    Hey guys, has anybody seen any deals on the Surface 2 in the UK? I saw that PC world where doing 5% off but that offer has ended.

    I called Microsoft today and they had no information on Student deals.

    Argos have a 'pay now or pay within six months' policy.

    Sorted.

    Argos don't do the Type keyboard which I can only describe as annoying!

    I just feel like an ***** for passing up 450 for the keyboard and tablet from PC World, I just thought I could do better :(

    Yeah but you can pay over six months. Use the money you essentially 'save' to buy the TypeCover.

    I'm surprised Currys PC World don't have some sort of Buy Now Pay Later option, they normally do. I would be surprised if they didn't soon in the run up to Christmas. Alas with a Holiday next week I'm not in a position to drop money on a Surface right now...

    No worries. If you wanna get another one so I can pass it on to my dad and you don't mind me paying you over six months then let me know ;) Argos won't give me an Argos Card because I don't have a full-time job...even though I have three part-time jobs in the same school, working continuously from 8.30-5! You'd think they'd give me the benefit of the doubt!

    Im incredibly glad that MS learnt there lesson from the RT launch - Its great being able to go into almost any electrical retailer on release day and pick one up - definitely think the Argos deal buy now pay in 6 months is the way forward.

    Does anyone know where I can pickup a type cover 2 in the UK? Have looked everywhere most stores are just bundling it, without an option to purchase separately :(

    Nowhere, at the moment. Just the online Microsoft Store.

    Pc world are selling them separately in store for 109 - Tottenham court road only has purple and black - purple looks great BTW - although they have only got type covers not touch.

    Great there is a local store near my home. Is this the Type Cover 2? Or the original one?

    I apologise, it seems as if Currys & PC World do sell them.

    I was surprised as well - expected a bit of spiel from the guy in PC world about bundles but he said I could get the type cover 2 separately. Considering buying one for my RT.

    Do you know if they have a 'buy now, pay later' policy like Argos? Stuck with my TouchCover 1 at the moment, and seeing as though I just forked out 359 for a Surface 2, I can't afford a TypeCover 2 yet. But if they had a 'buy now, pay later' policy, then that'd do me nicely!

    No harm in asking, but normally there is a minimum purchase value for credit at CPCW

    I think PC world do a finance plan but it only starts on items over 500 and trust me if you had trouble getting finance with Argos you will have no chance with PC world they dig through everything in your history before even considering talking to you about credit. Tried getting a new TV with them a few months ago and failed miserably apparently on credit rating.

    My sister works in PC World, as far as I know they have 3 plans for finance. Off the top of my head one is a buy now pay later (6 months), and another is 10 monthly installments (no interest).

    Not sure what the minimum price is for finance. I'm also hoping to do this. Will swing by there tonight and grab my Type cover 2!

    Could you let me know what the deal is with that please? Thanks.

    It's not exactly a deal, but if you buy from John Lewis you get an extra years warranty free (so first year with Microsoft, second year with John Lewis).

    No doubt those of you that have bought one already know a lot more than the rest of us that are still weighing things up about prices and the best places to buy. Can you detail the prices you paid, warranty info and any cashback through sites like Quidco etc. - anything that'll help us to get the best deals we can in the UK?
