    oh get a grip. its just tax deducted. microsoft can easily pay that off.
    Stealing isn't unethical based on how impactful the amount stolen is, it's unethical because it's wrong. It's wrong because you're claiming to be something you're not. You're directly violating the terms of the offer - Microsoft Store Student Offer.

    If you're a fan of Microsoft's services and products, why would you steal from them?

    It's a deal put in place to help sell hardware to students not an altruistic way to make hardware more affordable. If it was really the latter, like with some of the student software programs, there would be more stringent controls put in place to validate enrollment.
    It's both a promotion to sell products and a benefit for students.

    Although Microsoft calls it the "Student Offer," the terms specifically include faculty and staff of schools along with parents of students in K-12 schools, colleges or universities. In the case of parents, they must be buying on behalf of their student.

    You can also check out staples.com. They have standard 5% back on store credit with their rewards system.

    I saw mentioned on an Apple forum (needed to buy a Macbook Air) That the USPS Post office has a 10% Best Buy coupon in a free "Moving change your adress pack"

    Might help someone? I'm not in the USA so have to wait until September when I next visit to grab a SP3.

    Good deal. I'll stop at the Post Office on the way to the office this morning. That way I won't have to deal with the whole talking to the manager thing.

    I'd posted this over in another thread, but since this is the deal thread, I'll post it here, too. Last night I stopped in at Best Buy, told the guy I was going to want to get a SP3, and wanted student discount. He said they can only use .edu address. I don't have one, because my school doesn't issue email addresses to students. I told him I could bring course schedule in. He said not good enough. So I left figuring I'd bring course schedule on Friday, talk to manager, tell manager that the only reason I'm at a Worst Buy (of course I'd call it the other name for him) is because they're an hour closer than Microsoft Store, and Microsoft Store offers student discount, and if he wants the sale, then take the discount. If not, I'll drive the hour. But this coupon will save all that.

    Thanks, DolphinParty!

    Well, I stopped at the post office and picked up two of the moving packs. No Best Buy coupons. His post office must be better than mine.

    Dude we don't care. Microsoft built it's fortune off of a stolen GUI originally designed by xerox. Trust me this is just business at the end of the day. Keep your morality because it has nothing to do with us saving a few dollars.

    It has already been demonstrated in this thread that people care - and more than just me. You choose to be a thief, that's your business. But don't make a blanket statement that no one cares. It is a lie from the devil himself, the father of all lies.

    Thanks! Its nice to know some people still read lol. But the crappy thing about that though is if it didnt work the deal will be over. But I did it with the i5 256 so hopefully it worked cause the deals too good to pass up! Ive never used fat wallet before either. Once its in my account can you just send the cash as a check or into your account?

    I have been using FatWallet successfully. Most recently used it for a few Priceline purchases. The cashback amount was credited as expected to my PayPal account. As the other poster already mentioned, it does work seamlessly. Just log-in to your Fatwallet account, search for the store you want to shop at from within their site and click the link to the store. I forgot to use this when I pre-ordered the SP3 (damn!!!) but remembered at the time of ordering the Type Cover 3. Following ~48 hours of placing the order, I got an email from FatWallet mentioning that a cashback was reported to them by Microsoft Store and it will be available in my account end-July. Bottomline, yes try to use FatWallet - it works just fine!!!

    Has Costco ever sold any Surface Pro's before? If yes, how much cheaper was it compared to places like Staples or Best Buy?

    Anybody know the trade in value of the surface RT 2 with or without the type cover 2 at the Microsoft store. Best buy is offering 217 doll hairs.

    It is in perfect condition!

    Probably $100 more. That's how much Microsoft was trying to give me in comparison to BestBuy for my Surface Pro 2.

    Had my wife stop at the post office by the house on her way home (I'd stopped at the one by my work). They had the coupon! WOOHOO!

    The one by my work had old packets - no BB coupon, and the Lowe's coupon was expired in February.

    Dang...I'm going to swing by mine.

    I didn't pre-order as I want to wait a week or two before I buy. I'll stack that with the education discount and just grab it from Best Buy.

    It's a Microsoft discount, but Best Buy should provide it and get it through MS.

    They should since the coupon is Best Buy and the edu discount is Microsoft.

    No different than stacking the Fatwallet coupon and edu discount online.

    Nope. They didn't let me stack it. Oh well.
