[Dell] XPS 13 - i7-8565U,512GB,16GB for $1800 - 10% ebate - 10% email - others*

Wondering if I may stack other promotions like the unicode you guys mentioned about.

I missed the razer stealth promo on Microsoft Store and this one seems not bad (I don't care about GPU)
I am able to get it down to 1539 + tax.

For those are students, go download the unidays app and get a code for youself. (they dont stack)
Who may explain ebate abit to me... this idea is new to me? see the kind-hearted person below.
Thanks so much

P.S. can someone please share a unicode or other applicable promotion code to me?

Hi,

I believe Dell disabled the Unicode stacking yesterday (If anyone could verify it would be appreciated).

For the ebates, I think there's currently still a 10% cash-back for Dell products.


For ebates, there's various guides out there but tl;dr: here's the steps I used (bear in mind there may be more efficient methods)
1.) Register on ebates (Canadian site)
2.) I strongly recommend to download their add-on for chrome (this will automatically prompt you for permission to activate the ebates).
3.) if you opt not to download the ebates add-on, you can click the respective vendor's redirect link (make sure you use this tab to order, so they can track your purchase).
4.) Once the purchase finalized, expect the ebates shortly after (delay depends on vendor, but from my experience with their competitor (Lenovo/Microsoft) , I received the ebates within 24hour)
5.) The ebates credit will be in your account, and they cash it out quarterly via physical cheque mail-outs, alternatively I think you can opt for Amazon Giftcards or Paypal (to be confirmed)?

Good luck

Does this model also has the noise fan issues?
Just bought an inspiron 13 and when connected to an external monitor the fan is very loud.
Is it hard to return in the 30 days period?

I'd like to warn anyone who wants to buy Dell XPS 13/15.
the massive problems of the swelling batteries in the XPS series have caused displacement of trackpads.
I'm the victim and Dell refused to take any responsibility of this issue which is definitely due to their poor design or battery of low quality.

No it's actually quite simple. I've returned laptops to them within 30 days on 2 occasions, and they have been extremely helpful on both.

I think the easiest way is to contact them via chat, and then select the Order Returns option on the drop down menu. After this you'll be linked to an employee, and you just request a return from them. They will offer you $50 to keep the laptop, but if you just say no, they proceed to process your return. And then you'll receive a return shipping label from Purolator within the next few hours (not sure why it takes so long)

Dam... ppl are definitely paying premium because they are XPS series.
Is it still safe to use?

I guess this gears towards people who likes portability and battery life.
If you are a gamer or content creator, there are better values in 15.6'' laptops equipped with discrete GPU.

Maybe the next big one is on Lenovo, but i have a feeling its gonna be a bust.

Just ordered this. Came up to 1255 (ontario tax) minus $130 ebates = 1125$ tax in
@moderator I have no idea how a massive sight like this allows people to ask for codes.
People are so lazy and this makes them more lazy. 90% of the people here know someone in UNI so it would take just a little effort to find a UNiDAYS code like I did.

Please stop asking people for codes and MODS please do something about it.
the double stack deal got shut down because people abused the deal.
btw PERKOPOLIS works with 10% off sign up email coupon.

Not worth it at $1800 (could get a much better brand new XPS 15 for less), but if you're able to purchase it for $1300 or less I'd buy it.

I didn't even know how unicodes are generated. I checked myself and I am eligible for it...
