Dell bait and switch in February flier
Original post made by Mark Powers on Feb 25, 2010
This is classic bait and switch and was designed to lure people onto their website in order for them to sell a more expensive computer. Im sure the computer on the flier was never available.
Of course they note that the advertisement says "Limited quantities", and they are all sold out. I called the same day I received the flier. They refused to offer an equivalent system for that price, instead offering a computer $100 more expensive.
There isnt much recourse for consumers against this type of tactic, so the best I can do let everybody know about Dell's trade practices.
