1. Get Rewarded
Save big when you sign up for the Dell Small Business loyalty program, Dell Advantage, which gives you 5% back on select purchases as well as free two-day shipping on every purchase. Members also receive exclusive pricing as well as early notices of upcoming sales.
Another option to save is to apply for the Dell Preferred Account credit program, which allows you to pay off a purchase in small monthly installments. In addition to exclusive financing terms, you will also receive discounts on future purchases. Unique deals such as no interest for 90 days on purchases from specific product categories such as laptops or tablets are also offered.
2. Cash in on AARP Perks
As an AARP member, you will be treated well at Dell Small Business. In addition to earning double reward points through the Dell Advantage program, you'll receive free ground shipping and discounts of up to 50% off. AARP members sometimes also receive exclusive pricing on certain products such as computer accessories.
3. Know When to Shop
The best Dell markdowns usually occur in late January or early February each year. Free shipping deals are also often offered at the end of each quarter in late March, June, September and December. Watch for steep discounts during Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. If you can't wait to make a purchase during any of these sales options, be sure to check out the new weekly cash-off or percentage-off promotions that are usually announced early on Thursdays.
4. Watch for Price Changes
Plan to take advantage of the Dell 24-hour price match guarantee by timing your purchase for a Wednesday. If the new promotions posted the next day reveal a discount on the product you purchased, contact Dell to request a price match refund for the difference.
