Ok, thanks to the post yesterday for the PC World clearout this came to my attention and I think its worth it's own post.

Right heres the deal. This is marked as unavailable online & offline on the website BUT theres a LOT of stuff in their sale thats marked out of stock thats actually in the stores, so it's a case of turn up and see if you get lucky.

Basically, go buy this for £15-97. Get home and register the warranty on the brother website and brother will kindly deposit £50 in your bank account (one per household). Then you can either sell the machine on ebay, or keep it. Either way its a profit of £34......

PCW also have LOADS of the address labels for this machine at 97p for small ones and £1.07 for the large ones (400 per roll), so this would be ideal for addressing ebay parcels.

Oh and its USB, says it works on XP/MACos but no mention of Vista.

Just to reiterate: These are out of stock on the website and supposedly in the stores BUT MAY actually be available instore on the shelf. It's a case of turn up on the offchance. I know stores still have them as I bought one an hour ago.

Thats odd as I just picked one up this morning. INSTORE only. They're on the website as out of stock. Medway branch also had QL-500's on the shelf but you don't get the £50 back on those :-(
#5
Fantastic posting Shen. I had to go down to the store on Old Kent Rd anyway (to pick up the rest of the stuff the OH had ordered after seeing Saintscouple's post) so had a check around the place. They didn't have any & said they hadn't for a while but for anyone that strikes it lucky by checking instore it's a great deal & a nice add-on to 'The Saint's' post.
It's not like there won't be a few of us in our local PC Worlds over the next few days now is it?!??

Can you post the link to the Brother Website where it mentions about the £50 cashback?

That's pretty amazing if you can get it. If I had time to go out of my way to PC World I'd go look. .97 stuff does tend to be a pain to find though!
I wouldn't mind getting it without the cashback tbh! Just the printer and a pile of labels. Great post shen.

Hanley (Stoke) had some. I had to ask where they were. The man showed me and then said "Wow they're cheap". He told the other members of staff and they snaffled them and cleared the shelf while I kept a firm grip on mine.

Trying to register though gives me "417: An unexpected error has occured. Contact us"
#10
Just been to Caridff Newport Road and they "sold out" more like they got cherry picked like in other stores as they never seem to have any of the decent offers available.

None in Preston (Blackpool Road) but they said Garstang had at least one. Good luck, I had to come back to work.

I have the same problem, there is a special link (just completed it), I haven't got it on me at the moment but if you drop me a pm, I'll reply this evening

No 550 models in Plymouth but I picked up a QL500 for £16.17 and a few boxes of labels at 77p a go.

Happy with :-D

The price ends in a 7, so the usual PC World no stock listing.

Anybody can offer to sell stuff for pennies if they don't have any stock.

Trust me, if it ends in 7p at PC World/Currys/Dixons, chances are they don't actually have any, or possibly one in Lands End.. :roll:
#16
Still worth checking as I managed to get 3 last night from Wednesbury (that's all they had) - they won't appear on Ebay BTW.
#17
Managed to get one from Liverpool Garston, but someone just beat me to 4 others which were in a different part of the store (not where you would expect them to be). Got some extra labels reduced from £8.99 to £1.07 though.
#18
mm is there any difference between the 500 and 550 models searched e-bay and they seem to be the same.
#19
I think one is manual cut and the 550 is auto cut

which model did you get geordiebuy? Have you opened it yet? Any good? also a silly question but do you have to buy brother's brand of label paper? or can you any type/brand?


thanks

It looks the business, all that I have done at the moment though is log the serial number with Brother for the £50 cashback.

In Wednesbury there was tonnes of labels and so I won't be thinking of compatible ones at the moment.

As I think someone has already said 'ideal for label printing for Ebay etc,,' @97p for 400 labels

ok managed to pick up a ql500 from hanley stoke on trent. Anyone know anywhere cheap to get the large labels from dk11208 and small ones dk11209. They didnt have any in store
#30
I only went in for the stationary and saw the printers as well, I didn't see this thread before going in. Thanks OP anyway.

I picked up a Q550 in Plymouth at 9AM this morning. They did have about 6 of both models and loads of labels. I popped back at 12 to get some more labels and all the printers had gone.

georgieboy123 you have pm Re registration for £50 cashback. I get the same error message as dp1503.

Hi to Bookie, well done on getting a QL500 in Plymouth, you must have been in early as well.

The link I provided went all the way through with me but the original would not. Via this link you do have to enter both parts of the serial number whereas the original link asks only for the last 9 digits

Brilliant thanks, alll went through with the link you provided, Cheers. Rep added to you and the OP.

A cracking label printer for free and £35 cash back, what more could you ask for.
My wife posts quite a bit and this printer will allow her to use the post office print your own stamp system.

I managed to get enough labels as well tro last the lifetime of the printer.

Round about 10:30ish. The printers were on the bottom shelf on the ailse just up from the discounted stationery and there was one left after mine. Plenty of tapes just above them - the staff were having a field day in there and were more than happy to offer advice on the post it notes and Apprentice offer!! Nice to see some happy staff for a change! :)
#34
is this offer available for the QL-500 as well as the QL-550 as on the site it only says that u can claim cashback for CL-550 also if you can claim cashback for QL-500 where did you guy get them from as PC world on have QL-550s!
#35
Only the 550s qualify I'm afraid

Gave head office of PC world a call .. they are useless.. they said they didn't have any showing as it was end of line!!!

when i asked for a local number they said only Head Office has that number and not allowed to give it out!!!

use [url]www.saynoto0870.co.uk[/url] and put in PCworld this will bring all the stores with a local number.. and give them a call...
#38
Getting really confused, because Northampton store seems to have QL550s priced at £65 not £12.

Anyone shed any light on this or am I being a twonk again?
#39
thanks for this one i'm new and always expect a catch, but hey guess what picked one up in glos 30 mins ago and still 2 left on shelf.no labels though.
