warranty. It's formatted for Windows machines, but you can reformat it if you use a Mac.
The WD Red internal drive is one of the more popular internal drives on the market. If you really want to take a step-up, this deal includes some Red Pro drives as well. Either way, you're getting great internal storage with fast transfer speeds (up to 6 Gbps for the Red 4TB). These drives work great with network-attached storage devices like the Synology DS216 or the WD My Cloud, which also has the $25 gift card deal attached to it.
The gift card is shipped with the hard drive, and there's no shipping fee or expiration date applied.
If you'd rather get an SSD, one of our favorites is currently on sale for $150, which is about $25 off its street price. It can be paired with this $9 Anker enclosure to give it USB 3.0 access.
