On Google Chrome it does but it opens on Firefox. The deal is no longer available though.

Your ad blocker might be closing the tab. I had this issue before and Ublock was the culprit.

You can change that option before you add to the cart. Just have to select the 1 Year option.

Watch out for the $10.00 a month tech support fee that is automatically added. You have to choose the 1 Year Hardware Service to avoid that.
Don't forget that the power supply is also another non-standard; even the video cards are sometimes OEM-specific to Dell (in the worst, cost-cutting ways). As a sealed box of warranty-covered parts these XPS systems aren't bad. However, as a bucket of parts the XPS systems have devolved into some of the worst deals out there. Thankfully Dell's Alienware systems remain composed of more modular components (albeit, often still collected together in ways which negatively impact their performance potential).

Unfortunately, many of the issues cited in this Gamers Nexus review [youtube.com]remain applicable for modern XPS systems today.

Good luck!
Jon

For a productivity and work machine, I'd rather have the 1660 super version for $650. I feel like the 3060 is in an awkward zone where it's not quite up to high gaming standards and it's probably overkill for most work related scenarios aside from big 4K video editing and rendering.

Quote from FuschiaScene411 :
Pretty hilarious deal. The case, CPU Cooler, and Mobo are junk. So, you've got a $330 GPU and $670 of other stuff, most of which are mediocre to downright terrible.

I guess look online and see if you can sell the GPU-less setup for $600. At least you'll have a decent GPU, although personally I think if you're gaming you should aim for at least a 3060 Ti.

Even if you do productivity stuff, the thermals are so bad on this device that even that is questionable.

I know people who just want the 3060, even with this base level config. But I don't think this is a mining card. You might have to check other forums for how well this does and whether it is driver-disabled for that. It's the lowest level of the 3060 cards.

Does it come with paid extended warranties that you don't want but they charge you anyways?
