Due to limited availability of the HP TouchPad, some BestBuy.com orders have been canceled.  We apologize for any inconvenience and do not anticipate any additional inventory.  Please refer to the conditions of use for more information on canceled orders.

The new pricing will be as follows:

Yes. Customers purchasing a TouchPad at clearance pricing will have a one-year manufacturer’s warranty, fulfilled directly through HP not Best Buy.

 

If I previously purchase a HP TouchPad at a higher price can I receive a price match?

Yes. Customers who purchased the 16 or 32 GB TouchPad after June 19, 2011 may come into the store to get a refund of the difference between the price they paid and the clearance price.  If this item was purchased on BestBuy.com, please call BestBuy.com support at 888BestBuy (888-237-8289) for the price match request.

If my BestBuy.com order is canceled, how will I receive my refund?

If the order was completed and your form of payment was charged, the refund will be in the same form as your purchase.  Refunds will be credited first to the original purchasing credit card or PayPal account, and then to any gift card or Pitch In Card that was used. If you don’t have the gift card, call us at 888BestBuy (888-237-8289) to request a new one. If you don’t have your Pitch In Card, you’ll need to request a replacement card online.

 

I have an open funds authorization on my credit card, but my order was canceled; when will this be removed?

The timeframe can vary depending on your financial institution.

 

Purchase quantities are strictly limited. Limit one (1) per customer. Best Buy cannot guarantee availability of inventory at this pricing at any particular Best Buy location or channel.

 

All HP TouchPads sold at or price matched to the discounted clearance pricing are final sales and may not be returned/exchanged for any reason.
