Use Edge Browser and sign into your MS account, in the browser. Then when you are on the WD website, there will be a blue icon (shaped like a hanging price tag) on the right side of the address bar. click it, to open the MS shopping rewards and coupon options. there will then be a button to activate cashback. You will automatically receive the cashback in bing points, after you complete checkout.Can you please explain how to do this? I thought you can only click the link through one?
hmm... So I navigated to WD through paypal deals just to be safe and also activated bing cashback as you said. Confirmed that the bing sidebar said "you're earning up to 5% back storewide". Completed my order and I don't see any paypal points or bing points.Use Edge Browser and sign into your MS account, in the browser.

Then, purchase the item with Paypal, to automatically receive the paypal cashback. You don't have to click the link through paypal.
You need two things, either use the paypal app as a means of purchasing, not sure what additional steps are required, as I used the method stated below.This is my first time hearing of PayPal 12% cash back. So I'm going through WD website to buy it. I don't see anywhere anything about PP offer. I'm all the way at the end where it says pay now with the little PayPal popup window. But don't know how this works. Do I just complete this and I will get an email that I receive the 12% back or do I need to do anything? I'm buying 2x 2TB if it matters.
Anyone that had the drive backordered with a far off date get it shipped yet by any chance? Got a random email from WD stating high demand, delays, and my package will ship within the next few business days...Considering my ETA checking my order is august 10th, that's definitely an improvement, but looks like a mass produced e-mail. Any confirmations of shipping for anyone?
Wish Samsung made a 4tb 990 pro, would of preferred that over the sn850x. Have to buy a heatsink for this WD as well, so the $159 current price of the 990 pro 2tb heatsink variant, compared to the 250 I'm paying here is quite tempting...Not sure if I should cancel and switch, but 2tb just seems to small for my uses.
2TB is $99.99 on WD's website. and Paypal still has 12% cash back for WD. And you can stack another 5% with bing rewards cashback points.FYI this deal is dead but PayPal is currently offering $10 cash back at Adorama and they have the same drive in stock at $99.99. Supposedly a $100 min purchase excluding tax but I got the discount, plus 3% back using the PayPal MC.
Because now we know that you want it, and now that you know that we know that you know that we know, you just gotta go for it....So I dont need the space now, and I dont anticipate it being needed in the year, so why do I want this so much?
Keeping around a third of the writetable space free makes any ssd i had feel snappier.
Something about having to rewrite part of the upper layers if you need to write to the lower ones?
With my 2tb SSDs i never had than much space to spare.
Most SSDs can dynamically allocate a portion of the TLC/QLC NAND into pseudo-SLC, which is much faster, to use as a cache. The more free space available, the more that can be allocated to cache.
There are probably other things going on as well that benefit from having more free space.
