    Will you offer the same Student Deals (10% discount) for Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2?

    Go to their site, put in your school email addy and get the 10% off code emailed. Then use for your preorder I assume.

    I used my .edu account and requested a code. The codes do not work for the Surface 2 - regardless of what Panos said in the AMA. I double checked with the Microsoft Store chat - and they confirmed - only good for the original surface.

    This is typical of Microsoft and something that should have been resolved prior to the pre-order. I have a letter out to Ballmer now to see what the story is. I could not figure out how to email to Panos - tried multiple email addresses using the templates of other MS employees.

    For now - no preorder for me....

    Wow you are right! I just tried to preorder with my code and no go. I guess no pre-order for me as well. I'll call them to see If I can find out anything different.

    This is very frustrating, it's what I had planned on doing! There isn't a Microsoft store near my school either so unless they change this on the site I'll have to purchase it from somewhere else.

    10% can be $100-$170 if you are buying a surface pro, 50 if you are buying the surface 2.

    That is a good sum of money. It might be worth waiting until they let you use the discount. Also if you live in a state with sales tax, it will basically cover this. 10% when buying something over $100 can be a good reason not to buy something.

    Yes it is. (DAYLIFE) was that user that felt it was odd that some of us wanted to wait before we purchased. I'm at my local MS Store now. They are not doing 10% Student discount on preorders but they will on launch day. The code we received with our EDU address is for online only. On launch day, just bring your student ID for the 10% discount. I just reserved a Surface2 for $50 and will be back on launch day with my Student ID to pay the balance minus today's $50 and minus the 10%.

    p.s. I'm actually responding to this post from a Surface2. Both Surface2 and Surface Pro 2 are on display.

    I spoke to someone from executive support. I told them either we get the student discount or we don't. What is the difference if we use it on pre-ordering? The point is we are ordering. She admitted that it didn't make sense. I'm going to wait because I can and the money is money - not something I should to throw away because the different parts of Microsoft can't get their act together and agree on anything.

    To the person above who couldn't believe that someone would wait for the 10% - you are a fool - and you know what they say about a fool and his money...

    How was the speed on the Surface2? Big step up from the RT?

    Yes it is! Launching apps on the Surface2 is only a sec behind or less than the SurfacePro2.

    Just chatted with MS customer Service and they say no. Also, there is no way of knowing the final total (+tax) before finalizing the purchase.

    The deal is still on, you have to show your Student ID on launch day. Or you can talk to customer service and they'll do ti over the phone.

    "Hey nuprotocol, you can apply the student discount on Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 through Microsoft Store's call centers 1-877-696-7786. You just need a valid .edu address or you can visit a retail store."

    Got that reply on their FB page. Go ahead and use that number.

    You can still use the discount at retail once the Surface 2 comes out, yeah?
