Get the MacBook Air (2017, 128GB, 1.8GHz, 8GB RAM) for approx. £600 only! Here's how: Barclays was offering cashback of 10% at the moment at Curry's/PCW (now 1%) + Curry's/PCW is offering a cool £125 trade in special offer for any working laptop in decent condition (traded in a 5 year old Compaq Celeron). Curry's/PCW is price matching Argos' current deal price on this product at £799 online (in store is £ 879). These 2 offers bring the price down to below the £600 mark. Without cashback it's £675 - which is a very good price in itself.

Alternatively Barclay's was also offering 10% cashback on Argos (now 1%) + the £10 Argos voucher for spend over £100 (maybe even the 5% Fast Track collection promo pass offer for £5 could be clubbed), particularly if you don't have an old device to trade in.

Stupid question probably, but do I have to bank with Barclays to get the 10% off?

Logistically, how would this work with the trade in and Cashback? I thought you had to buy online for Barclays Cashback?

Sorry but the Currys/PC World 10% doesn't seem to be active anymore via Barclays app

This is another curry's non existence deal, someone keeps posting these for at least two weeks now!!

The trade in seems legit

voted hot. It is slightly better deal than what I got the other day (assuming Barclays and Trade in offers work together logistically - I think trade in only applies to in-store purchases(?)):

This is what I got:

price match £799
less trade in £125
less 7% employee discount £47

Total price paid: £626

Even without the employee discount and Barclay discount, you can get this for £674 with trade in - that's' a very good price. However, it's only 128GB disc capacity.

The 256 GB version can be got from Curry's for £950 via price match with Argos (less the above discounts).
.
I got this for my daughters university work - mostly essay writing and surfing the net - 128 GB more than sufficient. Can always put in a SD card or USB for extra disc capacity if/when required.

Go instore - the trade terms and conditions state they will give you MINIMUM £125 provided your laptop powers on and working. I took my crappy intel celeron 6 year old laptop and they valued it at £125. I also took my 10 year old Dell pentium 4 laptop which has a screen flickering problem (estimatated cost of repair -£150). weights a ton!!! and they offered me £125 for that too.
£125 is the minimum they should offer you. If you have a fairly new machine to trade in, you might get more....

i had a look and find it surprising that the screen resolution is so poor 1440x900. i'm sure it's lovely but....

Gary Glitter!

Does anyone know if a netbook counts as a laptop that you can trade in?

Could anyone please forward Barclays discount link please, don't know how to get. Have a Barclay cc card and an account. Cheers

Apple- no thanks!

I think it would go against the reduced final price minus the voucher if you can do it in store. Just as I left Barclay's these deals come up

I’d like to know this too.

So would the process be:

click through from Barclays to Currys > reserve a Mac > go instore to collect, take old laptop and take advantage of trade in > wait for cashback from barclays?

Barclays seem to suggest any codes used will impact eligibility so this trade in may also be considered a promotion that will void it.

Your trade in will 100% effect currys paying Barclays the cash back . It will be flagged up and Barclays won’t pay the cash back . It’s in the terms and conditions. No codes or trade ins . A trade in is a code , the store put a code in to reduce the price after the trade in , hence the cash back is flagged and failed . But you still got a great deal buddy

Thanks, that makes sense.

Can I trade in Non UK laptops as well?

Barclay's T&C's don't explicitly deny CB for trade-ins (couldn't find anything specific in the T&C's, trade-ins are not a regular code as there is a physical exchange of merchandise/value); it has tracked so will know by end of Jan.. not keeping any fingers crossed as CB is never 100% reliable.. lol. In any case - as you pointed out, it was a great deal even without and the CB (if it comes through) would just make it sensational..

Photos of receipt and laptop or I'm right again. Been loads of these this passed two weeks, and given your new account and complex nature or achieving this deal, I would be suprised if this isn't spam.

Are you kidding- the deal is easily verifiable without asking for confidential information (receipt). So if I do provide you the details (and you are proved "wrong") will you stop trolling & delete your account on HUKD?

why has this been expired?
