Just read through the details of what Samsung is offering and it's a very good deal. Read the offer here... http://www.samsung.com/uk/student/cashback.html Basically for the 256GB Samsung 830 SSD bought from any retailer, we can claim back £20 directly from Samsung. So that £149.99 SSD is looking much more appealing. I may go for two! Also although the offer hints this is a student/college promotion, there is no such restriction in the terms and conditions that I can see with a quick read through. So the offer does appear to be open to all residents of the United Kingdom and the Republic Of Ireland. Just make sure you buy the SSD from a retailer specifically based and/or registered within the United Kingdom or Republic of Ireland.
