^ not the best dGPU but trade-off is a nice CPU. Might work well enough as small footprint desktop replacement (using wireless KB/Mouse and large high-res monitor) and as a portable PC.

I've recently purchased a G5 desktop from dell with 8% Rakuten, the cash back showed up but disappeared in 3 weeks. Upon contacting Rakuten, they said they'll need to engage Dell and it'll take 45 days.

I've never had any issues with them over the years but this is the most recent experience. I've made a same purchase a month ago with 2% rebate without issue. Both purchase had unidays discount applied. While the purchase still made sense in my case without the $108 rebate, I'd recommend anyone that uses Rakuten budget the purchase without the rebate in the first place, as that could change your decision. Most of the time, it's fine, but it's definitely not a "guaranteed discount".

S2721DG their flagship gaming monitor has constantly been on sale for $529.99. Now its $549.99 lol. Seems like Dell has a floor price for everything, which includes rakuten/unidays baked in. There is never a true sale at Dell.

Their MSRP is $750
Their biweekly sale price is $529.99
Their Floor price with cashback/Unidays is $470.

Their pricing strategy is hoping for uninformed to buy the $750, and make people think they getting a great deal at $530, but the real price should be in $450 range comparing to other brands.

I'm having the same issue with Dell and Rakuten. I purchased a system on April 15 during a 10% event. Cashback was in my account then disappeared and I'm still waiting for dell to move my item to production. I would advise anyone against ordering from dell and expecting to receive your cashback. Also, shipping times are beyond atrocious.

I've had the same thing happen my last 2 orders. I received the cash back only to have it disappear once the computer shipped. When I emailed rakuten they stated that Dell disqualified a portion of the purchase.

This is what they stated in their email:
Typically, a merchant will disqualify a purchase or a portion of a purchase for Cash Back if there are non-Rakuten coupons used, price matching, returns, exchanges, or cancellations on any part of the order.

I agree. If someone is buying just because of the cashback they may be disappointed if they don't receive it. Shipping times have also gone downhill. On the business side, ship dates are a month out. In some cases well into July.

The issue with shipping time is probably due to on-going chip shortage.
