If you enter all of the service tags into the Dell support page it can
track them as a group and then you download the whole list in several
different formats (cvs, excel, etc).

There's no way developed by Dell to do this.

I ended up writing a python script to talk to the web form and then
parse out the information. If you'd like the script it can be found


You need to download both files and you'll need to have python-mechanize
installed for the script to work.

then just run:
grab-expire.py [servicetag]
