You could try. The way to tell if your order goes through properly is if you get two emails. One is an acknowledgement email, the other is a confirmation with order number. If you get that second order, your order is fine.
One of the surge protectors I bought today I used PayPal and it went through fine, while a targus bag I tried to use PayPal with didn't, so I ended up using CC for that.

So, after talking to Dell and Paypal via phone and email, it seems Dell is having issues with Paypal and a lot are getting declined on their end for no reason - Paypal confirms it is fine and Dell's system is just not accepting the $$$. Below is what the Dell rep sent me to confirm his system is declining it. Paypal just shows as pending for me (due to them not accepting the money). Glad it is a small purchase. I'd be pissed not getting the paypal cashback on a big purchase.

At least you can still get 4% cashback by going through RedFlagDeals green cashback links. I mean 9% would obviously be better, but it's better than nothing if you are forced to use CC.

The supervisor I spoke to said it was due to cashback promotions. I tried to use Ebates and Paypal for 9% total. Did you use the RFD cashback and try paypal too?

They are apparently declining CC too and forcing reorders/providing of new info so the cashback won't apply. When you go to correct it ask them if the cashback still applies - or just check your next statement. You won't get it!

Tried CC through PayPal... No luck.

Just ordered with no cashback directly with CC and it worked. It was for a friend and he needs a laptop asap. Hope it ships quickly at least.

I'm not quite sure who takes the hit for the cashback, but I wonder if RFD is aware that Dell is screwing visitors who try to utilize their cashback links.

Ordered surge protector via RFD cashback link and paypal. Got "acknowledged" and "confirmed" emails from Dell. I suppose it went through then.
Now I'm wondering if I actually need it: ordered largely just to test the reported problem with payment.

Good to hear it is working for you. Both myself and a family member used cashback + Paypal with 5% and had "decline" issues. I wonder what the real issue is if some people are able to do it.
