successful OEM vista return to dell
I purchased a new notebook from dell, and successfully received $100 for my
unused copy of Vista Home Basic.

$100 being more than the street value price of OEM Home Basic (source:
newegg), I'd say I made out pretty good. I was expecting $50 based on the
one other person I've read about online that got a refund.

Initially they would not allow it for the common reasons listed already
(didn't pay for it, have to return the complete system, system can not run
without it, it was a bundle, etc). Once breaking through this barrier and
getting through, I was offered a $75 coupon which I declined and restated I
wanted to return Vista for a refund.

I was then offered a $75 credit to my credit card, which I declined, and
again restated my wish. Following was an offer of a $100 coupon.

I accepted the $100 coupon and will use it to buy a 160gb 7200rpm HDD from
dell for my notebook. The coupon is being processed and will be emailed to
me within two business days.

Hooray, another score for windows refund!
