Dell to Drop Mail-in Rebates and Make Pricing More Clear

by Reads (6,311)

Dell has announced that it will be ending mail-in rebates on PCs they sell and making pricing more transparent in order to be more consumer friendly.  According to Dell, the number of promotions for any single product will be cut by 80%. 

Does this mean the end of the popular Dell coupons?  Dell did not elaborate exactly whether coupon codes would be cut or not, but it’s a distinct possibility.  Ro Parra, senior vice president of Dell’s Home and Small Business Group commented that “On any given quarter, we have had 30, 40, 50 promotions on any given product, so it really became very confusing and difficult for our customers to understand and shop.”  Parra further went on to state that Dell was not cutting or raising prices, but rather streamlining the way customers buy by presenting the best price immediately.


Will these promotions you see on the configuration page for the e1505 dissapear soon? (view large image)

Dell did clearly state that mail-in rebates would be eliminated entirely within 18 months.  This follows suit with other retailers such as Office Max and Best Buy who have both said they will be abandoning mail-in rebates.  Mail in rebate reductions will begin next month on Inspiron laptops and Dimension desktops will see a reduction later in the year.  Moves on promotion strategies and changes will come gradually instead of all at once because of the scope of the undertaking.

Dell will not end all of its promotion efforts because that’s often how a company can drive sales.  As for coupon codes, if you’re afraid they will be gone soon with these new changes and want to use them while you can, we’ll list the latest ones below!
