The Dell Outlet

Shopping at outlet stores is an excellent way to save money and the Dell Outlet is no exception. You never know what’s going to be there, there are no custom builds and if you don’t buy it right now it’ll be gone in 15 minutes but you’ll save about 30% off of the purchase. If you know exactly what you’re looking for, it can work. Outlet shopping is only for those that don’t need our help. The time limit so tight that you need to be the self-service type.

Here’s how you use the Dell Outlet

  1. Figure out exactly what you need before going to the outlet.
  2. Visit
  3. Search for the computer you need by model.
  4. Select 1 other sub-category. I usually choose ram or processor speed.
  5. Sort the list by what ever makes sense to you.
  6. Click on the service tag number to view the specifications.
  7. Add your finalists to your cart. This lets you reserve them for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes they’ll go back into the pool. You only have 15 minutes to make your purchase.

You get a full warranty with outlet items. In the outlet are several types of items: scratch and dent, returns, ordered but never paid, and off-lease. Ordered but never paid are the ones you’re looking for. Dell built the box, but the order fell through. No one has touched these and now they are on sale!

I received a extra discount code today that I want to share with you. First come, first served. I only have 1 for each category and it can only be used once. So if you are planning to make a purchase, e-mail me to see if the code is left for that item. (Some of you may have also received codes from Dell. If you did and you don’t plan on using it, please pass it along.)

The codes are for an additional 15% off: Studio Laptop, XPS Desktop, and Inspiron Mini.
