Microsoft announces Surface Plus and Surface Plus for Business Program

IT

The ambitious plan is open for the Surface Book, Surface Studio surface laptop, and Surface Pro.

With the Surface Plus program, customers can purchase a Surface device with an easy 24 month payment plan at 0% April. The program offers flexible financing options that are created to help people take advantage of Microsoft's Surface lineup of PCs. The zero percent financing rate is only good for 24 months, however, at which point the annual interest rate rises to 19.99 percent for purchases that are financed for longer periods. Buyers are also given the option of adding a Microsoft Complete extended service plan that allows them to get service and support within physical Microsoft Stores, not unlike what Apple does with its genius bar.

The program also includes a dedicated device service and support, as well as an in-store support and tech help.

Microsoft's debut of the student payment plan comes just before school season starts in August. Business also get service plans with accidental damage coverage. Those who opt for the business plan will be able to add a number of devices into a single agreement. For an additional $8.25 per user per month, businesses can enjoy the ultimate productivity experience on Surface.

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.

The mooted fee would shatter the record £89m Manchester United paid Juventus for midfielder Paul Pogba 12 months ago. Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino considers Eric Dier's links to Manchester United to be a "good signal".

As a result, Microsoft is looking to entice buyers that would have otherwise passed on Surface hardware with the new Surface Plus and Surface Plus for Business financing programs. The program is called the Surface Plus Program and it is for customers and businesses that want to put out less money upfront.

Unlock all the benefits of Surface Plus, including phone and in-store technical support.

In May, a few weeks after unveiling its new Surface Laptop, Microsoft announced the new Surface Pro tablet - the successor to its Surface Pro 4, which it released in 2015.
