Microsoft newest Surface 3 is now shipping and available for sale, and the software giant wants to make a deal for you to upgrade your Surface RT or Surface 2 to the beautiful Surface 3.
In a new trade-in program, Microsoft will give you up to $150 when you let go your Surface RT or Surface 2 and you buy a brand new Surface 3.
Although, there isn’t much money you get in return, it’s actually a good deal considering that neither of the previous tablets will be upgraded to Windows 10.
Surface 3, on the other hand, is a smaller and less powerful than the Surface Pro 3, but it runs the full version of the operating system, so you can install all kinds of applications.
The new Surface trade-in program is only available for limited time (5/5/2015 – 5/31/2015) in the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. Although, the tablet is available Australia, Hong Kong, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, Taiwan, and Thailand.
Also note that on May 7, Surface 3 will be available in the following countries as well: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
Here is how things work: If you bring your Surface RT, you won’t get the $150, you’ll only get up to $100, because it’s an older version of the tablet. However, if you bring your Surface 2, you can possibly get the advertised $150.
Getting the maximum amount of money for your device is a Microsoft decision that is calculated on the device condition and accessories. Once the trade-in is made, you’ll receive a promo code via email to apply the discount when you purchase your Surface 3.
