    Did anyone get anything extra or have a good experience with their surface purchase?

    Yesterday morning, I ended up getting my preorder 64GB Surface 2 with touch cover 2. Along with this I got 10% educational discount, $25 dollars off, and a Surface/NFL t-shirt. The experience was easy and fast at the Corte Madera Store in CA. There was a few others picking their devices up. No crazy pandemonium or arrogant fans. Just people who wanted the device. Simple...

    I have not had the chance to use my surface 2 as my surface 1 is still in action. I did power it on to set it up though. Very easy. Once put my account information on the device, everything began to setup and look just like my old device. I just needed to allow the applications to download. I setup my promotional 200GB Skydrive and Skype services. I already had 25GB, that I was not using, but I will add more files to the cloud now. Since you can allow/disallow certain folders to sync on different computers, I am not worried about ridiculously redundant duplication of data and loss of storage space...

    Anywho, anyone else have a good experience?

    I didn't get to go to the store, but I ordered it online, and I love my surface pro 2.

    I also got (1) a 10% educational discount, (2) a package including the touch cover 2, any sleeve in the store (some up to $70 but I picked a $40 one), and a screen protector for $150, which could have been worth over $200, and (3) a $25 off $75 of stuff coupon that the guy gave me his e-mail and said to let him know when I wanted to use it and he could apply it to merchandise as low as $60. It was a pretty smooth experience.

    I got a Salesrep, at Bestbuy, annoying the crap out of me insisting that I should buy an extended warranty.

    I had a good experience. I got a 25.00 store credit and 10% off. The Surface is so smooth. I used it to remote to my desktop and you couldn't tell it was a remote connection. So glad I got the RT over the pro. Half the price, less weight and more battery and I don't see myself using desktop apps on it.

    How are you guys getting the $25 coupons? Does that only apply to pre-orders or launch day? I will likely pick up a Surface 2 in the next few weeks (directly from a MS Store).

    I went to the store. It was probably a day one promotion.

    Maybe a bing challenge reward or something. Just mention the $25 off $75 and see if they will give it to you.

    The only good thing I got (besides the surface 2) is I chose the standard shipment (5-7 days) and got it on the 22nd, 2 days after it was shipped.
