Q:  What is PurchasEdge?
A:  PurchasEdge is a rewards program from HP. Members earn points based on the dollars they spend on qualifying Original HP printing supplies, such as HP LaserJet and inkjet cartridges. The points can be redeemed for more than 350 of the latest HP products, such as printers and scanners—all for free.
Members have online access to their point balances and account information, and can shop for rewards on the password-protected PurchasEdge website. Members are also eligible for exclusive quarterly deals that help them earn HP rewards even faster.
Participating in PurchasEdge is easy. Ask your office-products supplier to help you enroll. They can even submit your invoices to HP for you.

HP LaserJet printers
HP Color LaserJet printers
HP Photosmart printers
HP multifunction printers (MFPs)
HP Inkjet printers
HP Deskjet printers

Q:  Can PurchasEdge points expire?
A:  Yes. Unused points expire after two years. All points accrued prior to 2009 will remain valid until January 2011. PurchasEdge members will be notified when they have points that are 90 and 45 days from expiration.
Additionally, if a PurchasEdge account remains inactive for 12 months or longer, we'll get in touch to confirm interest in the program. After that, a new invoice must be submitted within 90 days, or the account may be archived and the accrued points would expire.
