Looking to get a Surface and don’t mind grabbing yesterdays hardware? If so, Microsoft has a killer deal for you by offering the Surface (previously known as the Surface RT) for $199.
Microsoft will be offering this pricing at its Microsoft stores and online but if you are headed out to Best Buy, they too, will be offering the same deal.
But, if you find yourself saying, “I wish they had a Touch Cover bundle”, put a smile on your face as Staples and WalMart will be offering the Surface with a black Touch cover for $249.
These prices will certainly make the first generation devices highly attractive and will likely be targeted by the budget conscious consumers on Black Friday.
A breakdown of the offers and when they will be available is below, via Microsoft:
- Microsoft Stores: On 11/27 at 9:00pm PT you can get Surface starting at just $199! Free shipping is included. This deal will be available through 12/2 in Microsoft Stores and online.
- Best Buy: On 11/29 at 12:01am PST Surface starting at $199.
- WalMart: Surface 64GB with a black Touch Cover will be starting at $249.
- Staples: On 11/28 at 8pm PST Surface 32GB with a black Touch Cover will be available at Staples starting at just $249.
All things considered, this is a fantastic deal for a tablet that ships with Office. If you are looking to score one of these tablets, it’s likely best to plan ahead as we suspect that they will be moving quickly off store shelves.
