25% off a Lenovo extended warranty - example: 3 year (return to base) for Thinkpad S430 just £44.10

Found 29th Dec 2013
I've been considering getting an extended warranty for my shiny new Lenovo Thinkpad S430 (which I got for the bargain price of £499 from the Lenovo outlet).

I'm not usually one for extended warranties but felt if the price was right I might just bite the bullet - I also thought it might actually save me money by making me think twice about flogging the laptop after 9 months and getting a new one which I am apt to do :-(

I checked on the cost of the warranties a few days ago and actually thought they were pretty reasonable but when I went to buy one today was pleasantly surprised that Lenovo have an offer on for a few days which takes 25% off the cost of an extended warranty.

I can extend the warranty for my S430 to a 3 year (return to base) for just £44.10.

£22 for each extra years cover seems pretty good value to me for a machine that normally costs around £900.

I am actually going to go for the next level up which is the 3 year "Onsite Next Business day" option which now comes in at £59.40 as this will also upgrade my standard 1st year return to base warranty to the "Onsite next business day" (which is, I believe, a worldwide warranty, not just UK).

It may of course be that the warranty for different machines may cost different amounts.

The code is OURXMASGIFT and it expires on 31st December.

Hope this helps someone who has bought one of the many Lenovo laptop deals which have been popping up recently (although as its unlikely to get hot enough to reach the HUKD front page will probably be missed by most!).

Cheers dears.

Just bought the 3 year "Onsite Next Business day" warranty for my S430 as planned.

I'm not sure how / why but the final total came to £56.93 - even cheaper than I expected.

Again I think this is a pretty decent price for a comprehensive extended warranty for a machine that normally costs £900.

I also went through Quidco (3%). It probably wont pay out due to the use of the code but no harm in trying (_;)

Thanks for posting. I bought the same deal as you and have just gone for the same warranty. As with you the price ended up being £56.93. Worth pointing out that this only shows at the final stage (after entering payment details for £59.40).

I also don't usually bother with extended warranties but for the price it saves me the hassle of diagnosing / repair. As you say you get postage to Lenovo covered for the first year too as a result with the next business day (next business day not guaranteed).

Great deal I suppose you are using s430 for couple weeks now, so do you like them?

About a week or so I think for me. Thanks for posting the S430 deal. The base warranty is until 27/12/2014 (even though they list an earlier purchase date) so I guess they give a few extra days to cover delivery.

S430 is fine so far. Wasn't sure I would like the keyboard but it's fine. Trackpad disabled (all about the nipple!). TBH I'm getting used to Windows 8.1 more than anything else. I currently use a T420 at work. Haven't really made much use of the fingerprint scanner. Had to sort out a few driver issues (Intel widi & 5321).

Many thanks

I just bought a lenovo ideapad y510p and the 3 yr mail in warranty is £48 does anyone know if this is a special offer price or is it this the normal price ?
Code didn't work for this worth a try.

If the code didn't work then that will be the normal price.

I think the special offer finished last night.

£48 still seems a reasonable price though....

yes def a reasonable price would have liked a next business day option but worth keep checking as guarantee at moment that came with the laptop is valid till november....................ps awesome laptop.
