    Hey guys! I'm looking at getting the E248WFP 24-inch Widescreen off of Dell's site, as it's currently only $349 after a $90 instant savings. I've tried calling and "live chat" to ask how long that'll be around. One told me that it's at Dell's discretion, and another told me they were trying to clear out the warehouse.

    In the past, how long have these deals run? Or does ANYBODY have an idea of how long I'll have to get in on this?

    I'd buy it right now, but I'm waiting on my new 0% interest card. I had it sent to my dorm, and I won't be there until next week. I'd pay for it in cash, but I'd like to hold onto a few hundred for my first couple weeks of school just in case.

    Think there's a good chance the offer will still be there about this time next week?

    Also: I know I have to activate the card once I get it; but is there any chance I can call Citi and explain the situation and then they'll give me my credit card information over the phone?

    we dont talk of third-class brands in these forums.

    And my answer to your questions are "i'm not sure"
