Dell Free Memory Upgrade Plenty of PCs are on sale at for their back-to-school blowout. But on top of the discount you’ll also get a free memory upgrade on their most popular laptops, which is a $45 value. Plus, if you use coupon code ?8CN$RJ?W5TQ0C at checkout you’ll score free shipping on orders over $599.
