P.S. Added retailer to the thread title.

For anyone asking if the voucher has worked, why don't you call up and try to see if it works yourself????

A bit of advice - irrelavent of the voucher working or not, I was advised to always phone up Dell to haggle over the price! Alas, I was told this AFTER I had bought my computer in December. However, I fired off a cheeky email, and they refunded me £35!
#10
Yes it does work. It is for 1st time buyers...but we said ok we'll put it in sons name then. She then came back and said no thats ok and gave £80 off! :)

thanks for the feedback and help everyone :)
#12
Yes you MUST not agree with the price at first. They will lower the price or just ask for extras and just say ur mate got it for cheaper, they will then lower the price.
#13
I don't get it, surely phoning them up and explaining that you found a money off code on a public forum wont cut it... come to think of it, I bought a dell pc years ago - was probably in my name!

Good point, does the OP have a source for this code so I could say where I got it from if they ask?
and is there any dates on it? expiry date etc.

You can always haggle over the phone with Dell, as i received an extra £100 worth of stuff on my laptop for free of charge on top of all the other offers they applied as standard.

We also ordered a PC for my gf's son (totalling £454 in the end), which is where they can apply the most discounts and we ended up getting over £150 off the price by downgrading a little, adding other stuff on and negotiating some more but it gets a little harder like this but we didn't need the other stuff included and ordering another pc that was more suitable from the beginning would of ended up costing a lot more, which may be useful to some of you.

My friend is the king of negotiating with Dell though, as he always gets money knocked off and receives loads of free stuff, accumulating to a few hundred pounds every time regardless if it's not a top spec PC.
My friend actually added several things on to a PC package, got money knocked off and they gave him a 6MP camera, so negotiate for a while to get the best deal by being persistent and telling them what you want by being assertive but without being completely rude.

My advice is to call them and tell them you've seen a cheaper PC on the highstreet but you were advised from a friend that negotiated to try and see how much you can reduce the pc before you buy elsewhere (they may ask for there details, then they'll see on the system that that they negotiated quite a lot and they'll know what they're up against. If you don't know anyone that negotiated, PM me and i'll give you my details).
If they do ask for the details, that is a good sign, as they can see that they negotiated a lot and they now expect you will probably want something similar, so they’ll try and be more flexible and they only ask if they‘re willing to negotiate.

Unfortunately, you will come across salesman that will have no intentions of negotiating whatsoever and if this is the case, tell them you haven't got time, as you're very busy, so if they're not willing to negotiate, you'll take your business elsewhere and if they're still being difficult, then hang up the phone and call them again until you come across someone that is willing.

Once you do come across a salesman that is willing to negotiate quite a bit, make sure to get there name and extension number (this is crucial, as you will require to speak to them on more than 1 occasion and you can get them to call back as well to save your costs).
Make sure you don't accept the first offer, try and negotiate as much as possible and remember that they don't know you and they will never meet you, so you have nothing to be shy about but they're actually desperate for your business, so you can try as much as you want to get the best price.

I also noticed that if you tell them the PC is for a small business, they can offer you slightly further discounts, as the PC we bought was listed as business but the other salesman we spoke to that completed the deal knew we were home customers but went ahead with the deal anyway and said they must of been desperate to complete the sale.

VERY IMPORTANT: don’t forget to keep calling until you come across a salesman that will negotiate, this may take several calls to find the right person but once you do, you should be able to save at least a hundred pounds or two on any PC that is listed £500 or more (with money off or extra accessories) and laptops will be harder and have smaller discounts but if you negotiate hard, you can get good discounts too.

I hope this info helps and if anyone needs anymore help, don't hesitate to ask :)

I was told that the discount I had already haggled was the max they would do after several calls - got a keyboard upgarde thrown in free. He said the discount was not available in addition to the special offers (100 off) that are on the web site at the moment.

Hope this helps

#19
What about self employed sole traders?...or do you have to be a registered company?
#20
nope didnt ask for proof of company...

They will ask you to fax the voucher in though. But just get ina huff and say your too busy to do that and you dont know where its placed. All you know is that it was posted to your business address and you took note of the details. The Dell business sales guys are aware of it but just dont want to give it out as it affects their margins. So just say that this is your first order and your second order will be a big one. That will get them going......
#21
Spoke with Dell who were quite happy to accept this offer code, however I have just been called back to say my order was cancelled as the sales person was not authorised to give me 3 discounts (double memory, Free Shipping and £80), oh well.......nearly got a bargain.

But can confirm Sales person was happy to take code, with no questions asked.
#22
Anyone got a name and ext no. of some helpfull sales person at Dell small Buisness sales

#31
hey saheed
so how did u manage to convince them giving you the discount with the other promotional offers. ive tried but they keep saying i cant use the discount in conjunction with the promotions free delivery, memory upgrade etc.
[admin]#33
The code is in the first post....
#34
hi

everytime i enter this code on the dell website.i get the same coupon error message

any help?

thanks

From the first post:

Quote the code to get £80 off 499 excl. VAT.
But it says that the offer is only available by phone.
#36
As it is £80 off the price before VAT, the real discount is closer to £100.

I got it with free shipping, free double memory etc.
#37
i phoned up to negotiate but they weren't having any of it - no discount with this code, no free delivery, no upgrades... will try again with a different salesman
#38
I've just twice tried to buy quoting the code but they weren't having any of it. They insisted I fax or email it. I tried to cajole them but they weren't having any of it. "Rules are rules" . Any ideas - anyone know where there's a scan of it?
#39
Keep trying I told them it was in a green weekly leaflet "a week or 2 back" (which they would not still have) that I had thrown away and they hummed and hawed but in the end accepted it.
#40
Just tried again Thought I'd not waste both our time so asked at the start if they'd accept the voucher code. He completely sidestepped my queston and tried to sell me a different PC. When I asked if I'd get £80 off they tried to fob me off by saying it was only for established companies doing big business. I pointed out it was for a first buy in excess of £499 they lost interest and said I needed to speak to the Business department (fair enough). However it's Sunday and it's shut and I'm losing the will to live...
