    I just finished my undergrad, graduated last month. Do you guys think I can sign up for the student discount? Does HP check with the schools?

    The discount has always been around 6% and varies a bit depending on the product/configuration selected.

    Does anyone know how the government EPP discount compares to the business EPP discount? I priced a dv9500t out using both my company's EPP discount and a family member's educational discount (the APP), and it came to the exact same amount. Would the government discount be the same as well?

    Also, how to people think the $150 "instant rebate," discounted upgrade to 2GB and free upgrade to lightscribe they're currently offering with the dv9500t compare to what they've offered in the past? Is it worth holding out for better "freebies"?

    If one just finished college (month ago) is it still possible to use discounts?
    What about K-12 students?

    Thanks

    Most likely, you cannot. HP keeps track of student information from my understanding, and works to verify each order.

    AFAIK HP Canada dont do much direct sales. So, any coupons/sales would be offered through the retailers. You will have to check if they are offering any rebates/coupons. The coupons listed are for U.S only.

    Hey guys my dad bought a dv6000t and I bought a dv8000z last year, because my last laptop a hp zd7000 broke. Do you guys think I can get 20% off the laptop if call hp? since the zd7000 broke a week after the warranty expired and I yelled at them.I'm also a high school student. Im looking to get a dv9500t.

    20% off is unlikely. Atmost you could probably get free shipping or a free upgrade. But since you are a student you can register for student discount which is around 6% off the regular price.

    APP works only with the Home(consumer) versions. There is no APP for business models.

    dunno if this is right thread but, i was wondering do you guys think there will be good hp dv6500t coupons coming out soon and do you think they will be taking away the
    # 75% off upgrade to 2GB memory from 1GB
    # Free upgrade to 120GB hard drive from 80GB
    # Free upgrade to LightScribe from Super multi drive
    # 50% off Discrete Graphics
    # $30 off TV tuner
    # 50 free prints and a free mouse pad from Snapfish

    when the coupons come out? (if they do)
    I was wondering whether it will be good to buy the laptop now or wait for coupons to come out if they do
    oo and when you use the student discount, will the $100 off instant add up too

    Thx

    Can I apply the 20% off coupon with APP? Does it apply after or before instant rebate? before or after tax?

    20% coupon is invalid w/ APP (I tried). It is before tax, and doesn't apply to warranty or add-ons (ac adapters, etc.)
