Okay, so maybe you’re a little upset at yourself a little bit for not having taken advantage of the savings we posted on the HP TouchPad…
Have no fear, because you get one more shot… and you just might be glad you waited: HP is applying a $100 instant savings rebate to the 16GB and 32GB HP TouchPad this weekend, August 5-7. Check out the YouTube video below…
It just so happens that Fatwallet.com has a $100 STAPLES coupon off BOTH the 16GB or 32GB models this weekend as well. And as of today, the price for the TouchPad on their website already reflects HP’s $100 instant rebate.
If you want to save the most money, we recommend the following steps:
Once the coupon is added to HP’s $100 instant rebate, you’re looking at TWO HUNDRED BUCKS off of your purchase of either a 16GB TouchPad (new price: $299) or 32GB TouchPad (new price: $399) Yeah… holy crap. Ridonkulous.
UPDATE: We can confirm that this works! Check out the pics of receipts (from Staples and Office Depot!) in the gallery below.
We honestly don’t see why Staples (or perhaps a competitor) wouldn’t honor their $100-off coupon in combination with HP’s $100 instant rebate. However, if they don’t we suggest another route for saving tons of money…
Go to HP Academy and set up an account. This works for both current students and alumni of accredited universities/colleges.
After the account is created you will be taken to HP’s online store where you can choose either a 16 or 32GB TouchPad. The academy discount will give you a $25off the 16GB TouchPad and $42 off the 32GB TouchPad.
Use the promo code “LOGICBUY30” to get an additional $30discount. (Disclaimer: we’re not 100% sure this coupon will still work by 8/5, but it works as of this writing.)
Assuming these discounts can all be added together:
The final price on the 16GB TouchPad could be as low as $344!
The final price on the 32GB TouchPad would be as low as $427.
We’ll keep a close eye on this on Friday… if our calculations are correct, you guys are gonna be able to save BOO-KOO BUCKS on a TouchPad. The only other tablet worth its salt in that price range is the 7″ Samsung Galaxy Tab. This could be a ridiculous deal for the enterprising consumer… THAT’S YOU!
UPDATE:HP.com/offer has finally updated their website to reflect these prices, and have included the 32GB TouchPad in the $100 rebate mix for this weekend! Our article has been updated to reflect these changes.
UPDATE 2: We’ve just received phone confirmation through local sales associates at our local Staples stores that their $100 coupon CAN be combined with HP’s $100 instant rebate. That’s TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS OFF, baby!!! While supplies last…
UPDATE 3:Looks like we’ve cleaned out all 16GB models from Staples stores! Nice going, guys! For those who couldn’t take advantage of it in time, $399 is still a crazy deal for 32GB models. We highly recommend snatching one of those up at this price. You could also try and get your local Staples to give you an I.O.U. and ship you a 16GB when they get it back in stock… your mileage may vary, of course. Reminder: PLAN B still works!!!
