For WiFi cards, best to stick with Intel.
AX200 on Amazon is $26.99 after $3 coupon (no tax) - https://www.amazon.ca/MQUPIN-Wireless-A ... B07S5Z2V6K
Also 9260AC is $25.99 after $2 coupon - https://www.amazon.ca/MQUPIN-Wireless-A ... B07R64MSJK
It looks like AX200 is a winner here. Will buy this one. Now, I will also need to upgrade my routers at home.

Forgot to ask you, how hard/easy was it to remove the old wifi card and Install the new one?

Pretty easy. Just undo screws at bottom, use some gentle force to remove back cover, unhook battery and then replace Wifi card.

Bought an AX200 card from AliExpress. Works well
Would upgrading the card when I am on 75mbps (realistically get 15-25mbs) be any use? I only use wifi at my place.
Also have not received my gift card yet and it was processed on Sept 16th. Gave them Berks a call, they just kept apologizing and we got no where.

Based on your current internet speed, no need to upgrade at this time

This is my timeline
1) August 30, 2019 - Ordered the laptop
2) September 11, 2019 - Dell Received and Validated the Claim for the $100 Visa Cashback (Should Receive it within 28 days)
3) September 16, 2019 - Claim Payment Processed

Has anyone got their card yet? It is now officially 21 days with only 7 days remaining.
So it's now been 44 days since claim has been validated but still no email. I called Dell at 1-888-672-6041 and she told me I should have received it on September 16 which I think she was referring to the email I got saying Claim Payment Processed. She gave me phone number for Berkley I think which was 1-855-310-3383. Called and rep asked for my name and just said ya there is a delay but you should receive it by 7 days. When I asked for the card ID dell rep gave me or my email the Berkley rep could not answer. I had a feeling the Berkley rep was making stuff up. Not sure if I should wait or call my credit card. How long can one call the credit card for false charge.

Received my Visa card today from berkeley@myvirtualprepaidcard.com

Subject line: Your Virtual Prepaid card is ready

It was in my junk mail, and I submitted my initial claim on September 11th. Validated on 13th, processed on 16th.

I did no follow-up whatsoever.

Ya, got mine today too (from laptop order on Aug. 28th). Immediately used it to top up my gift card balance on Amazon so that I don't have to worry about using this before it expires.
