There is an awesome targeted Amex Offer out today that’s good for $200 back when you spend $800 or more at Dell.com. Some people are finding this offer on Business Platinum cards — even those already loaded with the offer for $120 back on $599 or more. I expect the offers should stack and also combine with the semi-annual $200 credit on that card (enrollment required) for an amazing deal.

Getting two hundred bucks back at Dell, particularly during Black Friday / Cyber Monday / holiday sales, is a great deal on its own.
Stacking it with the semi-annual $200 statement credit benefit on the Business Platinum card, which offers statement credits for up to $200 in Dell purchases from January to June and $200 from July to December, means that you could end up with $400 back on an $800 purchase. Stack that by first going through a shopping portal to get cash back from the portal based on the full $800 purchase price and you could be looking at a phenomenal deal (we often see rates over 10% back during the holiday shopping season, so that could be another $80 back!).
Even better, some people have gotten this offer on a card that already had an Amex Offer loaded for $120 back on $599 or more. That should stack, which means that a Business Platinum cardholder who still has the card benefit to use would end up getting $520 back on an $800 purchase plus cash back through a shopping portal (if you use one) based on $800 spend. I’m not sure whether folks who also have the Amex Offer for 10% back on up to $1500 in spend at Dell are finding this, but that would add yet another layer to the stack.
My wife already has the $120 back on $599 and 10% back offers loaded on her Business Platinum card. Unfortunately, she did not get this new $200 offer. If she did, I think we’d probably have to replace her laptop even though I’ve not been a fan of our past couple of Dell computers. If everything stacked, you would spend $800 and get back:
- $200 from this new Amex Offer
- $200 from the Business Platinum rebate
- $120 from the other Amex Offer
- $80 from the 10% back Amex Offer
- ~$80 from a shopping portal (based on 10%. Note that the current best portal rate is 9%, but we saw 16% last Cyber Monday, so this could get even better than this guess)
- Net cost = $120
Her laptop doesn’t need immediately replacement, but it is already four years old. Replacing a four-year-old (cheaper) laptop with a new ~$800 laptop for a net $120 would be enough of a deal to jump on it. I’ll note that the math there is perhaps misleading since we paid the annual fee on the Business Platinum card, so that $200 discount represents some amount of money out of our pockets. Still, this is pretty darn good. All of the above is to say nothing of points earned from the purchase. If purchased with a card that has the +4 referral deal loaded, that’s not an insignificant component since I’d expect 2,400 points.
If you have the offer, I recommend syncing it ASAP as the most popular Dell offers sometimes fill up and become unavailable.
