Right , slightly harder work than the previous deals hotukdeals.com/dea…415

This takes a little effort but saves alot. Its based on purchasing a base model dell venue 8 tablet for £249. Then sending in an old piece of equipment to the Dell Trade to save program. This will garnish you a full £100 off the price of the new tablet.

The process is simple
1 Buy a new dell venue tablet and get the invoice emailed to you as a PDF
2 Find an old piece of equipment that meets the criteria as set out here tradetosave.trade-in-platform.com/_Co…tml. As I did not have an old piece of kit I purchased the cheapest HP inkjet from ebuyer for £32.31 or the Cannon for £29.99. These devices meets the min requirements for the trade to save program.
3 Signup to tradetosave.trade-in-platform.com/ with your invoice and details of the item you are going to send back.
4 On approval post the printer with the self addressed envelope as provided by the trade to save program.
5 Wait 10-40 days for your £100 payment

Total Spend
£249 Dell Table +£29.99Inkjet = £279.99 -£100 discount = £179.99

Cannon Inkjet ebuyer.com/194…026

HP Inkjet ebuyer.com/523…bhc

The possibility to reduce this further can be increased by having a piece of kit that you no longer want or some of the various dell vouchers flouting about.

Too much like hard work for me.

Valid point, will be easier for some than others. But £70 notes are not to be sniffed at. You can save 200 notes off laptops which is a chunk of change.

^--- I "liked" your post, probably because I'm a lazy git and it looks like you're not

Looking at the T&C's you have to trade in an equivalent product:

"if you have purchased a PC or tablet you must trade in a PC or tablet and so on"
and
"desktop or tablet purchases will [only] qualify for specific quoted rewards on the basis of trade in of an old laptop, desktop or tablet product."

So I doubt Dell will give any cashback off a tablet in return for a cheap inkjet - YMMV!

Normally I would be the same but alot of holiday over Xmas and a new job resulted in time on my hands X)

Point 3 :

Dell Qualifying Products and associated applicable reward amounts are … Dell Qualifying Products and associated applicable reward amounts are those set out at any given time here. Rewards are dependent upon the Qualifying Product purchased and trade in products must be equivalents - specifically printer purchases will qualify for specific quoted rewards on the basis of trade in of an old printer, scanner or fax product, monitor purchases will qualify for specific quoted rewards on the basis of trade in of an old monitor product and laptop, desktop or tablet purchases will qualify for specific quoted rewards on the basis of trade in of an old laptop, desktop, tablet or Server product.




I'm under the impression you can't trade in a printer for a tablet.

I successfully purchased a junky Acer Iconia B1 from eBay and traded it it, when I purchased my Venue 8 Pro.

I tried to get the Acer iconia off ebay but couldn't get it for cheaper than 50 notes. Good deal if you could tho

"Your trade in product must be an equivalent product for the product you have purchased, for example if you have purchased a printer you must trade in a printer, if you have purchased a monitor you must trade in a monitor, if you have purchased a PC or tablet you must trade in a PC or tablet and so on."

It shows shows you traded something in not WHAT you traded. Maybe you got lucky as their rules clearly say you can't trade in a printer against a laptop.

When I traded in to Dell recently I asked about this..

"The laptop, desktop and tablet are all interchangeable" for trades I was told.

That's what I was told by the company as well. The terms and conditions listed are incorrect on the website. They will accept hardware that is listed as long as it conforms to the rules ie is operational and made by a pre defined set of producers. There was no luck involved.

Thanks for clarifying that but still a risk I suppose!

It seems to be £263 delivered so where do you get £249 from?

The Venue 11 Pro with a 10.8” 1080P screen is £431 but is eligible for a £200 cashback which brings it down to £231 versus £162 for the 8” model.
The 11 also has a 64GB v 32GB drive so not bad for an extra £69.

Edit: The 11 Pro at that price lacks Win8 Pro.

That's odd, when I visit the dell site I am getting £249 incl delivery for the venue 8, maybe its a cookie thing? Its a good call for the bigger device, I was looking for a small win8 tablet for the least amount of cash with a bay trail processor. I am waiting for the LTE versions to come out later this year before I invest in a bigger device. The Laptop deals are also pretty good and 200 off as well.

Printers, Scanners or Fax
Complete with power cable, device must weigh less than 20KG


Funny that for printer it is not required to be fully functional

Pricing is definitely £249 incl of vat and shipping for me, but appreciate dell can be funny with cookies. http://imgur.com/Wan6hLS.jpg

10% cash-back on the 11” model versus 3% for the 8”.

Assuming you receive that alongside the trade-in leads to the following prices which exclude the value of the trade-in item:

11” £431 - 10% cash-back of £34 = £197 after £200 trade-in.
8” £263 - 3% cash-back of £6 = £157 after £100 trade-in.

Dell cash-back excludes VAT and postage.

Amazing the way the run the trade in operation. Its actually managed by a 3rd party co. I understand incentive, but don't understand how its financially feasible even if the full rules are applied. Our company devalues laptops to 0 after 3-4 years and most are operational yet they are happy to hand over 200 notes for one. Go figure, repeat business or cost of acquiring a new sale?

Do you have the promotion codes?

Wonder if they would accept a EeePC 701?

Original Poster

They accept Asus, but it needs to be under 5yrs, hold a charge for 20mins, be operational and not be damaged

When you click on the qualifying products link it takes you to their 'For Work' pages. Is this promo for business purchases? Or will it also work for home purchases?

So if I need to trade a tablet for a tablet, what's the cheapest qualifying tablet going?

The "venue 11" is actually £10 cheaper on the business site and also the cashback via quidco/tcb is only available if you purchase via the business site.
Edited by: "Spacehduk" 20th Jan 2014

Looking for a new tablet to replace my Asus Slider SL101, I'll have a look through the qualifying products later to see if they accept it.

Original Poster

From a purchase perspective as long as you buy a new device from dell.com it qualifies. As has been proven by a few people you do not need to trade in like for like. I sent a printer for my tablet.

Op: You haven't put how it cost to send the printer in

From reading other posts on here, they will send you (or ou can print off) a prepaid postage label.

Please bear in mind when buying this 'deal' that tradetosave took 5 months to pay me out on the above deal.

Very slow. I got the cashback, in the end.

Heat added, great find for those that want to go through with the hassle

Is this cashback only avaialble via the business site. I can not see any trade-in offers via the normal consumer site... You just need to check this so carefully on these offers....

This promotion is open to residents of the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland only. The promotion is not open to wholesalers, resellers, retailers, participating stockists or anyone connected with the promotion.

I have the Latitude 10 3G with Win8.1 Pro (£250 as a pristine refurb) & am very pleased with it. Win8.1 is actually a very usable OS for tablets. I'm tempted to trade up to the Latitude 11 Pro with the bigger screen & slightly faster CPU but I would be losing Win8.1 Pro and 3G.

Just realised my Latittude 10 was purchased in September 2013 so thinking that I am eligible (eventhough beyond 21 day limit) I filled in the form just to get an idea. Because I wanted to purchase a tablet, it will only give me option to enter a tablet details and does not allow me to enter printer details.
If my new purchase is a printer then only it allows me to name any printer. OP how did you overcome this?

I submitted the form regardless by selecting Compaq under tablet details and typed in my Canon Printers name.Worst, it may get rejected.
