Same deal as they've been doing with a lot of new releases lately. Add the game to cart and the promo $25 giftcard will show up (probably a good idea to take a screen shot of it, since it won't show up on your order confirmation and some poeple had issues with these deals in the past).

 

eGiftCards are emailed to you 10-20 days after the game ships and I believe they're good for 90 days only.

Yeah, I've bought a few games through them.  It works out pretty well, but they ship in padded envelopes, I had the corner of a Wind Waker crushed in the process.  Definitely hang on to screen shots of anything that mentions the gift card (the product page doesn't mention it).  I had to go through a bit of a mess to get one for GTA V that was actually part of the detail page (and listed in the title of the game on the invoice).  They fixed it, but it took a bit of time on the phone.  I was helped by the fact that the title of the game was something like "Grand Theft Auto V - with free $20 eGift Card".

Those with experience at Dell.com, two questions:

1. What do shipping costs run?  I'm not seeing anything on their site

2. How long does shipping take?  Is it more like 2-3 days, or more like 1-2 weeks?

Seems good and then I can use that to get a pro controller for a price I want

Hmm...if I shopped at Dell then I'd be on this. But I really don't want to be forced into buying more items from them. I'll stick with GCU instead; I'm not getting as much, but I'd rather get $12 off. Just my opinion. Thanks for posting OP.

it has free next day shipping? I'm skeptical even though it says the price

I'm also thinking about using the $25 GC towards a Pro controller. Free shipping definitely makes it tempting.

They offered free next day shipping for me on my WatchDog preorder so I didn't find that too surprising. Also, if you sign up for Dell Advantage (their loyaltee program, free to sign up) you get 2nd business day shipping on ALL orders (in addition to 10% back for future orders). 

 

Personally, I'm hoping that they do the same promo for Destiny preorder. That comes out Sept 9. If I get 90 days from 10-20 days after this ships (May 30) it should still be good... barely. I applied the $25 from TitanFall so hopefully I can keep this train going.

What's the catch for joining Dell Advantage?

As far as I'm aware, none. It's just a loyalty program like BestBuy's MyBestBuy or Kmart/Sear's SYWR. 

 

And my mistake, its' 5% back, not 10%. To get 10%, you also need to be part of the Dell Preferred (financing program, I assume would do a hard pull on your credit). I'm not a member of Dell Preferred.  

 

Here's the FAQ on Dell Advantage:

Well, darn, I wish I had known about that when I ordered a ~$275 TV (with $200 GC) two weeks ago--I wouldn't have minded another $13.75 back. :headache:

Had no clue about the gas cash promo, didn't think they had a promo period. Thanks for the heads up!

Thanks for the thread, op! I pre-ordered my copy and will more than likely use the gift card for smash brothers later this year.

Heh, I remember getting Mario Galaxy 2 not too long after it launched from Dell for like $30 or so.  


well i asked whether you stood behind your opinions and you said "Always" so i offered up the same bet that i gave to Fire Thief. You think the price of the xbox one will drop to $300 + 2 games by end of year? Let's put a bet on it.

Does anyone know how long this will last, or will it last until launch?  Not sure if I'll have the money by the time MK8 launches as I'll be buying a vita with my remaining funds and am still waiting on some potential birthday funds from a relative or two.

This deal is on Slickdeals, so I don't see it lasting longer than another day, but we can always hope.

Use it towards Smash Bros if you have a 3DS?

Thanks OP! I had yet to preorder this, I was hoping something better than the BB gas cash would come up. 

 

Dell has Kirby 3DS for $30 right now. If they still have it when I get the $25 egc, that's probably what I'll use it on.

Woop forgot about that. Now let's just hope Dell gets enough copies as I'm sure ppl w/ those $25 gift cards are going to be blowing their load on Smash Bros 3DS for sure. 

 

Welp Dell got me! I bit on this pre-order. They better deliver come time I have that $25 gift card to blow.
