Anyway... this might be able to be made better, but here's what I got.
Build up system starting from the dell save750 page. Unlike a month ago, you NEED to start with one of these to get the big discount. There are more limitations this time (can't drop 1 year in home service and just have mail in warranty and save $35, can't get the 7200rpm HDD, etc.) Get your total over $1550. (Might work with total of $1500)
You should already have the ~$49 free shipping discount.
Apply the big $750 off code. You should have a total now over $799 (which is why I started with a total over $1550 rather than $1500) allowing the free shipping ~$49 discount to remain.
Apply the Dell Home "electronics and accessories" $35 off >$300 and it works! (I am getting a rather plain laptop, no extra software nor accessories, etc. My $1550 was all hardware like WXUGA display and larger hard disk. In other words, I didn't get any "accessories or electronics" like cameras, cables, printers, etc.!) Anyway, this discount now shows up.
I tried applying the $50 off when using Dell Preferred Account, but couldn't get it to be accepted while the $750 was in there. Hmm, -$750 or -$50?? I discarded this one.
Apply the -2% Dell Preferred Account discount. This 2% discount shows up later when are at the last payment page.
for Payment, sellect Dell Preferred Account. Apply if you haven't. I don't get the no-interest-if-paid-before Jan 2006. My interest rate is still over 21%. But I do get 20 days or so to pay in full and avoid any interest AND get the 2% (~$15) discount.
Ok, that's the order and best stacking I could manage.

Thanks for the tip and I usually downgrade the warranty from "in home" to "mail in" as well
Most of these "selected available base systems" will have the 1 year in home warranty... and this is what is forcing the "extra sales tax" that many haven't seen before on their Dell orders.
