Use whatever you want for a company name (I used Raytheon, my quasi-former employer who sold of our division a year or two ago).

I'm banking on a "we're sorry about the pricing error. Please accept this $___ coupon in lieu of your order."

How long does it take for them to cancel them usually?

I gave it a shot anyway. If it works, I can replace a 30+ year old TV that's still in use - believe it or not, it's got dials to change the channel.

Just placed the order. Added a 5% off coupon to sweeten the deal also. ;) Fully expecting to get a cancellation email, but it's always worth a shot. Thanks.

Cool This will replace the 19" monitor hooked to my Dull Mini 9 (assuming it can handle the resolution) and give the the perk of a TV in the den. Hmmm - probably will be less than 1920x1080 though with VGA. Oh well. Thanks for the post and link!

Update Posted from my Mac Mini 9 hooked up via VGA to my 37" 1920x1080 - gets full resolution.
Now, if it only doesn't get canceled.

For a hundred bucks I'm giving it a whirl - we will see if it actually works - maybe a coupon that can be used on a Mini 9 will be the result!

My wife's already in bed, so I couldn't ask her smiling smiley I figure if the deal works and we end up with 3 TV's that we don't want, I'll be able to sell them pretty easily for at least twice what I paid. Or, if I'm feeling generous, I'll sell them at cost to family and friends.

Gave it a shot. Signed in with my password, like that will help. I have a 32" crt that is 16' away from the bed (converted garage-master bedroom) and was thinking today a lcd on wheels at the foot of the bed would be cool.

I could not find an issue - there were two discounts, the $500 for LCD TVs, and $50 off shipping.

Dayum! I did not even need a TV and I bought 2! One of my clients is always asking me what deals he can buy for him. A deal like this (if it goes through, which I doubt) I can sell a TV to him for $200 - he gets a decent 2nd TV for a good price and I get a bedroom TV for almost free.

Wow! That went fast!

There is no catch; it is a price mistake. There is a STRONG chance of cancellation, but why not try and see if it was to go through.

I'd say "don't count your chickens" until the TVs show up on your front porch. Cancellation can easily happen anytime before it ships (even if it's been confirmed), and could even be called back to Dell once they're on delivery trucks.

It appears someone in the Slickdeals thread called Dell, and that's how Dell was able to so quickly shut this one down. Not that it would've mattered much in the end anyway, but the cancellations are for sure now.

Order acknowledged

Order confirmed

It's worth playing. Always a chance someone will get one before they catch it.

More excitement than buying a lottery scratch ticket.

Why would anyone call Dell on this one? That is just stupid.

I'm in for one. Don't have a need for it. I already have a really nice 32" in the bedroom, and even though it's only 720P, I doubt the Vizio would be an upgrade. 37" would be a different story. If the deal goes through, I'll probably give it to my folks or my in-laws. Heck, maybe I should put an order in for another one.

Ok...I got both emails, and there is a hold on my card for the $104.xx amount. I chose to have them ship it on my fedex acct, and chose next day. My shipment date is 2/27. I have no cancellation email as of yet, but its still early. I predict we should all have notices by 3pm pst.

Anyone else care to bet on time?

Gawd, I hate playing the pessimist. I really wanted a 32" LCD for $100.

That's not an Import Fee but a California Hazardous Waste/Recycling fee of $16 per unit...

I just got my cancellation notice. However, they said that it was because it is out of stock (not due to pricing error). I placed the order about 10 minutes after it was posted here, so maybe they are using that as an excuse so they don't have to send out "courtesy" coupons for your next purchase.

Or maybe they really ran out so quickly (courtesy of SD and FW) and some people will actually get it for $99. Either way, I'm SOL (as expected). Good luck to the rest of you, though.

Still no cancellation yet. Order confirmation was 9:39 EST.

Website status shows "in production" with estimated delivery date 3/6.

They've debited my credit card but I'm still expecting this to get canceled. However, every hour that goes by without mass cancellations is making this interesting.

I guess the fact that they've canceled some orders as "out of stock" is sort of a good sign for those of us who are still in the game. Quite the discussion on some of the other deal websites.

The only thing that would make this believable is if Vizio declared Chapter 13 bankruptcy today.

What?! You ordered and then posted here hours later? What kind of nice guy are you? wink smiley

My router seems to choke on slickdeals so I wouldn't have seen it in time and I don't read FW forums. Thanks (even if I don't wind up with one).
