Open Awards Up to Other Countries

  • 55

PLEASE!!! For the however manyeth time I have asked now - open your rewards up to other Countries including Australia.

Current competition is for an Aurora but again ... can't enter ... not for an Aurora, not for a T-Shirt, not for some Dell bucks, not for a sticker.

Gonna say it again, I actually paid $3000 AUD for my AW17R2 a few years back and I feel I should be entitled to enter competitions and claim rewards to get something back ... just like allowed Country participants can ... and most of which would not have even purchased an Alienware.

This feels slightly in the vain of discrimination - why are some here treated like second rate citizens of the Dell/Alienware Universe

we have we just added in our best friend Canada... in time i am sure the other countries will be added 


Totally agree: we are second class citizen. But I don't buy Alienware to win a tee shirt. I have been using Alienware since 20+ years way before the arena rewards website because I always have been happy with the robustness and performance of them. However communication is important for a brand and I have seen on this website some sexist content I condemn. There is a lot of gamer brands now who sell not only peripherals but computers and are more inclusive. 


Agree fully


Entering for any reward to "get something back" sounds quite backwards. You bought the product to enjoy the product, not the possible random giveaways.

They also can't just remove restrictions as there are tons of issues with legality and possibly some with additional distribution cost.


Thanking you for your input.

And as I've already said before regarding this same gripe this is a multi billion dollar company we are dealing with here I.e., Dell/Alienware.

Your opinion is your opinion and I respect that, however I disagree that I shouldn't be entitled to "random giveaways" as you put it.

I for one have supported Dell/Alienware by purchasing one (nay multiple on my own and others behalves) of their products I.e., a high end Alienware laptop and I also have an older Dell desktop and a further Dell Laptop along with the several other machines I have in my premises ... and I should be as entitled to enter a draw for "random giveaways" as even those who simply join the forum without having even purchased an Alienware and/or Dell can provided they are in the "right" Country along with those that have indeed purchased a Dell/Alienware.

What legality? Can you explain these? They can ship products here for retail sale so your point is?

Distribution cost? Again, they ship here for retail sales and again I will refer to the billion dollar profits they make from actual consumers of Dell/Alienware products like myself ... a drop in the ocean to them wouldn't you say? I'm in Australia ... not the first Mars landing mission expecting free technical support for my Dell/Alienware which I could be in the draw for. Explain your point.

And I don't know what thread you read before you decided to have an opinion on this one but at what stage did I ever mention that I did/didn't enjoy the product I purchased ... this is an entirely different subject completely.

Again, thanks for the input - have a nice day :)

No one said you didn't enjoy the product, I simply claimed that is the only reasonable factor why anyone should buy a product. You can disagree as much as you want, no one here is entitled to anything just because they are buying their products. The giveaways are often to get a new long term customer rather than reward the ones that already own a product. On top of that they already have a Dell Rewards program that serves the purpose of rewarding loyal customers.

Legality, each country has its laws for doing luck based giveaways. Completely different than selling a product on the market of the said country.

They don't ship for retail sales everywhere, there are often middleman retailers. Having billion dollar profits is irrelevant if they don't want to justify the cost. It wouldn't be the first nor the last time a giant corporation was stingy. I also said that as a possibility, which doesn't necessarily mean they do have a problem with spending few hundreds more.

Again thanks for your comment - I will assume at this point that you are either American or Canadian and are therefore very happy with your lot I.e., the opportunity to win prizes from Alienware Arena - good on you :)
