We want to make sure everyone is starting this school year off on the right foot. So today, Microsoft is launching a program to help students and parents purchase a new Windows PC or Tablet for school that is complete with the latest and most complete set of Office applications.
At the Windows Chip In website, students with a valid .edu email address can crowd source funds to help them purchase a PC of their choosing from the Microsoft Store catalogue of devices. To help get them started, Windows will “chip in” the first 10% of the cost of the PC via a discount to the overall cost. The PCs included already reflect the 10% discount. Then, when a student fully funds the cost of a PC, we will include Office 365 University at no additional charge.* Plus, students wont have to pay shipping, handling or tax!
Here’s how it works:
- Go to http://www.windowschipin.com/.
- Pick out the PC you’d like to help get funding for.
- Create an account.
- Ask friends and family to “chip In”.
- Fund and receive a code for a brand new Windows PC or Tablet + Office 365 University.
**Microsoft Office 365 University subscriptions available to the first 10,000 eligible participants who fully fund their PC goal through this offer.
