@Dan,
There is a $100 staples gift card today on eBay Daily deals, you get $10 free

Kasha

@Naphtali: what’s that?

Mike

I put in the order tax was added
Let’s see if I get it

Manny

Sorry. But it’s not a good laptop, and it’s probably not a price mistake, just a regular sale

mark

Got one thanx Dan

Naftoli

Thanks. In for 1. Lets hope it ships.

SoCal Dude

JJ, thx for posting. Perfect timing for use as a gift!

Anonymous

@Manny: I’ll pay you $20 if you find a core i3 dell under $200. $300 is a good price for an i3 Dell. Sub-$200 is unheard of.

Naftoli

Its a good deal. Sells for over $400 on amazon

Eddie

Dan, looks like a crazy deal to me, should I buy in??

Yochonon

I called Staples. The woman wasn’t sure if it’s the correct price. I guess I’ll take a chance.

Ydad

Wow! $432 from Amazon!

Joe

I purchased one but have not gotten a conformation email yet. Have others gotten conformation emails?

Jm1248

In for 2. Thanks

DEAD

DEAD!

AG

Check out the specs before buying. Looks like specs for a 5 year old laptop. 720P, no HDMI and VGA out? Not a bad price but just know what you are getting.

Dovi

Out of stock

Makir Tova

Ordered one. Thanks Dan!

@ Yochonon – People like YOU kill deals!! WHY do you have to call???

Elias

Sorry, Dell Vostro , 14-3458, 14″ Laptop, 500GB, 4GB, Intel Core i3-4005U processor, Win7 Pro OS is currently not available online. Please remove this item from cart to continue.

Be smart

@Yochonon:

Dude, never call.

Dans

Bought 1 didn’t get confirmation either. Tried doing 2nd for family and appears to be sold out now.

Be smart

@Yochonon: dude, never call.

Naphtali

OOS In for 1.6 Billion!!

Jacob

Order didn’t go thru. No longer available

Dell Vostro 14″ Core i3 Laptop For Just $176.49 Shipped From Staples! Out of Stock

To Yochanan

@Yochonon:

Can’t tell if you’re trolling or being serious, but if it’s the latter you are an absolute idiot.

Yochanan

In for 12! The woman on the phone said she was getting 5 herself

Why Yochonon

Why did you call???

dude

Dude! Never call

out of stock

Moben

Out of stock. I guess its dead

Yehuda

I got it a moment before it went dead, thanks JJ.

Max

BTW Staples order confirmations are rarely instant. sometimes take hours.

I did buy but..

I did buy 1 but I dont see a confirmation email and dont see the purchase reflected in my credit card… What should I do?

Buyer

Just bought ten didn’t get any email confirmation. And I forgot to take a screenshot let’s see what happens

come on yochanan!!

Never call!

MK

Got instant confirmation for 15.6″ Laptop, but not yet for 14″. Interesting!

Rakesh

I got 1.. But did not get any comfirmation email yet.. Have the confirmation no.

pH

Sold out on-line

Anonymous

@Anonymous: you’re right, but I was really meaning about the specs. I own that same model, and it sucks. but I’m still thinking if $176 is a better price then I’ve paid…

Max

They don’t seem to be honoring. I got the order in on time but didn’t see debit on my cc and I’m on the phone with them now and they are telling me they are out of stock. I have my order confirmation number but they just said tough luck.

Anonymous

also got confirmation for 15 inch but not for 14

Jay

Seems like they aren’t gonne honor this price. No one has received a confirmation number.

Eddie

Hey Dan, I bought 33 of em to sell. Do you think they will sell,. There isn’t much of a history on eBay. But past has shown over $400.
Or should I cancel?
Psno know staples might cancel. I haven’t received confirmation.

ilanit

also got the 15 inch for 256.89, is it a good deal?

joe

if one hasn’t received an email does that mean they aren’t honoring it?

Mark

@Yochonon NEVER CALL YOU IDIOT stop following Dan if you don’t follow basic rules

Izzy

Staples sucks.
Second time that there is a deal that order doesn’t confirm at the end of checkout.
Done with staples.

Z.Mendel

15.6″ is still available and it is still a great buy. I bought two of them! Thanks Dan!!

Eli

Never received confirmation email

Anonymous

no confirmation=order never happened

Noam

It was in my cart. But when i submitted the order it didn’t go through. Called twice and the lady ordered an “under review order” for me. Hopefully it will go through.

