With Surface Plus, pay off your Surface device in monthly installments with zero percent interest for two years. Then upgrade after 18 months.
In the market for a new Microsoft Surface for school this fall? Microsoft’s Surface Plus program will let you pay for the device in installments and upgrade after 18 months.
Surface Plus is available exclusively for customers in the US at Microsoft’s brick-and-mortar stores and online.
“Whether it’s a Surface Laptop, Surface Pro, Surface Book, or Surface Studio—Surface Plus provides a simple, no-hassle plan to help students unlock their productivity and be more creative with Surface,” Liz Hamren, corporate vice president of Microsoft devices marketing, wrote in a blog post.
With Surface Plus, you can pay off your device in monthly installments with zero percent interest for two years (and a 19.99 percent annual percentage rate after 24 months). After 18 months, you can upgrade to the latest Surface device, as long as you turn in your existing gadget and agree to a new 24-month payment plan for the new one.
Surface Plus also gives you access to service and support, including a training session, at Microsoft Stores and the option to add the Microsoft Complete extended service plan. There’s also a 30-day return window.
Microsoft is bringing these benefits to small and medium-sized businesses as well. Surface Plus for Business lets SMBs add as many devices as needed, and a mix of models, to a single agreement. That includes the pricey 55-inch Surface Hub. Businesses can opt for an 18-, 24-, or 30-month contract and upgrade their devices after 12 months on the 24-month plan or after 18 months on the 30-month plan, as well as “expand or reduce their fleet mid-term.”
