For those who have used ebates for Dell in the past how long did you have to wait to get the ebate? I ordered on Aug 28th but still haven't received anything. Ebates say they are waiting to hear back from Dell and that it can take up to 45 days.

Quote " GPU Performance
The Ryzen 7 3700U comes with the same integrated RX Vega 10 GPU as on the last generation Ryzen 7 2700U. Even so, 3DMark results are higher than expected with numbers that rival even the 10 W GeForce MX150 as found on the Asus VivoBook FX433. Scores are about 18 to 47 percent faster than the average RX Vega 10 in our database. If you want the best of what the RX Vega 10 has to offer, then this particular Dell configuration has the fastest implementation thus far.

Undemanding titles like DOTA 2, Fortnite, and Rocket League will run well at native 1080p on very low settings for sharp visuals even without all the post processing. Idling on Witcher 3 shows small but consistent frame dips over time to suggest that performance could be smoother."

A week. I contact customer support if it doesn't show up after, just give them screenshots of your order confirmation email of the order and they should manually credit it to you.

15 mins after I placed my order. I was surprised how fast that was.

I am in the similar situation. If I wait 45 days, I would not be able to return.

I had that situation for when I clicked on eBates and then completed the purchase the next morning (browser still open). Another Dell purchase made a couple weeks later the cashback confirmation was sent very shortly after the order shipped. Of course both times making sure uBlock and no-script were not active for the entire process.
Going to follow up on the 45th+ day if it doesn't come through, but I'm not worried about it.

Same here. Is ebates just a scam? That was a factor why I bought the laptop and they didn't deliver their part of the deal.

eBates/Rakuten is definitely not a scam but it's a site that you have to dedicate some time to monitoring. Sometimes they will have a one day bonus cash back of x% but when you do a purchase you get a different amount, so you'll have to contact support and get it updated. Both previous cycles for cash back redemption the date came and went and I did not get my Amazon gift card, so I emailed them and had it within an hour.

In one recent case, they had a one day sale for Chef's Plate that gave $22.50 back for your first order. I forgot about it but we ended up ordering the next day when it said $7.50 cash back instead. After 5 days of no cash back, I emailed them and got a response that they had credited my account, but they actually gave me the $22.50 that I should not have received, so I got 3 dinners for $7. Your mileage may vary!

I've earned over $100 in cash back over the past 3 months from ebates and they paid without issue

All the links redirect to the US site....are the prices in USD or CAD?

Also did Dell just drop Synology from their offerings? They don't seem to carry any of their products anymore and I just checked a couple weeks ago...
