expired Some Logitech Gear - 100% Cashback Via Online Redemption - Starts 1 Feb 2011

4040

Some Logitech Mice, Keyboards, Webcams, Headsets and Cooling Pads are able to claim 100% cashback from Feb 1

see the website here
http://www.logitechcashback.com.au

still not a bad deal - given that after cashback, you essentially get the product for free

The stickers are on ALL the products at Dick Smith Arndale - and on the sticker it says, "Purchase me and receive 100% cashback". The upload is a photo of the sticker itself. I got excited as I thought I could pick up a logitech steering wheel with the cash back, but upon upon further investigation, I can see that only a limited number of products are included in this deal.

Only applies to these old models but 5 per household is not bad.

M100 wired mouse
M215 wireless mouse
K200 keyboard
C200/C210 web cam
Clearchat style headset
MK250/MK260 wireless combo
N100/N120 cooling pad

(Thanks POWERevolution)

As at 30/01/2011 midnight, this deal has 2246 click throughs. Assuming others out there know about the deal, consider what happens if 3000 people have made purchases

$300,000 is available for the cashback. If there are just 3,000 customers, so far, who know about the deal, that's about $100 each.

So, just a heads up there is a chance you won't get a cashback

      i probably should have put that stuff in the posting - oh well, i'll remember for my next one

      I think i may pick up a M215 mouse - then again, it's only $25 on staticice

    •  

      I'm sure this applies more products than on that list. Look at Flashi's pic. It's a V20.

      •  

        looking at the website - it only has the products on it that POWERevolution noted. I originally got excited as they had the stickers on the logitech steering wheels - but i think it only includes the slightly older, cheaper products. Still - free is free!

        •  

          A bit misleading don't you think? Pasting the stickers on products that don't apply.

      How fast do you think OzBargain alone could drain the $300,000 cashback fund? :p

      •  

        by Feb 2 I would think :)

  • +2 votes

    Sounds good to me, I need a cooling pad :)

  •  

    BTW can't claim from LTS as online purchases are ineligible.
    Which of the products above are good?
    And where to get the cheapest so we're all get more from CB?

    •  

      it says some internet purchases are ineligible - maybe Logitechshop is included?

      Edit : maybe I've read it wrong. I assumed it meant some lay buys and some Internet purchases ineligible. Upon reading it again, it may mean some lay buys and all Internet purchases are ineligible. Poorly worded I think

    Thanks for the posting. Only catch is that it is limited to the first $300K. So say the average cashback deal is $50 thats 600 (Should be 6000) only who will get the deal, and each person can claim up to 5 items, So I'll predict given the popularity of this you'll have Buckley's chance of getting any money back

    Eg 250 VOTES for the Top Gear magazine and probably a lot more visitors and non voters give you some idea of how popular this may be. And while you can by now, your claim can only be on Feb 1st. So good luck at getting on at 12.01am.

    Now if you are able to return the item if you dont win, that might be the go, unless the sticker has a unique code that you have to remove and DS wont take it back if that is (I would guess thats unlikely).

    I dont think Logitech have thought this out very well. Being so smart ($300K) with the limit, will probably mean a lot of returns to store

    EDIT - oops maths at 3 am not the best thing to do. The 6000 as indicated below by others smarter, is the go

    •  

      Yeah 300K is the catch!

        wouldn't it be 6000 not 600. shocked me for a second

      and checking the OW website, the most expensive item out of the list is about $35 so there is a fair chance that you would be able to get cashback

  •  

    Good opportunity for retailers NOT to have competitive pricing. People shouldn't care too much about the price if they get 100% cashback. The more the retailer charges, the more pure profit they can make.

    Obviously people don't want to be without too much cash for too long though, and there is the increased risk of losing more cash if you miss out on the cashback.

    Interesting deal nonetheless.

    I came up with 6000 too ;)

    i predict logitech are going to deal with more claims than they anticipate. but +ve in my books. We'll see how much traffic logitech can handle.

  •  

    Thank you. I might get myself a new cooling pad ;-)

  •  

    hey can we buy it say today and then claim it 1st thing on the 1st of feb or do we need to purchase it between those dates?
    anyone at logitech can confirm this

    •  

      If you go to the actual link it actually says simply purchase within that period, so have t hit the shops first thing on the 1st Feb!

      •  

        While looking up the Clearchat, the first review at http://www.logitech.com/en-au/webcam-communications/internet...

        "I bought these today and they are terrific. One of the marketing messages on the front was 100% cashback and to go to a website to log in details www.logitechcashback.com.au and it doesnt exist!"

        By Logitech Australia, Logitech Australia, 28 January 2011</b>
        Hi Robbo, the Cashback Promotion kicks off February 1st, so just hold onto your receipt and you'll be able to log in and claim then.

        EDIT: Conflicts with T&C though, it seems.

  •  

    Excellent, Thanks for sharing this. Will pick a few things on the 01/02/2011 and claim straight away

  •  

    Just be careful. Reading the terms cashback only applies to purchases DURING promotional period which starts 1/2/11, so don't buy until Tuesday.

