Over the last few months, HP repeatedly raised and reduced the price of its Elite x3 and Desk Dock in the UK. Oddly, these increases and decreases have never been linked with temporary deals or limited-time offers; the company has simply been changing the price of the bundle every few weeks with nothing to publicly explain those revisions.
Just over a month ago, the cost of the Elite x3 and Desk Dock - which supports Windows 10 Mobile's PC-like Continuum feature - shot up from £706.80 to £757.20 for the second time since the flagship handset launched last year. At the end of March, its price fell to £702.
Now, HP has reduced its price to £673.20, for the third time since December - but this time, the company is offering an additional £90 off the bundle, reducing its price to £583.20. To get that additional discount, you'll simply need to apply the e-voucher code X375 to your purchase when checking out.
On top of that, HP is continuing to offer up to £500 cashback for buyers willing to trade in their existing handsets for an Elite x3. The exact amount you'll get back varies depending on the device that you're trading in; an iPhone 7 or Galaxy S7 will get you £500, but you'll only be offered £125 for Microsoft's Lumia 950 and 950 XL flagships.
