Best Buy U.S. Decides to Sell $99 HP TouchPad

Posted August 21, 2011 at 8:01pm by iClarified · 19007 views
Best Buy U.S. has reversed its original decision to send their TouchPad inventory back to HP and is selling off their remaining stock.

Due to HP's decision to discontinue its TouchPad product, Best Buy will now provide clearance pricing for all HP TouchPad models regardless of previously advertised prices or promotions.

The new pricing will be as follows:
● HP TouchPad 16GB (SKU 2842056) $99.99
● HP TouchPad 32GB (SKU 2842092) $149.99


* There is a strict limit of one of each hardware SKU unit per customer.

Can I purchase a HP TouchPad at a Best Buy store or on BestBuy.com?
Yes. Best Buy stores will be selling their remaining inventory of the HP TouchPad at the discounted clearance pricing effective immediately. BestBuy.com is currently sold out of both TouchPad models.

If I purchase a HP TouchPad at the discounted clearance pricing, can I return or exchange it?
No. Best Buy will not accept customer returns or exchanges on clearance-priced TouchPads bought through any Best Buy channel (including Best Buy stores or BestBuy.com).

If I purchase or have purchased a HP TouchPad at Best Buy at the clearance pricing do I have a manufacturer's warranty?
Yes. Customers purchasing a TouchPad at clearance pricing will have a one-year manufacturer's warranty, fulfilled directly through HP not Best Buy.

If I previously purchase a HP TouchPad at a higher price can I receive a price match?
Yes. Customers who purchased the 16 or 32 GB TouchPad after June 19, 2011 may come into the store to get a refund of the difference between the price they paid and the clearance price. If this item was purchased on BestBuy.com, please call BestBuy.com support at 888BestBuy (888-237-8289) for the price match request.


If I purchased the HP TouchPad previous to August 20, 2011 can I return it?
Yes. Customers who purchased the 16 or 32 GB TouchPad after June 19, 2011 may come into the store to get a full refund within our return policy.

In spite of getting my hope up with the successful order confirmation email from Barnes and Noble, i must now face the dreading news... just received an email from B&N stating the following: " Dear Valued Customer, We are writing to you regarding your recent Barnes & Noble order for "HP TouchPad Tablet with 16GB Memory". Due to unexpected customer demand for this item, our inventory was depleted prior to your order being processed so we are unable to fulfill this item as requested.

Why would you want to spend money on the device that has no future support, with the OS that has no future development? Makes no sense to me unless you want to re-sell it to somebody else for greater price :-)
