A new targeted Amex Offer came out earlier this week good for $40 back on $200 or more at Dell (enrollment required). Unfortunately, I didn’t find this offer on any of our Buisness Platinum cards nor on cards that have been targeted with the offer for $120 back on $599 or more. However, I did find this on some other Amex cards in our household that were not targeted for the $120 back on $599 offer, so if you didn’t get that offer you may want to check for this one.

This offer doesn’t seem particularly useful for those shopping for a new computer since most of the computers sold by Dell cost a bit more. However, this deal could be useful under a couple of circumstances:
- You want something else that Dell sells. They do sell a pretty wide variety of stuff.
- You mostly want Xbox Gift Cards because those can be useful. Note that some people get Xbox gift card orders cancelled without explanation or notification.
- You want to split tender with other cards that receive credits at Dell. Dell allows you to split payment over up to 3 payment methods when you check out online.
To that last point, if you have this on (for example) an Amex Gold card and you also have a Business Platinum card, you could put $200 of your charge on the Business Platinum card (to receive that card’s twice-annual $200 rebate for Dell purchases, valid once from January to June and once from July to December) and then put $200 of the charge on your Amex Gold card to trigger this offer (either charging the balance to one of those two cards or putting it on a third card with another offer). That could work out to be useful depending on how much you’re spending and how many other cards you have.
Overall, I don’t find this offer as appealing as some others they have recently had, but it can work out OK in the right situation.
