“Our focus for this year’s holiday season is simple: provide technology at a great value while focusing on customer convenience,” said Michael Collins, president of Consumer and Small Business, Dell Technologies. “This year our direct-to-consumer business model is serving our customers well. Whether for work, play or learning, we’re making it easier and less stressful for people to shop our most award-winning products on Dell.com.”

Did you know that approximately $200+ billion was spent online with U.S. retailers in Q2, up 44% from last year1? For Dell.com it was even higher – Dell’s consumer direct online business was up 79% based on orders in that same timeframe2.

Retail analysts predict record-setting online holiday shopping3. Dell is leveraging its longstanding expertise in e-commerce and making investments in Dell.com to deliver a more intuitive, convenient shopping experience for its customers.

Here’s what you can expect from Dell this holiday shopping season:

Save big and enjoy extended offers. With Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals running over seven weeks from Oct. 15 – Dec. 7, customers have more freedom to shop online earlier and at their convenience.
