The sign I saw said the rebate is only through today, Sat. Jan. 25, 2014.  Other stores that sell the Central also are having $20 off, but this is $20 less than everyone else.  This item is not available at all stores, so it may be hit or miss.  The item number is 781581.

checked the two near me, this was nowhere in sight.

Seagate has had some serious quality control problems in the past.
Lets hope that situation is remedied.
