Dell.com Master Thread

Apparently there is none, till now :D

There are 3 flavors to dell:
The average Joe can shop in any of them and the prices/configurations will vary between all three. Take the time to look in all three to find the best deal. The only caveat to buying something from the business section is you will need to add a business name to the order and just like a business credit card, this can be anything, ie: Joe's Deli.

There are always coupons out there, some are posted straight on dell directly at certain items:


Others have to be found (GYIF) and even if it doesn't list a code on the item per se, it can't hurt to try it anyway.

Fun fact, the code 50OFF699 applied to my order even though it wasn't listed but remember to enter codes in order. First, I entered 50OFF699 and then STAND4SMALL (thanks @Dan !) if I would've entered those in reverse then the total would've been less then $699 and the 50OFF699 wouldn't have worked.

Also, if you have not already, join the rewards program it's free money like any other rewards program albeit they expire.

Maybe this should be wiki'd especially the current promotions like this incredible amex offer and this awesome 10% off code
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

So I put all that together just to say this, yesterday I finally got around to taking advantage of the amazing discounts mentioned above and I chose this machine which as you can see shows a price of $729.

They currently have a promo of getting 1 year of pro support for free (usually it's $69/year) so I went to select that and this is what I saw:



I thought that was strange but clicked on it anyway and sure enough it immediately took $29 off so the updated price showed $700  :)

Then I entered 50OFF699 and boom, dropped to $650, then STAND4SMALL brought it to $585 pre-tax  :D

And hopefully after the above mentioned amex offer the total out of pocket cost will be $515 ($585 + $50 tax - $120 = $515) @Yisroel Tech

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Love this thread idea. I have no patience buying from Dell but maybe it will be made easier to navigate.

Preferably a 14" screen so it can fit in carry on.

What does everyone reccomend?

Is the curve screen worth the extra price over a flat screen ? Im looking at the 34in vs the 43in posted on ddms today.
