HP ProBook 470 G2 Laptop £449.99 with £75 HP cash back and £200 trade up Co-op Electricals

Found 7th Apr 2015
Seems a good price for the laptop comparing to other sites already at £459.99* but HP have also extended the £75 cashback deal to include purchases up to the end of April;

hppromotions.co.uk/Pro…oks

They are also still doing the trade up for suitable laptops/tablets on this model up to the end of this month too;

tradeuptohp.com/uk/…ing

There's plenty of comment on other listings on Hotdeals that confirms non-business users seem to be able to claim this trade up amount, for example (http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/hp-probook-455-g2-laptop-g6w43ea-amd-a6-7050b-4gb-500gb-15-6-windows-8-1-windows-2174071)

Read the T&C's for the cashback and trade up rules.

Add in a couple of % via Quidco or Topcashback and it seems a great deal for the following spec;

Thanks op. This was more of what I have been looking for!

So another £75 comes off this price, as most other sites is more than this price even after the cashback ?

Original Poster

yes, £75 cashback on top of any quidco/topcashback. if you have a laptop to trade in you can get a further £200.

Cant be any laptop to trade in, or you could just buy a rubbish £50 2nd hand one and trade that

can you send the link for £200 trade in cashback please

true;

. What trade-in devices qualify for this promotion?A. For your trade-in device to qualify for the promotion it must be: •A Laptop (minimum 10” screen size), Tablet (minimum 9” screen size) or Desktop.
•Fully operational, complete and undamaged
•No more than 6 years old
•Complete with a working battery and power supply where applicable (not desktops.)
•If you are trading in a Microsoft XP computer the age restriction does not apply but it must have a valid Certificate of Authenticity (COA) affixed.

From what I can gather the trade in may not apply to non-business customers purchasing this qualifying laptop with Co-op Electrical since HP have only given authorisation to Dabs for their non-business customers to make the claim. Also Co-op makes no mention of the trade up to HP promotion on their website other than the £75 cashback. Nevertheless it's a good deal if it works - have some heat

I am aware it's qualifying product, but what I am saying is it's not clear whether this £200 trade up offer is only valid for Dab non-business customers and whether you can use it together with the £75 cashback offer as discussed in the thread you linked: here and here.

Bubba Shaboo6 days, 13 hours ago #274Dabs homepage shows:*** This … Bubba Shaboo6 days, 13 hours ago #274Dabs homepage shows:*** This Cashback offer is aimed at the Business users, however we have had clarification and authorization from HP that dabs.com customers can also take advantage of the above Trade In and Cashback offer.*** When asked to select business type – select ‘small’ and when asked if vat registered say ‘no’.Pity they've dated my invoice 01/04/15 :-(




Edited by: "ThreefingerSalute" 7th Apr 2015

Sounds good.
Maybe Dabs are making it sound like they got "special permission" but HP are just allowing consumers to claim the cash back too. The linked thread in OP suggest some ordered from elsewhere - but I havent read the hwoe thread to know if successful

Is there any were to check whether they are qualified sellers to claim cash back + trade up?

As long it's a qualifying HP product then I don't think it matters where you purchase it from as long as you have the all the details HP requests to make the claim. The £200 trade in offer is for businesses only according to HP t&c:

The Trade Up To HP promotion is valid on new purchases of qualifying HP … The Trade Up To HP promotion is valid on new purchases of qualifying HP Pc’s, laptops or Tablet computers (“Qualifying Products”) made during the promotional period 1st February 2014 to 30th April 2015.

For full details please see the Qualifying Products page.The promotion is open to businesses or organisations operating in mainland UK and Northern Ireland only.

Thanks. Dabs is offering another laptop in similar offer but they say regular customers can also buy it under business category

You can't raise the cashback claim until the 1st May. I'll try and raise a trade up claim today and post back when it's accepted.

The trade up gives an option of 'other' as a retailer. The T&C's don't make mention that it's only specific retailers that qualify.

