We learned the hard way last year that the closer to Christmas we get, the more difficult it is for online stores to meet shipping dates. Fortunately, Dell’s online store has published a schedule detailing exactly when you should receive your orders if you are expecting the products by a certain date. This is a huge plus considering that Dell has been one of the best places to buy electronics deals this holiday season.
The most important date listed here is probably today. Today, December 15, is the last day you can order something from Dell.com, use standard shipping, and expect to receive it before Christmas. Starting tomorrow, you’ll need to switch to a faster delivery method, which means you’ll usually have to pay a bit more.
Here are some of the best Dell deals on the go, which include laptops, desktops, monitors, and other accessories.
Dell XPS Laptops & Desktops
This section contains all of the deals currently available on the XPS brand, whether it’s a laptop like the new XPS 13 or a pre-built gaming desktop like the XPS Special Edition. You can save hundreds on this single page, and the deals change regularly, so there’s always something new to discover.

Cutting-edge electronics: video doorbells, Android tablets and more
Dell sells more than computers and monitors. You can also find deals on other electronics like the Google Nest video doorbell, Arlo security cameras, or even Fitbit fitness trackers. This is the section just for that, and it includes sales that rotate regularly, so check back.

The deadline to order from Dell and receive your gift before Christmas is Tuesday, December 22. You’ll have to pay for express delivery, which often costs $ 25 or more, to get it before the big day. But at least you can still do some last minute shopping if you need to.
Avoid the extra shipping costs and order something today before 3:00 p.m. EST for the tech-savvy loved ones in your life.
Since we’re on the subject, Dell also has a very generous vacation return policy. All purchases made between now and December 25 are eligible for a full refund and free return as long as they are made by January 15 or within 30 days of product invoice. It’s a nice safety blanket in case something goes wrong.
