Dell Sale $300 off lots of kit site wide. 22"TFT for $49 cant be right ;-)

Posted By: sandgroper, posted 2008/08/22 06:05
I think there may be a problem on the website or Dell have lost the plot somehow as the kits getting too cheap.

$399 for an Inspiron 1525 notebook with 2Ghz cpu, 1gig, 160GB, dvdrw

Posting this quickly so you will need to take a look yourselves to see whats the best $300 off bargain

    Dell E228WFP 22" Widescreen Flat Panel Monitor $49!!
  • sandgroper2008/08/22 06:08:20
    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.
  • sandgroper2008/08/22 06:14:20
    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.
  • admin2008/08/22 06:46:44
    :D - beautiful start to the day.....
  • admin2008/08/22 06:50:45
    I'm confused.... why is Dell flogging off with a $300 discount ?
  • admin2008/08/22 06:54:50
    thats insane... just looked at the monitor deal

    laughing my butt off

    That's the message I get when I try to checkout =(
  • admin2008/08/22 07:15:16
    Ok.... I now own a wireless printer according to the Dell site. That means orders are going through.
  • admin2008/08/22 07:16:08
    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.
  • khaz0r2008/08/22 07:16:25
    admin can you try to put through a Monitor? because it doesnt seem to work for me.
  • admin2008/08/22 07:16:27
    shut the pop up that is
  • admin2008/08/22 07:16:43
    gimme a sec - will try
  • admin2008/08/22 07:18:43
    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
  • khaz0r2008/08/22 07:19:49
    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?
  • admin2008/08/22 07:20:31
    ha - now getting the error again when I try to add it to the cart.
  • admin2008/08/22 07:21:06
    no you dont - I used the dont register when the printer went through for me.
  • khaz0r2008/08/22 07:23:15
    damn.. $300 storewide, thats pretty awesome. shame i cant get the monitor.
  • admin2008/08/22 07:23:48
    :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.
  • khaz0r2008/08/22 07:26:12
    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
  • khaz0r2008/08/22 07:28:35
    hey im getting through now :o
  • admin2008/08/22 07:29:31
    :D - I just registered to see if that works
  • khaz0r2008/08/22 07:31:04
    nah i got it workiing!! i just put my order through =]
  • admin2008/08/22 07:36:57
    :D - awesome.... 5 x 22" Dell monitors for a knock down price of $243......

    I reckon this is a hot hot deal sandy.
  • khaz0r2008/08/22 07:39:16
    Very hot! I hope they don't cancel the orders though =(
  • admin2008/08/22 07:40:22
    lets see if they honour it. Great publicity for Dell in any case if it is a mistake. They're smart....credit to them
  • sandgroper2008/08/22 08:00:35
    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.
  • khaz0r2008/08/22 08:15:04
    Hehe sandgroper, that's exactly what I did hoping for the same result
  • neal2008/08/22 08:16:47
    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
  • stilted2008/08/22 08:20:22
    someone at Dell stuffed up :)
  • nod2008/08/22 08:25:55
    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 :)
  • nod2008/08/22 08:28:43
    Hot vote and sent some rep your way too Sandy :)
  • lifeischeap2008/08/22 08:29:14
    Not working for me now. Get all the way through to entering payment details then the prices go back up to normal :(
  • khaz0r2008/08/22 08:33:24
    ah unlucky lifeischeap.

    lets just wait a couple of hours to see what happens with the orders that went through.
  • admin2008/08/22 08:33:39
    what were you trying to buy lifeischeap ?
  • khaz0r2008/08/22 08:35:50
    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.
  • sandgroper2008/08/22 08:37:33
    :( Offer over I think, I tried several items and the discount is gone.
  • admin2008/08/22 08:39:34
    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....
  • khaz0r2008/08/22 08:42:22
    I have a confirmation email for the printer but not the 5 monitors....

    Haha, that just made me laugh
  • admin2008/08/22 08:44:12
    thought it might be pushing the wheelbarrow a bit :)
  • admin2008/08/22 08:46:18
    am loathe to hit expired on this ... was fun for the brief moment it lasted....
  • fairybelle2008/08/22 08:58:00
    Argh, i missed out on the excitment. Damn
  • stilted2008/08/22 09:26:28
    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.. :(
  • GreatWhiteHunter2008/08/22 10:59:50
    Hmmm doesn't seem to work now - pity :(
  • eron2008/08/22 11:10:45
    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.
  • lilpretzel2008/08/22 12:43:30
    [COLOR=Indigo]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.[/COLOR]
  • lilpretzel2008/08/22 12:45:33
    [SIZE=3][COLOR=Indigo][SIZE=2]Hey admin do you think we will get cashback on these! (jk)[/SIZE]

  • neal2008/08/22 13:34:06
    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
  • lilpretzel2008/08/22 14:36:52
    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!
