I notice the sale is still listed as a 'pre-boxing day' sale. It says it runs until the 26th. Anyone heard of any post-26th boxing weeks sales that might be coming?
Interested to know too!

Also, when it says the current sale "ends Dec 26".... will it still be valid ON the whole day of Dec26? or will it be done once it hits Dec26? :-0

Is EPP stackable with cashback? What about student discounts? Thanks
Isn't EPP only for employees?

Yes EPP is for employees only, but hundreds of RFD members have gotten away with it thanks to publicly posted codes.
Pepsi: First a XBox360, then a Samsung 40" LCD HDTV, then a Sony Ericsson W300i, then a Samsung 32" LCD HDTV, then a ...

Coke: What!? This isn't a $2249 Dell Inspiron 6000! It's an entry level $899 laptop! But hey, thanks for the two Nintendo Wii's!

Thanks. How much extra % off does one get (with EPP) on the top of 8% of RFD discount?

The EPP thread on RFD is for the "IBM Friends Purchase Program", which can be shared with non-employees. There's a separate "IBM EPP" that requires an employee number to make a purchase, which you won't find on RFD.

I would assume that the RFD cashback is not stackable with the Friends EPP discount.
These folks have taken over RFD, so I'm done here.

So is the cashback also valid for ideapads?

I wont be eligible for cashback?

Does this work? Am I stacking EPP with RFD cash back with this link?
Interesting. I guess if we get the cashback tracking code, it should work. Not sure if the EPP works ... Lenovo's site seems to be down at the moment?!

When does the current coupon (BOXINGDAY) and 8% cashback end? Dec 26th or end of the year?

Don't bother to use the link from OP with cashback.

For example for the T530 doorcrasher, use above link the total before tax is $1,169.00, so total after tax is $1,169.00*1.07 = 1250.83, if you go through EPP link the total is 1045.76*1.15= 1202. EPPu is $43 cheaper.

So, compare it with EPP before you buy it.
