Microsoft this week unveiled two leasing programs for its various Surface devices - one for students and one for SMBs - that both have plenty of fine print to consider.
If you have been considering purchasing a Microsoft Surface tablet but have been restricted by the price, you may be interested to know that Microsoft has today announced a new Surface Plus and Surface Plus for Business payment systems which allows customers based in the United States to spread payments over 24 months for hardware.
Microsoft has a new offer for their users and businesses with their new line of tablet computers - Surface. "Along with the Surface laptops and Surface Studio, the 55" Surface Hub is also included.
Availing the Surface Plus program will grant customers access to service and support, including a Surface training session, from Microsoft Stores.
Surface Plus also offers a free year of support in Microsoft's stores. As long as you have been making regular payments and haven't fallen behind, you will be eligible to upgrade to a brand-new device after 18 months.
"Surface is designed to help people better create, collaborate, learn, and get things done", Microsoft's Liz Hamren explains. Customers will also be granted a 30-day return window, and can choose to avail the Microsoft Complete extended service plan.
Surface Plus lets buyers get a Surface device with no interest and 24-months to pay. Businesses can upgrade their devices after 12 months on a 24-month purchase plan or after 18 months on a 30-month plan, and can also expand or reduce the number of devices they are using midterm, according to Microsoft. Maybe it's time for me to price out a sweet Surface Laptop.
Microsoft is advertising the Surface Plus program as the ideal solution for students.
Those who finance under this program are given the option of upgrading their device after 18 months have passed, just like with a smartphone.
