New forum member “ricks” has dropped word that is offering the EX485 for $419 with free shipping, after $150 instant rebate and $30 of $150 with coupon code “SV2132″.


Also, I’ve gotten word that this coupon code does seem to work with the HP Employee Purchase Program (EPP), so if your company participates in that you may be able to get the server for as little as $347.99.

Visit to take advantage of the deal, and be sure to let us know if you make a purchase.

Update: As I was typing this, one of the weekly deal emails from showed up in my inbox with this info, looks like the sale is good through 8/27, but the $30 off coupon likely won’t last that long.

Actually you can make it even better by using bing 25% cashback. Don’t use $30 off coupon with bing cashback as it invalidates it

Your final price will be

599 – 150 = $450 + tax you pay now
Get $112.5 k from bing after 60 days

Yeah, who wants to wait 60 days, and **MAYBE** you’ll
get your 25% back!

No one likes to wait especially on rebates. They’re a gamble (I can’t tell you how many rebates I’ve been screwed on).

Instant Rebate or no purchase!
