Dell Offering Insanely Cheap Wireless-N Router

LinksysIt might well be a typo that gets corrected quickly, but Dell is currently selling the Linksys WRT610N for $20.90 delivered — less than a tenth of the standard price. Let us know in the comments if you manage to put an actual order through. Update: It's now been pulled from the site.Thanks Ritwik! [Dell]


    I just got an email saying it was an error and that their terms and conditions allow them to not honour the sale. They then offered it to me at $229 :(

    Now whether to fight it or not?

      I got the same email notice after ordering 3. I think if they had actually billed my card then there may be grounds to follow-up, but they didn't. I think they would have amended their conditions and processes after a similar issue in 2005, when the Dept. of Fair Trading sided with the customers.

    Dear Dell Customer

    We are writing to let you know that there was an inadvertent error on the online store on 7 November 2009 that saw Dell list the Linksys WRT610N Dual Band Wireless-N Router for $20.90.This was a genuine mistake and the correct price is $280.90 including GST. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused.
    While we make every effort to check pricing and other errors, inadvertent errors do occur from time to time. For this reason our standard terms and conditions of sale on the store state that Dell reserves the right to decline orders arising from such errors.

    As your order has not yet been confirmed, your order has been cancelled and we will not process your credit card payment.

    As a gesture of goodwill, Dell would like to make the router available to you at a special price of $229 including GST. If you wish to buy the router at this price, please contact Dell by phone at 1800-810-289 by 8th December 2009. Please note that there is a limit of one router at this special price.
    We again would like to apologize for the inconvenience caused.
