Anyone bought anything from Dell Financial Services on Ebay

Postposted on Fri Jul 27, 2012 1:12 pm

I'm thinking about buying a couple of refurbished 2007 FP to flank a U2412M. Their feedback on Ebay is great ,has anyone bought anything from them? The 2007 FP auctions I've watched all seem to go for around $100-110 plus shipping. That seems a lot more reasonable than the $429 for new ones on Dell's site.

Um. I assume this is just Dell's ebay presence and would then use the same shipping and distribution process as the rest of Dell.

I mean, I've bought stuff from "Dell Financial Services" with my credit line with them, but that's been through the Dell website and via the Dell Outlet. Not ebay. I just can't imagine it'd be any different, though.

I've never purchased anything through their eBay store, but I've purchased LOTS of equipment through DFS in the past. I'd recommend them.

I have had a few issues, whether it be a failed HDD on a laptop, a non-functional keyboard, etc. but Dell always addressed it immediately and there has never been any additional expense. A couple of times they sent me the wrong laptop, but they take care of it quickly and it doesn't cost me anything to exchange, and one time they sent a replacement that was better than what I ordered.

They now have "tiers" of quality of their refurbished stuff. I'd recommend buying from the top tier. Most of the stuff looks/feels brand new. One time I unknowingly purchased from their lower tier and they sent me a laptop that was nasty dirty, but they addressed it quickly.

I'd imagine going through their eBay store you get the same service, but you might also try to go directly through their website. There are often 25-30% off coupons (sometimes on their home page or Twitter feed, email list, but most of the time on deal sites), so you can really find some good deals.

Thanks for the replies, I've bought from Dell directly in the past. I was interested to know if anyone had bought from their Ebay presence before, mostly interested in warranty stuff as they offer 30 day from delivery. After looking at Dell outlet they have the same monitors for $169 with a 90 day warranty which maybe a better deal.
