If you have Dell credits to use, today may be a good day to knock out a planned purchase given that shopping portal Rakuten is offering 15% cash back or 15x Membership Rewards points per dollar spent in many categories. Note though that rate is 8% back / 8x Membership Rewards points on desktops and laptops (though that’s still an increased rate that’s pretty good).
- Earn increased rates when shopping at Dell after clicking through from the following portals:
- 15% cashback /15x Membership Rewards – Rakuten
- Expiration unknown
- Note that the increased rate only applies in some categories
A payout like this can be worthwhile if you’re planning to make a purchase, though note that Dell has been cancelling orders on those who make too many separate orders within a six-month period. It seems best now to place one order even if you need to split tender over multiple credit cards.
Of key importance here is recognizing that the increased payout is not available site-wide. It works in most categories, but most notably the payout is actually 8% / 8x in laptops and desktops.
I hate that Dell sometimes splits categories apart and sometimes offers a cash back rate side-wide. It means that you always need to check the details / exclusions. That said, these payouts are quite good even in the laptop / desktop categories. If you’ve been thinking about making a Dell purchase, this could be a good day to do it.
