First 100 Surface puchases get a bonus on Black Friday at Microsoft Stores

If you haven't picked up a Surface yet and have been waiting for an incentive, here's one. On Black Friday the first 100 people to buy a Surface in a Microsoft retail store will get a special 'Designed for Surface' protective sleeve.

While you're not getting a discount on the tablet device itselt, it's still a $50 item thrown in that you'll probably put to good. Gotta protect that VaporMG casing! It's a nice little deal for those who were already looking on buying a Surface and happen to have a retail Microsoft Store around, maybe like the one in Canada that just opened.

Surface Black Friday Deal

Another deal with the Surface running this weekend in Microsoft Stores and their online component saves you another $50 off a second Surface Touch or Type cover. To get this deal, either buy a 32GB or 64GB Surface with a touch cover and you can then get another cover for fifty bones less. Deals all around this weekend.

No word yet if this deal is available at the pop-up locations, but we'll look into it and let you all know. Anyone plan on picking up a Surface this weekend or waiting for the Pro version to come out?

Waiting for Pro !! Please release soon :(

i think Surface Pro is amazing. But microsoft have to release AND keyboard with battery (for extra life).

latempete says:

I hear that! Ugh, I know they are saying January but I'd LOVE to have one by Christmas. I am ready to pre-order now!

I usually hide inside my house on Black Friday.

WilliamC1972 says:

Lol..... Plus 1!!!!

poddie says:

Me too. I was going to say... $50 savings is nowhere near what it would take to get me to go to the MS store in Oakbrook mall on Black Friday. Maybe half price... But then I would already know I would never be able to get one.

tribexx says:

Get out, take a walk, laugh at the people and grab some cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory across the street. I like going in and asking specific windows phone questions that they can't answer...

@poddie, its not that bad. Went last year for free a free Titan and Focus S.

My fingers do the shopping on Black Friday thanks to Amazon ;-)

Waiting for the pro :(

wpguy says:

Still waiting for Surface Pro, but I like what Microsoft is doing for the sale.

prissysox says:

Look at all the prints on screen. You would think they would clean screen for photo op

crav4speed says:

What about everyone that preordered? Doesn't it mean anything that I was one of the first to buy one EVER?

schlubadub says:

Does it make you special? :P

Here's to hoping Surface RT will be in Denmark by black friday! Orded my iPad last year from Apple's website and saved a lot :D

crazygonzo says:

Pro in January is too late, they really messed up the release date. 

fpostrow says:

Hey MS! You wanna blow the doors down? BOGO! You heard me. First 10 in the door buy one, get one of ANY Surface. That would get some attention.

myjota says:

Prooooo wheeeereeee areee youuu :)

jimski says:

My guess is the Surface Pros are sitting in a warehouse somewhere waiting for 2013. Microsoft probably made an arrangement with their OEMs to hold off, giving them a head start for the holiday season. Undoubtedly the Pro will be nice, but unless you have a specific need for the added features, the price may be hard to swallow.
