Dell promotes its products by offering discount coupons that can be redeemed at the Dell online store by entering the coupon code. For instance, if you want to buy a Dell Axim then all you need to do is to visit the Dell online store, select your product and enter the Dell Axim coupon code in the right field. The shopping program will automatically reduce the price of the Dell Axim by that amount. Depending on your luck, this can turn out to be a big saving.
The users need not redeem the Axim ns immediately. Instead, they have the option to store them in their online Dell Account until they are ready to redeem them. This is a great facility, and is made use of by users who receive these codes as part of Dell promotions or with their Dell Small Business e-mail updates.
The demand for Dell coupons is so high that a small online cottage industry has cropped up to meet the needs of coupon seekers. Several websites like BargainPDA.com and CouponMountain.com provide Dell coupon codes to members. These sites also encourage visitors to host Dell coupon codes that they may have received as part of routine Dell promotions but which they don’t want to use.
However, a danger with these coupon codes is that some of them may have expired without the user knowing about this. When the user, in good faith, puts up the code on the Dell.com website he is greeted by a message that the code does not work.
When this happens, the coupon code user suffers a double blow. First, the user does not get the benefit of the code that he has acquired with such great difficulty. Second, and even more disheartening, is the Dell reaction. The Dell shopping program withdraws the discount that is available on the direct purchase of the product.
The user is therefore advised to check the deals being offered by Dell before entering the code. It is quite possible that Dell may be offering a huge discount on the Axim product you want to buy. In this case it makes more sense to avail the discount and make a substantial saving then take the risk of entering a code that may have expired.
Dell has one more rule. According to this, a user can avail only one discount – either the discount being offered on the Del store or the discount that is hidden in the coupon code. These coupons are called non-stackable. Del, however, gives you the option to remove these coupons from you Check out field by clicking the Remove button.
