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.