At all

Firstly, everybody relax… No email conf just means their systems are back logged prob…

Secondly it’s not the phone calls that kills any deals it’s the company’s realization that these are mistakes and deciding not to go bankrupt because of a group of ppl trying to take advantage of errors!!

DXD

15.6 still available. Just bought one. Thanks!

Thanks Dan

Ordered – Thanks Dan/JJ. I ordered (2) $110- gift cards from ebay and got them within 20 min, then ordered the 15.6″ and received my email conf from Staples.

Giffy

@Kasha: its if you want to hook a tv to your laptop

Moshe

I got the 15.6″ thanks dan!

B.K

@Yochonon: NEVER CALL THE COMPANY !

ya

Does this have a slot for another 4gb ram?

dk

I called too and told them not to follow up with what Yochanan said, cuz he is not interested anymore. I hope that will fix it

jokes on you

haha this is a terrible computer, so to those who bought in bulk- jokes on you! next time do your research before getting excited and blowing your money on sub-par computers.

Sam

Looking to buy the 14 inch if anyone wants to sell.

Anonymous

@At all: other orders got confirmation. So no back up…

DEAD

BOTH OUT OF STOCK

Yehuda

@jokes on you: So if they can’t resell them, they’ll return them. Big deal.

david

do u guys think that satples will honor this mistake if i got a confirmation email alreaydy?

experienced

if you plan on reselling, these idiots such yochonon will always try to beat everyone else price and kill the item for everyone. just watch it will be 200 on ebay in a week

ChaSim

I ordered it but didn’t receive a confirmation email nor was money taken out of my account 🙁

statusUPDATE

anyone see the order within their myorders area under their account?

dood

Ordered 3 of the dead deal this morning… never got a confirmation, and card not charged… so not looking good.

Shmelke

Back in stock for $176 from Staples

Mo

How many people would have bought this if it hadn’t been prefaced “price mistake”? (And you guys should stop hating on Yochanan, he made an innocent mistake. Calm down.)
@Thanks Dan:
Interesting. Personally, I like the protections purchasing on a credit card offers, but to each their own. (I certainly don’t do it for the points, legitimately earned points are such an incredibly minute drop in the bucket for me that I always think about consumer protections first with items that might need it.)

Osborne Greene

Mo makes a good point. Possibly a plug for a frum Staples supplier? Either way I’m in for one. Last month Staples had a i3-5 Toshiba in store for $199. Curiously no mention on DD. Was pretty big on SD though. Those were an easy eBay flip.

Finally received an email from Staples for my order of one Dell Vostro 14″ laptops that i placed yesterday shortly after Dan’s post.

Item not available.

nathan

I placed the order the second it was on dansdeals, i just got an email from staples sayong out of stock, the whole thing was bs..

Louie

I placed an order for a Dell laptop on Sunday morning 1/31. Only after 24 hours did I receive an email stating that the item is out of stock. I am a very frequent customer of Staples and I was a happy customer until now. If I place an order for an item that is available on the website I expect that item to be shipped to me or something comparable if that item is no longer available. I don’t see how I can continue to shop from the Staples website if this is how you operate. Please let me know what you can do for me. Thank You, A former happy customer

Agoldsc

I got same email, and I placed the order the second I saw it on this site. As some else said above, please post if anyone has had success fighting it, or at least receiving some other compensation.

After emailing staples a few times, I did get an email that the computers were back in stock…? I called and they took my order… Thanks Dan!

Sam

I have chatted with them and called them and they insist they no longer have the item and that they will not have the item back in stock again. What did you guys do to get them to tell you otherwise?

AJ

I also recieved that email and just called and had the order confirmed.

Thanks Dan. I kept checking stock. Got one late last night.

I actually called customer service after getting the “out of stock” email and showed them how it is back in stock and they honored the price. They changed my order order number from a “draft order” to an actual order. Just waiting to get a tracking number.

Hey guys just received my brand new 14 Inch laptop…I placed the order on Feb 1st night around 9. Thanks 🙂

I placed my order right when Dan posted about this on Sunday Jan 31 and a few days later got the out of stock email. When this past friday i received my order confirmation email. Weird as heck. Just now received email that my laptop shipped 🙂

Can anyone who received 14 inch laptop email me their order # to ultikany@gmail.com? Staples asked me to prove that some customers got discounted price honored. Will very much appreciate your help!
