You Can Price Match With Dell & Use A Portal
When trying to maximize the $100 semi annual Dell credit on the American Express business platinum card one issue people have been running into is the inability to price match to a competitor and go through a shopping portal. This is because when doing a price match you usually need to complete the order via phone (even if the price match is originally done via chat).
Reader elegua was able to do both a price match and use a portal and the key seems to be asking the representative price matching to send you a quote. After doing this they will send you an e-mail and included in that e-mail will be a link ‘Quote to order’ with your items price matched. You can then go through a portal and complete your order (basically you open the portal as normal and then click the quote to order button). It’s not clear if all representatives have the ability to use this e-mail quote or not, but it could make the $100 semi annual benefit a lot more valuable if it’s an easy process.
Update: Quote to order orders are usually excluded from earning on most portals, I suspect they will work anyway but YMMV.
