How to find the best deals on Microsoft Surface tablet
Whether you prefer your Microsoft tablet with RT or Windows 8 Pro, the Surface doesn’t come cheap. With the RT retailing at $499 and the Windows 8 Pro starting at $899, you’ll have to put down some serious cash to get on the Microsoft tablet train. But there’s always ways to save some money, if you look in the right places.
Saving a small percentage
If you prefer to shop at a big brick-and-mortar store you have two very good options for picking up The Surface. First, there’s Best Buy where you can grab 2 percent cash back on your purchase, thus giving you a bit of savings on your big time purchase.
Your other major options are Microsoft and Staples, where you can actually grab a Surface plus 4 percent cash back! With the price of the Surface the same at all three stores, your choice essentially comes down to which store you prefer, or if you have gift cards for one or the other.
Submit bids for a used Surface
There is also a third option that will save you considerable cash – eBay. While there’s no cash back offer for eBay, you can save a ton on used or barely used electronics with the retailer. If you’re getting The Surface for a gift, this option is probably out. But if it’s just for you, why not save a few bucks and grab a tablet that’s been lightly used? It might even have a game or two already on it!
As the tablet market gets more and more entrants, expect lower prices. As a tech geek myself, I completely understand the impulse to get out and get the gadget you want as soon as possible. At least with the above options you’ll be able to save a little bit of money as you enjoy your new gadget.
