Dell's - Deal of Day - deliveries ?

Just wandering if [rfdlink=55]Dell[/rfdlink] is overselling ,without stock.With this last promo -

I ordered the picture frame on December 10 ,scheduled now is December 18th to ship ? A little close for xmas time.

Ordered the Kingston memory deal yesterday and today its delayed waiting for a delivery date ?

So question is ,if they ran these promo's knowing that had no stock at this time of year ??

An yah I tried their overseas 'SUPPORT' as it is and got tired of waiting online for a person to talk with on this .

Not good ...........

I order some Eneloop batteries, they say they are "in stock" when I order them 2 weeks ago. Then they email me twice, that the batteries are out of stock, waiting for new stock. Good thing I wasn't in a rush for them.

My eneloops were supposed to be in stock when I ordered and then they were supposed to ship today. Today, I get an email saying they are delayed. Ten days before Christmas and I don't know when I am going to get them.

It's usually a hit or miss.
I too, ordered the Kingston combo yesterday, and it shipped today. (Although i did get a delay notice e-mail)
If you ordered early, you'll get it pretty fast.

From all indications lately, you should just assume that "In stock" is more of a wish than a fact. They have no decent reasons for it.
My nick doesn't mean I'm happy any more than yours means you're a sex machine.

These are the exact 2 things that I ordered as well. The Kingston combo I'm not worried about the Picture Frame though is a gift. Seems to be that way all around though. We are waiting on orders from Chapters and Sears that were in stock when we ordered and now 2 weeks later nothing.

Lucky me, I have got my Dell DoD sales almost next day

If they are in stock, it's really next day or 2 day delivery
If not, then you wait until they get in stock first

So in the last 2 weeks, from Dell
  • Canon SD1100 camera - a week?
  • AAA Eneloop - next day
  • D-Link Gaming Router - next day
  • Yesterday's Wii Bundle - next day (shipped already to my surprise)

Gotta agree with hit or miss...

I ordered some 1.5 TB HDs from them back in the middle of October. The e-mail confirmation said expected shipping date would be 2 weeks from date of order, but I received the drives a couple of days later.

I also ordered a 1TB External HD from them the first week of October and just received it last week.
