They lock you into a vicious cycle of buying crap you don't need. Smilie

You also end up "double-dipping" the discount in your head. What I mean by that is: You buy this 55" TV for $550 and get a $200 gift card. In your mind, you feel like you only paid $350. What a bargain!

2 months from now, another deal comes around for a monitor. $350 with a $150 gift card. It's only $200. But good news, you have a $200 gift card already. So the total here is $350, you use your $200 and charge $150 to your credit card... but you get $150 as a gift card! That monitor was totally free!

But of course it wasn't free... Now you have charged $700 to your credit card (But still have a $150 gift card)


TL;DR: It creates a false sense of value because you count the free gift card as a discount when you first buy the item and you count that gift card as a discount in your head when you go to redeem it because it was free... hopefully this makes sense.



BUT with all that said, these deals are really really good. I have a $400 gift card that doesn't expire until July. I don't know whether I should apply it here and get this TV for $150.00 out the door or keep holding out... If anyone is thinking about this deal and wants to save a bit of money, I'm willing to trade my Dell gift card for an Amazon gift card and I'll give you a sweet discount.

So I've never done a Dell deal with the gift cards. What's the issue? I've been hearing some gripe about it

youve got to use them within a certain time frame... typically their best deals involve gift cards. so you end up in this endless cycle of using their GC's for "deals" and then ending up with more GC's to use. Other than that they're pretty great.

I can't speak to the negative experiences, but I've had multiple positive experiences. It works best if there are multiple things you want from the store that often come up in sales (e.g., I wanted a new TV and a new Dell monitor). Unless you're in the business of reselling, at some point you'll need to buy something that doesn't come with a GC. For that, I just asked them to price match something from Amazon so it was a fairly good deal. I had no problem chatting with a Dell sales person.

There are probably some valid complaints, but I've also seen a lot of complaints from people that haven't received their gift card even though the time when the GC is supposed to come hasn't past. But you have to be on top of things and be willing to talk to Dell sales support if something comes up.

EDIT: agree with erishun. You have to fight that urge to overestimate the value of the deal. Think like an economist I guess.

Can you sell them on giftcard deal websites?

Sometimes but they're usually so stocked up they don't often allow new ones to be sold

How does the D65-D2 compare to the Samsung UN65J6200 that is available on ebay for $799 right now?
