Computers Dell XPS 8300 Desktop: Core i7 2600 3.4GHz, 8GB DDR3, 1TB HDD, 1GB HD 6670, 8X Blu-ray ROM, WiFi N, Win 7 Prem + 24" Dell U2412M IPS LCD, + 7" Dell Streak OR 16GB Dell Venue $1199
Edit: LOL ok cliffnotes...
$794 off of $1993.98

$1993.98 - $794 savings = $1199.98 + tax
Get a Dell Streak 7" or a Dell Venue Pro at a discounted $199 vs $348 (save $150) and still get the 25% off Dell XPS 8300


(Supposed to be not combinable with any other offer, but there is a way)

These are the steps to save another $150 off the order if you wanted to add the Dell Streak 7" or the Dell Venue Pro.
You can stack this deal with the current 25% off Dell XPS 8300 system by doing the following.

!!!Normally you are not able to take advantage of any other promotions with the 25% promotion on the Dell 8300 +24" monitor!!!

This is a modification of the current FP deal but with double dipping on the Dell promotion of adding a Dell Streak 7" or a Dell 16GB Venue Pro at $199 vs. $348

I have successfully done this deal and have attached my order, so like the saying goes...
You can bring a horse to the trough but you cant make him drink...

****End Cliff Notes

Directions to combine the 25% system coupon and the addon promo.
I have successfully done this and it takes a little time and work, but is very doable.


Add Dell XPS 8300 [dell.com] to cart,
1006G46FQ7NZ1J = $999.99
at the last screen you can add the Dell Streak 7" or a Dell Venue Pro (Tmo or ATT). Pick your addon and add to cart.

Add a second identical XPS 8300 and the identical addon.

You will now have 2 identical Computers and Addons.
Enter the promo code to bring the price of the 8300 to $999.
The second item in the cart will be a full priced Dell XPS 8300 and probably a discounted Addon device (in my case a Dell Venue Pro)

** The trick is to get both discounts to appear on the same system order (see attached pics)***

This can be done by moving one of the systems to the wish list and re-adding to the cart, and play with removing and re-adding the coupon. Eventually you will trick the system. You can only trick the system if the machines and addons are identical. If they are not, you will have a difficult time getting both promos on one system order.

Now you have to pay for the FULL Order (2 systems, 2 addons)
Once the order is placed it will show up at 4 separate orders in your Dell Orders. (see attached pic)

Find the 2 order numbers that correspond to the non-discounted XPS 8300 and the Addon.
Call and cancel the "duplicate" order you placed by mistake Cool

Now to cancel the the add-on (I will be specifically talking about my experience with the T-Mo Dell Venue Pro 16GB)
The phones ship immediately upon order and can only be cancelled by refusing the package or initiating an RMA.
I called the mobile dept and let them know the order number and how i have a duplicate order to cancel.
They made notes on the order and said it will be no problem, send it back and there will be no restocking fee.

Cancel PC Dell #: 800-624-9897
Cancel Mobile phone Dell#: 800-624-9897

Deal Sweeteners:
4% FW CB (possiblilty of 4% on full order or nothing due to cancellation)
3% DPA

This took me some time to figure out how to sweeten this deal for the SD community.
Please Rep if you appreciate my time and efforts wave
Thanks!

I feel sorry for all the Dell cancellations.... Big Grin
