  • sandgroper
    Check out the monitor pricing, its like Xmas & ya birthday all rolled into one! I really do think the orders will be cancelled but its worth a go, gotta be in it to win it.
  • sandgroper
    Yep, looks like someone at Dell is for the hi jump, seems they have a blanket $300 off everything for the early risers. Get your orders in quickly because once the office opens this will change pretty sharp.
  • admin EDITOR
    :D - beautiful start to the day.....
  • admin EDITOR
    I'm confused.... why is Dell flogging off with a $300 discount ?
  • admin EDITOR

    Error Your shopping session has expired. If you are a registered member, please click here to sign in to My Account. If you are not a registered member, please return to the product pages through Dell.com and reselect the items of interest to you. That's the message I get when I try to checkout =(
  • admin EDITOR
    Ok.... I now own a wireless printer according to the Dell site. That means orders are going through.
  • admin EDITOR
    khaz0r - shut the window and go back through again. It works - I got the same message as you first time round and thought it was me.
  • khaz0r
    admin can you try to put through a Monitor? because it doesnt seem to work for me.
  • admin EDITOR
    shut the pop up that is
  • admin EDITOR
    gimme a sec - will try
  • admin EDITOR
    yepo - it'll go through for me. Just check when you hit the customise button. It should show you the price on the right hand side - if it doesnt you'll get the same error as you got first time
  • khaz0r
    Yep I always get the price on the right hand side but when I go to checkout it comes up with an error. Btw do I need to become a Dell member?
  • admin EDITOR
    ha - now getting the error again when I try to add it to the cart.
  • admin EDITOR
    no you dont - I used the dont register when the printer went through for me.
  • khaz0r
    damn.. $300 storewide, thats pretty awesome. shame i cant get the monitor.
  • admin EDITOR
    :D wonder if they've picked this up. The same process when I got the printer now generates the error message.. just trying to see if I can find another way.
  • khaz0r
    Yeah, I've been trying to test if other products will go through. I tried various products and none would work =( I think you got lucky admin with your purchase =D
  • khaz0r
    hey im getting through now :o
  • admin EDITOR
    :D - I just registered to see if that works
  • khaz0r
    nah i got it workiing!! i just put my order through =]
  • admin EDITOR
    :D - awesome.... 5 x 22" Dell monitors for a knock down price of $243...... I reckon this is a hot hot deal sandy.
  • khaz0r
    Very hot! I hope they don't cancel the orders though =(
  • admin EDITOR
    lets see if they honour it. Great publicity for Dell in any case if it is a mistake. They're smart....credit to them
  • sandgroper
    If you can still get on the Dell site which by now must be overloaded, try using a debit card to pay if you have one. The money will be taken right away so they cant say later that your credit card detail was incorrect once they fix the error.
  • khaz0r
    Hehe sandgroper, that's exactly what I did hoping for the same result
  • neal
    I just jumped in and bought an Inspiron 1525 Notebook for $399 and then added a All-In-One Printer V305 Wireless and got it for a total of $392,they actually piad me $7 to take the printer,all ordered and paid,but i dont think they will honour the deal,said something on the last page about "misteakes are not ther folt" great deal if it works

    someone at Dell stuffed up :)

    You could say that :D It will be very interesting to see if they do honour any orders. Would be very generous of them if they do Thanks for the heads up Sandy :)
  • nod
    Hot vote and sent some rep your way too Sandy :)
  • lifeischeap
    Not working for me now. Get all the way through to entering payment details then the prices go back up to normal :(
  • khaz0r
    ah unlucky lifeischeap. lets just wait a couple of hours to see what happens with the orders that went through.
  • admin EDITOR
    what were you trying to buy lifeischeap ?
  • khaz0r
    the laptops are still working. its only the monitors that have been fixed up as far as im aware. edit: nope they are fixing them up, it was just that notebooks were last to get fixed up.
  • sandgroper
    :( Offer over I think, I tried several items and the discount is gone.
  • admin EDITOR
    ha - yep - same here. Either, they had a quota and its gone, they're very smart at their marketing and know these sort of things create great hype or someone genuinely made a mistake. I have a confirmation email for the printer but not the 5 monitors....
  • khaz0r