    Also they said they will have a countdown clock showing how much of $300K is still claimable.

    6.To be eligible to lodge a claim in the Promotion, individuals must, during the Promotional Period, purchase any of the participating Logitech products (as specified below) from any participating store in Australia ("Participating Product") and follow the claim procedures set out in clause 7 and 8 below.

    I have seen many companies in US doing this but not much here in oz ..they usually clear off their slow moving stocks by adding the mail in rebates to get more shelf space..bestbuy and circuit city have them..i once got my printer in 100% mail in rebate from HP..

    this is great!!!
    last time(2 or so yeras ago) they had a microsoft cashback and HN also had microsoft accessories on sale as well, but it was not 100% cashback
    so this offer is AWESOME!!!!!!

    So where is everyone planning to buy logitech stuff from? Dick Smith? OW? Harvey?

    •  

      i would say nearest first
      REASONING
      you will get it cashback anyways

      BUT
      if you want to be super-super-super-safe, you could purchase from cheapest in case you do not get in

      • +5 votes

        Since the $300k amount is fixed by logitech, best we can do to maximize buyers/buys under this deal is everyone buying at lowest price. If everyone buys from the most expensive place then obviously fewer ppl can get the benefit.

  •  

    So what's the plan here - go at the crack of dawn to dse or ow and buy the products, lodge the claim ASAP and if it doesn't fo thru - return em? Seems too easy…

  •  

    Hmm they don't say when the cashback will be awarded or in what way (I.e cheque?).

  •  

    Is the wireless keyboard combo compatible with ps3. could I plug the usb reciever into the ps3?
    Great deal btw!

    •  

      Curious to know as well.
      Also, anybody know which retailers are in on this?

      Can we buy from anywhere or is it dick smith only?

  • +2 votes

    Ask yourself would you be happy with the item at the price you pay to avoid the inevitable disappointment for some when the cash runs out. There's clearly going to be a competitive component to this. Given Logitech applied the stickers before shipment they know they value of the product in the stores (reward) vs the $300k (bait) ;-)

    •  

      those stickers will be there, long after the cashback offer has finished, to sucker in consumers

      •  

        Agreed…and every one of those consumers will be entitled to a refund once they find out they've been suckered! ;)

  •  

    It doesn't mention anything about only having to buy from DSE… so I assume not - the OP just mentioned he saw it at DSE.

    To be safe - no harm in checking out OW / Harveys prior to the sale (eg. Monday) as Im sure they'll have the stickers out anyhow (just like DSE @ Arndale)

  •  

    cool

    Can we use dick smiths collect in store method and maybe reserve and collect on he 1st. Anyone done this before. What dates gets put on the invoice. When u reserve the item or when u pick up.

    edit: follow their facebook page and they have answered a few questions but not clearly.

  •  

    wow i just realized something
    EDUCATION TAX REFUND+100% CASHBACK = Profit for those with kids/students
    because you get the 100% cashback off logitech and you also get 50% rebate(if you haven't gone over limit)
    for all items i would say they are educational
    mouse, keyboard, cooling pad(unsure), headset, webcam(unsure)

    • +3 votes

      but your cost is $0. if you are claiming a tax rebate you are fudging your tax.

      another analogy would be buying a product, returning it for a refund and then claiming a tax rebate for your original purchase. hell, why not just skip the purchasing bit all together and just declare that you have bought $1000 of stuff on your tax return.

      •  

        I am sure many people do this anyway. Taking the risk that an audit will pass them by.
        i am surprised that the ATO doesnt audit all those with educational claims.
        Its just like the ATO is setting up the "people" for a sting some time down the track.
        personally i would prefer centrelink to get all the welfare cheats, as my tax dollars are being wasted on false payments and claims.

    •  

      that's interesting

  •  

    The MK260 wireless combo looks the best. Anyone know who sells it. I can't find it on the OW/DSE or HN sites.

    •  

      I'm been looking for this too. I don't think anyone has any in stock.

  •  

    Just to clarify my doubt…
    1. If I purchase any of these items on 01/02 directly from shop (not online),
    can I claim the money in shop itself?
    2. Can I buy these items from DickSmith, JB-HIFI, BingLee?

    •  
      1. No you cant claim it in the shop. You need to go through the website (http://www.logitechcashback.com.au) Im sure the procedure will be online from 1st feb (i.e. if you need to send in your barcode or jsut rceipt etc. etc)

      2. Best you check that out yourself - give some of them a call. Personally, i'll be going to OW coz they open super early.

        There are a few 24hr Kmarts out there if you're that keen.

    Do the products have to have the sticker on them to be eligible, or can it be older stock that does not have the sticker applied???

    Thinking of buying from MSY??

      I'm thinking of umart, hope it is eligible from there

    There appears to be no financial limit to a single claim, only a limit of 5 claims total per person.

    So what's to stop a small computer store owner selling a single mouse to a family member for $300,000 and getting them to personally deliver the claim form at 9am Feb 1st to the rebate address, hence being the first (and possibly only) successful claim?

    Logitech haven't thought this through.
