Re: Unbelievable - brand new Samsung i5 laptops at 399 CHF from Interdiscount.

So sorry to spoil the joy
I talked again to Interdiscount:
IT IS A MISTAKE IN PRINT
The notebook is 699 chf

No, That monitor is only 99chf if you bring in the Bon... so regular price of 149 holds true unless you have the voucher.

With the Lappy, it's at a discounted price of 699 PLUS if you bring in the Bon a further 300chf

Oh and FYI for all those about to ask, it says clearly this offer is not valid online, so it will always say not available. All the stores should have stock, just punch in your location PLZ and it'll give u the closes shops with stock.

My learned colleague informs me that the screen could be a little better on these but the price is excellent
Hi Mikee,

The Interdiscount Samsung model isn't the same as the one in the Misco webpage. It's got a "curved" white shell, for a start. Then a 500Gb hard disc, and 512Mb graphics, not 1Gb.

As I said, trot along to the Zurich branch, where they have one on display. I was expecting to go along and see a so-so end-of-line laptop that was barely worth the 399 CHF... but it's actually very stylish.

But.. go on the assumption that either the voucher is a mistake, or that there's very little stock available...

I mean, why would InterDiscount release a new flyer, with a front page telling the world about a laptop reduced from 899 CHF to 699 CHF... but then their website is letting people buy it for 399 CHF ? That's gotta be a cock-up...

Certainly, print out the 300 CHF discount voucher today, if nothing else. I reckon that'll get pulled soon...



Mike
P.S. Glad to see this tip went down well !

It might be a mistake, but the voucher is still online, with the same Product ID number as the item in their flyer.

(And yes, when I bought mine at lunchtime, I was thoroughly expecting to hear that it was a mistake, or couldn't be honoured.... perhaps I should've bought a few !!)

My tip: Act stupid. Go along to InterDiscount, ask to buy this model, and at the checkout, present the voucher with their new flyer (showing the 699 CHF price), tell them you printed out the voucher from their website today, and if they give you any problem, ask them why they won't accept it. Remember: the voucher clearly says:

* Preis nur mit Bon gültig. 27.06.2011 bis 10.07.2011

... so they can't exactly say that it's expired !!!

Re: Unbelievable - brand new Samsung i5 laptops at 399 CHF from Interdiscount.

OMG! I just bought a Acer laptop from M electronic. I got 100 franc discount and quite happy. But now I am no more and wondering am I too early to buy this laptop or UncleMike is too late to write this thread.

May one easily change Windows 7 installed on this laptop to an English version?

Interdiscount Dietlikon guy was very confused. He will call me back in a few minutes. So stand by for more news!

Not convinced it is an Intel Core i5.

A quick search of the model number shows it as an Intel Core i3 and the SF310 has the Intel Core i5.

Re: Unbelievable - brand new Samsung i5 laptops at 399 CHF from Interdiscount.

This is all very exciting !!! I was wondering what I will do today at work

Don't call the stores..just go to a nearby one and pick one up . By calling, you probably alerting them of their cock up.

Sigh.
It's sat on my desk next to me. It has an Intel i5 sticker on it.
The box has a label saying Intel i5 480M on it.
The advert says it's an i5.

It's not an i3 (otherwise I wouldn't be praising the price so much ) !!!

EXACTLY !!!!!

Go along, play dumb, take a copy of their flyer, and the voucher.

The more people who ring up to query this offer, the greater the chance that they'll realise their mistake and spoil it for all of us.

Please - by all means, ring them up, check their stock and reserve a laptop... but don't mention the voucher!

Re: Unbelievable - brand new Samsung i5 laptops at 399 CHF from Interdiscount.

Hi guys,

I just came from the Interdiscount in Cham, the guy looked quite surprised and he even went inside to check with supervisor/supercomputer/internet/God or whatever and he came back and honored the voucher, but not quite convinced.

So, I am now the proud owner of a brand new super-discounted laptop. Thanks UncleMike! .

My guess is that this is a mix-up between two promotions which are overlapping and it should not last long ... or maybe not, who knows?

What I am certain is that these laptops will disappear quite soon, the stores are being emptied as we discuss here. I even was in the Zug branch first and there they had only the one in exhibition (all scratched and dirty), but they told me there that in Cham they had just one in storage so I run over there to find it for the grabs.

Happy hunting!

Definitely not gonna be your flagship pc---if you're at all a comp-nerd. But it is a sick deal.

I don't need it at all, but I have issues passing up a good deal.
