Dell small business is offering free shipping now. Combine the small business coupon XD8WLFNDV?7X4P (price after coupon is 799.99 - good till 12/31) with 2 prome e-cards (50 for each 300 purchased) and I got this for 699.00 shipped. Basically go onliine and order two seperate 300 gift cards. Combine both $300 gift cards into 1 $600 card on their site and when you call Dell tell them you have 3 gift cards to use - the 2 $50 promo cards and the $600 combined card. You will have to pay sales tax but this is an awesome deal. Took me about 15 minutes to do it.

Deal is still on.... I received my shipment notification today and it looks like this will be delivered by Pilot on Monday! Not bad for ordering last Friday afternoon.

How do you combine the $300 gift cards, which site do you use? Thanks for your help.

Go to the Dell small business website and do a search for the 60pv250. For some reason it is not showing up in the TV section. Add the TV to your cart and use the coupon - total should be 799.99. Get your invoice total with sales tax (shipping should be free). Go to the dell gift card site:

http://www.dell.com/content/topics/s...=19&l=en&s=dhs

and purchase 1 gift card for 300 and another for 300 plus your sales tax total - this part is critical. Once you get your gift cards, you will also get your to promo e-gift cards for 50 each. Go to the Dell e-card site and combine you 2 gift cards into 1. You will now have 1 gift card for for 600 plus whatever your tax is and 2 50 promo e-gift cards. Call Dell small business and place your order. Takes about 30 minutes to do - although I have heard that sometimes it can take a while to combine your Dell gift cards.... Note that some people have had issues with getting Dell to use both promo gift cards. If you do juse call back and try again.....

This math is not adding up to me. I'm getting a total with tax of 833.80. If I got two $300 + $100 promo I'm still $133 short. My thought is to get one $300 and one for $433.80. I guess you paid the remaining $100+ of the balance via credit/debit? I'm about to pull the trigger but if I'm missing $100 somewhere, I'd like to know where.

you need to purchase 2 gift cards. One for $300 and another for 300 plus whatever your tax is. Combine these 2 into 1 card and then use your 2 promo $50 cards.

Your final cost will be 699.00 plus your sales tax.

Sorry found the link after 30 mins of searching.
After two days of research I believe this is an amazing deal for the LG TV.

i have talked to two sales people in small business and they both have told me i cant use my $600 gift card and then use the 2 $50 promo cards right after. System doesnt allow that online or on their end. I told them forum members have done this already and why cant i do this. I dont want to be stuck with 2 $50 cards later. please advise.

this is ridiculous. Spent 4 hours on the phone talking to various individual sales people at dell and 3rd party gift card depts. I dont understand how hodge placed an order with 1 consolidated $600 gift card, 2 separate promo cards and a credit card. Dell said this is not possible to do in their system, unless i am missing a step..
Also i have confirmed you cannot consolidate promo cards.

We did this deal this morning. We consolidated our 2 $300 gift cards (1 $600 gift card) and had 2 $50 promo gift cards (you cannot consolidate these with the regular gift cards). We were able to use our $600 gift card, and *1* of the $50 gift cards, then our credit card to pay the balance. The agent we talked to let it slip that we could use up to 3 cards of any type, so if we had purchased one of the gift cards for $473.99, rather than $300, we should have been able to use both of those (combined into 1) and our 2 $50 gift cards. ($473.99 was our balance (with tax) after using a $300 gift card - you can figure out your balance by going through the checkout online.) Oh well, at least we saved $50 on a TV we were going to buy anyway and now have a free $50 to spend online at the Dell store! Thanks for posting the deal.

Thats exactly what I was going to do like you did, until before I read your post and thought to myself why not remove the credit card aspect and load another gift card, which i ended up doing and then merging again with $600. Now i am waiting for my sales rep to place order through and get this finished. Its been a long day indeed..
Thanks for the post, I read it after figuring it out, but you are right this sales person could do 3 purchase line items on his screen, meanwhile the other dell sales people claimed they could only do one gift card and one other payment.

I'm glad you finally got it worked out, AND got to use both of your $50 gift cards! Hopefully this will help someone else who wants to get this great deal (and hopefully the TV turns out to be a good one!)!

I ran into the same 3 card limit. Saved $50 with one but ended up with the extra $50 card to spend. Ended up getting a pair of Bose earbuds with it.

Just received tv in damaged box so checked tv to see if it was damaged before Pilot Freight Services left. Sure enough the screen was cracked in three places. Refused order and now waiting for a replacement. Members please check right away to see if your tv is not damaged. Anxiously waiting to hear from Dell now on next shipment date...

I bought a samsung plasma back in august from dell.(pnd450) it was cracked as well. Dell was a pain in the but to get a replacement. took almost a month to get a new tv. they told me I had to get the shipping company to replace. finally had to threaten Apu with the state attorney general(i was bluffing) to get anything done. Good luck. will not purchase from Dell again.

Several people have had very bad experiences with Pilot, some ok. For those of us who had bad experiences, it was a nightmare. I bought from Amazon and they gave me credit back to try and compensate me for the experience. Pilot said my bad experience was because Amazon has too restrictive of a delivery policy. Amazon was very interested to hear that. My call was them transferred to a manager for follow-up. Needless to say, their arrogant attitude did not go over well with Amazon. I wish you a better experience the next time around. Maybe Amazon will price match, or they will drop their price.

I am sorry to hear people had issues with Dell and Pilot. I actually went to the Pilot depot and picked my TV up there - this was due to a backlog in getting it delivered to my house.
