    I have been a loyal Microsoft user for years now. I have Xbox 360, Xbox one, Surface, HP Stream, HP Pavilion laptop and a Lumia. Also bought numerous other for my nephews'. I also subscribe to Xbox live, Xbox music and OneDrive.

    Now for my gripe, although I understand that certain offers that Microsoft has have to be region limited for certain reasons. I do not understand why they only seem to bother with US only offers. I'm in the Uk and it starting to get really annoying.

    I know US is there home and also biggest market. However I just don't understand why they seem to ignore the other markets where they could make big strides in market share if only they would show the same love to other markets as they do US.

    It is not just the offers that are limited either but also certain services and functions within services. Then also some devices. The main device annoying me is the band however there are others.

    Ok moaning done. Just needed to say it.

    MS is made in USA and made for USA.
    (and their services and gifts are proof of that)

    If they get time from USA then they think about other countries.

    Yes I completely agree and don't forget every thing you mentioned cost us more. including apps. If an app cost 1$ in the US you can be sure it cost us 1€

    That's not entirely true. The L735, 830 and 930 are on offer at the moment - buy one and you receive a free FitBit flex (which is sent very quickly - I have one.)

    There are also offers in the MS Store.

    Don't forget that many Windows tablets come with a year's subscription to Office 365 for one tablet and one other device, together with 1TB OneDrive storage. The Lumia 640 and 640XL will also have a year's subscription included.

    What sort of offers and promotions are you looking for?

    Xbox music, Xbox live are 2 that have recently been on offer. There is Bing rewards. There are deivces and accessories for different things that you can't get over in uk either. I agree there are some offers here. But I think they should reward those who pay subscriptions to there services rather than just the one's who buy a new device.
