    Dell XPS 430 - Any Spec Desktop Computer for Free! in fact Dell may give you £117,398.83

    Got an email from Dell for the new XPS 430 and there appears yet again to be a problem with their website.

    If you look at the memory options on the base spec, you can either: -

    upgrade to 4GB for free, or
    upgrade to 3GB and save £117,398.83

    Now this is a bargain if I have ever seen one.

    The only problem seems to be it will not allow you to add the computer to your basket

    Shame but someone may be able to get it to work.

    i think they will honour this - get in quick

    I remember the days when they did honour mispices..... SIGHS!

    Please edit title - should say £ -117398 (not £117398).
    Hoping to pay off the mortgage (and some) with this!!!

    Unfortunately I can't change the title to a minus -

    Shame - they did used to honour stuff like this - even if they just gave you the PC for nothing....:-)

    o i sees you, soz bit slow!

    Couldn't you add £117,398.84 worth of PC's to the basket and get them all for 1p Lol

    Those guys at Dell are gonna be building PCs flat out all night long. Busiest day ever they are gonna think but the bank balance is the same!!!
    :w00t::whistling::oops:

    :lol:

    I ordered too though I think I'll get a call from my CC issuer first.

    Do you think they set a precedent by honouring the XPS 1730 misprice?

    Perhaps, honouring the one will mean they HAVE to honour the other.

    :lol:I ordered too though I think I'll get a call from my CC issuer first.


    What? For the £20 delivery charge?
    Or the £117,398.83 deposited in there?
    Do you think they will increase your credit limit?
    ;-)

    At the very least it'll raise many red flags :).

    Guys, does it happen to you that when you go through the CC Visa verification it says 90000 somethign thousand you've GOT TO PAY (not to get). I called Halifax CC and they confirmed it was a debit transaction so it was going to take out money!

    There's not a chance of such a transaction going through, it's all a bit of fun.

    There is no way that order can be placed let alone be delivered as Credit Cards will not accept incoming funds unless it is a refund so it is IMPOSSIBLE. :-(

    You don't have to pay by credit card, I believe you can use Debit...

    I hope this goes through, it is all I can say

    £100k

    Well, I'm gonna wait to see what happens next....got an order acknowledgment, and with any luck this is all automated so nobody will notice?!

    I think they will notice though ... if 10 people do it ... it will be a £1million!!! going out of their accounts in one single day! It is usually money in for this companies, isnt it?

    Won't let me add to basket

    Won't let me add to basket though, hope they honour this but without the cash back also upgraded a lot of the hardware and still won't add to the basket. Anyone been able to order it?

    ha ha my order is -£195k

    Cashback will track as a % of -£xxx,xxx.xx so I don't know what would happen there :), it would probably be ignored as an error by the affiliate network.

    Technically you could owe the cash back people something if this deal went through.

    How is that possible? How could we owe the cash?

    They would never honour it, They do it on purpose to rope people in, Hoping that people put the mis-priced items on websites like this.

    You can guarantee they'll get a few genuine sales from someone off here. They may even spam your email address and offer you a discount as an apology etc..

    But at the end of the day they get some sales so they win.

    If anyone gets a call or the money in their accounts please keep us updated

    I will if I get one too.

    nowt will happen with this they will just cancel the orders
