Super Smash Bros. (Wii U) Pre-order + $25 Dell eGift Card $60 + Free Shipping

 

http://accessories.u...d472f461b40c319

 

I stole this from SlickDeals

 

Gift cert will show in cart.

 

Note that Dell will likely take a FULL 20 days from shipment to send you the gift cert, so don't do this if you are impatient.  I have gotten several gift certs from Dell and they have all been sent reliably, although slow.  Also note that the gift cert usually expires within 90 days or so.

Stay the hell away from Dell. I did the 25 buck gift cards with any  game purchase back in aug. Was going to cash them in tonight. Was told by a dell worker those 25 buck cards are  25 bucks off any purchase 500 or more. They are not real gift cards.

I'm not sure why they told you that.  I just used a $25 reward card from my PS4 charger order from a couple months ago to buy a $25 Xbox Live gift card.

 

Yep, that's right. $25 Xbox Live gift cards are back up on dell.com.  Tax is a bummer for this item, but there's free shipping.

starting to think it was a scam.  Just a heads up for those who  Got in on the any video game  get 25 back. Those codes expire next week

 

going though 2nd chat now and seem they are working.

 

had  4  and  going to buy 2 years of psn+  nothing else to buy (was hoping they would of put the pokemon games up but NOPE)

I got in on the last $25 gift card promotion (CoD, Dragon Age, AC Unity), and I don't believe the gift card that I used got charged until a game shipped.

 

I received CoD:AW today - 2 days after release date.

 

I'm generally busy and can live with a 2 day delivery delay to save money on this, so probably in for one. Thanks, OP.

if you use  2 gift cards  you have to either call them to go though chat. I think if it ever happens again i will give call i try, it took a freaking hour to get 2 orders placed.  Picked up 2  Psn years for 7 bucks.

 

So figured  (they sent double the cards and was told to keep them) 

Got mario golf and  Kirby triple for 64 (after tax)  Kirby got backordered and they took 10 off the bill  (so 54 total paid for the  2 games) then toss the 7 on.

 

then i sold off kirby to gamestop for 30  :) 

 

So around 30 out of pocket i got  Mario golf for the 3ds and 2 years of psn+

yeah I preordered this on the phone, using 2 gift cards earlier. took like ten minutes, she signed me up for dell advantage which results in 2 day shipping. never had an issue with dell. they tend to send out early so I'm pretty confident I'll have this either release day or day after with 2 day on there.

In for one, thanks OP.

 

Did this with MK8 and everything went smoothly. They actually shipped the game early and I received it on release day, so I expect Smash Bros will come within a similar time frame.

Hmm, that's weird. I got a $25 Dell gift card for preordering Shadow of Mordor and used it for Halo Collection that netted me another $25 gift card. Yes, it took a full 15 days after ship to get the card so keep that in mind. Strangely though, I've already received the card for Halo Collection and it hasn't even shipped yet.

One thing I've learned from lurking around here is that it's always safe to ignore anything and everything that slidecage says. Your brain cells will thank you for it, too.

Tried using my last 2 on a 3rd psn card and  had  2 worker all are saying that code is tied to spend 500 bucks get 25 off. So i Dont know if something is wrong with their systems or what.  then a 3rd worker said when they entered those codes it tossed a 489 TV into the cart with 200 buck gift card coming back.  AT least i got 12 more days to dump these last 2

After all this time, I finally realize why everyone here dismisses or ignores your statements reflexively.

 

I'm no fan of Dell computers, and their online store and customer service is lacking (to say the least), but they have always come through with the $25 gift cards, which are good on any purchase. They are emailed up to 20 days after shipping, so be patient. I've made several good buys using Dell.com, including MarioKart 7 for which I paid something like $5 after the coupon.

I was thinking about getting this but I don't think I can wait for it to come in the mail. I'll probably go to Best Buy since I wanted the bundle with the controller, plus I have GCU so it'll shave off around $20 anyway.

I had 7 of these mid-August and have only used 1 so far. Dell's game selection sucks and their other electronics are overpriced. 

 

I gotta find something before next week before these all expire, and would love to use multiples on one order but Dell makes that pretty difficult as you have to call and they're only open on weekdays.

The above chat took 16 minutes by your own admission. Perhaps longer to get it all sorted out.

Inconvenient? Sure.

Dealbreaker? Nah.

Yeah, the confirmation email never seems to mention it, but it was there all through checkout. Don't worry, you will get the gc.

So which is it? Were you told by a Dell CSR it was only good on purchases of $500 or more, or are you merely cautioning us to check our carts (as if we wouldn't anyway)?

if you go though chat there is no way to check your cart. The CSR worker asks for the 2 gift cards and then pops up a screen where you put your credit card in. You dont check though you cart like normal.
