But that's for the actual payout. If your ebates hasn't posted to your rakuten account then that's likely due to a bad shopping trip. I would start with this link https://www.rakuten.ca/help/contact/whe ... y-cashback and then wait and see what happens.
Off course we all have already started there and have been told to wait 45 days.
Already past 30+ days in my case. Dell's return period is also passed. I guess that's what Dell wanted ( due to multiple discounts) so that we now have no choice left.

Did it, and no response at all from Rakuten since last 8-9 days.

In this case, at least Dell may not give commission to Ebates.ca and, possibly keep an eye on Ebates.ca's business practice because, Dell will not like to spoil their brand reuptation because of Ebates.ca.

I'm not so sure. Based on the people earlier in the thread who said they never got their Dell ebates payouts due to ebates claiming too many discounts, my guess is that Dell would attempt to withhold the commission from ebates because they didn't expect to get hit with ebates + coupon codes + prepaid visas. Then ebates will try to deny the cashback. I think it's a bad idea for people to start mass emailing Dell this early.

Watched 6 episodes of the spy on Netflix. Let’s say 45 mins/ sip on average so roughly 4.5 hours with 16% battery left. All this on Power saver.

I've been waiting for about 3 weeks now for my ebates. Ordered my laptop on August 28th.

Already contacted ebates and same response," wait"

Finally got my cashback for both laptops. I ordered on Aug 16 and 17. Arrived first week of September. Started Rakuten enquiry last week and received both cashbacks today.

Still waiting for $100 prepaid cards though.

Lucky you and congrats!!

Curious, did you actually receive cashback amount by cheque/pp/amazon OR the cashback amount is currently reflected in your rakuten account?

I believe, any purchase made after Aug 15 2019 is scheduled to be paid by rakuten in Nov 2019. Isn't it?

I ordered aug 28.
shipped sep 4.
received sep 6
claimed cashback sep 9
claim validated sep 12
claim processed sep 16
The sep 16th email said "We hope that you are enjoying your new Dell PC. We are in the process of preparing your digital promotional Visa® prepaid card for delivery."

No more communication from them since then. Here's hoping.

my rakuten balance reflected the dell amount within days of ordering. it will be paid out nov 16th which is the regular schedule.
