Dell.ca and their boxing day articles that never existed!
I bought one, went through the whole order process. Got email confirmation. And then waited. The website said the system was "In Production".
On Dec. 31st, Dell sends an email saying how they are sorry for the inconvenience, but the order will take another five days to be completed. The website still said the system was "In Production".
On Jan. 13th (!!!), while the system was still supposed to be "In Production", I decided to call and ask why the hell the production was taking so long. After all, I'm still convinced I was of the first early orders when the deal went on. The CSR tells me the computer I ordered does not exist anymore, since december!!! He then goes on trying to sell me a newer model : twice the price for the exact same characteristics!! I hung up.
Even if Dell knew the system was never to be shipped, no email, no call from them. Now in my account, I see "Cancelled" next to the order number. Is it just me, or does it smell really bad?!
BB/FS have a better deal on an ASUS system with better performance, but still, I fell like Dell.ca made a big and ugly scam about computers that were never to be shipped, just for the possibility that some customers would upgrade to what's available now (and overpriced, compared to the boxing day deals).
Anyone else happens to be in the same Dell scam wagon?
