Buy now or wait 6 months for Desktop Dell XPS computer?
« on: December 31, 2021, 01:20:58 PM »
I bought a 2nd house and need to purchase a desktop for the home which won't be used until May/June.  I have 2 Amex Offer Promos of $120 back from $599 Purchase which amounts to $240 in savings which expire today.  The computer is $1216 after tax -$240 ($120 x 2) = $976. 

XPS MT 8940
11th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-11700 processor(8-Core, 16M Cache, 2.5GHz to 4.9GHz)
Windows 11 Home, English
NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1650 SUPER™ 4GB GDDR6
CD ROM/DVD ROM
Tray load DVD Drive (Reads and Writes to DVD/CD)
500W Night Sky Bezel Chassis including optical drive
16GB, 2x8GB, DDR4, 2933Mhz
1TB M.2 PCIe NVMe Solid State Drive
Killer™ Wi-Fi 6 AX1650i (2x2) 802.11ax Wireless and Bluetooth 5.1

What should I do?  Wait or pull the trigger?

A comp machine with newer processor is priced about $300 more after tax with XPS 8950.

Will the offer credits kick in if the computer isn't shipped (and thereby, card charged)? until next week?

Based on when I press the button on the computer, not when it ships.
