Does buying in bulk save money?
Even though Dell discounts its products through WVU's Marketplace, we can still get additional discounts due to the quantities we order.
When your office buys through the bulk order process, you can place one order and then be billed. We even can split the bill over two fiscal years (June of one year and then July of the next).
Sometimes, there is money provided to help "match" the costs and can amount to a 30% or more discount for your office. This varies from year to year, so it's a good idea to replace obsolete equipment when the costs are reduced for your office.
Note: Please do not count on a "match." However, it's always good to have a "wish list" ready in case additional funds are provided.
