YMMV Alienware R8 Desktop |i7 9700K|16GB RAM|Nvidia RTX2080|512+1TB $1358

-1 Deal Score

YMMV because of all the discount codes, but noting the deal because they all stack making this pretty good (imho - flame away if not)

9th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 9700K
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER 8GB GDDR6
512GB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD (Boot)
1TB 7200RPM SATA 6Gb/s
850 Watt Power Supply with Liquid Cooling
16GB Dual Channel HyperX(FM) FURY DDR4 XMP at 2933MHz
Wireless Driver for Killer 1650X (this was the only upgrade from stock I added)

Discounts:

- Alienware Aurora Gaming Desktop Price Includes $430 Instant Discount

- Members get the Best Price* on consumer PCs from Dell.com -$38

- Dell mass mailer this week includes a 15% unique code that stacks

- Amex offers of 10% off $1500 or $120 off - Note this order is through 'Dell University' and it triggered the Dell credit (I had the latter, deal is cheaper if you have the 10% one)

Lastly, I didn't want to try my luck losing the AMEX discount by using a cash back portal but that's also another potential savings vehicle

Oh thanks! I probably did not get since I just moved but will check my mail when I get back into town. If this applies to custom builds, I could almost stack all these offers and get the Rakuten offer they canceled last week. Assuming my gf has the Amex offer (my Amex doesn't).

Definitely a YMMY post, and a super valuable one at that. Thanks again for all these details/angles.

Do you know for a fact that the 15% off coupon works with the amex offer ? and would it work on pre builds ?

Amex stacks with everything, they only care what is posted on the CC

Would the cashback be valid since the 15% off coupon is not listed on their site?
