Ok some of you might remember my thread on my Alienware laptop I bought...For those that need a refresher...here it is...

Click Me

Well.....So about 15 days after I got my laptop, my $200 gift card arrived via email as promised but my 5% one was no where to be found...I called them and they said they had a backlog blah blah blah...I was like no problem and gave them a few more days...Called back and then they said there was some confusion as to the invoice date (you receive gift cards 10-20 days after invoice) so I asked them to escalate this issue because I was wanting to spend those gift cards.

Fast forward a couple days and STILL no email...I called again and spoke with a manager. Now mind you the gift card was only suppose to be for $115 so I would have a total of $315 to spend towards a new 24 inch monitor for my desk. Well when I spoke to the manager on Friday he assured me that they would send me the gift card by today (because of the holiday). I said ok cause there wasn't really much else I could do.

Opened my email about an hour ago and there was my shiny new gift card....EXCEPT it wasnt worth 115 bucks






It was worth $460.....wheee.gif


Add that to my $200 dollar one and I now have 660 bucks to spend on a new monitor...(Was half tempted to buy another laptop just for the F of it...haha)

At any rate Was doing some looking online...Amazing has the U3011 on sale for ?1129....Dell has it for ?1249...Called Dell and they price matched the one from Amazon along with free shipping.

After it was all said and done...I just bought a U3011 for 500 bucks.... I WIN!!! I will post pics once I get it...Now I have to find a way that this is going to fit on my desk.
