Update 1/21/23: Check emails if you signed up for an account as they are offering another $10 Dell credit for answering a three question survey.
Update 12/27/22: Deal is still available at the new link shown below.
I’m bumping this post from this morning since I just did it myself and it was totally painless. It only took a minute and the $25 is already showing in my Dell Rewards balance. (Be sure to use same email with Alienware as your Dell account.) I’ve also updated the list below with more sub-$25 items. Personally I’ll just combine this with my $200 Dell purchase on Business Platinum in January when my credit resets.
Direct Link to offer | New link
- Join Alienware Arena and get free $25 Dell Rewards credit.
The Dell Rewards will expire 3/31/23. Tack along on a purchase with the Dell credit from Amex business Platinum to get $25 more.
Or use this on sub-$25 items on Dell for an easy freebie. You have until March 31st to use the Dell Rewards so you can come back in a month or two if the cheaper items are out of stock (affiliate links below):
Hat tip to Dansdeals
Any suggestions please on what to buy with $35? thanks
The one that I like is Kensington SP25 15.6-inch Laptop Backpack but it is $40 and I am too cheap to spend $5 bucks on it.
Not that familiar with dell.com, are there typically any coupons on that? thanks
Cables, adapters, smart light bulb
I really hate Dell. Wasted an hour plus looking at what to buy. Finally saw H&R Block deluxe that I really needed and it was for the perfect price of $34.99 (1 cent less than the $35 rewards). Tried placing order twice but it keeps getting canceled. I havent bought anything from them in years so no clue what is going on here. Wondering if my account is flagged or something else?
I would think it’s probably because you’re only paying with reward money on an account not used in years. Just a guess and may be giving Dell too much credit to distinguish that.
Frey thanks. Dell is super weird, just tried calling them and after 4 transfers they sent me to their verification department. After 45 minutes on hold, I hung up and called again and asked these freaks if that dept is even open and they said no, fml
I was finally able to get the text verification on 1/10 and surprised to see a $25 reward in the Alienware Arena account.
Then I enabled Dell Reward in my Dell account that has been around for a long time. (didn’t know it wasn’t automatic)
But the reward never showed up in the Dell account. So I contacted Alienware Support and they told me “unfortunately your account was created after the promotion ended”… Oh well. Anyway I acted too late so it was my fault but it was just free money that has a number of restrictions… so fine.
Anyone else able to purchase Xbox GC’s from Dell right now? When I click ‘add to cart’ it takes me to my cart, but without having actually adding the GC. Spoke w/ a rep who asked for page links to the GC’s and said she’d attempt to make a “quote” to send me via email that I could use to complete the purchase instead. After a few minutes she said the page links are showing as invalid when she attempts to submit the ‘quote’ request. She said because the links themselves still work as she could see, that she’ll escalate this issue to see whats up. Typical Dell nonsense.
Went through similar “alternate” order placement direct with agent while on phone, only to have it cancelled later. This was two yrs ago. I think the phone sales people aren’t told anything regarding this, hence we get a wide spectrum of answers and attempts.

Same, what a scam!
Spoke too soon. Points posted the next day
Oh my God, I didn’t know so many of you had birthdays in Jan 🙂
Just like that for gender, we live in a society in which we can self-identify our birthdays 🥳
On Dell, trying to check out:
“Due to a technical issue, we can’t retrieve your Rewards information. If you would like to apply Rewards to this purchase, please keep this window open and call 1-877-907-3355 for assistance.”
Anybody else seeing this?
Dave S. what are you trying to buy?
500 are gone. I just got the 25 ARP instead of $10 credit.
Birthday down to 25 ARP as of now
Pizza what is this ARP and can this be converted to Dell Rewards? thanks
Just got the $10 birthday gift. But the link for the $10 Microsoft gift card that I bought on the first round is dead.
And the smart light bulb went from $15 to $21. They’re onto us, folks…
This is the lowest denomination. There’s even a “Save 10% with coupon: GAME10”

Was stuck on the mobile number verification step when the promo was on. Was able to receive the code and verify number. Instantly got the dell credits.
