Microsoft Store’s Back to School sale

Just in time for the new school year, there are great software and hardware deals in the Microsoft Store for Lumia, Surface and other must-have devices for students and teachers.

School has officially begun, and if you’re still thinking about getting a new Surface tablet or Office subscription to help you become an academic whiz this semester, check out the deals in the Microsoft Store before they go away.

First, students and teachers get a 10 percent discount on PCs, tablets, phones, and accessories, as well as Office University and Office Student and Home subscriptions.

Depending on what country you live, you can save even more–these deals apply whether or not you’re taking or teaching classes.

For instance, save 200 euros by purchasing the Surface Pro 3 essentials bundle, which includes a Surface Pro 3 Type Cover, Maroo Folio sleeve, and a subscription to Office 365 Home or Office 365 Personal. Here in the U.S., you can save $25 off a phone case and charger when you order select Lumia phones such as the Microsoft Lumia 640 and Microsoft Lumia 640 XL.

And be sure to check the Microsoft Store every day for its lightning “One Day Only” sale. The online store will highlight special discounts good for that day only—deals that could include huge savings on some of your favorite devices such as Xbox, accessories, and software.

Another way you’ll save money: The Microsoft Store also offers free standard shipping so you don’t have to pay for delivery.
