My delivery date continues to slip.

Earlier today it said September 6 shipping date and September 10 expected to arrive. Now it shows September 8 and 20 respectively.

Maybe I should have kept my T480 order during the THINKWEEK promotion instead. This date is too late for me.

so, can I combine the coupthink17 coupon with ebates?

it looks like the abse discount is 25%, plus another 12% for coupthink 17 = 35%; add 12% ebates if you can and its pretty good

how does that stack up to the best discount (blackfri35?) lately?

Would like to know also. I’m going to try putting in an order tonight and if ebates doesn’t pay out within a day or two I’ll cancel it.

EDIT: Ordered a T480s. Will report back in a couple days.

Just wondering if anyone has used IDME for a discount.
I see it there but can't get verified.
Maybe it's only a US thing.
Was just curious of the discount amount with it and if it could be used with ecoupons and ebates.

EDIT: Nevermind, I found out IDme is only for US students.
Not sure why Lenovo Canada site has it in their checkout page.

BLACKFRI35 was 35% discount but I can't remember if there was additional base discount. EBates was 7% at the time. So if you are getting 35% with additional 12% ebates, you are doing well.

Keep in mind that the % base discount really doesn't mean anything since the price seems to fluctuate. You have to check the actual $ cost for accurate comparison.

I ordered the top-of-the-line T480s yesterday using the coupthink17 code plus went through ebates and saved $463.63 for using the coupon and ebates gave me $346.18. The eBates website initially showed $47.34 but I did an online chat and sent them the invoice and they made the adjustment.

I think that this was a fantastic deal!

Unfortuately, eBates is back down to 5% today.

Looking to get 1 or 2 laptops.

Used the FNDEPP code and looked at ThinkPad E580. Upgraded a few things like processor, etc.
After savings of $341.55, total is $693.44 plus tax.

Is there a eCoupon or another promo code that will get me a better deal? Can use eBates as well? TIA.

You can try online chat but it's hit and miss. A good rep can find you a good promo code but many I've chatted with are somewhat useless in helping you find a decent promo code.

Try COUPTHINK17 as it still seems to be working. Ebates is less now but better than nothing. Do a comparison with FNDEPP.

Currently COUPTHINK17 on the regular retail site is coming up cheaper than FNDEPP for a higher specced X1 Carbon 6th gen. I would imagine it's the same story for other laptops.

Not for my ThinkPad E580. FNDEPP gives me $693.44 plus tax. COUPTHINK17 gives me $773.14 plus tax minus ebates so FNDEPP still comes out ahead.

I may wait until Black Friday, Cyber Monday or Boxing Day.
