Back to School
A computer is the most essential tool in any student’s backpack -- you’ll use it to write essays, download lectures, check emails and binge Netflix. It’s important to get a reliable one, but shopping for a Windows laptop can be confusing, so if you’re a student looking for a new Windows laptop, the Microsoft Store should be your first stop.
The Microsoft Store for Students offers 10% off select accessories, PCs and Surface products -- when shopping online, you’ll need to verify eligibility via a school email address in order to checkout with education pricing. When shopping in a Microsoft Store, simply tell an employee that you’re a student.
Products eligible for student discounts are available throughout the store and total savings will depend on the regular price -- look for a note on product pages indicating that a lower price is available to students. We’ve listed direct links to product categories eligible for education pricing.
- Accessories -- up to $25.00 off
- Surface -- up to $450.00 off
- Surface Accessories -- up to $30.00 off
- Windows Desktops -- up to $350.00 off
- Windows Laptops -- up to $600.00 off
- Windows Tablets -- up to $175.00 off
One benefit of shopping at the Microsoft Store is that all computers are Signature Edition models, which means there is no additional software pre-installed on top of Windows, so you won’t have to spend time deleting unwanted trial programs after buying your computer.
Post-secondary students, parents and staff at all education levels are eligible for education pricing in the Microsoft Store -- click here to view the store terms and conditions.
