    Ordered two, might go through as some previous pricing mixups.

    For three, or three seperate orders of one each?

    We've had previous price errors on some logitech mice that went through. Some people's orders may.

    Anyone who orders this is an absolute retard. Its dells typical bait and switch promotion that the ACCC does fuck all about.

    As i've written on other forums
    • The TnCs clearly state that they have the right to refuse orders if there is a pricing error
    • they havent sent you an order confirmation email (therefore the "agreement of contract" has not occured)
    • they have not charged the $20 to your account

    For these reasons, you WON'T get a fucking router for $20. You've got a better change going to the pokies, and hoping you might just get a big win.

    Don't waste your time, don't bother. All dell is doing is signing you up to their weekly letter, getting your details & getting bandwidth on their website.

    heheeh. Was going to just grab one, but ended up grabbing two. I could always sell one or give it to a friend at cost.

    I've alredy got an account so its not big deal for me.

    Hey, you know, in the past when Dell's done this they got smacked whenever they declined orders by the ACCC. Once that confirmation goes through and the credit card is hit by Dell, the sale is complete and just pending delivery.

    I remember all the screens and hd's you people have bought in the past :)

    Cheap price isn't available in america...figures.

    Like they won't notice the 5000 orders coming through for a low-volume item in the space of 24 hours :rolleyes:

    In any case, as someone else said, its nothing more than an (underhanded) smart promotion tactic on behalf of Dell.

    you idiot, there has been numerous threads with cheap dell stuff just like this one, most orders got declined but a minority of orders went through and people took pictures to proove that they got delivery of the MX revolution mice (i think that was the last one)

    its all about getting in early enough

    theres no harm in trying, the worst thing i can get is an email saying i didnt get them OH FUCKING NO, i wasted 2min of my life!!! END OF THE WORLD

    This does not save them as the term is void for uncertainty and thus struck out of contracts of sale whenever a party seeks to rely on them and its challenged in court or tribunal.
