Getting special codes for the Microsoft Store is not as simple as it is with many other outlets. Microsoft does not always make them available to the general public, but it does keep a healthy amount of deals and special offers coming on its email newsletter. There are, however, other special codes that are often left unannounced. These can be found on specialty websites that collect information about the promotional codes available and that you can search through in order to find one that applies to you.
Common types of Microsoft Store promo code include:
• Student Discounts - Special pricing is available for students who can provide a valid .edu email address to Microsoft. These often take the form of 10% off software packages and hardware such as laptops and tablets.
• Single Product Discounts - Customers who would like to purchase hardware such as the Surface Pro 3 can often benefit from discounts that offer up to $150 off a single item's cost.
Either one of these discount types are usually widely available from Microsoft, but only advertised to the select few customers who are given access to them.
Terms And Conditions Of Microsoft Store Discounts
According to Microsoft, the two types of discounts described above are separate and cannot be added to one another. This means that students will have to choose between the general discount and the student discount, assuming they have found a coupon of each type that applies to the same product. In general, students are given better discounts then the general public, but this is not a hard and fast rule. Microsoft can decide at its own leisure to make a better discount available for the general public, and often does. With either discount available, however, you are sure to find excellent deals on the Microsoft Store website that you would not be able to get anywhere else.
