Windows 8 pricing

I purchased an HP Omni all in one computer from Best buy on June 20, 2012.  According to the ads, I am eligible for an upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 8 for $14.95.  I did not prepay for this option.  Am I still eligible for this?

This is the best info/page I could find for you.




If you like my post, or solution to your issue/question, go ahead and click on the little star by my name and/or accept the post as the Solution. It makes me happy.

I'm NOT an employee of Best Buy, or Geek Squad, though I did work as an Agent for a year 5 years ago. None of my posts are to be taken as the official stance that Best Buy will take on your situation. My advice is just that, advice.
Unfortunately, that's the bad luck of any electronic, there's going to be bad Apples... wait that's a horrible pun.

Re: Windows 8 pricing

Thanks for supplying the website.  I used it and managed to get Windows 8 for the discounted price.

Now that I have it, I can see that it will take some time to learn how to use it.

If you have Windows 7, I would not recommend changing to Windows 8.  It is a totally different experience.

 

Thanks again for your help.

Re: Windows 8 pricing

If you do decide to play around with Windows 8 and need some help with it let me know. I am totally loving the experience. It runs great on my Acer 5250-0468 with 2GB ram. Graphics and browsing is silky smooth.You can also use the desktop just like you did with Windows 8 and much much more.
