Contact Dell customer service to indicate you're not happy with the long build time (possibly ask to cancel). They'll often come back with a discount counter. It's usually possible to get another 3-6% discount.
I thought the goodwill discount sometimes would negate the Rakuten cashback? Would anyone confirm?

Good question. I don’t have the answer to that one. In my case, I’m waiting for Dell to see if I will get US Rakuten and the goodwill discount. If not, I’ll be cancelling.

But those that have Rakuten should be cautious about getting the goodwill discount. Would be good to hear from those that have experience.

I bought a monitor in February from Dell and received Rakuten, Unidays and a goodwill discount. I've never had problems with Rakuten and Dell though, so maybe I've just been lucky.

who_ca wrote: Update for those waiting on US Rakuten 15% cashback: I sent Dell Customer Service a request to cancel my laptop order (I don't really *need* the laptop as I'm gaming largely with my Xbox Series X, and I just ordered a Quest 2 and don't need the PC link just yet).

Dell offered me a $130 discount if I was willing to keep the order instead of canceling it.

I responded to Dell that I'd keep the laptop if I can get the $130 discount and that they can work with Rakuten to honour my 15% cashback (noting that Rakuten is following-up with them/Dell). The CSR has forwarded the details of my Rakuten cashback to "an internal team" to investigate.

So now I have Dell and US Rakuten working on this :-D. Would be a hot deal if I end up getting the 3060 (with 512GB ssd) with these discounts:

1) Dell sign-up 10% discount (-$195.00 already applied to my order)
2) -$130 Dell goodwill discount
3) 15% US Rakuten cashback (around -$263.00)

Of course, with all the scrutiny my order will have, there is a good chance the US Rakuten will be rejected. But this should get sorted in time for me to return the laptop if necessary.

Yes, it would have been easier just to cancel and re-order with the 10% Rakuten Canada cash back... but if there's a chance for a better deal: I had to give it a shot :-)
What did it come to with all those deals?

Legion Y740 17" with RTX 2080 ($1,669.99) or
Legion Y740 17" with RTX 2070 ($1,409.99)

See this thread: lenovo-canada-lenovo-y740-17-gaming-lap ... 9-2463475/

You might be able to take advantage of Rakuten 15% cashback on Lenovo today. This may work if you use the Rakuten browser add-on (Firefox/Chrome). It's a little trickier as the deal above is a Perkopolis one, but using the add-on might work (YMMV).

These are slightly older Intel CPUs, but still decent, 17" 144Hz 300 nit screens, Thunderbolt, bigger SSDs, and NVIDIA® GeForce® RTX™ 2080 (or 2070) with Max-Q 8GB.
Thanks for sharing, i saw that thread before but these are with 2 generation old cpu, i wouldn't pay that much for such old cpu. Also i prefer to get AMD.

I am not in hurry and will wait for newer version

You!!! The sign up works... but your link gives the discount for "Business Dell" notice the "s=bsd" in the link.... I just gave it a shot and changed that to just "s=d" and it worked for me getting a Non-Business Dell 10% code.

*edit* dang.... Rakuten is back to 2%.... BOOOOOO!

Just to be clear, I don't have confirmation of the full deal yet. Dell & Rakuten are supposedly investigating my US cash back still.

My initial price was:
$1949.99 for the 3060 with upgraded SSD to 512GB
-$195.00 for the 10% sign-up discount
$228.15 for HST (in ON)
Total: $1983.14

Dell then offered the $130 goodwill discount. And I'm awaiting information on the 15% cashback from US Rakuten.

The 15% cashback is the big question mark.

The goodwill discount is going to void your rakuten cash back.

That's the big question. I haven't accepted the goodwill discount yet (Dell offered after I asked to cancel) and I'm awaiting Dell and Rakuten's assessment. I told them I'd keep the machine if I can get the $130 goodwill discount and they honour my 15% Rakuten cash back.

Sounds like there have been cases of successfully stacking both the goodwill and Rakuten (but also cases where the goodwill has voided cashback, so anyone trying to play with both: this is a big YMMV).

I just happen to have both Dell & Rakuten working on getting me answers. I'm also fine simply cancelling/returning the laptop so there is little to risk for me. If I get a great deal, I'll keep it. If not, I'll cancel/return.

To add to the complexity of my possible hot deal, I just got an email indicating I've earned $52.65 in Dell Rewards (pending for 30-35 days until my laptop order is actually invoiced).

Well best of luck, my rakuten deposit of $315 us was in my account the next day but says it won't be paid till August. Rakuten is kinda a joke nowadays with forcing people to constantly argue that they deserve it. They are basically trying to ripp people off, not that I have to personally complain about. Have you considered that even if they give you the cashback and the goodwill discount they could just reverse it after your 30 day dell return period expires? I mean technically we weren't supposed to get anything really as it was supposed to be for the US site.
