Dell has been running some amazing deals on its hottest line of Alienware laptops and PCs this long weekend, but Memorial Day itself is here and we've just found a coupon code that will make the already discounted deals even better by smashing an additional $50 off. That means you can save nearly $500 on some items.
This Alienware sale might have some of the most tempting offers we've seen so far this year. Indeed, Dell has slashed the price of an Alienware m15 R1 gaming laptop by $445, plus take another $50 off with the code, 50OFF699 and you pay just $1249.99. The very powerful Alienware Aurora R8 and R9 gaming desktops are both getting involved too. We certainly didn't expect to see the R9 drop way under $800 today.
- Dell coupon code for extra $50 off: 50OFF699
- Alienware m15 R1 for $1,249.99 (save $495)
- Alienware Aurora R8 for $1,399.99 (save $250)
- Alienware Aurora R9 for $769.99 (save $50)
These are significant discounts on great gaming tech. In particular, the Alienware m15 R1 wins a gong as one of the best gaming laptops in our opinion thanks to its 9th-gen i7 processor and respectable 1660 Ti graphics card. It may not be able to handle more demanding games at their highest settings, but it'll still serve you well. And at just $1,249.99 instead of over $1,700, that's good value for money in this Memorial Day Alienware sale.
Elsewhere, the Alienware Aurora R8 desktop impresses with its 9th-gen i7 CPU and a very tempting RTX 2070 Super graphics card for incredibly high-quality visuals. This is still one of Alienware's best machines, even though it's since been replaced with the R9 model (you can find out more in our Alienware R9 review). In fact, we'd argue it's one of the best gaming PCs you can get your hands on right now.
As for the R9, you can pick up its cheapest model today at Dell for just $769.99 with the coupon code. This gets you a 9th-gen i5, GTX 1650 graphics card, and more. There are higher-spec models available too.

Use Dell coupon code: 50OFF699. This is a powerful little laptop that features a fast, modern processor and a respectable graphics card to go along with it.

$1,645 $1,399.99 at Dell
Use Dell coupon code: 50OFF699. The Aurora R8 range is an excellent choice of desktop gaming PC, and you're unlikely to find anything better unless you upgrade to the R9. This one featuring a very powerful RTX 2070 Super graphics card is a real selling point, particularly at $250 less than normal.
Alienware Aurora R9 gaming PC (9th-gen i5 + GTX 1650) |
$819.99 $769.99 at Dell
Use Dell coupon code: 50OFF699. The newer Aurora R9 is a beautiful-looking piece of PC gaming kit, and the prices start surprisingly small for the entry-level spec version. The same link takes you through to the full range, so you can opt for some meatier spec and apply the same discount code to save an additional $50.
This isn't the only gaming-related offer for Memorial Day, though - the massive Razer Memorial Day sale is filled with some of the best accessories at a much lower price. Meanwhile, the Memorial Day 4K TV sale shows no sign of slowing down.
