A Microsoft ‘buy one get one free’ deal opened for students on Wednesday and will run until August 14th.
The deal will see Microsoft give away a free Xbox One for every Surface Pro 4 tablet or Surface Book laptop and an Xbox One game console purchased from the online Microsoft Store.
The deal was announced by Terry Myerson, head of Windows and devices at Microsoft.
With this deal, customers who purchase the designated Microsoft products for students’ use will get $300 off the purchase price – enough to entirely cover the price of the Xbox game console.
Though this deal is a heck of deal as it also includes a free extra Xbox One wireless controller and a $50 gift code since the console also includes two free games, it is important to note that Microsoft’s Surface computers aren’t particularly cheap. You’ll be paying a minimum of $878.
The Microsoft’s deal comes just a week after the company revealed it’s ending production of its Surface 3 devices by year’s end.
