Hewlett-Packard representatives at this week’s Macworld Conferences & Expo in New York noted that the company recently started
a new rebate program
for graphic designers interested in HP’s Designjet 800ps, 5000ps or 5000ps UV large-format printers.
Users who buy the printers between now and the middle of September can claim a check to be used towards the purchase of Apple products, or free HP products including an all-in-one printer or a digital camera.
Users who buy an HP Designjet 800ps 24-inch between now and September 15 are eligible to receive either a $500 rebate, or a $700 rebate that can be used on Apple products. Users can also opt for either the HP OfficeJet q55xi all-in-one device, or the Photosmart 618xi digital camera. 800ps 42-inch buyers get their cash rebate bumped up to $750, their Apple rebate bumped up to $1,000, the q85xi all-in-one model, or the 912xi digital camera.
Users who buy the 5000ps 42-inch printer get their choice of a $1,000 rebate or a free HP Color LaserJet 4550; 5000ps 60 inch and 5000ps 60-inch UV printer buyers get either $1,500 back or a Color LaserJet 4550.
