Families that wish to use the $100 discount voucher have a choice of 7 different laptops. One from MN Computers for Schools (MnCFS) which is a refurbished option, as well as six new models through a special purchasing website from Best Buy.

Please complete this online form: https://goo.gl/YRCk7X , and Bryan Berg will coordinate the order for you with MnCFS. A reminder that the purchase through MnCFS cannot be done online, and you will need to bring $75 (the cost of the laptop after the voucher has been applied) to the Dover-Eyota District Office as soon as you can so the order can be sent in. Checks should be made out to "Minnesota Computers for Schools"
For new laptop purchasing using the $100 Voucher on the special Best Buy website
An email should have been sent to the "Primary" contact for each student from Best Buy on Monday evening (July 31st). If an email from Best Buy hasn't been received by Monday, July 31st, please contact Bryan Berg (Dover-Eyota's Technology Director) at the email
The website that you must use to make the purchase is this one (this link was also included in the email that came from Best Buy): www.bbfb.com/psf/dovereyota (note - use the link that you received in the email to register. Use this link to log in to the website after you have created your username and password with the registration process)
The email from Best Buy will contain your Voucher information, so that when you make your laptop selection and purchase on the specially made website, you can enter your voucher information during checkout to have $100 subtracted from the price.
Note that your voucher will only work by using the special Dover-Eyota Best Buy website. The voucher will not work in any store, nor on the "regular" Best Buy website.
