Quoted from a member over at SD.

1. Deal was posted at 10:54pm ET
2. It is now after 4:00am ET
3. Topic has +1553 votes
4. Topic has 273,346 views
5. Thousands of orders were placed
6. Website is still accepting orders
7. They can't possibly have that much stock
8. Any emails received are automated
9. No orders get processed overnight
10. Nothing will ship

Sorry to rain on anyone's parade but common sense tells you no one is getting any SSD out of this unless they got a price match elsewhere.

Quite a few are already mentioning getting their orders cancelled over at SD. The adjusted price shows $19.99 as the discount. It was a mistake for it being $20. Dell just got a whole bunch of traffic and new sign ups, grats to them!

I only ordered 1 in the interest of flying under the radar (and I really only NEED 1 anyway)

Got an order received, and an order confirmed email, so we'll just have to wait and see today.

I don't think there's any way everyone who ordered these will get them. Question is, will anyone get one?

Ordered 2 of each m.2/2.5" separate purchase orders.

One approved last night with confirmation, then another just now got confirmed. Both from the same person approving which is JHOANNA_LAPIAD

I have hopes since I got one confirmed this morning right now.


Also did the free shipping

Order confirmed email just received so I don't think it's an automated message.
Hope it ships today.

Looks like some people are actually getting shipment confirmations. We will see what happens.

This is similar to the Dishonored 2 game for 20 bucks. Those all shipped so chances are 50/50 at least here.

Still confirmed but not shipped yet, hope they are just tooooo busy shipping out every item.
I ordered 4, split into 2 orders.

With the Dishonored deal it took them several days to ship, and then when it did ship I never got a shipping notification until it actually was already delivered, like 3 days later...LOL.

So I wouldn't worry about it yet.

I should have given it a shot. Dammit. I just thought there was no chance of them actually honoring it.

Got confirmed we will see if it ships. Didn't need a drive, but the M.2 fills an empty slot so why not.

I'm located in Aus but I have a friend in the US who got 5 for me (i sent him PayPal money). Haha. In aus a single drive from my local retailer is 130 AUD. Buying 5 after international shipping will cost me roughly 180 AUD and any warranty issues i just do an out of region warranty claim.. XD

Hi Sir,

Great website you have here. Just fantastic all around. Only super cool dudes would be able to maintain a site like this and keep it this great. So, completely unrelated, but...the other day I was thinking about the name "Kyle" and how bad-ass it is. Just a damn cool name that must belong only to really super cool dudes. Also TOTALLY unrelated...but did I mention that I didn't get much for Christmas this year? /puppy dog eyes

God I feel dirty for doing that... :D
Dude. I laughed so damn hard just now.