  • admin EDITOR
    am loathe to hit expired on this ... was fun for the brief moment it lasted....
  • fairybelle
    Argh, i missed out on the excitment. Damn
  • stilted
    I just noticed when I logged onto Dell website under my account - the Laptop/printer/Monitor show up but at full price..... when I placed the order the prices were at the $300 off prices It doesnt look good for the bargain buy.. :(
  • GreatWhiteHunter
    Hmmm doesn't seem to work now - pity :(
  • eron
    Doh, missed it. I was 'quitting' buckscooping becuz I was so addicted, now the first time I logged on after weeks, this happened.. :( I so wanted the 2007fp.
  • lilpretzel
    This deal is surely onhttp://i234.photobucket.com/albums/ee236/lilpretzel/Flamemove180.gif Sandy, you truly earned your title today http://i234.photobucket.com/albums/ee236/lilpretzel/dog_laught.gif It seems Buckscoop members scooped up quite a few products, lets hope all orders are sent out.
  • lilpretzel
    [SIZE=3] [SIZE=2]Hey admin do you think we will get cashback on these! (jk)[/SIZE] http://i234.photobucket.com/albums/ee236/lilpretzel/emot112.gif [/SIZE]
  • neal
    I jumped straight past the cashback trying to get my order in before things started disappearing from their website,now on reflection i might have been better joining the rest of the crew who did try and claim the cashback,safety in numbers type thing,i dont believe this deal will be allowed to go thru,interesting to see how many actually got their orders in before the boffins :D got into work
  • lilpretzel
    If we get the orders I'm 100% positive Dell aren't going to honour cashback, gee we will send them broke ;) p.s I was just tying to pull donkey's tail regarding the cashback! http://i234.photobucket.com/albums/ee236/lilpretzel/hahasmilie.gif
  • sandgroper
    I've had to make this expired, dont want to go getting members hopes up that the deals still live do we... Now to wait and see what Dell do with all the orders.
  • nod
    Excellent find Sandy :) Who are the lucky one that received confirmation emails for their purchases then ? Not that that means they will send everything mind you :whistling:

    :D:D - we knew you were going to stop using us.....
  • admin EDITOR
    There's a bit of wierdness going on at the Dell site. When I try to log onto my account it keeps throwing errors. Wonder if its related to the $300 stuff up as well.
  • artemishebe
    Unfortunately Dell is not honouring the 22" monitors for $49...doh! It was worth a shot though. Has anyone actually had their order confirmed? Just got this e-mail: Dear Sir / Madam, An error on the [url]www.dell.com.au[/url] online store recently saw Dell incorrectly offer a AUD$300 discount on certain products to Australian customers. Dell would like to advise you that this was a genuine mistake; Dell has not accepted your order or gone into contract with you and will not be processing payment against your credit card for the incorrect amount. If you have paid by direct deposit (e.g. Internet Banking) we will refuse your payment and return the payment to you. If you have not yet made payment, please do not proceed to pay Dell this incorrect amount, as your payment will be returned. Dell offers to either cancel your order or if you would like to proceed to purchase the product at the correct price, please respond via email, and we will get a Dell representative to call you and take you through the ordering process. If we do not hear back from you within 24 hours we will consider the order cancelled by you. The standard terms and conditions listed on Dell's on-line store state that while all efforts are made to check pricing and other errors, inadvertent errors do occur from time to time and Dell reserves the right to decline orders arising from such errors. We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused. Thanks and regards, Dell Australia.
  • nod
    :( :( A shame but the amount of $$ they would have lost on that one would have been eye watering :D A nice gesture of the first 5 or 10 orders would be good though :D
  • admin EDITOR
    damn .... I got two of them. One for the monitors and one for the printer. Was worth a try and a good bit of fun.
  • sandgroper
    You could always play the terribly dissapointed card if it was something you really wanted anyway and talk to a dell rep to see if they will give you extra discount above what you would have got via Bucky cashback had you put an order through on line. Other than that lets have the next misprice please Mr Dell ;)
  • bigal
    hehe the missus is always on my back about getting to work at a reasonable time... had a bit on this morning and decided not to turn on the computer ... damn would've loved a notebook and another display.... I could've atlease harrased my acount rep about it and see if he can wrangle the deal for me if I had placed one :P
  • admin EDITOR
    you mean you dont have the site on RSS mobile bigal
  • bigal
