The Microsoft Store has launched its annual back-to-school sale, offering great deals on Surface devices, PCs, Xbox One, and more.
“Sales during the back to school shopping season will reach an estimated $857.18 billion, accounting for 17 percent of total retail sales for the year with great demand for computers and consumer electronics during the season,” a Microsoft representative told me. “Today, Microsoft Store announced back to school deals to help students and young professionals start new adventures and make ideas happen.”
You can find out more about the sale on the Microsoft Store online, or at a local Microsoft retail store. But here’s a rundown of some of the deals:
Surface Pro 4 and Type Cover (black). Surface Pro 4 with a black Type Cover (Core i5, 8 GB of RAM, 256 GB of SSD storage) is just $999, or $899 if you’re a student. That is a great price for that configuration.
Surface Book. You can save up to $150 on Surface Book, with a temporary new base price of $1350.
Free Groove Music Pass. Buy any Surface device and receive a three month Groove Music Pass membership.
