Is it really that difficult to work out? this Lenovo cashback keeps coming back again and again in "deals", but it is for business customers only, and most people here will be private buyers. They make you wait 30 days before you can claim so that you cannot return the computer under the Distance Selling Regs. It's tantamount to a con to make you buy the computer, then get shafted on the money you thought you were going to get back.

Well, unless there is a manufacturing defect, I don't see why one would buy a laptop thinking to return it in the first place! I don't see any element of 'con' here as suggested by you

There's 2 cashback sites one is business the other isn't. However, I'm still waiting for confirmation of my cashback claim which should have come within 7 days. More concerning for me was that despite the ad where I bought it saying claim cashback and the Lenovo site saying cashback on the laptop I bought, during the claim process the exact model I bought wasn't listed.
Beginning to think I'm going to have to write many emails.

Comment

I have bought one of these and though I have not received the cash back yet, it has been validated and should be in my account within X days. The process was overly long but seems genuine.
Not a business customer by the way.
The machine itself is very good. some flex in the keyboard but this seems normal. need to cut corners somewhere i guess. Revoo reviews were very good and seen little to contradict them so far. Nice laptop for homework and browsing.

Good God, do you have to have your shoelaces tied for you as well? oO

Someone who buys the laptop as a "deal" because though they were going to get cashback would probably want to return it when they find out they are not going to get it.

By making people wait 30 days, it ensures that purchasers do not have the legal right to return the laptop under Distance Selling Regs. Couple that with the way that the advert has been deliberately worded so that there is no mention of the word business until you go into the T&Cs (and even then it only says "Are you a business looking at purchasing...") and you have a campaign that is a deliberate and aggressive marketing attempt to deceive people.

Just now placed order.

SanTokiMTB, mind your language and stop patronising. This is a good deal no matter what you say.

so if the cash back does not come through. how does this stand up for three hundred quid

CPU is more than good enough for general use, but seriously come on, this is just an ultra book CPU, why do you think the specs are excellent?

You have to wait 30 days after the purchase to file a claim for your cashback (ask Ebuyer for a proper sales invoice,which will be emailed to you in PDF format).Once submitted,you should receive your cashback payment within 30 working days

Am I the only one who thinks 1366 x 768 is a bit outdated now?

Looking for the best laptop I can find for this sort of price. My BIL wants to buy a MacBook Pro and all he does is browsing and word processing so I want to get him something that is sturdy, reliable and decent enough to last a few years but for half the price.

i suppose this is how much i should have spent ( cheap) in order to have new and better graphics over the refurb dell E6220 got on here...

...for half this price


My dell looks a whole lot more solid however

Bought one of these toshiba's for wife , failed straight out of bot with track pad fail, reading on reviews a few other suffered the same fate. be aware.. ours will be going back ..

I need a laptop that will play the latest football manager for my boyfriend. Would this one cut it? My last one overheated a lot but did manage to play it but it had a dedicated graphics card. I don't know much about computers but I'm sure the specs were a bit better on my old one.

I can't see any cash back offers on their site at the moment I thought it was just before xmas am I missing something.

this should do the job

Cashback not just for business customers. I purchased this laptop and qualified and got the cashback. My tip is to keep a screen shot of the cashback amount with a date/time stamp. Ebuyer advertised this as a £50 cashback when I purchased, during a £25 cashback period. Had I waited another 10 days I would have qualified for the £50. My other tip is to make a note in your diary as you have to wait 30 days before claiming cashback.

thanks a lot was getting bit worried

Cashback deal from Lenovo is really iffy. I have been through the process twice. Had to chase it up the first time and it took months. The second time they attempting to decline it, because the John Lewis receipt was also paired as a delivery note...still waiting for the £200 in this instance. While the prouducts are quite decent, it's a difficult company to deal with. Reps barely speak English amazingly.

"Mind your language" - hardly appropriate and to be fair you did totally and seemingly continue to miss the point that SanToKiMTB was making - this is not as much of a deal if the £50 cash back is flawed.

I am keen on this if the £50 is ok for retail customers - which it seems to be from rest of thread.

Guy, this is a good deal without the £50
£50 is a bonus and yes it is available to anyone

True...

I bought one of these as a xmas gift. Have submitted the cashback claim waiting to see what comes back. Decent laptop too, good spec for general use and 8.1 is decent too once you get used to it.
