Galaxy Note 10 Deal: BOGO at Verizon!

    There is a post going on over at The Verge in the Microsoft forum about a dock being thrown in for Surface Pro 3 Pre-orders.

    Anyone able to confirm or deny this at all? I went in to a Microsoft Store to preorder one and the dock didn't show up on my receipt.

    I think it's safe to say that's not the case. If they were going to throw anything in it would be the keyboard

    Doubt it. They would of mentioned it. And there would of been an article about it. Also looking at his screen shot of the receipt the customer name is Brain Gray. Gray brain?? I'm a little skeptical if that is someone's name.

    Edit:
    Looked at the guys name on user it is brian gray. The receipt must of been a typo.

    I wouldn't let the fact that his name is Brian Gray being a deterrent to it possibly being true.

    The post I read at The Verge said the "pre-orders are free, including the dock station." That means that you can preorder the SP3 and accessories, including the dock station, without having to actually buy them when they are available. They just get put back into stock. It has nothing to do with getting a freebie dock station.

    Alrighty. But mike made a good point they would probably be more likely to throw the keyboard in for free not the dock or all the accessories. I still don't believe the guy who posted it on the verge. But if I'm wrong fantastic news!

    That makes more sense.

    The Microsoft Store does allow you to preorder things without having to do a deposit. I know this seeing as i did it for the surface pro 3 myself.

    Thing is of that was the case why did the poster not know that? He was surprised to see the dock on his receipt. He would have had to explicitly say he wanted the dock for it to be included on his receipt.

    That being said, it wasn't on mine when I Pre-ordered .

    I see. I must've read a different post on The Verge because it didn't mention a receipt (or a Brain even!)

    I can't see that the dock is listed as being compatible with the SP3. Is it?

    That was me. You can preorder the dock. It isn't free. You can have it as part of your in-store preorder, but you can not preorder the dock online yet. That was my point.

    I was surprised that pre-ordering the dock was an option given you can not do it online or at any of the other stores yet.

    Yeah, MS doesn't have the new dock up for pre-order anywhere and there wouldn't be a need to pre-order the Pro/Pro 2 dock. I recall that there was a limited number of the original Pro docks at launch and then a none for a couple months. Perhaps the stores get first dibs. ...quietly.

    After visiting two Microsoft stores, I hope he doesn't get a SP 2 dock.

    It is a different part number from what I can find online. Perhaps they are spoken for? Wishful thinking.

    Ah the famous photobriangray, its good to hear from you. This thread was made from your post on The Verge.

    It's good to have the clarification that you could just preorder the dock as well as anything really for free. It has nothing to do with anything actually being free.

    Hm... When I went to the MS store, they asked if I wanted to pre-order the dock. And they said it was the SP3 dock and would be available on the 20th.

    My product# is 296-00693

    Seems to me there are a limited number of docks and a few lucky stores get first dibs. Cool. Hope it show up.
