Canon Pixma MP210 for £11.63 (after Canon cashback - promotion until 29/9/08)

Found 14th Aug 2008Made hot 14th Aug 2008
Here is how I bagged myself this entry level Canon all-in-one for (potentially) £11.63

On PC World's website, this is £49.99

Got them to price match amazon.co.uk's price of £28.75 (in stock and delivered by amazon.co.uk, not a marketplace seller) which brought it down to £26.63

Just downloaded Canon claim form from canon.co.uk, and am applying to Canon for the £15 cashback, which I have no worries about getting as I have always received Canon cashback in the past.

On an aside, the printer I got looks like a factory refurb (which I don't have a problem with as it still comes with the full warranty) but how do PC World get away with selling a refurbed product for nearly twice as much as a new product from other retailers???

edit - here is the link to reserve at PC World

I bought this printer a couple of months ago and I'm very happy with it. I used a Canon cashback deal too and had no problems receiving the cheque - It took about 25 days though. Heat added.

I would rather pay £2 odd more and get it from Amazon customer service is excellent.

Do you have a link for cachback ?

what, exactly, is it? Can it print from a computer or is it one of these new fangled digital camera printers? Also, does it come stocked with ink?

its a printer with built in scanner m8 , you need a PC and it will come with carts

comes with carts, and i think it is PictBridge compatible, so could print from compatible Canon products without a printer (but don't quote me on it, I haven't read the instructions yet!)

Link isn't working for me :()

Because you let them!
Ask them to send you a NEW one!

Disgraceful. Had this problem with a camera from Jessops before :-(

Well, for £11.63 I personally don't mind getting a factory refurb (I have bought refurbed items direct fom Canon in the past and never had any worries about the warranty or anything). Having said that, I would be blinking livid if I had ordered on the internet at the full £50 price and found it was refurbed when it arrived.

Can someone who has done a price match at PC World describe exactly how it's done, I've never done it before...

Can I just take a print out of the Amazon page and the PC World reservation page print outs and get them to charge me the Amazon price minus the difference?

As according to:
pcworld.co.uk/mar…ise

Amazon Price: £28.75
PC World Price: £49.99
Difference: £21.24 @ 110% = £23.36
£49.99 - £23.36 = £26.63 (£11.63 after cashback...)

Ie do i need to explain that to the customer services desk (after waiting) or can I just grab the item from the shelf and go to checkout and do it all there quickly?

Tempted - already got one ........... but in this straight away age, cheaper to buy this for the ink carts only.:oops:

I got this from PC world couple of months ago (price match with Amazon and cashback). Excellent printer/scanner/photocopier. It also has a USB port on it for your digital camera pics. The photocopier function works without a PC so I'd imagine the Camera photo printing function does too (never needed to use that so don't know). Excellent printer either way and I got a good deal when I paid £17 so just over £11 is amazing. The cashback cheque took less than 2 weeks to arrive for me (maybe a little less, I forget).

I love how PC world try and make out like they will do you a deal on a USB cable if you buy this printer. Normally £15 but they will take £5 off that if you add it to basket!. What a joke!, go to poundland and get the same cable for, well use your imagination :p.

This printer comes with PG37 and CL38 ink carts (very low ink level). So not worth it if buying for carts.
If you want to buy ink carts for this it will be PG 40 & CL41 (£25 ~ £32 on web) for both.

Printer it self is great.

And free delivery if you're a bus traveller like myself. Do PCW have Quidco tho?!?

Also... Is the cashback a cert or a risk?

I'm still on my original carts but when they do run dry it's really easy to refill them. Got 2 packs of ink refills a while back which I've use to keep our other Canon printer (same type carts) up and running for about 2 years now :thumbsup:. But yeah the carts you'll get with this don't have as much as the standard Canon jobbies.

You'll definitely get your money.

Don't forget 2.5% Quidco for PC World collect instore

Good spot heat added

Agreed .getting pc world staff to realise they even do a pricematch is painful never mind trying to get them to do the pricematch.. if you have a couple of hours to waste and like humilating pc world staff then go for it otherwise amazon best bet.

I had cashback last time from Canon - does anyone know if I can claim again for another printer please?

cheapest black carts on ebay are around £10 delivered .. makes this a bit pointless ?
you can get epson R series printer carts from 82p + post (UKDVDR.co.uk)

might be worth buying to sell on tho ... :roll:

Just take it straight to the checkout - that's what I always do. Just be prepared for them to double-check it with someone more senior as they never seem to be sure on the checkout for some reason (when you and I are perfectly aware what the situation is!!)

link for pcworld, its in stock

I have used the Peach snap n print cartridges (which are licenced by canon) instead canon's own, they are a little pricey to begin with as you have to buy a starter pack first (1 print head + 3 refills) but the overall value is great if you use your printer a lot. I reckon the quality is indistinguishable from canon's own.
You can get them from SVP:

Good deal, I have just bought the Canon MP220 from Argos for £39.99 which it says was £79.99.

SO if you can get the 210 for that price then thats very decent.

Nice deal, but I'll take the amazon deal as I'm currently on the Prime trial. The £2 expense is worth it in my time not dealing with PC world and the petrol! The voucher is the real bargain for me :-) Thanks

Anyone know the dimensions to this? It looks pretty small. How does it compare to the Epson DX8400/8450?

I bought two of these (seperate transactions) when the last £20 cashback offer was available in March 08. I made two seperate claims and recieved both payments. If i am reading the T&C's correctly, its per purchase & not per houshold.

Thanks, gonna pick mine up from my local PC World after work!

Just managed to get one of these price matched at PCW Hull, assistant tried to add next day delivery charge from Amazon until I politely reminded him of the terms & conditions.

Decided to go via Amazon, £2 not worth my time/effort/petrol/car usage.

cheap printer, MEGA expensive carts.....

will end up costing much more to run, than a £ 100 printer with £ 1 compatible carts, and the £ 100 printer will be much better quality too

Got a link to the refill system you used?

From what I remember I either bought the refills in Argos or PC world (it was over a year ago now). Pretty sure they were around £7.99 for the colour and a little less for the black (under a tenner each either way). Still got plenty left and have refilled the Canon carts multiple times with absolutely no issues :thumbsup:. Cheap as chips, I would never spend what Canon ask for the official carts.

Who doesn't like humiliating PC world staff??, It's half the fun if you ask me :p. Anytime I've been in to price match it has been very simple. Print off the online retailers ad before you go in, pick up the item you want, go to checkout and tell them you want it price matched, simple. Just watch out because they don't automatically give you the extra 10% of the difference off. They're sneaky like that!. Work out the price you'll be paying before you leave the house so they don't try and diddle you.

Any idea about cartridge price?

Does it come with two free cartridges?

Got mine from Amazon too a few months a go. Still on original cartridges. Comes with both colour and black cartridges:thumbsup:

Great deal IMO.

The colour ink on my HP990 has been empty for months and a new cart costs more than this deal so very tempted to get the Canon then bin it after the ink runs out as I use it so little that another offer will probably come along by the time its empty.

Edit: Just realised that I have a £2.50 Amazon voucher from the promotion a while back so Amazon it is.

Just got this, I work next to a PC World so walked in with the Amazon printout in hand. Managed to get it for £23.36 too after a bit of haggling about adding 10% of the difference.

Anyway, after the £15 rebate I make that an all in one printer for £8.26.

Anyone got a link to a £6 or cheaper Canon PG37 Black Ink Cartridge or even the colour CL38 refills?
