Great Stacking Deal on the New Bose QuietComfort 45 Noise Cancelling Headphones!

Written by Charlie

Stack some deals to get a great deal on the latest and greatest Bose headphones, the Bose QuietComfort 45 noise cancelling headphones.

I published an earlier post with great deals on noise cancelling headphones for Black Friday but here is a deal that is even greater for any people who like to stack for extreme savings!

Great Deal on Bose QuietComfort 45 Headphones

Step 1 – Save Amex Offers

See this post for all the info but, simply, there are three separate Amex Offers out there that can get you money back on purchases at Dell is where we are headed for this stacking deal.

If you can, save all of them to one card – preferably, save it to the American Express business Platinum card.

  • Spend $599, get $120 back
  • Get 10% back on purchases, up to $1,500
  • Spend $800, get $200 back

If you have the Amex Business Platinum card, you get $200 off purchases at Dell (if you have not used this already) so that makes it even better!

All of these offers are done on the American Express side of things so the next step works on the price you pay directly at Dell.

Step 2 – Rakuten for 15% Back

The next step is to head over to Rakuten where they are offering 15% back on purchases made at Dell. You can also choose to have that as 15X Amex points instead! If you are not yet a Rakuten member, sign-up here to earn free money (I get Amex points as well, thanks!)

Click here to start your shopping at Dell through Rakuten to activate the 15% back.

Step 3 – The Bose QuietComfort 45 on Sale

The Bose QuietComfort 45 headphones are already on sale for $279, down from $329, so that puts you already $50 ahead. I am not including a link here to the headphones on the Dell site because you have to go through Rakuten.

Search for them when you get to Dell.

Putting it Together

So, let’s put it together!

If you only get the Rakuten bonus, you will get $41.85 back from Rakuten. If you have it setup for Amex points, you will get 4,185 Amex points which most people would value around at least $60.

But, if you have the Amex Business Platinum, you could be paying just $79 if you haven’t used your $200 credit yet! If you have an Amex offer and can do more spending at, you could almost get these headphones for free!

At the very least, with the 10% offer, you will get $27.90 back from Amex. So, at the bare minimum, you will get $69 back, making the final cost on these headphones just $210, pre-tax. Best case? You are getting these for free!
