HP 630 15.6" Laptop (i3 370M 2.4 GHz, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD) - £150 trade-in & cashback + £25 off Voucher @ BT Business - (£188.06 Ex Vat) £260.67 Inc Vat

Jas10Jas10[helper]

Received an email from BT Business Direct today with this offer along with 1 week voucher codes:
£10 off £150 - BT1210
£25 off £300 - BT1225

Much better deal if you can get the VAT off:
£363.06 - £25 (with voucher) = £338.06
£338.06 - £150 = £188.06 Ex. Vat

Bought a Samsung laptop from BT Business Direct last year, very similar deal and spec, and took up the cashback and trade in offers. All worked out but did take a while.

Came with Windows 7 (pre-installed & included a hard copy, DVD)

Have to buy the laptop first (normal price) and then claim once you've got it, fill in online forms including invoice number, serial number etc.
You then send off the laptop (no need to do anything to it, the company clears the drive themselves with some ceritified software) and get £10 towards delivery - also send the claim forms and await the money paid into your account.

£25 Off Voucher - BT1225

With VAT:
£363.06 + Vat = £435.67
£435.67 - £25 (with voucher) = £410.67
Claim cashback and successful trade in (£410.67 - £150) = £260.67

    £100 trade-in. Bear in mind that you pay postage and need to send in a working PC/laptop from a named brand. I have a couple of Compaq celeron 300's, but sorting out a hard disk, wiping it etc. Is it worth it?

    **You pay £363.06 ex VAT at the checkout (£435.67 inc VAT). Take £50 cash-back and £100 trade-in off this price (both claimed/arranged directly with manufacturer – terms & conditions apply). Price after discounts is £285.67 inc VAT, or £238.06 ex VAT.

    † Coupon code is valid only until end of 12th February 2012.

    Quite confused here oO , not sure how it's being worked out. Maybe I've missed something.
    No idea where the £238.06 (? 363.06 - 150 = £213.06 ?) and £213.06 are coming from.
    How can the voucher be used afterwards? Surely you need to buy the laptop first and use the voucher, and then claim the cashback and trade in later.
    Would be grateful if someone could clear this up.

    I would have thought it would be calculated like this -
    £363.06 - £25 (with voucher) - £338.06
    £338.06 - £150 = £188.06 Ex. Vat

    If its the same as the Samsung deal I took up, you get £10 towards delivery and the amount you get paid depends on what you have, condition of the laptop etc. so you still get paid something. You don't need to wipe it either - they take care of that and you get a certificate verifying it.

    They will give you a tenner on top of £100 towards postage, according to T&C
    Will my laptop be classed as working order, if battery is dead and I am using it on lead?

    I am tempted, looks good, but why people are voting cold? Am I missing something?

    You should still get some money for it - prob not the full amount but possibly close to it.

    So it is not working order? What am I suppose to put on the form?

    If it works the same as the offer I took up, you simply fill in a form and answer questions on the make, age, condition etc. of the laptop you are trading in. I can recall seeing a price list for different criteria e.g. £100 good condition, £80 low battery, £60 damaged etc..... something like that.

    I'm not totally sure how this offer works, would be best to contact BT or HP to get the full details first.

    I don't think you get anything if it doesn't work at all but you should for minor/cosmetic damage, or slow speed etc.

    In your case (it works with the adapter) that should still qualify as working order but you won't get the full amount for it - they will assess it first and decide or maybe you can ask them about this.

    Replacing laptop batteries is quite inexpensive (so it maybe it won't affect the amount you get for it significantly), from my own experience, but I can't tell you how much you would get for it, sorry.

    It seems a lot of hassle to get the quoted price which is not guaranteed anyway.

    I got the same spec for £199 .... I had similar to this one as a replacement but it went faulty ..... would keep opening multiple browser windows 'out of the box', was unusable. I got them to swap for this spec, i.e. i3, 4GB RAM and 500GB HDD, though they were selling for £329 at the time.

    Does anyone know if those codes can be used more than once on each account?