Selecting small business and non-VAT registered seems to be a tried, trusted and approved route for non-business users.

Will XP OS be accepted only for PC or laptop as well? TIA

very good if you can get the 200 for old laptop.

Dabs are talking out of their rear ends if they think they are getting special treatment over any other reseller. They are just saying that to get you to order form them.

Looks like a good deal but 17 inch seams to bulky . Have some heat

Went for this when the other HP deal from Dabs was highlighted at the end of March.
£200 trade in for an aging Dell Desktop running Windows XP with the Microsoft Certificate of Authenticity still on the top. I completed the trade in online form a few days after ordering the laptop and it was quite easy to do. Trade in has been approved by HP and the desktop arrived at its destination today with the Parcelforce tracked label provided by HP. Doesn't even cost you to send the trade in to them In addition to the desktop they only needed the power cord so no keyboard or mouse needed to be sent. I think the desktop then gets wiped by the 3rd party (although I'd wiped mine and reinstalled Windows XP just in case). For me the £200 trade in was more important than the £75 cashback but, there is nothing in the terms and conditions that says you can't apply for both. So come 1st May I shall be applying for the cashback as well.
For me this laptop is as cheap as chips (having originally retailed for nearly £700) with a much better spec than the Dabs deal. Hopefully it will cost me no more than £175.79(£459.99 - 200 - 75 - 9.20 quidco)

Amazing that they can give you 200 trade in for a XP based desktop that you cant give away really, how on earth will they get there 200 back from it ? you got a great deal, well done.

I am really tempted by this deal, but I can't decide whether to get this or a better spec laptop, but like Daytrader said 200 quid for a XP desktop that you won't get anything for is a really good deal - that's if HP does pay the full amount. Thanks for info Pluves, keep us posted.

There is no reason why HP shouldn't pay the full amount. The only reason I can see is if the desktop I sent gets damaged in transit. I'll update once HP have updated my claim.

I saw this under the Trade Up terms. What do you make of it?

8. The maximum reward available is capped at 50% of the total invoice … 8. The maximum reward available is capped at 50% of the total invoice purchase price of Qualifying Products regardless of the reward advertised.

Well 50% would be 230 so your still get your 200 trade in, so there aint anything to make of it is there ?

What he/she says^^^

The £75 cash back is dealt with separately.

£449.99 now

Ordered this morning at £449.99

Believe from reading elsewhere that it also comes with a HP laptop bag thrown in as well.

Yes it does have a pretty decent laptop bag with it

Mine had a dead wifi connection! Replacement arrives on Monday

Help please. I reinstalled Window XP onto a laptop I intend to trade in. I used a different OEM (dell) XP Installation disk cause I don't have the original OS CD for this laptop. Although the laptop is working, I get a message saying the keys are invalid- the laptop is also a dell but different modal to the XP OS CD I installed. I contacted MS centre and they said that was because I needed the original OEM installation CD. My question is, would HP want to see the laptop properly activated, or having the XP OS keys sticker on the laptop be enough? Put another way, can I just wipe the HDD and not install the XP OS? If so how to wipe it? TIA

Had a stupid response that said 'This promotion is only open to non-business customers who have purchased the 455 G2 G6W43EA.'. I awaiting a reply to my response pointing out the offer covers many more models and this is for someone who's just started up their own business.

Thanks GodGoesWireless! Reading again HP Website FAQs, it says the machine must be "Fully operational, complete", see below. Doesn't "Fully operational, complete" suggest, it must have OS installed to make it "Fully operational, (and "complete"? Again, I just don't want to give HP the excuse to decline the claim. Cheers

Q. What trade-in devices qualify for this promotion?
A. For your trade-in device to qualify for the promotion it must be:
A Laptop (minimum 10” screen size), Tablet (minimum 9” screen size) or Desktop.
Fully operational, complete and undamaged
