If you have an Amex Membership Rewards card, you can combine that with this portal offer to get 20% back on your purchases from Dell! Check out how to save with Dell!

If you are in the market for some new piece of tech or computing device and Dell is of interest to you (which I imagine it is since you clicked this post!), you can save big savings stack! All you need is an American Express Membership Rewards card to get started (you can still save without that but not as much).

Want Some New Travel Tech? This Stacking Deal Will Help You Save a Bundle!

What You Need:

  • A TopCashBack account (free to register – if you sign-up through my link, I will get $15 back)
  • An American Express Membership Rewards card (and the Dell offer that is available in the Amex Offers & Benefits section of your online account)
    • If you have the American Express Business Platinum card, you can activate your offer for that card to get $100 statement credit when shopping at Dell to make it even sweeter!

With those things at hand, here are the steps to follow to get some great savings.

Step 1: TopCashBack with 10% Cash Back Offer

Ending in a few days, TopCashBack is offering a 10% cash back offer for shopping at Dell. This is a nice place to start but it is also not the highest ever. Still, with the next step combined, this can be a good time to shop at Dell. The highest ever was 20% cashback and a couple of months ago, there was a 15% cash back offer.

Step 2: Pay with Your American Express Membership Rewards Card

This is the next and last step in this equation and one that won’t be for everyone (if you don’t have such a card). Before you pay with this card, make sure you login to your American Express account and go down to the Amex Offers to add this offer to the card you will use.

When you do that and pay, you will get 10% of the purchase price back (up to $1,500). Do pay attention to these restrictions:

  • Excludes international contact center, Global events, Dell Financial services, Dell Outlet for Home, Dell Outlet for Work, Dell PartnerDirect, Dell Premier, Dell Premier Connect, Dell Premier Select, and authorized retailers.

Also, while the offer says the shopping must be done at, there are many data points that a charge by Dell will trigger the offer (you should get an e-mail from American Express after successfully using the offer). It is also a sign that this would work since the offer is good for orders placed by phone.


Putting it altogether, you can get some significant savings with this deal! There are also deals on the Dell page for discounts that you can get on laptops, desktops, monitors and more. This is the back to school time to get those savings so definitely check them out!

If you have the American Express Business Platinum card and you have not yet used the $100 credit, you can get another $100 off that price! That is not that bad of a stack!

Of course, if you don’t have an American Express card that has this offer, your savings will be less (the $1,000 laptop would cost $765) so take a beat to see if it is something you really want now or if you want to wait for another deal down the road.

One more thing – if you want Bose headphones, you can get those with 10% cashback through TopCashBack and then the 10% back with American Express! That could help you get a significant deal!
