    Talk to Dell sales directly. To make a sale, they will sometimes be able to offer a better price than what is available through their site or other distributors.

Tips

  • If you are confused about an online deal, or some coupon that you found does not seem to work, call the sales number. Talk with the representative to see if they can help resolve the issue and/or offer you some other discount. The sales department's priority is obviously selling, so they will often be willing to offer discounts as long as Dell is still making a profit on the sale.
