laurenbrush said: When Dell offers eGift Cards are they only redeemable for Dell products/services? Or is it like a gift card rebate like retailers like h.h. gregg give? Only valid at Dell, and typically only valid for a short period of time (90 days?).
So the deal at Dell is $372.35 with sales tax, free shipping (7 business day) and no interest for 12 months. The deal at Amazon is $329.00 with free 2-day shipping via Prime with no sales tax and no special financing.
Is a $125 Dell eGift card worth $43.35? There are similar ones that have sold on eBay recently for between $85 and $115.
I've never had a Dell eGift card...are they transferrable? are they tied to my DPA account with Dell? Can anyone use it?
rockymast said: Dell gift card is just a gimmick. Makes the price look even better. That's it! If a 'gimmick' is something that can be used for the same as cash at Dell, or sold for ~75-90% of it's face value, then sure... gimmick. <snort!> The promo GC do expire in 90 days, so if you're not going to use it, make sure and sell it promptly. sauceyapple said: I bought a TV from Dell back in May and sold the gift card on eBay with no problem.
You can also save some money by buying a gift card from eBay and apply it to this purchase (You can only apply one promotional gift card per order). You can use up to three forms of payment when ordering via chat (or phone?), and no limit 1 promo GC. Though the limit 3 payment usually means you can only use 2 promo GC and some 3rd form of payment to round off the total.
Just some simple ideas here, find 2 - $125 Gift card on eBay ($250) For about $200 , Then resell your card for ~$100 to lower your net cost to ~$200 for the TV, which is a great price.
I used to call Sharper Image corporate to buy big discount blocks of gift cards through my company as gifts (deduction) & I one time purchased a set of ZZZ (ZZZ was their refurbished code for the cheapest price) massage chairs versus buying new. My final net price on 4 Massage chairs was $2,800 & I used them for ~ 3 years & sold them for a total of $3,400. Be creative when you look at the angles & see if deals work backwards.
I know it is a long shot but my sons third grade teacher is looking for a computer for the classroom. If anyone out there is not going to use the Dell gift cards, could they private message me? I am willing to donate some funds towards the computer but can not afford to buy the entire package by myself.
