Looooong thread. Unfortunately the deal is no longer available. It combined a 25% off alienware coupon, $50 off code, an extra 2% for preferred members discount, as well as the extra $225 in dell gift cards.
I got a $2,200+ laptop for only $1,350 shipped though. I feel super lucky to have gotten in on it although it was kind of a pain in the ass with all the consolidating and a lot of people were having trouble getting in on the deal once dell realized what people were doing.
You may still be able to find a solid deal using this promotion though. Just look around for deals you can combine this with.
How long does it take to receive the GC & promo card? I'd like to snag an 8500 from the outlet before the current 30% code drops dead (possibly tomorrow?).
It's dead at midnight tonight. This is *super hot* right now for the coupon code. Unfortunately, I purchased two desktops last night without it, but I still got an incredible deal on an i7 at below 500 bucks...
Make sure your gift card purchase is at least $400 in one transaction. I got bit when I bought two $200 cards expecting to get the $75. I needed to use two different bank accounts and they could not give me the $75 since it was not "one purchase." I tried to get it through both chat and over the phone, no dice.
Let's say I buy 2 $400 gift cards and get 2 $75 promo cards, I would be able to combine the $400 gift cards into $800 gift card but when I buy something, I may only use 1 $75 promo card per order, am I understanding this right?
I am not sure if they changed the policy but I had them use the Promo Cards first and then the balance from my Gift Card (as they don't expire) and it worked fine. Remember this was during last yeards BF's sale.
I am trying to understand the above posts. Can you use the 400$ gift card + 75$ promo + credit card for the remaining costs, or do you have to call in for that?
Yes you can. Configure your system and save it in Cart and use the Chat option to place the order. It takes a while but gets the job done.
