HP is going out of business of creating HARDWARE not SOFTWARE. webOS as a software is still an unknown at this moment. As the statement goes:

In addition, HP reported that it plans to announce that it will discontinue operations for webOS devices, specifically the TouchPad and webOS phones. HP will continue to explore options to optimize the value of webOS software going forward.
webOS will still have support, devices may not. HP is already in talks with other manufacturers about licensing webOS as mentioned by Stephen DeWitt from HP.

REP HAS SAID TO ORDER THROUGH PHONE RIGHT NOW AND THEY CAN APPLY THE CREDIT BACK

FOR EXTRA DISCOUNT ON THE $150 MODEL

use coupon code SAVE30HP (for order over $150 only, so add the Pre2 unlocked along with the 32gb Touchpad and apply the coupon and it will come to 170 before taxes!)
...or add a cheap filler such as paper

SAVE15HP for the 16GB Model (SAVE30HP Still works I think for 16GB Model. Try "SAVE30HP" FIRST!)


NOTE: AMAZON DOES NOT PRICE ADJUST, UNLESS IT IS A TV!!

Target is selling them for $100 + 13 for shipping on Amazon so I'm guessing $100 will be its new price for the 16GB.

ugh not working yet

It is working. Sign into your HP academy account, click on the HP logo in the top left (sending you to the HP home page), then follow the Tablets links to the touchpad (dont search for it). It will show up as the correct price.

addendum

might be a risk but worth a try.


Quote from esd087 :
DEAL OF ALL DEALS:

1. Buy 2 Touchpads, either 32GB or 16GB

2. Go to the eBay Instant Sale site immediately and sign up to send in a touchpad for $168.50 back for the 16GB or $200.64 for the 32GB. (free shipping label provided).

3. Keep your other Touchpad for FILTHY CHEAP (about $70 for 32GB, $20 for 16GB)

per urlhasbeenblocked and conditions, your offer price IS guaranteed...but be sure to do it tonight!!
Pricing

All pricing is subject to change without notice. The Company reserves the right to make adjustments to price offers at any time in its sole discretion. The Company reserves the right to void any transaction and return the Product(s) to the Seller.

^they probably have over 1000 hp touchpads waiting to be purchased now. I'm willing to bet that they will go ahead and decline giving $168.50 each. lol

Maybe this:

17. What if the item has no value?

Our first priority is to bring value to the consumer by offering top dollar for gadgets. But if the product has no value, we will help you recycle the item by providing a free prepaid shipping label. The cost to you is still zero and you can rest assured that the item is recycled responsibly. The recycler that AllTechWholesale currently works with is ECS Refining, which is a pledged e-steward. E-stewards are organizations that are committed to the highest standard for globally responsible electronics recycling and refurbishment.

google hp academy, sign up for an account using an edu email. then click on the top left icon (bringing you to the HP home page). Then navigate to tablets (not by searching). Boom. Right pricing.

Agreed, but knowing them they'll find some way to wiggle out. Just trying to figure it out. Best of luck of course!

For those who missed out I suggest getting to their local Staples, Best Buy, Office Depot, Wal Mart, and so on in the morning first thing if you want one. All the stores are dropping the price as seen on HP's site. Target already did it and BB in Canada did too.

If you are talking about the HP website you have to use a student account or employee discount account.

To everyone using the HP website: You MUST follow the links provided in the first post of the slickdeals thread or the price wont show up. I did it about 5 or 10 minutes ago and got the 32gb version. What the links are are the result of doing certain clickthroughs on the HP website. They tell you the path in the slickeals thread if you want to try it that way. If you search for it it will NOT give you the discount.

I logged in the website then browed over to the slickedeals site and clicked on the link. Since I was already logged in it showed the reduced price.

EDIT: Here are the links to get it to show the lower price. Dont forget to be logged in as a student or employee discount account.

Corporate Perks EPP (available to anyone).

Purchase 32 GB for $149.99 (must use these links):

16 GB Touchpad $99 (MUST USE GOOGLE CHROME and login in to EPP to get price):
