4 weeks left of the Surface RT Summer deal!


With our Surface RT Summer deal in full swing, and only 4 weeks left to make the most of the fantastic offer, we really wanted to share with you some final tips and pointers on the deal.

4 more weeks to benefit from the Surface RT Summer Offer

As previously mentioned, due to the fantastic level of interest the deal has received, the deadline has been extended to the 30th September 2013 so that those of you haven’t been able to make your orders over the holidays, can still benefit from 4 more weeks order time.


Windows 8.1

We are excited to share some of the benefits Surface owners will have access to, one of which is a free upgrade to Windows 8.1. With Windows 8.1, colleges, schools and universities will be able to benefit from better security, longer battery life thanks to the embedded wireless radio and simple tag-to-pair printing, avoiding longwinded printer connection setups. Sure to fare well with students rushing to hand in deadlines on time!

Filling in your order form

As before, please make sure the 'Bill to' and 'Ship to' sections are both the same to avoid orders from slowing down. Similarly, to avoid delays, make sure to fill in the 'Purchase Order Number' and 'Institution VAT number'. If the VAT number is not applicable, please make sure to write N/A .


Sending your order form

All order forms please need to be sent to SurfaceEDU@microsoft.com. Please note, the offer is eligible to Academic Institutions only.

Order Process

After the inhaul of orders and enquiries, we are happy to report that we have streamlined our order process and reduced lead time from 20 days to 7 to 10 days.

If your Surface RT delivery comes without attachments such as keyboards, please rest assured that the attachments will follow 3 to 5 days later.


For any further queries, please send your emails to educationuk@microsoft.com

Again, we apologise for any delays you have experienced and thank you kindly for your patience.

Make the most of the last 4 weeks to come!
